Cold must be from people who've never had to buy dimmer switches. Hot from me. Even the original £6.99 would have been a pretty good price.

Crabtree stuff is really good, at £2.99 this is a steal.

i presume these are not online at the moment then unless i have missed them

Are these two way?

So as long as I keep my bucket of cotton wool filled with nail varnish remover away from my wires etc which will be dangling from my ceiling and walls (as they do) then I'll be fine ?

Being serious for a second, It really depends on a number of factors, your dimmer switches rating ? Lets say it is rated for 100W and you are dimming 350W of bulbs, yep its going to 'break down' as you call it.

ahh that might be it. Ive got 4x50w bulbs i didnt know the dimmer switch had to be 200w aswell because i dont remember it saying on the packet the switch was in. I assumed it was universal just buy any, thanks for the info.

Will pop in to check if it is indeed made by Crabtree, if it is this should be scorching, but as a dimmer won't appeal to everyone it won't.

dimmer switches are NOT compatible with energy saving light bulbs.....remember this before making your purchase!!!!
