Rated 1 out of 5 by from Needs a minimum load I have bought two of these units neither worked on a single 10W LED unit without slaving an additional halogen lamp in the circuit as well. The statement in the Q&A section that these do not have a minimum load requirement is false.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product This is the second one that I have purchased. The first one for 8 led bulbs worked without the need to adjust. The second for one 10w led bulb only dimmed slightly and the adjustment of the minimum setting did not seem to work as during the programming it did the three stage dimming to show that it was activated but did not then turn off and back one that is the next step - it instead immediately went back to full brightness. I tried this several times and then tried changing it to the second type of setting (for Les builds) and that worked perfectly and it dimmed very low without flicker. Perhaps the fact that there was only one 10w build stopped the first setting from adjusting. The outer plate could be nicer and when adjusting there is a lag. I have a mk one also and the plate is nicer and less lag (it has the lag when you turn it on that is normal but not so much of a lag during adjustment), However this is used to power 15 led down lighters so perhaps this makes a difference. Also not sure whether the mk can be programmed as it worked straight away - i.e I have not checked. Having said that this dimmer is less than half price of the mk and I would recommend as there is no flicker or buzz. Gave it five stars for reliability but only owned for a few weeks - however no problems.

Plaster depth box use

Will this dimmer fit in a plaster depth box without any additional spacing device?
Asked by: DIYXpert
Hello DIYXpert, thanks for your question. The recommended back box depth for this dimmer is 25mm, so anything this deep or deeper will be fine. Thanks for your interest in Varilight.

Can I use this dimmer in a 3 way switching circuit, with the other 2 switches being normal on/off switches

Asked by: RR53
Yes but you will need a two way and a intermediate switches, and it will switch on at the seting your dimmer is set.

Does this come with a a pattress/adaptor to allow it to be fitted in an existing 16mm back box

I believe the similar MK dimmer includes such an adaptor

No instructions found on Varilight website on how to adjust dimmer for LED lamps. My sister has thrown the original instructions away and because the first lamps were non LED the problem of flickering didn't exist.

Just need basic instruction on how to adjust the dimmer?
Asked by: JJBoy
Hi JJBoy, thanks for your question. The instruction leaflet can be found on the Varilight website under Technical-Instruction Leaflets-V-Pro Intelligent Dimmers. You will want to look at the sections titled 'How to change your driving mode' and 'How to perform a factory reset'. Thanks for your interest in Varilight.
