Find the Ballasts You Require

Compact fluorescent ballasts can be put into 2 basic categories: electronic and magnetic. Magnetic ballasts were the first ballasts on the market, are generally categorized as heavy in nature, and they usually operate on 2-pin CFL lamps. Magnetic CFL ballasts are currently being phased out and are being replaced by their electronic counterparts. Electronic CFL ballasts usually operate 4-pin CFL lamps, and they’re usually universal voltage 120-277V.

CFLs, or compact fluorescent lights, need a ballast, just like any fluorescent lamp, and many other types of light bulbs. Some CFLs come with an integral ballast, but those that don’t need an external unit in order to regulate the voltage to the lamp. Without it, the light would not operate properly, would not light at all, its lifespan would be compromised, or some combination of these factors.

In other words, you need a CFL ballast to properly operate a CFL. The following collection of ballasts for CFL lamps contains electronic and magnetic ballasts for 4 pin and 2 pin lamps; if you have any questions, be sure to call us!
