Use Lutron Diva (DVELV-303P) or Skylark (SELV-303P) Electronic Low Voltage dimmers. Leviton Vizia (VPE06-1) will also work, but we do not sell it. We saw performance of about 30%/55% (measured/perceived) in our tests for those dimmers. This is fair performance, not great, but the bulb's price is really the key selling feature. You can spend more on other Halco MR16 bulbs if you need deeper dimming. Dimming 12 volt MR16 bulbs always depends to a certain extent on the transformer in the luminaire, so results may vary. This bulb may not be dimmable on all transformers. We do not recommend LED/CFL, Magnetic Low Voltage or incandescent dimmers for this bulb.
