8ft LED Tube R17D - 6720 Lumens - 48 Watt - 170W Equivalent - 6500 Kelvin - Clear
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 6720 lumens. Having a beam angle of more than 180 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 an ETL-listed product, the 8ft LED tube 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.

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 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.
Low Maintenance Cost
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.
>50,000 Life Hours
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.
180 Degree Beam Angle
The 180 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 180 -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.
Aluminium Heat Sink
The LED tubes have a big heat sink made of aluminium and that’s a pretty good reason as to why the LED tubes don’t warm up too soon to be in consistent 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.

Questions & AnswersAsk a Question
One of the listed feedback guys said he had to modify the holder of his HO bulbs to allow for the extra length of 5/16" on your LED tubes. Are the HO special? How do I tell if I will need to modify? I will be 18' high, access with rented bucket. Do not need a project with lights/power "off".
No, you'll simply bypass your ballast and then install these as double-ended power tubes.
How many amps is each tube double sided 8’
At 120V, it'd be .4A.
Are these bulbs UL Listed or ETL listed? If so where do you find the info before I purchase them?
It is UL Listed. Please refer to "Certifications" under the section Specifications on the product page.
is ballast required
This is a ballast bypass tube.
Can these lights be strung together in a row and how long can I go
This tube Light will be installed inside fixture, so can not connect together.
Is there any type of warranty on these lamps?
yes, these bulbs come with a 5 year warranty.
Are these now available with rotating ends?
Yes, these tubes are now available with rotating ends.
will these cause radio ( fm ) interference?
No, have never received such complaints.
