16-pack Gx24q to E26 adapter, G24Q to E26/E27 GX24Q to E26, Lamp base converter, Rohs
15.5mm height at the tail.
GX24Q-E26 lamp holder converter, compatible with GX24Q-1, GX24Q-2, GX24Q-3
This lamp base converter don’t change any voltage or current. If there’s a ballast connected, dismantle ballast before install the LED light, Another way the ballast will make resonance high voltage which destroy the light.
Note: It’s 100% that PL-C downlight fixture has ballast inside. Even you are replacing with E26/E27 CFL, you wish to have get rid of the ballast also. Another way, the CFL E26/e27 Lamp won’t work on.
Every piece are tested before ship. No chance screw out or defective. 100% guarantee work if you understand how to install it! we will be able to not be responsible if the adapter or your lamp get burnt!
Please DO NOT BUY if you have no idea learn how to rewire or get rid of the Ballasts!!

1. The connections to the pin is a wire resting inside one of the most pins. It’s neither crimped nor soldered to the pin. Through the years this could lead to an open circuit.
E-Simpo Reply; Don’t Worry. The wire is fixed to the copper body by screw inside. Even time goes by, it’s going to not lead to open circuit. In any case,we do not plug and click it on a regular basis.
2. There are 4 pins, but these adapters only connect to 2 of them. In some cases the existing fixture uses the other 2 pins. In these cases, the adapters won’t work at all.
E-Simpo Reply: See the 7th Picture, for G24 GX24, the wire pin which is connect to electricity wire inside the socket is Northwest to Southeast, if ” In some cases the existing fixture uses the other 2 pins”, that may be not GX24q, G24Q, that may be GY24 which is never used at the present time. Please make sure your lamp socket is G24Q or GX24Q
Need BYPASS OR REMOVE the ballast, Another way, it doesn’t light on. G24q Series (Female Socket Fixture) to E26 (Male Bulb Base) Adapter – Q series has a shorter tip than D series and is more common in the United States.
Suit for GX24q-1/GX24q-2/GX24q-3 socket,Physically change the contact, don’t change voltage. If you do not know how to take away or don’t plan to ask an electrician to take away the ballast, please DO NOT BUY!
THE BALLAST IN YOUR FIXTURE MUST BE REMOVED OR BYPASSED FOR THESE ADAPTERS TO FUNCTION PROPERLY. CONSULT AN ELECTRICIAN IF YOU ARE UNSURE. DO NOT OPERATE A LED BULB WITH A BALLAST IN THE FIXTURE, DOING SO WILL LIKELY DAMAGE THE BULB.
All pin-based CFL, like GX24Q G24 GX23 G23 are lamp-ballast separated, but all screw-in E26 E27 are lamp-ballast integrated. ballast is a will have to to start a high voltage(600V-1500V 1ms) to remove darkness from the CFL, but It’s dangerous for LED Lamp. Because LED Lamp are built with LEDs and Driver which is transforming the 100-240V AC to DC for LEDs. So the LED Driver input must be 100V-240V or 85-265V, so 600-1500V will be too high, and easily destroy the led lamp.
There are some LED Driver who will also be compatible with the ballast, no LED Driver will also be compatible with the entire ballast. So the most productive thing is bypass or get rid of once we wish to change CFL to LED Lamp. When we get rid of pin-based CFL, we only got rid of the lamp, the ballast is still working in front fixture; even we change to E26/E27 CFL, there will be 2 ballasts, the light won’t work.
