Yes I bought 10 of them.
These are hybrid tubes. Hybrid tubes can run off ballast or 120 to 277v power.
I found that the led T8 tubes use 26% more power when running on ballast power, compared to a mains power.
But even on ballast power the led uses 1/3 less power than regular T8 tubes.
But T8 tube versus led on mains power the leds use less than half the power of tubes.
My 6 tube fixture originally used 2.1 amps, with leds on mains power it dropped to 0.84 amps.
