Okay since my current led tubes do use a ballast, would I be able to convert the plugs from t8 to t5 without and adverse effects?


Your LED tubes are NOT using a ballast. They are merely fed through an existing ballast from when the fitting had fluorescent tubes. The ballast sits there doing nothing (other than wasting a bit of energy).
I see... So how would I wire directly to a plug without a ballast?

Now that depends on the tubes.

I just need a bit more info. Did the first lot of LED tubes come with a replacement starter switch?
No I believe the unit I have it connected to is a magnetic ballast? As there is no starter on the outter casing

Magnetic ballasts need starters, and the link you gave (although somewhat snipped) seems to suggest that it is switching two tubes from one ballast.

Maybe more details of the tubes you want to fit would be more relevant (especially as the ballasts are not needed).
