None of these replies are correct when it comes to LED lamps. I.E. they are wrong.

I am a LED fixture and bulb manufacturer. I am also a Lutron OEM supplier. I have been after Lutron to give us a max lamp per dimmer figure for over a year, and they have yet to come up with it.
That being said, inrush current in lay terms is the momentary power rush used by an LED lamp. It plays havoc with ALL makes of dimmers (not switches) and causes a multitude of problems.
Buy a good dimmer from a vendor with a good warranty. Don't think of overloading the dimmer.

Answer: 
This dimmer would not go by the equivalent wattage, but instead the actual wattage of the CFL or LED bulbs being used. So for example if the 65W equivalent bulb only used 8W of energy, you would use the 8W instead of the 65W. As long as the total is under the 150W maximum, you should not have any problem with 6 bulbs however you will still want to make sure the bulbs being used are on Lutron’s approved Read More

Answer: 
You SHOULD be able to. This dimmer is rated for 150W. So if you want to put six bulbs on it, they will each have to be less than 25W (150W / 6 bulbs). A typical 60W equivalent CFL bulb is actually 13W. A typical 60W equivalent LED bulb is closer to 10W. So you SHOULD be okay. However, please double check the actual wattage of the bulbs that you plan to use and make sure they are less than 25W each.

Answer: 
add up the total number of watts for your bulbs.The max wattage is 150 W for CFL/LED, or 600 W Incandescent/Halogen. For the Incandescent/Halogen the max number of watts must be reduced if any of the side fins are removed on the switch. Here is the website for the spec sheet. http://www.lutron.com/TechnicalDocumentLibrary/369-334A.pdf

Will these switches flicker at low settings with GE LED 10w dimmable recessed downlights (model # 14812)?

I currently have two sets of 3 of these downlights installed. When they are dimmed, they flicker badly. I don't know the brand of the dimmable switch currently installed (but I know it's not Lutron). The box for these lights lists the Skylark Contour CTCL-153P as a compatible dimmer. I don't want to go to the trouble of changing the switches if they are still going to flicker at the lower settings.

They have an adjustment feature that is to be set when installing the dimmer (face plate covers the adjustment control) that allows three choices for the lowest dim level so that flicker can be eliminated.

Answer: 
In my very short experience (one night), the answer is NO.
There is no flicker at all, even when dimming (5) LEDs to only about 15% of full brightness setting (85% dimmed). There is only some very faint flickering in (1) LED when the dimmer is set to minimum (I guess that is equivalent to less than 10% maximum, or 90% dimmed).

Answer: 
It is difficult to say as all LEDs are manufactured differently. Some LEDs may have trouble staying stable at low light levels. The CTCL-153PDH-WH is designed to handle LEDs at lower light levels but we would not be able to say how low the dimmer can take it before the bulb is unable to stay stable. That being said, one advantage to the CTCL-153PDH dimmer is that there is a low end trim adjustment, so if Read More

That being said, one advantage to the CTCL-153PDH dimmer is that there is a low end trim adjustment, so if you do get down to a specific level and the LED begins flickering, you can turn the wheel and adjust how low the dimmer will go, and in turn cancel out the levels where the bulb is unstable.

You can use this product to dim the lights on a ceiling fan if the lights are controlled separately from the fan but this product is not rated to control a fan directly.

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 129 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good Dimmer, versitile and matches the other dimmers and switches. We have this switch in multiple location: one is as a two-way switch running six LED floods in the Kitchen. An identical switch operates eight LED floods over the living-room TV-viewing area. A third single-pole switch operates the wagon-wheell chandelier with Edison bulbs - so this is a very versatile switch. At the lowest setting the dimmer provides a mild ambient mood, while at the highest they give full illumination depending on the bulb wattage. Wiring as a two-way was a bit tricky and as always it is vital to get the "traveler" wires correct so that the switch can be turned on and off from each location. It matches the other wall switches nicely. April 12, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works Great, Installs Easy Installation was simple (for an experienced DIYer) but beware that this device takes a generous amount of box space. The overall switch is aesthetically perfect and operates smoothly. The on/off switch is a bit small since we are accustomed to the large toggle switch. Overall it is a great product. August 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great deal toughest part was to remove old switch from outlet box.. easy instructions, simple to install. August 23, 2016

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Update - bulb important THIS UPDATES MY REVIEW OF June 16 2016. I tried several bulbs which indicated they would work, however did not work optimally. Those names will not be mentioned, but the bulb that now works properly all the time (and dims nicely) is a Phillips Soft White dimmable LED 60 watt equivalent. I don't care for the softer, more traditional 'warmer' glow of the light (very similar to a standard incandescent in color), but it works the way it should. I'll probably look for this brand/ style in the 'Daylight' model. Didn't mean to pan the switch when it, in fact, will work properly 100% of the time with the proper bulb. June 20, 2016
