Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feels and looks quality’s Looks good and the switch has a smooth action. This was a straight swap for an older one but a lot better quality.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unstable output Fitted with 5 brand new Lap LEDs. Would not even switch on at low although the instructions said the dimmer would work with most LEDs at factory setting. You'd think it would work with their own brand in that case - sadly not. Adjusted the setting screw on the back for minimum setting - you need a VERY small screwdriver. All that done only to find that it flickers between medium and low settings. More precisely it gets a bit brighter and then a second or two later it goes dimmer. Also, the rear of the dimmer rotated freely from the face plate. Not impressed. Going back for a refund.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish and LED ready Good quality and very stylish Also works really well with an adjustable LED dim settings that actually works unlike some of the more expensive brands Really surprised by the quality But could just do with some slightly longer screws.

Can a trailing edge innards be used with this as its shell?

Would this be compatible with the Varilight V-Pro Rotary & Push LED Dimmer Module, which supposedly replaces any non-LED dimmer switch's innards with a trailing edge dimmer suitable for LEDs?

what is meant by derating and why is it required?

Asked by: Average
The very rapid on off that dimmers use to dim the light effects some lights more than others. So if you dim 250watts with a 250watt dimmer you have the dimmer working at full capacity for the full period of time. Its like having a 1600 cc car pull a wagon trailer, it will pull the trailer but slowly and will damage the engine eventually. Same thing happens with the dimmer, it eventually gets so hot that its integrity breaks down, and the rapid cycles used to turn on and off become unstable. If you dim 250watts with a 400watt dimer the dimmer has an extra reserve for when it is operating at the desired wattage.The on off cycles are fast enough to allow the 250watts being dimmed to never drop below the minimum operating current for the lamp and is more stable
