No. Also these only have the standard twist-on light bulb connection hard wired. So you need an adapter if you are installing recessed LED lights with the trim. I think most come with that adapter. Look at the link. You can see the orange plug that can connect right to the orange connector on the housing if it has it. You can also see the adapter included with those Read More

No.
The packaging further indicates not to use this housing with any LED retrofit kits except those made by the manufacturer. It doesn't place those restrictions on any other type of bulb, though.

Answer: 
In this day and age, don't waste your time putting in anything other than R30 LEDs. There is no long term cost benefit analysis where you would want to put incandescents. Given that, they draw about 9 watts each, so your theoretical maximum is about 175 of them, far more than you would ever install on one circuit. Talk of 100 watt bulbs in these is silly. The LEDs stay much, much cooler also.

Answer: 
If you are going to use LED , you can install too many of they, it all depends on the load you are going to pull from one circuit.

Answer: 
The housing is irrelevant to loading. It will be wholly dependent on the the number and type of light plus any additional loads on the circuit along with wiring. Typically lighting is on a 15a breaker with 14 gauge (14/2) wiring. With nothing else on it you could put about (14) 100 watt lights on the circuit.

Answer: 
You can install up to 100% of your lighting amperage capacity, meaning if you have a 15 amp circuit you are allowed to use all 15 amps which is (for example) 15 fixtures with 100 watt light bulbs in them for a total of 1,500 watts. If you were to use the new LED bulbs you could have (for example) 100 fixtures with 11 watt LED bulbs in them for a total of 1,100 watts.

Yes, they support LED bulbs. For the dimmer, you *MUST* look at the details on your preferred LED bulb package. There are still some lower cost ones that are NOT dimmable and in some cases create a fire hazard when incorrectly matched to a dimmer. Basically the dimmer decision is only dictated by the LED bulb choice, not the recessed can. I used these for two rooms in my home w/LED bulbs (there should be Read More

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 70 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by So much simpler than I thought! I'm glad I read the reviews before purchasing, as these were so simple to install. I was adding 8 cans to a vaulted ceiling, and standing on top of a 16 foot ladder while trying to wire a complicated light fixture would have been terrible if that fixture wasn't one of these. They fit perfectly into the holes, the clips hold extremely well, and the quick wiring adapter is heaven sent. Literally these reduced my install time to minutes for all 8 lights (once I got all the wires run!). August 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Aluminum Recessed IC Remodel Housing The 6 in. Aluminum Recessed IC Remodel Housing (6-Pack) is very easy to install the connector for wire is a ready there. June 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome service and great product ! Great product would order again perfect for my project delivery was on time ! September 6, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Rubbish I've had several of these units fail while finishing out installation. When inserting the bulb, the socket ring cracked and shattered causing the bulb to fall out of the socket. This is not something that can be repaired and required the replacement of the whole unit. A handful of the housings were out of round, which made fitting them through the hole a bit difficult. The J-box on it is actually pretty nice. I didn't like how rigid the arm supporting it was. For a reno unit, you'd hope to have a little more play so you can address the work you're tying into. January 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by can light It worked for what i needed.. saved a few bucks from online and got it delivered pretty quick August 23, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by flipper house quality I bought these cans because I didn't feel I had the money to spend on the Halo version and didn't know the difference between the 2. Visually they look similar, the difference is in the metal quality. The CE version is very thin and breaks very easily. If you are using these expect some to break and some to possibly be broken when you get them, simply because of being cheaply made. July 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Unadvertised : Has quick Connectors that was a bonus Was looking for IC unit that can be used in bathroom (damp places ), this was a perfect one, with good pricing . When I ordered them I wished they had quick connectors, fortunately enough I was happy they did though it was no where in the description or specs. July 19, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Moderate level install These retrofit cans were relatively easy to install. The biggest issue was getting the hole right. The can comes with a template, but it seemed to be a non-standard size for my hole cutter requiring me to expand the hole with a blade. The electrical box was fast and easy to use. Installation once the hole was right was a snap. June 7, 2016
