These are available in two styles. Direct replacement and ballast
Direct replacement are just installed like a fluorescent tube.
Remove the one, install the other. Typically only work with
electronic ballasts and NOT with old-style magnetic ballasts.
Ballast bypass require rewiring the fixture, and some T8 fixtures
use tube sockets incompatible with the LED tubes. A fixture
designed for T12 is fine.
Personally, I have no problem with rewiring to eliminate the
ballast. And getting rid of the ballast is, in my reasoning, a
Good Thing (TM).
Just be sure you are getting what you expect.
