I installed 100 dual-ended LED 4-foot replacements last year and noticed that my AMZN supplier (Sunco) has replaced the product with a single-ended version. Naturally, I do not want to rewire the 100 units a second time and would like to continue with the dual-ended LEDs to maintain consistency (KISS principle).
- Is there advantage to using a single-ended bulb?
- Is there cause to believe that single-ended bulbs will phase out dual-ended?
I ask these questions because if there is a significant advantage to single-ended designs, then maybe I should stock up on whatever dual-ended supplies exist if they are to become extinct.
If the winds are blowing in the direction of single-ended devices, then it may make sense to give up on consistency and replace existing fluorescent devices with single-ended LEDs.
