Use the drop-down menu at the top of this page to choose between Cool White 4000K and Daylight 6500K.

Slash T8 Tube Energy Usage

Regular T8 fluorescent lamps consume 18 Watts of power with a further ~7 Watts lost in the ballast. As a result, total power consumption per lamp is actually around 25 Watts.

The Philips T8 LED tube, on the other hand, consumes just 8 Watts in total. That's an energy saving of 68%.

This translates into an electricity cost saving of about $18 per year, for every tube upgraded. This example assumes 12 hours per day operation and an electricity tariff of $0.25/kWh.

Installation guide - 2 Foot (600mm) LED Fluro Tube

There are two main types of fluorescent light fittings in existing buildings:

1) Magnetic ballast fittings - with starters. These are the most common fitting type. Simply replace the tube and starter (supplied) and you're done! Magnetic ballast fittings are identifiable by the fact they have starters present.

LED Tube Installation Guide

Easy installation for any fitting with a starter.

2) Electronic ballast fittings - no starters. Unlike the example shown above, these fittings do not have a starter. These units will require an electrician to 'wire out' the existing ballast. Fittings without starters that come on instantly are generally electronic ballast.

Price Includes Replacement LED Starter

Don't forget to check the packaging for the LED starter. It's easy to miss if you happen to open the package at the other end!

The LED starter is a safety fuse. It allows the LED tube to work in your existing light fittings, with no further modification.

Frequently Asked Questions

What other options and sizes are available?

We stock a wide range of LED tubes, including:

We also stock LED troffer lights for t-bar suspended ceilings and LED battens for other applications.

Which is better: 6500K or 4000K?

One colour temperature is not really "better" than the other. Generally 6500K is a "whiter" light and is perceived to be slightly brighter. If you want these LED tubes to look the same as the fluro tubes you are replacing, look for '840' or '865' on your existing tubes. '840' is 4000K and '865' is 6500K.

Good low-power replaceemnt in old luminaire

I had bought these before, they enable avoiding waste by re-using the existing luminaire. It takes only a few minutes to replace the fluorescent tube and works with no problems. At roughly half the power it provides as good lighting with less full. A good sustainment choice.

Excellent amd worthwhile upgrade

I changed over from a set of old fluoro tubes to these LED ones. I did a great deal of research and was able to remove the old ballast totally from the old lights (as they were rusted) because these LEDs don't need them. I went for the normal light colour and they are an exact replacement. Light output is great and they turn on instantly with no flickering. Really happy so far. Now to see how long they last!

Excellent replacement

After a bit of research, I purchased this item as a direct replacement for a failed fluorescent tube in a small laundry. Simply replaced the old starter with the supplied new one, insert this tube into the existing fitting and the job was done. Old fluorescent tube replaced by new LED light. Easy.
