Questions & Answers
I bought these a few years ago and they are great, but I tried to put an LED bulb in them and it didn't work. It just glowed dimly. Can the transformer in this housing support LED dimming? If so, then I guess I need to get a new dimmer?
The magnetic transformer in this housing can be used with low-voltage MR16 LED lamps but there are a few factors to consider.
For best results you would want to use an LED Dimmer (Click Here to View), which has adjustments for different LED lamps.
Additionally while this housing should be compatible with most low-voltage MR16 LED lamps there may be a few manufacturer's LED lamps which have compatibility issues.
