Re: Dimmer Lamp AC

You need to know the power rating of the dimmer. For example - if the dimmer is rated at 100watts, you can drive one 100 watt lamp from it or four 25 watt lamps from it.

The rating is usually in watts, but it may also be specified in amps. Look on the side or back of the dimmer for the specifications.
