Slash 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 25 Watts in total. That's an energy saving of 63%. Even though the ballast remains in circuit, it will not draw any real power.

This translates into an electricity cost saving of about $47 per year, for every tube upgraded. This example assumes 12 hours per day operation and an electricity tariff of $0.25/kWh.

Installation guide - 1.5m 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. See the wiring diagram in the specifications table below. 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 also stock LED panels for t-bar suspended ceilings, and LED batten lights for other applications.

Which is better: 6500K or 4000K?

4000K vs 6500K

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.

How does this item compare to other brands and models?
