TCP's R20 bulb combines the brightest LEDs with the best performance on many of our dimmers, and provides over 80% energy savings over incandescent equivalents. These bulbs contain a single light source and a diffusing lens, resulting in a wide flood beam. The heatsink is painted white to match most interior designs.

This bulb will get along with many of the dimmers we sell. It works well on all of the LED/CFL dimmers once the low-end trim is adjusted to remove bad behavior at the bottom. Lutron Diva (DVCL-153P), Lutron Skylark Contour (CTCL-153P), and Lutron Ariadni (AYCL-153P) all performed at around 2%/14% (measured/perceived), with pop-on occurring below 7% measured. This bulb also worked well on all Electronic Low Voltage 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 excellent performance and the added feature of wireless dimming control. We saw performance of about 3%/16% (measured/perceived) on this dimmer. Additionally the Magnetic Low Voltage Leviton Sureslide (6613-PL), Lutron Maestro Wireless (MRF2-6MLV), Lutron Maestro Wireless (MRF2-6ND-120), and Lutron Maestro Wireless (MRF2-10D-120) dimmers had good results of about 1%/12%, with pop-on below 3% measured. Lutron Radio RA2 (RRD-10ND) is compatible as well, but we do not sell this. LED/CFL and some MLV dimmers do not require a neutral wire. We do not recommend incandescent dimmers for this bulb.
