You can unscrew the two screws that hold the fixture together and put insulation of some kind around the ballast for best results to ballast working in cold weather.

Answer: 
First of all, LED and fluorescent are two very different things. There is LED, then there is fluorescent. To answer your question, yes the LED T8 tube lights are compatible with this fixture.

Answer: 
No. This is not a water resistant apparatus, any condensation that results in water droplets forming will likely cause damage to the light fixture.

Rated 3.4 out of 5 by 13 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A good inexpensive lighting option A lot of people talk about the loose ballast connectors when they open the packaging. They are not poorly installed, they are purposely unsecured for shipping. You will understand why when you open the package. I put 4 of these in my basement shop and they are awesome.. June 1, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good for the price... Arrived with two of the sockets loose within the fixture. Had to fish em out with tweezers and pull to secure. Initially one light (brand new Phillips) seemed a tad brighter than the other, but the light output evened out after a minute or so. One still very slightly dimmer, but I didn't bother to switch to see if it was a bulb or the ballast. Attic installation, and it'll be just fine. Won't know how well the ballast works until the fall, but they came on instantly with no flickering, upon installation. And it was probably in the low 60's at the time. Time will tell, but one could do a lot worse for $20. May 11, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I have 6 of them I like these light fixtures, they need to be modified to attached to ceiling but no big deal. they turn on in a snap and if you use the daylight bulbs they are bright and work great. 3 in garage, 1 in shed, 2 in attic. November 17, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by good lights I like the cold start lights for my garage it is not heated so it is very nice to have lights that come on in the cold weather months. they work very well for me. July 4, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not what I expected Aside from the fact that Home Depot shipped these in the manufactures packaging without placing them in another box. 2 out of the 4 I purchased were damaged in shipping and had to be returned by UPS. The boxes were not even taped closed. Sockets are poorly installed. You have to fix the metal tabs that hold them in first. Once installed they are OK, but let's see how long the ballasts last. Don't think I will buy anything online from Home Depot ever again. March 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Garage LED shop light A DIY auto garage light that works in the cold and does not need to warm up to have light April 13, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Poor Purchase This light is cheaply made and a waste of money. Also, tube sockets aren't anchored good and come loose when installing tube. March 8, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great for shop If you want a low price shop light that provides good lighting for specific areas this is a good choice. Instead of lighting up the entire shop I put pull chains on each and only light up the area where I am working. March 1, 2016
