//The Ultimate 2G11 LED Retrofit Guide For All CFL Wattages

2G11 lamps are a funky sector of the lighting industry, originally manufactured in compact fluorescent lamp format to use in applications such as ceiling fixtures in offices, retail, and hospitality. Millions of these 4-pin, thin, and long tubes were installed by lots of manufacturers with all kinds of wattages, Kelvin temperatures, and lengths. Back then they were energy efficient, but now since LED is far superior, these old CFL use twice the amount of energy compared with LED, and it’s time to swap them out.

3bl LED carries a full line of hard-wired (bypasses the old CFL ballast – more reliable) 2G11 LED lamps to match up to any of the old CFL brightness levels and Kelvin temperatures, so you can save 50% or more energy without modifying or replacing the fixture itself. Below you can find our complete guide, organized by the existing CFL wattage you have, so you can match it up to the equivalent-brightness LED specifications.

There are some major benefits to LED 2G11’s that apply to all CFL retrofits:

  • Save 50% or more in electricity.
  • 5 year warranty on all new LED lamps.
  • It’s a little more work on the front end, but bypassing the old ballast and hardwiring the circuit right to the socket saves a huge amounts of future headaches, because not only do you save more energy this way, but you don’t have to worry about old CFL ballasts burning out all the time, in which case you would have to replace them anyway.
  • Over 100 lumens per watt – extremely efficient from a brightness standpoint.
  • No UV emissions.
  • 50,000+ rated operating hours.
  • Versatile 120-277V installation.
  • 80+ CRI, 90+ CRI option available for a very crisp and high light quality to make colors pop.
  • Quality checked, ETL Listed.
