A touch dimmer circuit is a special version of the switch that goes on and off. The touch dimmer circuit only works if you have electricity flowing through it. For example, if you are using a table lamp, there will be a specification for the maximum wattage.

The problem is that the dimmer for a traditional lamp does not work with an LED lamp. Depending on the design of the dimmer, it can be inconsistent. For some designs, your LED will work at full brightness regardless of how low you set the switch.

We are still trying to find a way to solve this problem. You can put LEDs on your lamps, but they will just be for making the room look nice. They won’t let you read with them or anything like that. Is the dimmer part of the lamp itself, or is it a separate unit?

What is a Touch Dimmer Lamp?

A touch dimmer lamp is a type of light that has an on and off switch. This allows you to turn it on by just touching the base of the lamp, or anywhere else for that matter. These lamps can save energy because they are not using more than necessary when lighting isn’t needed in a room!
