    Rated 5 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect I have undercabinet fixtures in my kitchen which were installed 10 years ago when house was built. There is a mix of sizes and some were electronic ballasts while others were magnetic. The old-school magnetic ballasts still work fine, but the electronic ones were all going bad, causing the lights to flicker. Rewired them with these, which was much cheaper than new fixtures and they still all look the same. The ballasts are tiny, so easily fit in the space where the old ones were, there is a variety of mounting holes so should accomodate most any fixture layout, and they work great. Bulbs illuminate instantly, no flicker even on start-up. July 13, 2012
