This bulb will get along with many of the dimmers we sell. It works well on all Electronic Low Voltage and Phase Adaptive dimmers. Amongst ELV dimmers Lutron Diva (DVELV-303P) and Skylark (SELV-303P) performed the best at 1%/12% (measured/perceived), with pop-on occurring below 7% measured. This bulb also works on all LED/CFL dimmers at around 12%/35% (measured/perceived), except for Leviton SureSlide (6674-10W) and Leviton Illumatech (IPL06-10Z), once the low-end trim is adjusted to remove bad behavior at the bottom. Additionally the Lutron Diva (DVLV-603P), Lutron Skylark (SLV-603P), and Lutron Ariadni (AYLV-603P) Magnetic Low Voltage dimmers had good results, dimming down to about 5%/22% (measured/perceived). WattStopper Paddle Dimmer (PDMLV-703) and WattStopper Slide Dimmer (SDMLV-603) performed well with this bulb, but we do not sell them.
