Planning to install a 5 lamp chandelier with dimmable virtual filament lamps. But the dimmer switch I have is rated at 400watt max, 60watt upwards. The 5 lamps are nowhere near that greedy. Are dedicated LED dimmers available, or do I have to use one ordinary incandescent lamp in the mix?

I had 6 LED downlights installed in my boys room and the wife wanted a dimmer switch. My sparky mate did the work but he had to get a dimmer switch that was compatible with the LED downlights and it cost around 25 quid(ish) if I remember.

Used my initiative,(should have done that first) and found this:

less expensive than using incandescent! :thumbright:

I've heard good things about the Varilight V-PRO range of dimmers from my sparky friend in case it's of use :)
