I need help. These are in my kitchen under counter lights but I can't find anymore info on them.
Any idea what I could get as a substitute for them?

you would be better off just replacing the light with something like this
They have like the two prongs each end.
If it breaks, well it wasn't working right anyway.
NB all such fluorescent tubes are being phased out later this year (Aug/Sep 23) so if you find some and have a number of under cupboard fittings buy some spare lamps for future use, perhaps.
Fluorescents are roughly as energy efficient as led in turning electric into light. But LED replacement luminaires may cost a lot more to buy. So change to LED won't save money.
The lamps rotate 90 degrees so the two pins each end align with the slot in the lampholder 'bottom edge' then pull out (gently). That rotation disconnects the electrical connections, too.
Refitting is a reversal of the process.
You Tube no doubt has videos showing how.
