Slash T8 tube energy usage by two-thirds
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.
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:
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.
