This product description says it is an electronic ballast for T12 lamps. The review however, says it worked well with "upgraded" lamps, indicating the possible use of T8 lamps. Is the ballast designed for T12 lamps or T8 lamps?

Thank you for your question.

This ballast does operate T12 96 watt 8 foot long fluorescent lamps. T12 means the lamps are 1.5” in diameter

I can't answer this question directly. But, why not look on the ballast mfgr. web site and look for a crossover recommendation for the existing ballasts in your shop?

I just purchased new ballast to replace bad ballasts on my 6ft light which uses two T12 F72 bulbs which are 6 ft length. Will this ballast work on this 6 ft light? Label on new ballast says 8 Ft. Does 8 Ft refer to maximum length, but will work on T12F72 6ft bulbs?

Hey Hman,

Yes, this ballast will work for a 6 ft. T12 fluorescent bulb.

It is rated for it, and states it on the packaging.

Dear Valued Home Depot Customer,
We reached out to the MFG for more information and find their response below.
“To use in a 1 lamp fixture, use a wire nut (e.g. an Ideal 74B Yellow Wire Nut) to cap off the end of the blue wire that is not being used. In other words, insulate one of the blue wires to 600Vrms. Install and ground per National Electric Code.”
