Read this. Important! Not a question

Although this website says it fits a 25mm back box. It looked big to me so I read the supplied instructions. The instructions says it requires a 35 mm back box

What LED bulbs are compatible and is there a limit to how many?
Asked by: NDSS
Hi NDSS, All BG dimmers are Leading Edge type, so any LED lighting would need to be Leading Edge dimmable. The load range for LEDs is 5-50W, but we would also advise running no more than 10 LEDs per dimmer to avoid them interacting with each other and causing flickering/strobing/buzzing etc.
