Out of the LED tube, 8ft can be considered as the brightest LED tube because of its ability to deliver a higher lumen output to serve larger applications and higher energy efficiency than what you get with the other sizes. While our 8ft LED tube is available in 48W, the 48W can deliver a significant amount of lumens 6720 lumens. Having a beam angle of more than 120 degrees, the 8ft LED tube has a 3-4 times longer lifespan than the fluorescent tubes, considering the longest lifespan of any fluorescent tube as 15,000 hours. This 8ft LED tube works without ballast and hence the ballast must be bypassed. With an excellent heat dissipation system, this 8ft LED tube is designed to work smoothly and for longer. The 48W 8ft LED tube can replace 170W of any 8ft fluorescent tube and bring about 75% of energy savings. As ETL listed product, the 8ft LED Tubes is high on safety. You have a completely risk-free 5 years of warranty from the manufacturer’s end when you make an 8ft LED tube as your lighting choice.
Features of T8 8ft LED Tube Light 48W 6720 Lumens, Single Pin:
This LED tube requires you to either remove the ballast or bypass it. We have prepared a step-by-step guide to help you bypass the ballast to successfully install your LED tube.
Whether it’s 2ft, 4ft or 8ft LED tube, one of the jaw-dropping features of LED tubes is that they don’t flicker unlike what you would have definitely observed in case of fluorescent tubes. The LED tubes start instantly and once they start, they don’t flicker and produce a humming sound.
The LED tubes that are either clear or frosted have an IP22 rating. This rating signifies that our LED tubes are protected against dust-tight (objects in the dust that are of a size more than 1mm) and protected against water-ingress from all directions. For such reasons, LED tubes are safe for use in areas where there are moisture and water. E.g. Bathrooms, kitchens etc.
The LED tubes accept an input voltage of 100V-277V. You can go for a waterproof transformer in case you don’t have this voltage and wish to convert this voltage range to some other.
The LED tubes will require low or no maintenance if you are going for a ballast bypass option of LED tube installation. Though not very frequent, but you may have to replace the ballasts once in the total lifetime of LED tubes, if you are going for ballast compatibility option and hence you will have to bear with slightly higher maintenance costs when choosing the former option.
The lifespan of LED tubes is no less than 50,000 hours or 5.7 years, if the tubes are operated upon for 24 hours a day. Can last longer, if the tubes are kept ON for only 12 hours a day.
The CRI being greater than 80 for LED tubes, whatever object comes in the light distribution range appears to be real and natural up to 80% extent on a CRI scale of 1-100 and as it would have appeared in the natural light.
The 120 degrees or ultra wide beam angle is made use of when large areas need to be covered. All our LED tubes whether clear or frosted have a 120-degree beam angle.
The LED tubes can save energy up to 75% in extreme contrast with fluorescent tubes that consume lot of energy to bring you a higher energy bill. We highly recommend going for our LED tubes that are an excellent combo of lumen brightness and energy-savings.
The LED tubes have a big heat sink made of aluminum and that’s a pretty good reason as to why the LED tubes don’t warm up too soon to be inconsistent operation. This is in extreme contrast with the fluorescent tubes that warmed up too soon and required cooling down to operate efficiently.
Embedded inside the LED tube is a high-quality standalone chip -- SMD LED -- made from many numbers of chips to ensure high performance and reliability.

How do you bypass the ballast
You cut the different wires that feed from it but if you're unsure, please refer to our instructions or your local electrician. The ballast removal can be done quickly and easily.
WHAT IS THE MAX HEIGHT SUGGESTED FOR THESE??
About 8 ft. to 10 ft.
What effect does cold have on them. 20 degrees and up to 90 in the summer.
They are tested to run between -68 To +122 °F. For any temperature beyond this limit the light may get damaged.
Will these work in place of T12's?
yes these will replace t12s also
Do the LED tubes need the ballast to be bypassed or can they be put into the fixture and turn it on?
you will need to bypass the ballast on these
