Dimming an LED is a lot more challenging. LED’s use a driver board that needs to match the dimmer for the best dimming. If it doesn’t match the LED can be damaged and/or the dimmer can be damaged. Bad results show when if the LED start to flash when dimmed. The Best dimming offers a low 1% dim which is what most people are used to, where the light is barely on. Poor dimming results in only a 10% dim which to the eye is perceived to be only 30-40% dimmed.
