Well PJ, this is a loaded question. What it sounds like you are discussing is the old pull switch ceramic base that attaches to a junction box and then we screw in the good old incandescent bulb. The issue would be the switching here. If there is a switch at another location yes this could work. If the only convenience switching is the fixture itself then this would not be your best choice. There are new products like this being introduced all the time. In the meanwhile you might consider going to your local Home Depot store and substitute a high efficiency LED light bulb in place of the good old energy sucking incandescent. That would be a good start and in time as the trend continues towards LED lighting there is a very good chance that a pull chain version may be under the corporate magnifying glass somewhere.

The Versi Lite requires an external switch (typically a wall switch) to interrupt power going to the Versi Lite. There is no provision for an on-board or pull switch. It makes a great closet light though.

If you have a "box" then yes.
This mount to a wiring box, with two screws.
It really depends on your wiring.
The other consideration is, you dont have a switch for the light you have now, so once you remove the "pull", you wont be able to turn it off without installing a switch.

The Versi Lite is not a sealed waterproof unit but does not have large holes through the mounting plate so insects could get in. If it is mounted tight to a ceiling so the top is not accessible, few insects could get into the lens. If the climate stays above freezing, these lamps would be very good in a walkway.

I think so as the product label recommends usage on a moist or humid environment. I have installed it in my bathroom. The fixture has two seals. The diodes themselves are sealed inside a "glass" and no need for removal for installation and then there is a diffuser that twists on an off for fixture installation. Both seems to be well sealed, so it is safe to say okay for such outdoors application.

The Versi Lite is a whiter lite than an incandescent or fluorescent but does provide real color feedback. They would be great for a walk-in closet and wouldn't break the bank if accidentally left on. They're safer also since they generate only a small amount of heat.

We one of these in a laundry room about the same size and it is just right. The color of the light is not like incandescent, but I find it far more pleasing than any florescent.

Be careful with the mounting holes on this fixture. It doesn't fit a standard box. I modified the fixture tabs to fit my existing box. The fixture isn't very heavy and doesn't need much. The glass/plastic diffuser weighs more than the fixture. No bulb in it, it's really just LEDs mounted on a silicon board.

The Versi Lite puts out a somewhat focused beam as compared to fluorescent tubes which light a large area. The Versi would be great over a table or as counter lights but would require multiple units for a normal kitchen. I put three in the ceiling of a 14' long room to provide adequate illumination.

You will have about half of the light with this product compared to your dual tube application.
So if light is important, look for a 25-50W LED fixture.
If you are OK with less light from the ceiling, the flush mount Lithonia Lighting Versi Light is a great product and you will get about the equivalent of a 60W bulb.
The light is also real white on the units I just installed, so if you need a more natural light, check the specifications for light temperature.
There are new models coming...

This unit replaces a 60 watt incandescent fixture. It is not recessed and would need to be mounted to a light/junction box mounted flush to your kitchens ceiling to be legal and safe. For a 10 X 10 Kitchen 4 lights would probably be sufficient. These units send a very bright white light that is in fact brighter than many 60 watt incandescent bulbs. This may be from the LEDs being more directional than standard bulbs. 10Ws is a very small drawn and 4 of them hooked up to a single dimmer switch would work fine

Yes, it is the equivalent of about a 60 watt incandescent bulb taking into consideration the slight tendency towards directionality. The number needed in a 10x10 Kitchen would depend on a number of things. The colors of the walls and flooring or cabinets and countertops would all have an impact on the efficiency of the fixture. It would also depend on how you wanted to light. If you wanted daylight in a relatively light colored kitchen probably 6 fixtures, if you want task lighting maybe as few as three if they were placed very carefully.

If the pair of 60W Fluoride tubes are the same or anything like the typical florescent tubes, I would expect that you would simply remove the original light unit and replace it with the 4000K LED mini flush mount. Assuming that your Fluoride lights are the same as florescent lights, you would have two screws (one at each end of the light) holding the receptacle to the wall with electrical wires from the wall entering the light fixture in or near the the middle of the fixture. If the original light fixture was mounted to an electrical box, you should be able to screw the Versi-lite directly to the electrical box. Then re-connect the wires...black to black, white to white, and ground wires to ground wires. Again, I am assuming you have some experience with working with house electrics. Go to http://www.homedepot.com/catalog/pdfImages/32/324a6cd0-7f48-4326-8b53-00a7aa2111e9.pdf for a step by step installation guide and drawings to illustrate how to attach..

Hi, it sounds like your home was built on the 60's or early 70's. This would mean you probably have fairly modern wiring.
In the eighty's, the rage was florescent fixtures. The old light fixtures were removed and replaced probably at that time.
The hard part is going to be painting your ceilings once you get these removed.
The flush mount fixture will give you about the equivalent of 60-70W light, your dual tube application is brighter than that, so if you dont need all of that light, these are the answer.
You will reduce your power consumption from 120W or more to 12W.
I really like the power savings.
These are easy to install and can be used with a dimmer if needed.

No, just one. Fluorescent Tubes also radiate light from all sides of the lamp equally. Even the stuff mashed up against the top of the fixture is reflected back at you. This fixture has lamps that only point one direction off the board. It's basically a downlight. A plus is that LEDs do not have any flicker you can see and they are near instant, even faster than incandescent lights. A 60W Fluorescent is at least equal to a 100W incandescent (Unless it is old--they dim in time), a 12W LED is equal to a 60W or 75W incandescent.

Based on the Energy Star Certification requirements, the Versi Lite would certainly qualify, if it can meed the longevity requirement of 35,000 hours. I doubt this lamp has been submitted since that would require years of testing before it could be placed on the market. Quite frankly, this is a small, low end light that does a good job and will sell based on price instead of certification.

The manufacturer did not submit the produce to Energy Star for certification.
Energy Star is mostly to compare products like computers, dish washers, TV's etc. that tend to use a lot of power.
There really is no need for that since Model # FMML 7 840 is a 10W fixture...
You could install 10 of them and use the same W as one 100W bulb.

I expected about a 60W incandescent equivalent but it appears much brighter when looking at the fixture. I would hazard it is about a 75W equivalent but be warned, LEDs do not throw light the same way incandescent lights do. I can't put my finger on it, but they are a little different. Incandescent lamps literally burn, but are not consumed since they are in a vacuum or gas. LED lights are diodes that display very small electric arcs. To my eyes, that quality is different. To me this light is a downlight, it does not have a sophisticated lens just a piece of frosted plastic to diffuse the light, and the little lamps are mounted to a board which means they can only go one way. All that said, it is high quality and it is a good choice for task lighting, or a utility space. Ours is above a sink, which is perfect. It would be a terrible hallway or bedroom fixture.

I believe they are in the 650-750 lumen range. It says on the box. (which i don't have handy)

I put 5 in for a 10x180 side of my basement as task lighting and they are great.

To become UL Listed, a device must be submitted for approval. This is a fairly expensive process that may take up to a year. The fact that this light is not approved does not mean it is less safe. Other than the power connecting leads, all powered components are behind a plastic shield so there is little chance of a shock hazard once the light is mounted properly. The LEDs and other components produce little heat so there is not a heat hazard. However, the mounting leads are light, single strand wire with soft insulation that may be easily torn. Care must be taken during mounting that the leads are placed carefully where they will not be subjected to any stress.

I can't swear to it, but I don't see why not. It (dimming) would be in the switch/wiring, not the light itself.
