2ft LED Tube - 1040 Lumens - 8 Watt - 50W Equivalent - 5000 Kelvin - Clear - Single Pin - Fluorescent Light Bulbs Replacement - Flicker Free

The 2ft LED tube from BUILDMyplace is available in 8W with 5000K color temperature and can deliver 1040 lumens. This 2ft LED tube can easily replace 50W of any 2ft T8, T10 and T12 fluorescent tube, able to bring you 75% of energy-savings. This LED tube as the clear tube can work only with compatible ballast and so you need to check with us for a ballast compatibility list. The lifespan of this LED Tube is far longer (about 3-4 times) than the fluorescent tube and hence a preferred source of lighting in many applications. This 2ft LED tube has the external coating of a polycarbide for adequate durability. It has an internal heat-sink made of aluminum for excellent thermal management and hence easy to operate and maintain. Starts instantly and is fairly easy to install. As UL & DLC Premium rated product, this product also makes you eligible for rebates and 5 years of warranty period. 

  • Starts Instantly: No flickering or buzzing when turned on offering you a distinct advantage over any fluorescent tube.    
  • Optimum Color Temperature Option: A color temperature of 5000K means neutral white light - day white light glow, suitable for applications requiring both ambiance and productive atmosphere.
  • Effective Heat Dissipation System: This 2ft LED tube because of a big heat sink dissipates all the unwanted heat, thus not allowing for the tube to warm up too soon and then suddenly fail or take time to start up.    
  • Start Saving Energy Up To 75%: By installing these 2ft LED tubes, you save about 75% of energy every month and hence a reduced utility bill for you. 
  • No Strain On The Eyes: This 2ft LED tube with the latest LED technology does not cause any strain on the eyes as the lighting is free from any harmful radiation. 
  • Easy Installation & Operation: Take care of the ballast compatibility issue and you will find no hassle in installing our 2ft LED tube light.    
  • 30 Days return and Risk-Free Warranty: Avail a warranty period of 5 years from us. Return if the product you receive has any manufacturing defect.

Ballast Compatible

The T8 2ft LED Tube as clear tube being compatible with most fluorescent ballasts (electronic or magnetic), the installation has become much easier than ever before when you just need to swap your existing fluorescent tube with our 2ft LED tube. Without the ballast compatibility, it is not possible to achieve the specified lumen output and the specified life expectancy.  One of the benefits that you get by having a 2ft LED tubes from BUILDMyplace is -- by being ballast compatible, they can utilize the existing ballasts of the fluorescent tubes to provide us the desired light output when any re-wiring of the luminaire to the line source is not required.

Flicker Free

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. 

IP44 Rated

The LED tubes that are either clear or frosted have an IP44 rating. This rating signifies that our LED tubes are protected against dust-tight (objects in the dust that are of 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 is moisture and water.  E.g. Bathrooms, kitchens etc.

Voltage Input

The input voltage acceptable to our 2ft LED tube is 100-277V.

Low Maintenance Cost

You save money in two ways:

You save around 75% in energy by switching to our 2ft LED tube from your conventional fluorescent tubes.

Now, no more replacement needed for having consistent lighting at your premise for as long as the tube lasts. You not only get rid of the replacement costs but also the labor costs of installing or retrofitting your LED tubes.

>50,000 Life Hours

Our LED tubes are designed to last longer, about 4-5 times longer than any fluorescent tube (considering the lifespan of a fluorescent tube as 15,000 hours). Also, now you can have maintenance-free lighting for 50,000 hours if you operated the tube for 24 hours. But, this 2ft LED tube can last longer than even 50,000 hours if operated for a maximum of 12 hours.  

A longer lifespan also means lower emissions of carbon and thus better care of the environment.

CRI >80

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.

120 Degree Beam Angle

The 2ft LED tube has a beam angle of 120 degrees or higher. Hence, it can be used to illuminate larger areas leaving no dark spots behind and works great when installed in rooms with high ceilings.

Our 2ft LED tube having an ultrawide beam angle provides the user with a very clear and bright light hence if more than 1 tube is used, you can allow for more space between the two or more tubes.

Energy Saving

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

Our 2ft LED tube has been put to rigorous tests towards dissipation of heat and it has shown excellent thermal properties. The 2ft LED tube has a thick aluminum heat sink to dissipate heat effectively.  

LED Chip

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.   

Rebate Eligible

The LED tubes were one of the first LED lighting products to have become rebate eligible. All our LED tubes are DLC approved to make you eligible for rebate.

    BUILDMYPLACE T8 LED Tube Lights 2 Foot 8W; Ballast Compatible Clear Glass- 1040Lm; 5000K - Flicker Free Review

    Our company (Light Brigade) used these lamps to upgrade the existing 24" U - shaped fluorescent fixtures in an art gallery to LED. The results were everything the customer wanted - more light, better color perception, and lower electric bills.

    Questions & Answers

    Ask a Question

      these are compatible with most electronic ballasts hoever incase it's incompatible you always bypass the ballast . these tubes work with or without ballasts.

    • Is this bulb 120-277v?

      Yes, this bulb is 100-277V.

    • Have 10 fixtures. Can i replace 4 bulbs at a time, or one bulb at a time? Or do all bulbs need to be replaced at the same time?

      You can certainly replace 4 at a time.

    • what is the diameter

      These tubes are about 1inch in diameter.

    • Is this waterproof? I need led tub with wired connectors to replace my outdoor garage lights. I want to put some morrocan sconces around the tubes.

      They're suitable for damp locations but not entirely wet location constantly. so I would recommend having smething semi-covering them at the top or something similar.

    • Are they plastic

      They're aluminum and Poly-carbonate.

    • Says these are ballast compatible but will they work without the ballast.

      Certainly! Once the ballast is removed, these can be wired as double or single-ended power. 

    • Will these work to replace an existing F15T8 bulb that is driven by a magnetic ballast with a FS-2 starter?

      These tubes only work with certain ballasts and I've attached a Compatibility list below. If your ballast is not on the list, it'll need to be removed and then the tube can be wired as single or double-ended power.
