Bypass Ballast and Convert Fluorescent Light Fixture to Direct Wired LED Bulbs

Discover an easy method for converting your fluorescent fixture to direct wired LED bulbs. This LED retrofit project was accomplished using the direct wire, ballast bypass and removal method. I used the dual /double ended Hyperikon T8 LED bulbs. By removing the ballast from your old fluorescent fixture you are likely to save up to 70% on your electrical draw. These Hyperikon bulbs are made to last for up to 20 years. The have a 48 watt equivalence while using only 18 watts of power. They come with a five year, hassle free, unlimited warranty. I also use the Wago quick connects in this video. The Wago quick connectors are easy to use. They are much more convenient then standard wire nuts when connecting wires. For you convenience, I have provided links below for the items used in this video.

Here are links to materials used in this article:

** Hyperikon T8 T12 LED Bulbs

** Greenlee 1955-SS Pro Wire Stripper

** Wago 773 Wire Quick Connects

** DEWALT 20v Lithium Drill Driver
