Use Leviton SureSlide (6674-10W) or Leviton Illumatech (IPL06-10Z) LED/CFL dimmers for the best performance, without the need for trim adjustment or a neutral wire. We saw performance at around 1%/13% (measured/perceived) on these dimmers. Lutron Skylark Contour (CTCL-153P) (4%/21%) and Lutron Ariadni (AYCL-153P) are also compatible; performing at around 12%/34% once low end trim is adjusted to take out bad behavior. Be sure you adjust the low-end trim control to remove undesired behavior when using them. Lutron Credenza plug-in lamp dimmer (TTCL-100H) has no low-end trim, and will also dim the bulb to around 12%/34%. Amongst the ELV dimmers, we recommend Lutron Maestro Wireless (MRF2-6ELV-120) to achieve great dimming with the ease of wireless control. We saw performance of about 4%/19% (measured/perceived) on this dimmer. Electronic Low Voltage Leviton Vizia (VPE06-1) had similar performance, but we do not sell it. Leviton Sureslide (6613-PL) 3%/16% and Maestro Wireless (MRF2-6ND-120) 5%/22% Magnetic Low Voltage Dimmers are also compatible and recommended for this bulb. Lutron Nova T (NTLV-400VA), Leviton Illumatech (IPM06-1), Lutron Radio RA2 (RRD-10ND), WattStopper Paddle (PDMLV-703), WattStopper Slide (SDMLV-603) MLV dimmers, Lutron Radio RA2 (RRD-6NA), and WattStopper Universal (DCD267) Phase Adaptive dimmers are also compatible, but we do not sell them. We do not recommend incandescent dimmers for this bulb.
