Dimmable CFL power consumption
« on: November 06, 2011, 12:08:03 PM »

I mentioned this dimmable CFL
in another thread and, just out of curiosity, made a quick measurement of its power consumption at 100% (15VA) and 0% (1VA) dim level using an LM465 and my Kill-A-Watt meter in VA mode.
If I had the time to use the cumulative kWh method I used here...
I suspect I would get similar numbers.
