- Do I want to run my new LED lamps on a ballast or on straight line voltage?

- What base type do I have on my existing CFL plug in lamp?
- Are my lamps operating in a vertical or horizontal postion?
The 2 types of technologies in the marketplace are:
PLUG AND PLAY This technology is the most popular. Using this technology you simply switch the the lamp, not the socket! The 2-pin or 4-pin lamp fits standard GX13, G24d or G24q-series 13W, 18W, 26W, 32W, or 42W CFL sockets and is powered by the existing fixture’s ballast. When you use the LED plug and play technology the ballast life will actually be extended! Lunera, MaxLite, Green Creative & PHILIPS all offer the plug and play technology. We offer these brands because they are trusted lighting manufacturers. So, now you can upgrade to LED by simply changing the lamp. No downtime, no hassle, no problem.
DIRECT WIRE The direct wire option is used when you want to "bypass" the ballast. By bypassing the ballast you are removing the ballast from the system and bringing the line voltage at the fixture directly into the socket base. The direct wire method involves completely rewiring and relabeling the fixture. To locate the direct wire options you will want to find the PL or PL-L lamps that are rated "120-277V"
