Hera Lighting OLD blade-style SlimLite fluorescent under counter lights
If the ends of your SlimLites and connectors look like this picture, you have the
blade style SlimLites. Production on these stopped around 1999. Only the XL Pin connector style has been produced since then. We will offer some advice on this
page about integrating the XL pin style with your old blade style lights if you have the need to replace some lights. In many cases, it is sometimes easier to replace
power cords and connecting cables and just upgrade to the XL pin style lights. Only the 10", 13", and 20" T4 size SlimLites were made as blade style. All the T5
SlimLites were always made as the Pin Connector style. You will not find any of those sizes with these blade ends on them. These lights are quite commonly
referred to as DL07, DL10, & DL18. Those code numbers are referring to the wattage of the bulbs, not the length,
or length of the bulbs. The 7, 10, and 18 watt bulbs used in the old blade style lights are still the same bulbs used in the Pin connector style lights. We stock the replacement bulbs in abundance for quick shipments.
New as of July, 2014:
As shown in the two pictures directly above, the XL pin connector style SlimLites have two gold pins on one end and two round sockets on the
other. Distinct in and out ends for connecting them in series. The old blade style SlimLites have squared off kind of connecting ends, and both are identical. This is how you tell the lights apart. There are no adapters
or cables to bridge the old to the new. The lights are not interchangeable with each other.
(The below was our previous advice on how to adapt old to new lights. You can still do this, but do take note of the HER-BP/SDC info we added higher up on this page.)
