Do warm, very dimmable LED lights exist?

We want to replace all of interior incandescent light bulbs with dimmable, warm LED lights. Just purchased 1.2W G4 replacements for 10W incand. The new bulbs do dim but not very much. At their dimmest, they are probably 2-3x brighter than the incand. bulbs. Has anyone found a good LED bulb that works like the incandescents?


Thank you,


Dale

Thank you.

Do the ones you chose dim as well as the incandescents did with the Multiplex wiring?

I just looked up my old order, the ones I bought are discontinued.
Their customer service was great. Try calling them.

Thanks John. Or is it Debi? I ordered some at the lowest Lumen level I could find (105) and soft white. I'm replacing only 10W incand. bulbs in the under-cabinet lights to start. But the first ones I ordered just don't dim enough to give that really nice background, evening light, like the incand. ones do.

Thanks John! Didn't wanna assume...
Very helpful. I ordered some at 105 Lumens hoping they'll dim to a nice soft background light.

I've been through several different types before found ones I like. One problem with some was that when dimmed they flickered.

Right Paul. That's what I read. I wanted to avoid that for sure, but I also want that very dim, soft light that the original JC G4's produce when dimmed all the way down or close to that. So what type did you end up liking and why?

Yes, the superbrightled bulbs flicker ever since slightly. Personally, I only notice it if I look directly at it.

After switching my lights to LED I noticed the flickering too. I checked the spade connectors that hold the fuses in the panel box and found several to be loose. I squeezed the spade connector edges down with needle nose pliers so it would hold the fuse tighter. Now no more flickering... Doug.

Good to know Doug. What are the specs. (Lumens, Wattage replacement or Wattage for the LED, etc.) for the ones you settled on? Do they dim to a similar level as the incandescent ones? A soft, warm light.


Thank you,


Dale

I did mine so long ago, dimmable wasn't available and really hasn't been an issue.
We want dim lighting ? We just turn off most of the lights except the ones that become 'background' lighting
