      • Make sure you have a compatible ballast

      I was unable to use these tubes in my planned fixtures, so I don't really know how to rate them. (I can't comment on how much light they put our or anything.) The important thing to know is that to use these, you need a compatible "instant start" ballast. The Phillips web site has a list of those compatible ballasts. I had planned to use these in some garage shop light fixtures I have (which don't have traditional "ballasts" that you can look up a model number on). These fixtures were purchased within the last few years, use T8 fluorescent tubes, and the lights turn on almost instantly, so I had assumed they were "instant start" (since they come on instantly). However, I tried these LED tubes in two different fixtures, and they wouldn't light in either. I eventually hooked them up to an old T8 ballast I had around, and they did light, so they aren't defective. They just don't work in my shop lights. After some discussion with Philips technical support, they defined "instant start" ballasts as having only one wire per connector (per "tombstone"). If you have two wires, they are called "rapid start" rather than "instant start,", and will not work with these tubes.
