Customer Questions & Answers

Will these bulbs work in a shop light fixture that currently uses 40W warm white fluorescent bulbs?

Asked by: Ronnie
yes as long as the ballast is a instant start. I have them working with rapid start ballast also.

Can you bypass the ballast ?

I have replace 14 tubes in my basement last fall with LED tubes that don't use the ballast. The 120v are directly applied to each end of the tube. I would like to known if the philips instantfit led bulb can be wired the same way or only be use with electronic ballast?
Asked by: Marc
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.

Energy savings?

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.
Asked by: JohnI
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.

Do ballast come with bulbs? How many with box of 10? If not how do l get the ballast & cost?
Asked by: fred
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 bulbs. It wouldn't make sense to wire in a new ballast when wiring it not to use a ballast at all would be less expensive.

InstantFit 4 ft. T8 32-Watt Cool White (4000K) Linear LED Light Bulbs (10-Pack) is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really SWEET FINALLY, we have a good, affordable T8 Fluorescent bulb replacement. This T8 baby changes your Fluorescent 32 watts, 4100K, 2800 lumens, 21.9 years, to LED 14.5 watts, 4000K, 1600 lumens, 36.5 years (SWEET). For some reason the lumens (1600 vs. 2800) don’t tell the whole story; because the 1600 lumen LED is just as bright as the 2800 lumen Fluorescent (double SWEET). There is a catch though. There are two types of fluorescent electronic ballasts, “Rapid Start” and “Instant Start” (the rectangular thing inside your Fluorescent fixture). These InstantFix LED bulbs require the “Instant Start” ballasts and will not work with the “Rapid Start”. I found this out when I called Phillips to ask “What’s Wrong”. I had “Rapid Start” and had to replace them with “Instant Start”. The “Rapid Start” ballasts I had were also very low quality, so replacing them was a good idea anyway. Replacing them was simple; but the wiring is different; so just Google that. It’s also great not having to worry about breaking the glass Fluorescent bulbs because the InstantFix LED is plastic (triple SWEET). Thank you Phillips!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy install, works great, saves money Product worked as described. I replaced over 340 watts of bulbs with less than 120 watts. The lights are actually brighter than what I anticipated they would be!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LED upgrade The light bulbs were a very easy replacement bulb. no ballast removal or wiring needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Bright Color No rewiring required, great daylight color, nice and bright. However, the cost is almost $25 per bulb, ouch!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy way to switch to LED These bulbs are plug and play and can even be mixed with florescent bulbs in the same fixture.
