Both types offer energy-efficient light. Compact fluorescent lamps have an integral ballast that is built into the light bulb, whereas most fluorescent tubes require a separate ballast independent of the bulb. Both types offer energy-efficient light. They just come in all shapes and sizes.. I wish they made one in the shape of the star-ship Enterprise! There is a serious creative opportunity for you CFL designers out there!
