Syslite question
« on: November 17, 2022, 01:38 PM »
While the Syslite is great if your working in a big area, I'm not. The room lighting is terrible too.

In this case its to dang bright.

Will a Syslite work with a dimmer?

I assume you mean the Syslite Duo?

The regular Syslite, which has an internal battery and can run with the BPC batteries, has two brightness settings and I have almost never found it to be too bright for any room or area.  The Syslite Duo, on the other hand, I thought I was going to get turned in to the authorities when I used it outdoors after sundown once...

Here is a good discussion about the concerns with attempting to dim an LED light like the Syslite Duo:
