It looks electrically compatible. If the connector is wrong, just cut the connector off the old one and install it on the new one.

I think i may do this, OEM unit lasted me less than 2 years and costs twice the price at $143. I just wanted to be assured this ballast will work.

It doesn't appear to be a ballast. LED's need a constant current DC driver, which is sometimes called a ballast by analogy to the ballast used for a gas discharge lamp which serves a similar function. This does not do the same thing. This appears to be a plain DC power supply. The "ballast" part (constant current driver) would be in the fixture that is powered by this DC power supply.
