This bulb will get along with many of the dimmers we sell. It works well on all LED/CFL dimmers, but we recommend Lutron Credenza (TTCL-100H) and Leviton Illumatech (IPL06-10Z) for no fuss dimming at around 0%/4% (measured/perceived), without the need to adjust low-end trim. We found good compatibility on all ELV dimmers, except Lutron Vierti (VTELV-600M) due to an insufficient load during testing. Amongst ELV dimmers, we recommend Lutron Maestro Wireless (MRF2-6ELV-120) for the best performance with ease of wireless dimming control. We saw performance at around 0%/5% on this dimmer. Lutron Diva (DVELV-303P) and Lutron Skylark Contour (SELV-303P) performed well at around 3%/16%, with flicker occurring below 3% measured. Additionally this bulb works very well on a wide selection of Magnetic Low Voltage dimmers, specifically: Leviton Sureslide (6613-PL) 0%/5%, Lutron Skylark (SLV-603P) 0%/4%, and Lutron Maestro Wireless (MRF2-6ND-120) 0%/4%. Nova T (NTLV-400VA), 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. LED/CFL and some MLV dimmers do not require a neutral wire.
