Ballast compatibility resources for plug-and-play T8 LED tubes

If you’re considering an LED plug-and-play replacement for your T8 or T12 linear fluorescent tubes, you need to check your ballasts. The compatibility technology is getting better, but there is still a chance your new plug-and-play tube will not work with your current ballasts. We generally recommend opening a sampling of fixtures around your property to ensure that you aren't basing compatibility off an odd ballast.

Our goal is to make lighting easier – so we’ve pulled together a few manufacturer resources where you can check for ballast compatibility.
