Slash '5 Foot' T8 Tube Energy Usage by Over 60%
Long T8 fluorescent lamps consume 58 Watts of power with a further ~10 Watts lost in the ballast. As a result, total power consumption per lamp is actually around 68 Watts.
The Philips T8 LED tube, on the other hand, consumes just 22 Watts in total. That's an energy saving of 67%. Even though the ballast remains in circuit, it will not draw any real power.
This translates into an electricity cost saving of about $50 per year, for every tube upgraded. This example assumes 12 hours per day operation and an electricity tariff of $0.25/kWh.
Installation Guide - 150cm 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. See the wiring diagram in the specifications table below. Fittings without starters that come on instantly are generally electronic ballast.

Frequently Asked Questions
What other options and sizes are available?
We stock a wide range of other LED fluro tubes, including:
- 600mm LED Tube
- 1200mm LED Tube - most common size
Does your price include a replacement LED starter for each 1500mm tube?
Yes - remember to check the packaging for the LED starter. It's easy to miss if you 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 without further modification.
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.
