A: You can dim these light bulbs by using a dimmable switch.
A: I do not dim these bulbs, however dimmable LEDs will dim if you use a LED compatible wall switch (the driver will eliminate the hum from the bulb)
A: Yes it can be dimmed with a lamp dimmer. You will need Lutron #TTCL-100H-(color) is a Credenza line and the # I show is for the LED model. Looked it up on Home Depot site is not shown, your local store should be able to order it for you if no to http://www.lutron.com/en-S/general/Pages/LutronStore/LutronStore.aspx for a list of stores that may carry it. I have used this dimmer before is great. You plug it into the outlet then plug lamp into it, has a cord with the dimmer on the end of it. Sure you will love it
A: OP here. I ended up purchasing the 100 watt dimmable bulbs and the Lutron Casetta Wireless Pico Wireless system. I. LOVE. IT!!! Pico let me plug a dimmer into the wall and then plug my lamps into it. I put the sticking the remote to the wall (it is designed to look like the rocker switch of a standard wall switch) in a location where there was no switch and so much more convenient. This set-up was expensive, but the lighting is warm and inviting. So worth it! I'm sure the 75 watt dimmable bulbs would work well with this dimmer.
A: This bulb is dimmed from an external dimmer switch (on wall,, etc.). Cree does make a "smart" bulb that can be dimmed by remote; however, I have not used this bulb at this time and do not how it compares to this bulb in question.
A: This bulb is 1100 lumens.
A: This bulb provides 1100 llumens
A: 1100 lumens
A: Look in the specifications section of bulb. Make sure the LED bulb uses less than 60W.
A: LED bulbs are rated by the Watts they use and by the lumens they output. What is confusing is that they are often also advertised as being equivalent in light output to a specific wattage incandescent (old school) lightbulb. So the 60 W equivalent LED doesn't use 60 W. Instead it probably uses 13-14 W and generates maybe 800 lumens, much like an old 60 W incandescent bulb would. This should all be listed on the LED bulb packaging. The trick is that a 13 W LED generates way less heat and uses way less current then 60 W, so it is almost surely safe in a table lamp rated for a 60 W incandescent. The only real exception to this is with completely enclosed fixtures, which can slowly build up enough heat to damage LED bulbs that aren't designed for that application. I doubt this is a problem with your table lamp.
A: If your socket is PLASTIC, a larger incandescent wattage will present a fire hazard. Porcelain or metal clade sockets are more money but are far safer. LED bulbs do not create as much heat so you can go larger in what you have.
A: No. The LED bulbs pull a fraction of what an incandescent bulb does. Usually less than 15 watts, so even though the light output (which is measured in lumens) is equal to or grater than the incandescent bulb, it uses much less actual wattage.
A: You can use any LED bulb you want, there would be no heat problem or safety problem. the 100 watt A19 LED lamp is 14.5 watts and that is far from the 60 watt rating of the fixture. You will get the enjoyment of not having to change bulbs for about 20 years.
A: None of these other answers are correct. Wattage, fit, 'it seems to work', etc do not dictate whether an LED bulb can be used in an enclosed fixture. LED bulbs produce heat, and need a way to vent that heat in order to remain within the advertised lifespan. Most LED bulbs require open air to do this, and are therefore not 'rated' for enclosed fixtures. If you used a open-air rated bulb in an enclosed fixture, it will work - just for a shorter period than it's stated life span. This particular bulb is rated for enclosed fixtures, as stated in the specifications above (that is most likely thanks to the strange shape, which is probably a form of heat spreader/sink.)
A: It's working for me so far.
A: Yes the wattage of most A19 bulbs are less than 15 watts as long as they will fit in the fixture without toughing the other surfaces in the light you will be more than fine. Am sure you will get years of enjoyment out of the LED lightbulbs
A: I had one of the Cree bulbs mounted upside down, in a closed fixture in the kitchen. It failed after 2 years, or about 4,000 hours of usage (we keep it on a lot). Had bad luck with Phillips bulbs in enclosed fixtures, too. Check the newest bulbs: usually the warning not to use in an enclosed fixture is printed only on the bulb in teeny-tiny print. Also, because LEDs use so little current, putting a bigger equivalent bulb in a lower rated socket is no problem, in my opinion.
A: No....there is a new version coming out soon that will allow enclosed spaces. They already have it for 60W Equivalent. There is no fire danger from using them in enclosed spaces, but they will have a shorter life as the LED Drivers will fail from the build up of heat.
