These also scare me, because they look just like fluorescent
tubes, but will almost
certainly get fried if put into a fixture with a rapid-start
ballast. These drop in to
the FIXTURE and socket, but the ballast needs to be removed
Also, if somebody ever put a standard fluorescent into one
of these modified
fixtures, it might be messy.
