Do you have a replacement for a PL-S 7w lamp in a Led lamp
Thank you for reaching out to us via the website with regards to the PL-S replacement. We didn’t have a 7W replacement for a PL-S CFL lamp previously but now have 2 options available on the website in warm and cool white.

Hello, I have just bought two Osram 4.5W (9W) EM LED S Dulux S Warm White 2 Pin G23 Fluorescent tube replacements from you. Is it OK to leave the ballast (electronic I think) in place, or would it be better to remove it. I did the same swap in the same style fitting a while back and left the ballast in and it has worked OK for over a year.
Thank you for reaching out to us via the website. The beauty of these Osram CFL LED replacement bulbs is that you have 2 options available to install if you already have an EM (Electromagnetic) ballast. You could simply remove the old lamp and plug in the LED, and it will work fine. But now you can wire these directly to the mains and bypass the ballast. The benefit of the second method is that you can save a bit of energy as the ballast is no longer required. Secondly, the LED lamp will outlast the ballast so with the first method the ballast could fail before the lamp. Either way, you will be making huge energy savings by replacing your old CFL bulbs.
