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.

Hybrid tubes

We are replacing old technology tubes with these hybrids and getting rid of most of the ballasts as well This is a great product and we are hoping it will lower our lighting costs and provide greater longevity.

Plug 'n Play - or not!

These T8 tubes work great. They are easy to install, no matter if you choose to remove the ballast or not. I recommend them to anyone who wants to upgrade to lighting that is more cost effective (and no more ballast buzz!)....

Erik Baly (Mount Prospect, US)
Excellent As Ballast Bypass So Far

We used them in our church as ballast bypass bulbs. The ballast bypass only bulbs we wanted were out of stock, but these work fine for only slightly more money. So far so good. All installed bulbs are working as intended. Nice consistent brightness and color.
