Use Lutron Diva (DVELV-303P) or Skylark (SELV-303P) Electronic Low Voltage dimmers. We saw performance of about 8%/28% (measured/perceived) in our tests of those dimmers. They may possibly flicker a bit at the very bottom unless you use several bulbs. We did not see any flickering in our tests, though. All dimmers will struggle with such a light load, and additional bulbs will improve performance. The best performance we found was on Leviton Vizia (VPE06-1) Electronic Low Voltage dimmer but we don't sell it. Dimming 12 volt JC 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.
