    At 60$ a pop, these are pricey bulbs. I wouldn't experiment on them, the result would most likely be degraded performance or dead bulb, they have micro electronics inside them. Applying the wrong power specs to any micro electronic usually destroys the circuits in the device. I understand you don't plan to dim them, but someone else might dim your bulb without realizing before its too late.

  • If the dimmer is set to anything other than 100% the bulb will not turn on. I have tried these bulbs with dimmers and that was my outcome, besides these have built in dimmers
