T5 LED Grow Light Electronic Ballast Replacement Instructions
Follow along and learn how to switch out an old T5 fixture ballast for a new one that works with our T5 HO Plug & Play LED Grow Lamps.
Upgrading to T5 LED grow lamps from T5 fluorescents offers numerous benefits for plant growth and cost savings. With a longer lifespan and dedicated horticultural spectrums, LED lamps are more energy efficient, emit less heat and are environmentally friendly.

It's ALIVE! Works for me!!! Lite it, don't fight it!!!!
Good buy. Great customer service. Work well. Easy installation.
All around Great upgrade! These make a world of difference. Cant believe how much better they are for growth. And 3times cooler then t5 bulbs.
Great customer service. Excellent product and excellent customer service. I called the shop in Seattle, WA to ask a few questions and they were very helpful and knowledgable. LED is the way to go!
Great lights for a hobby greenhouse. These lights work great. Still growing cool weather vegetables in January and supplementing heat with a small milkhouse heater.
Manufacturer goes above and beyond! I ordered these lights with fulfillment through Amazon. The tubes arrived broken. I contacted the manufacturer because I know what it's like to be dinged for shipping issues beyond your control. The manufacturer responded immediately, and offered to replace the grow light tubes at no charge. The lights arrived in perfect condition and were a great fit for our existing grow cart fixture. I couldn't be happier with the manufacturer response and the quality of the lights.
Worth it! I just started growing my own lettuce on Nov 4 2018. I did a bunch of research before buying lights, but still ended up with several types. I have a 2'x 8' space growing 36 plants. Half have been growing under normal T5 fluorescent lights, and the other half have been using the Active Grow T5 LED lights. The fixtures are the same. The only difference is the lights, and the plants can tell. The plants under the Active Grow LED lights are noticeably larger than those under the fluorescent light. I also find the color to be more vibrant. I liked the performance and cost savings of these bulbs so much, I bought a second set to replace the T5 Fluorescent lights I mentioned above. I just received them a couple of days ago, and they are up and running now. I love the power savings too! I can run two, 4?, 4 bulb, Active Grow T5 LED setups for less than the cost of one 4', 4 bulb T5 Fluorescent setup. I'm definitely producing lettuce cheaper than I can buy it in the store, and it's always clean, healthy, and picked fresh daily.
Grow better, less electricity, plug and play - what's not to like? Bought 4. Did some replacement of the older T5's. So, these ARE NOT more intense light supply. They ARE better match to spectrum, 40% of the electricity, and save on fixture cost. These kids be kicking it. These are GOOD STUFF! Think the home grow -T5 is for veg, hi output red range LED for flower. This is a great choice for veg - not sure one could get the intensity levels needed in a modern flower room (ppfd) or enough DLI for normal flower. BUT and I think a game changer - these could easily hit the DLI for an auto flower. So these bulbs in a few different lighting ranges could easily have one changing a few bulbs on their fixtures over the autos and providing awesome light level and quality. And keep your fixtures in place. Going to give it a try!
