Needed 22 dimmers for a job I am doing and decided to see if I could save some money so I went to Amazon to order some rated for CFL/LED/Incandescent.

what is the real difference between the Lutron TGCL and the Lutron AYCL?

TGCL http://www.amazon.com/Lutron-TGCL-153PH-WH-Toggler-Single-Pole-Toggle/dp/B0052EC160/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1388338811&sr=8-2&keywords=lutron+toggle+dimmer

AYCL http://www.amazon.com/Lutron-AYCL-153P-WH-Ariadni-Incandescent-Single-Pole/dp/B006UTQCA2/ref=sr_1_10?ie=UTF8&qid=1388338811&sr=8-10&keywords=lutron+toggle+dimmer

The TGCL says CFL/LED but when you go to the product description it says its compatible with incandescent and halogen as well, but doesn't list a max wattage for either bulb type.

The AYCL is listed for CFL/LED/Incandescent/Halogen and it lists 150 watt for CFL/LED and 600 watt for incandescent/halogen.

I ordered the AYCL because that's what I normally use but I really want to know what the difference really is between the TGCL and the AYCL.

Am I missing something obvious?

I'm pretty sure the Toggler is the brand name they sell in retail stores only, while Ariadni is sold in wholesalers. Otherwise, I have not been able to figure out the slightest difference between them.
