What are compact fluorescent retrofit kits and what is retrofitting?
Compact fluorescent retrofit kits are an assembly of fundamental working parts of a compact fluorescent light fixture. The retrofit kit is usually comprised of endcaps with leads and a ballast assembly with power plugs - in some retrofit kits a reflector is also included. It is essentially a light fixture without its housing. Retrofitting is the installation or the fitting of these components to an existing aquarium light fixture or canopy.
