Thread: Dimmer power consumption

  1. #1

    Dimmer power consumption

    So the question came up with my wife... how much power does the wall and the lamp dimmers use as they are 'always on' devices.

    Guessing from the size of the capacitor from the LUT-MLC which is a 6mA @ 120v capacitor, I would say less than 6mA

    They used to list this in PDF specifications - and they still do for RadioRA 2 dimmers - it is 0.2W. Caseta dimmers shouldn't be too much different, one would hope...
