Answer: 
The people saying the other lights won't go out are correct. I can verify this as I took mine apart to rewire it for LED bulbs.
The outlet is wired in parallel to the incoming voltage. Even if the ballast, sockets, lightbulbs go out, the outlet on the side of the shop light will still have electricity. As long as nothing happens to the wires inside it should work fine.

Also, the outlet is not wired through the switch so turning off the lamp does not turn off power to the outlet. Read Less

Answer: 
These lights are connected in parallel. They cannot be connected in series as many Christmas light strings. These lights are designed to operate on 120 VAC and each fixture must receive 120 VAC to operate. When connected in parallel (as the designed outlet is connected in each light) each light will receive 120 VAC.

These lights are connected in parallel. They cannot be connected in series as many Christmas light strings. These lights are designed to operate on 120 VAC and each fixture must receive 120 VAC to operate. When connected in parallel (as the designed outlet is connected in each light) each light will receive 120 VAC. Although plugging one light into the outlet of the previous light appears to be series, it is not since the internal wiring in each light fixture connects the outlet in parallel, If two lights are actually connected in series then the 120 VAC power is divided according to the resistance of the fixtures. Assuming that the fixtures are the same then each of the two lights would receive only 60 VAC and would not function. When using the recommended 32 watt tubes, each light fixture would require approximately 1 Amp of current during steady operation. Four lights connected together would require about 5 Amps of current. The maximum recommended current for the outlet is 5 Amps; therefore, you should not connect over a total of four fixtures together. Keep in mind that if you have a wall switch wired into the light circuit, then all of the lights connected to the switch will operate together. Read Less

Answer: 
If one of your fixtures goes out, then all in-line fixtures will also go out.
An example would be, say your fixtures are called A, B, C, and D. Now, let's say that your first fixture is A, and B,C,and D are all plugged into each other. If fixture B goes out, than C, and D will also go out, but A will still be working.
Hope that answers your question.

Depends how they are wired. If wired in series where successive fixtures depend on power from the previous fixture, yes if the ballast fails (no if only 1/more bulbs fail). If wired in parallel where all take power independently from a common source (best way), no.

Answer: 
Yes it can, but you are adding a high degree of difficulty to your project. The whole point of having the plug-in pigtail is to allow you to safely work on a light without turning off the entire lighting circuit. Because this lights can be daisy chained it makes them very easy to install. If you can hardwire the light you can install a switched outlet to plug it into.

This Shoplight has a cord and plug and is intended to be plugged into an outlet and is listed as portable. If you decide to hard wire the fixture you would have to remove the cord and plug which will void the warranty on the fixture. Thanks for your question.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Flimsy I had one that I bought from home depot and liked it. I Tried to find more of them about a year later, no home depot within 100 miles carried them in the store anymore. So I ordered 4 of them online. When they arrived, they were pretty beat up. Several areas of the sheet metal was bent, including areas where there was no damage to the box. That indicates to me that quality control isn't the best. The sheet metal is just flimsy and bends easily. Some of the pin connectors were bent outward to the extent that a bulb couldn't even be installed. I had to push the connectors back into place and try to bend the sheet metal in to hold them there. The cheap clips that are supposed to hold the protective grate closed don't clip on at all. You have to reform them if you want them to do anything. They do work and they brightened up my shop but I don't think I'd buy more just due to poor quality. March 22, 2016
