With a beam angle of more than 220°, T8 4ft LED glass tubes are good for lighting large areas with a total brightness of 1710 lumens. An 18 watt of glass tube can replace 50 watts of metal halide. These lights do not release any heat due to great heat sinking made out of aluminum. If one goes for the ballast bypass option of LED installation, even more money can be saved in maintenance costs along with 70% savings on the electricity bills. These lights replace 50 watts of metal halide which means it is even 200% more energy-efficient than metal halides
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 accept an input voltage of 120V-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, 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 is 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 220 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 220-degree beam angle.
The LED tubes can save energy up to 75% in extreme contrast with fluorescent tubes that consume a 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 any number of chips to ensure high performance and reliability.

Do they come with toombstones?
No, it doesn't comes with Non Shunted tombstones. It's an accessory you can purchase separately. The part number for the non-shunted tombstones is FX013
Would they work for starting garden plants?
No, they are not grow lights.
Do I have to convert/rewire my old fluorescent fixtures before using these?
Yes you have to bypass the ballast and convert them from dual ended to single ended power
