LED CFL retrofit lamps are the perfect replacement solution for inefficient compact fluorescent lamps. They are more energy efficient and long lasting. These CFL retrofit lamps are available in plug-and-play, also referred to as ballast compatible or dependent, and direct wire, which means they operate off line voltage. LED CFL retrofit lamps are rated to provide up-to 50,000-hours of continuous operation, which is more than four timer the expected lifespan of traditional compact fluorescent lamps.
These plug-in LED retrofit lamps provide 50% energy savings and last up-to four times longer when compared to traditional CFL lamps. They are also flicker-free unlike CFLs, and handle temperature changes far better as well.
Plug-In CFL LED retrofit lamps are available in self-driven and ballast dependent versions. Self-driven means the lamp contains an internal driver, which allows you to remove the existing ballast and connect the line voltage directly to the sockets. Ballast dependent means the the lamps is operated by the fixture's existing ballast.
