Which dimmer switch for LED bulbs?

I've got matching MK switches and sockets virtually all round the house now. Just decorated the kids' bedrooms and hit a slight snag. I've replaced the old 60w tungsten bulbs with new 100w equivalent LED lights (Dial ones, from B&Q - https://www.diy.com/departments/dia...-led-dimmable-light-bulb/3663602667568_BQ.prd.)

The bulbs are dimmable, and we have dimmer switches fitted, however they aren't working properly. I suspect because the dimmer switches are old ones rated for old loads.

I've tried a newer V-Pro dimmer which sort of works, however there are 2 issues - 1) it doesn't really dim much & 2) the bulb doesn't appear to get to full brightness, so not ideal.

Can anyone recommend a decent dimmer switch for 15w LED bulbs? My preference would be MK but they don't appear to do one in the normal MK range.

V-Pro is the all round best choice god dimming LEDs.

They are programmable do you can set dimming limits.
Sounds like you need to read the instructions and set up the dimmer. once you have mastered that, go and buy some more V-Pro dimmers.
