Usually, the 8 ft tube is available in T8 size meaning that the size of the diameter of the tube is 1 inch.
These tubes can also be adequately used as LED Shop Light because of the high CRI that these light have.
The 8 ft. LED tube is available in two wattage options which are:
40 watt which replaces a 100-watt fluorescent tube

Advantages of using 8 ft. T8 LED tubes
Energy-Efficient: LED tubes convert more than 95% of the energy consumed into light thus wasting only 5% of the electricity as heat. This makes LED tubes highly energy efficient.
Now just energy-efficient, this also makes LED tubes eco-friendly because with every LED tube installed, the energy demanded from the grid decreases on account of increased efficiency. This, in turn, results in a reduction in the emission of greenhouse gases reducing the carbon footprint of the planet.
High CRI: LED tubes have a high color rendering index which is a measure of the light’s color rendering abilities. LED tubes usually have a CRI of more than 80. This means that the colors rendered by LED tubes are 80% accurate as compared to daylight.
Long-lasting: Unlike fluorescent tubes, LED tubes have a long life. Tested to last for more than 50.000 hours, you can be relaxed about the life of your tube for more than half a decade.
