Important Note

BEFORE you turn on a dimmable CCFL light bulb...

Please understand that dimmable cold cathode fluorescent (CCFL) light bulbs will not work properly at the same voltage settings used for incandescent light bulbs. If you simply replace your incandescent light bulbs without adjusting your dimmer, your new dimmable CCFL light bulbs will flicker and extinguish at the low voltage setting. Therefore, we recommend the following procedure when installing dimmable CCFL light bulbs:

  1. Turn off the power to your current incandescent light bulbs.
  2. Replace the incandescents with your new dimmable CCFL light bulbs.
  3. Re-energize the lighting circuit with your dimmer in the "full light" setting.
  4. Slowly dim your new CCFL light bulbs until they just begin to flicker.
  5. From that point, raise the light level slightly until all CCFL light bulbs are operating without flicker at a dimmed level. Set this level as your new "low setting."

This procedure should prevent flickering, extinguishing at low levels, and early failure of CCFL light bulbs. If, however, these difficulties occur, replace any CCFL light bulb with an incandescent light bulb. The addition of an incandescent or inductive load will stop the flicker, allow a lower light level setting, and should prolong the life of your CCFL light bulbs. Please let us know if we can help in any other way. (3/7/10)

Customer Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 4 out of 5 by The best value in a truly dimmable CFL I have about 12 of these in service in my home - all on dimmers. These are the only CFL bulbs that dim to a useful degree and also turn on reasonably quickly (unlike USHIO). Hot cathode CFLs are almost as costly, only dim slightly and have to be turned on to maximum before dimming down. These cold cathode lamps can be turned on dim (although 1000 bulbs does not recommend it) and work fine. The disadvantage with all the cold cathode bulbs is the modest maximum wattage. I use them in multiple-bulb chandeliers and bedside lamps on touch-dimmers. I had one defective bulb a few years ago and 1000 bulbs exchanged it no problem. These are not perfect but are the best value in a dimmable lamp until LEDs come down in price. July 1, 2011
