have a look at these new wago connectors:

http://www.wago.com/web/us/en/news/news/news_2003/series222_detail.htm

sounds great to me, they clamp 0,08mm² fine stranded up to 4mm², solid up to 2,5mm²


and you can easily remove the wires if used i.e. in a building installation without having to pull and turn.

It looks like they might be good for ballast change outs. We were using a connector similar to that made by 3M. You had to use your pliers to close the connector. They would save alot of time, if you had a large # of fixtures to do.
