    I'm looking to replace an electronic ballast on a desk lamp. The lamp is a 28w T5 circline with a G10q cap. Mains is 230v.
    I'm just not sure how "picky" lamps are about the ballast they use. The closest I have found is
    Which doesn't seem quite right.

    I just seem to be getting conflicting information on which is the right way to go. So I thought I'd try here and see if someone really knew what they were talking about.
    Thanks for any help.

    What doesn't seem "right" about it?

    It's a universal replacement ballast.
