    I have a couple of small rooms with led spots fitted that need dimming. Where's a good source to pick up a trailing edge dimmer? There doesn't seem to be much choice at the usual outlets!

    The rooms are pretty small so the wattage is tiny so rather not just dim them with a traditional leading edge incandescent jobbie due to humming/flickering issues.

    Cheers all!

    There's a company that does sell them. Cant remember the name something like Fixascrew, can't get it at the moment. Maybe it starts with Screw, something.

    Anyway, whoever it is sells an excellent product, the Varilight V-Pro dimmer range.

    Yep good dimmers indeed the Varilight V-Pro range, have brought several and all work well with LED lamps

    Programmable to work as leading or trailing edge, easy enough to see what mode suits ur lamps best, soft start feature to prolong lamp life, can set min / max light levels and several other features built in

    Several styles of faceplate available from SF, more available on line. Or keep existing faceplates (if dimmer switches) and buy just the dimming module and swap over

    Also ten year guarantee so a good choice to make

    Prefer the zero cross dimmer, v-pro need reprogramming if the power trips.
