Answer: 
Yes, but you need to make sure that you have an Instant Start T8 electronic ballast. I replaced T12 40W fluorescent fixtures in my shop with these, but I did also replace my old T12 ballasts with the more efficient ballasts that these tubes require.

Answer: 
T8 bulbs (32 watts) use a different fixture than the 40 watt (T12) bulbs. While I can't say whether these LED bulbs are as finicky as the standard T8s, I sure wouldn't want to try. The replacement fixtures that use the smaller (T8) bulbs are really cheap, and easy to install. BTW, these new LED bulbs are available in 2 or 3 different color temperatures online.

Answer: 
A qualified no. "Warm" refers to the color of the light output. "4000K" is very "Cool" or bluish tinted . "Warm" is more yellowish tinted. Caution: this bulb requires a certain type of ballast. I had to change mine out, which was not a problem, just additional work. All that being said, this bulb is fantastic and the cool 4000K light color would probably be superior in a shop setting.

Hey Ronnie,
If the shop light is a T12 size bulb, then these T8 LED replacements will not work...they need to be the same diameter for it to work properly.
At this time, all the Philips InstantFit bulbs are in T8 form.

They should be able to wire exactly how you wired your previous ones. My company does this all the time, we actually prefer to get rid of the ballasts all together even if they are the plug and play version like this one. Leaving the ballast is only another component that will require maintenance and add wattage to your fixture since the ballast do take up to sometimes 20W each additional to what your lamps are. So we just bypass the ballast all together. The point is to reduce the wattage so why keep the ballast if you dont need it.
So to answer your questions yes wire them straight to the tombstones like you have been and bypass the ballast all together. You dont need the ballast, LED come with their own drivers that do the same function as a ballast. Read Less

So am I to understand that the only benefit with upgrading to the LED lamps, in this application, is longevity of the lamp and brightness? There is no energy savings as you utilize the existing ballast.

Answer: 
No, actually there's significant energy savings. The "32-watt" is the equivalence. It produces as much light as a traditional 32-watt bulb, but only uses 14.5 watts, a 17.5 watt savings per bulb. LEDs are more directional, so instead of lighting upwards towards the ceiling, it only lights out and down. The result is the same amount of light in the room for far less energy.

The energy savings are quite significant. The electricity costs are about $8/year per bulb using for 12 hours a day (typical for an office situation) versus $18/year for a traditional bulb, or about a $10 savings per year. That pays for itself in about 15-24 months, for a TCO cost savings of about $100 for the life of the bulb. Read Less

Answer: 
No, the ballast does not come with the bulb. They are typically intended for existing applications where the ballast is already installed and thus require no additional work to use more efficient LED bulbs other than just replacing the bulbs.
If you are going to rewire the fixture for a new ballast, you might as well rewire it to not use a ballast at all, and then use less expensive, direct-wire LED Read More

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 16 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy way to switch to LED These bulbs are plug and play and can even be mixed with florescent bulbs in the same fixture. August 18, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great light quality I replaced several 40W fluorescent T12 fixtures with these LED T8s. I was concerned that the light output would not be enough, since the T8 LED is rated at 1600 lumens compared to the fluorescent T12s rated at 2600 lumens, but I was surprised to see that I was getting as much light as the 40W tubes I replaced. Also, the light quality is far superior with a much better white color than the green hue common to the fluorescents (see side-by-side comparison photo). I did go ahead and replace the old T12 ballasts as well to Instant Start T8 ballasts, since my old T12 ballasts would not have worked. February 1, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bright and cool High quality LED tubes. Easy to install and looks cool (cool white). December 15, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very pleased! Was a little skeptical as to if these would actually be bright and work without a hitch in a T8 fixture. I was very pleasantly surprised, they are bright, white and went in and worked as advertised, no problem. Will never settle fluorescent tubes again. August 21, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by At last, 4 ft T8 fluorescents, and a great price! It's great to see these bulbs finally available! They work as advertised, and replacing 32-watt bulbs with 14.5 watt bulbs is a major advance. For the always-on fixtures in a church where I installed these, I figure they should pay for themselves in less than two years, and last for several more. T8 bulbs have nominally ~2800 lumens, omnidirectional. These Philips bulbs are rated as 1600 lumens, but the light can be directed straight down. I couldn't see any difference in the light output of these versus the 32-watt T8s they were replacing. October 22, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Limited usage, decent value These are great bulbs in newer fixtures, to use in closets or small areas because they are lower wattage and increase your energy savings. The price is in the mid range for a bulb of this type and represents a good value. The drawback to these is that these bulbs only work in newer ballasts with T8 energy efficient bulbs. The light they produce is more than adequate. However I found universal bulbs at 17 watts that had the right amount of light and will work in any type of fluorescent fixtures. December 17, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LED upgrade The light bulbs were a very easy replacement bulb. no ballast removal or wiring needed. March 10, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by T8 LED Tubes These LED tubes are a great way to save energy and are very easy to install. December 21, 2014
