Product Description

The Parmida LED Technologies 4FT LED Hybrid T8 Tube can be installed with or with a ballast. Choose between plug and play (see ballast compatibility list), or ballast bypass installation methods. The Hybrid T8 can be installed using single or double-ended connection, and can install directly into your fixture’s original shunted sockets (tombstones), eliminating the need to retrofit your fixture with non-shunted sockets (single-ended installation requires non-shunted sockets/tombstones). This tube is constructed with a shatterproof film sleeve to protect its glass housing, making it suitable for use in applications that require shatterproof lighting. With a fast and simple installation in the functionality of your choice, this tube is designed for versatility and a positive user experience.

Bypassing the ballast will save you both time and money, as ballasts inevitably fail over time and will require replacement. When using the ballast bypass method, we recommend these lights are installed by a qualified electrician. The plug-and play method allows for a quick and easy installation method, when using a compatible ballast.

1 item for stock, that's all

I love the fact these can be used with or without a ballast, usually, I remove ballast, but if I'm in a hurry, I can stick these in and remove ballast later.
The shatterproof coating makes these ideal for food prep areas, no longer need those covers that are always a problem!

John Fields (Ashland, US)
Great price, quick delivery. Time will tell.

Just put them in. The direct or plug and play feature is very convenient. Hopefully they give us 50,000 hours

sue creel (Baltic, US)
Perfect fit

These lights worked perfectly for me the first time and every time after. Clean bright lights.
