Rated 2 out of 5 by from Different depth to other switc All my light switches and sockets are Crabtree Capital so bought this dimmer to match ... except it doesn't :-( It's a slightly different colour white and it's a couple of mm thicker so having two Crabtree Capital switches (normal light switch and this dimmer) in a 2 gang box looks odd - they just don't match at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dimmer switch I don't know why people post reviews when they clearly are using the wrong products such as 12V lamps with transformers or compact fluorescent lamps, everyone knows these will not work - its not the products fault. Rest assured this is a great dimmer, fast acting on/off smooth fast rotary. The only one downside is the very slight flicker when my LED lamp is set to the absolute minimum, if you turn it up ever so slightly the flicker goes off. Anyway I would recommend this without completely.,

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Crabtree Dimmer Only suitable for mains voltage lamps and not 12v lamps via a transformer. Screwfix need to add this to the description At the price, there are much cheaper dimmers on the market that are capable of mains and low voltage lamps

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No useful info This product is not suitable for use with energy saving bulbs. Would be good to know that up front.

Does the switch work ok with mains voltage ses led lamps or will it cause them to flicker on dim?

Asked by: Bowers27
Hello. This particular dimmer is not designed for LED but you may find that it does have compatibility with some LED lamps (although suggest quite low). In addition the minimum wattage of this dimmer would be either 40 or 60 watt, which is quite high for LED, you would need multiple lamps on the circuit for it to have any chance of working. We suggest you purchase a specific dimmer designed for LED lighting. Thank you for your interest in our Crabtree brand, currently celebrating 100 years in the industry.
