The Highest Efficiency LED Fluro Tube

This Philips Master LED Tube is the most energy-efficient replacement for fluorescent tube lights.

  • Uses just 10.5W of power for a similar brightness to old 36W fluro tubes or regular 18W LED tubes.
  • Reduces energy consumption and lighting costs by over 70%.
  • Crisp and bright Daylight 6500K colour temperature.
  • Designed to operate for 50,000 hours.
  • No electrician is required in most cases - install it yourself (see the guide below).
  • The price includes a 1200mm LED tube and LED starter.

The Philips Master LED tube fits all standard T8 light fittings that are '4 foot' (~1.2m) in length. This item replaces regular 36W fluoro tubes with a 10.5W LED.

Reduce 4ft T8 Fluro Tube Energy Usage by 70%

Regular T8 fluorescent tubes consume 36 Watts of power, with a further ~9 Watts lost in the magnetic ballast. As a result, the total power consumption per lamp is actually around 45 Watts.

The Philips LED tube light, on the other hand, consumes just 10.5 Watts in total. That's an energy-saving of over 70%.

This translates into an electricity cost saving of about $37 per year for every tube upgraded. This example assumes 12 hours per day of operation and an electricity tariff of $0.25/kWh.

Installation Guide - 4 Foot (1200mm) LED Fluro Tube

There are two main types of fluorescent tube 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. Lights without starters that come on instantly are generally electronic ballast.

Safe & Secure Delivery of LED Tubes

You are welcome to order any number of LED tubes, but we generally recommend purchasing at least two to ensure reliable transportation. The Philips LED tubes come in cartons of 10 units, so round numbers of 10 are worth considering.

These LED tubes are much safer to handle than old fluorescent tubes. They are made from plastic rather than glass, making them more durable, and they contain no mercury.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are these LED tubes as bright as old fluorescent tubes?

Yes - although technically speaking LED tubes produce fewer lumens than a brand new T8 fluorescent tube. However, regular fluro tubes release their light in all directions (360˚). Much of this light is lost in the fitting and to unused parts of the room. Old fashioned fluorescent tubes also degrade over time and become very dim as they age.

On the other hand, these Philips Master LED tubes only direct their light output downward (190˚ beam angle), where it is actually needed. They still spread light throughout the room but without losing any light to the fixture or ceiling. This allows them to produce the same amount of useful light with less lumens. They also retain their lumen output more reliably over time.

For these reasons, many of our customers have found the LED tubes to be brighter than their old tubes, despite using 70% less energy. Have a read through some of our customer reviews at the bottom of this page for more details.

Does your price include an LED starter?

Yes - don't forget to check the packaging for the LED starter. It's easy to miss if you happen to open the box at the other end!

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

What other options are available?

We also sell several other sizes and options, including tubes with inbuilt motion sensors. See our complete range of LED Tubes.

Philips Master T8 LED Tube 10.5W

Converting from old fluorescent tubes with electronic balasts to LED in my workshop I was a little worried that the light would not be as pleasant or inferior in other ways. To maximise the chances of having a good outcome I chose these tubes for the conversion. After bridging out and removing the failing electronic ballasts and installing these in mains direct arrangement I am 100% satisfied with the outcome. Not only is there more light, but it is great in quality and easy on the eyes. Very happy with these fluoro replacements.
