Metal Lamp Touch Switch Module
Even the touch on, touch off, type controls do not get along well with CFL's. That is why you don't see them on lamps in California (unless they are halogen or LED, CA Title 24 mandates that the plug in lamp comes with CFL's in the box)
You can still buy a plug in touch control, but it is not going to be reliable with CFL's. If you go back to incandescents, they seem to work OK.
I prefer a 3 level touch control with a touch disc that is wired to the plug in unit. You can get them at Lowes or HD for about $10.
