    Any problem in using a GFCI protected outlet for an outlet where a
    fluorescent light is to be plugged into it ?

    Was wondering it would be likely to trip due to the ballast, turn-on
    characteristics, etc. ?

  2. No, with modern GFCIs, it should be fine. They have some filtering and
    mostly only respond to any difference between the hot wire current and the
    neutral wire current.

    Not with a reasonably well designed ballast.
