NEW BULB AT INTRODUCTORY PRICING!
High/Medium/Low built-in sequential dimming turns your existing On/Off switch into a dimmer - no rewiring needed.
No expensive external dimmers to buy, or extra wiring to run. Just install this bulb into your existing fixture. Then just flick your existing switch to step sequentially through the 3 brightness levels. So, should your mood find the lights a bit too bright, just flick the switch to set a new mood, and a lower brightness level.
How does it work?
This bulb features the same constant-current electronics and super-bright warm white LEDs as our other G4 LED bulbs, but it also includes an on-board IC that varies the number of LEDs that are illuminated based on the sequencing of your existing on/off switch. A simple concept that is even simpler to use.
If the bulb has been off for more than about 5 seconds, it will always revert to its default start-up mode, which is full-brightness (180 Lumens, 9-LEDs). From this mode a simple flick of the switch (off/on) jumps to the next mode, which is medium-brightness (120 Lumens 6-LEDs). A final switching brings you to the low-brightness setting (60 Lumens, 3-LED). If you turn off the lights, when you come back later and turn them on, they will default to the full-brightness mode.
There is no limit to how many bulbs you can have on a circuit and still allow dimming. In any one circuit you can replace all of the bulbs, or just a few in areas that might be too harsh. No other dimmer allows this flexibility to dim specific bulbs. The best part is that when the bulbs are dimmed, they are also using proportionally less power. So, at 1/3 brightness, they are also at 1/3 the Wattage. Leaving the boat but still want it to look like you are aboard? Just dim the lights and conserve the power.
This bulb is 30mm in diameter, and will fit well into most small G4 puck lights like the one pictured (at left), but our extra long pins may need to trimmed slightly, or the fixture's redundant reflector removed, to allow the bulb to be perfectly centered as shown. Both are simple to accomplish, and we have a 100% fitment guarantee.
LEDs have been installed two weeks and still working. I’ll come back after a year for another review
