    Hi all,

    Has anyone swapped out a Gen 1 dimmer and noticed an improvement, for example better dimming range (stable/no flicker at lower light levels), or more even graduation between dimming levels?

    This is quite pivotal. At some point in the future I’d like to replace all of my Gen 1 kit, but is Gen 2 the answer? I’m kind of hoping so, but…

    Hi Chester,

    I doubt it from my experience so far.

    I have two rooms with the same LED GU10 light bulbs fitted. One room is on a G1 dimmer and the bulbs work pretty well. The other had a standard light switch but yesterday I replaced this with a G2 dimmer.

    The bulbs on the G2 dimmer perform very badly with constant flicker whilst the same bulbs in other room which are still on a G1 dimmer work fine.

    Whether the number of lights is the issue, I’m not sure. Still, it’s not looking like the answer to your problems!
