Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor life I have a few of these and one by one they have all broken after about a year - the push on/off fails

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Break whenever a bulb blows Have used 4 of these and each has broken as soon as soon a halogen bulb blows. Also not compatible with LED bulbs. However, they look good and the metal front plate is thicker than some other brands.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Foolishly had another After the first one broke I decided to try another one as opposed to changing to a normal switch / another brand dimmer. Big mistake. This one had a lower buzzing than the first on install, but only lasted a week before it popped (and this time tripping the RCD in the middle of the night). Look at other reviews for LAP dimmers on Screwfix. They simply do not work properly and are not fit for purpose. Do not buy!!

Is this dimmer a Trailing Edge OR Leading Edge Dimmer?

I understand that trailing edge dimmers are LED ready? Thanks
Asked by: helpmeout
Hello helpmeout. You are right that Trailing Edge dimmers are suitable for use with LED lighting but this dimmer is a Leading Edge dimmer. Thank you for using Q&A (CW)

Is this suitable for LED bulbs?

On the description it states: Max. Dimmable Load LED) 50 W Min. Dimmable Load (LED) 5 W What does this mean? We plan on having a light fitting which uses: Supplied bulb: 9 x G9 3.5W LED Maximum bulb wattage: 3.5W. Will this be compatible?
Asked by: Amoon
Thanks for the response. I don't think this dimmer is suitable though as the minimum dimmable low will likely be much less than 5 W, therefore a Trailing edge or LED Ready Dimmer will be more appropriate. Otherwise it may be noisy and ficker. All very confusing.

Can this dimmer switch be used to dim two 16w LED bulbs cool white,6500K - 1521 Lumens dimmable

Asked by: Zitoni
Hello Zitoni, These lights will not be compatible. You will need a trailing edge dimmer as they are compatible with LED switches. For example product code: 6522F. You can find alternatives by searching "LED Dimmer" or "Trailing Edge Dimmer". Thank you for using Q and A.
