18W T8 4ft Glass Tube - 50 Watt Replacement - 6500K - 1800 Lumens - G13 Clear Fluorescent T8 LED Bulbs - 50000 Life Hours - 3 Years Warranty

The 4ft. LED tube glass of 18W available in 6500K color temperature and having a CRI of >80  can deliver lumens up to 1800. It is an excellent substitute for T8, T10 & T12 fluorescent tubes. This 18W can safely and easily replace fluorescent tube of 50W and bring an energy-savings of 32W. Thus, a lower utility bill for you every month. This 18W is single ended, will work without a ballast, hence the existing ballast must be bypassed and directly wired to the line source for the tube fixture to work. These 18W LED tubes are housed in rugged die-cast aluminium for an efficient heat dissipation. For the standard ceiling height, these LED tubes having a beam angle of >220 degree emit enough bright light, have a long lifespan and have a shatterproof coating unlike the fluorescent tubes that were of inferior light quality, typically low lifespan and usually with no shatterproofing. One of the best things about LED Tubes from BUILDMyplace is they are UL listed.

  • Instant Start: In extreme contrast with fluorescent tubes,  the 4ft. 18W LED tube glass operates without any flickering or buzzing when it starts. 
  • 6500K Color Temperature: Looking for a 'çool white light'' color glow with a slightly bluish hue, insist on this tube. 
  • Better Thermal Management Than The Conventional fluorescent Tubes: The LED tube unlike the fluorescent tube does not warm up so often and hence does not require cooling down. In places where you need consistent lighting throughout the day and night, fluorescent tubes will not work and LED tube then is the best choice. 
  • Easy To Install, Easy To Operate & Maintain: Briefly enough, since the 4ft. 18W LED tube is single ended for a power source, you need to unscrew the ballast after cutting off the hot and neutral wires and the socket lead wires. Once the ballast is unscrewed and removed, you need to connect the input wires (those that are coming from the building) to the output wires and make a direct connection. You can either undertake self-installation or if facing a difficulty, consult an electrician.
  • Once your installation is complete, the operation & maintenance is fairly simple and easy. You can have hassle-free lighting for as long as the tube lasts.  
  • Use Non Shunted tomb stones  With This Tube

Ballast Bypass

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.

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. 

Voltage Input

The LED tubes accepts 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.  

CRI >80

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. 

220 Degree Beam Angle

 All our LED tubes which come in glass have a 220 degree beam angle. This beam angle is used for very huge spaces and wider areas.  

Designed specially for applications where need a wide lighting area.L06G-V long lifetime and low lumen depreciation reducing the maintenance costs due to L06G-V slim aluminum form ,optical and driver integrated.

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

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.   

LED Chip

Embedded inside the LED tube is a high quality standalone chip -- SMD LED -- made from many number of chips to ensure high performance and reliability.

Questions & Answers

Ask a Question
  • Can I buy these lamps individually ? Why does it say I have to buy 30 of them at a time?

    Due to fragile nature of the product, it's not logistically feasible to ship only 1 product.

  • If I remove the BALLAST how wire it for 110 W? Black wire and White wire?

    I can't answer this question as it could pose a safety hazard to you if you're unsure of installation. I recommend hiring a licensed electrician to handle the bypass.

  • Will they operate at 277volt

    They will, and tat is our highest voltage allowed for operation with these tubes. 

  • Do you have available, a simple plug in end with approximately 12"lead that I can wire nut to? Thanks Tracy Balsley

    Yes, we have pigtails that are about 13inches. 

  • What kind of warranty do you offer on your LED lights (T8 4ft 18W LED Tube Glass 6500K Clear Single Ended power 1-Pack)?

    We offer a 5-year, hassle free warranty that covers shipping on us for any purchases made within 6 months, and  easy exchanges/refunds at your convenience. 

  • What are the voltage requirements / limits. We have 110V fixtures and 220V fixtures. Can your bulbs (T8 4ft 18W LED Tube Glass 6500K Clear Single Ended power 1-Pack) be used in either one?

    They're rated for 100-277v. And yes they can!


    These tubes are glass! these also have 1,800 Lumens.

  • I tried to order this in a quantity of 30 at your stated price of $3.89 each and it said "Quantity must be a multiple of 30". So whats's wrong?

    It was probably a minor glitch. If you're still experiencing trouble, please call me at 502-309-9936 and I'll be glad to help.

  • Can these replace t12 bulb if ballast is bypassed ?

    They can!

  • What does the other end look like?

    It looks exactly the same as the end pictured.

  • Are their bulbs wired the same as the hyper lights

    Hyperikon? Yes, single-ended power is wired as hot and neutral to one end only. I believe we talked earlier. Hope I helped!

  • Do these work without a ballast

    They must be wired for a ballast-bypass to work. 

  • Do these lamps have a built in driver. Will they work if I have non shunted tombstones

    They do, and they only work with non-shunted tombstones because power is only getting wired on one end.

  • what is single ended ?

    Single-ended power means only one side of the tube gets wired, with hot and neutral, while the other end acts like a place-holder in the tube. These will require non-shunted tombstones. 

  • Are these full spectrum daylight bulbs?

    No, they're 120 degree beam angle lights, if that's what you're referring to.

  • what is a non shunted tombstone ?

    They are tombstones/sockets that the end of the tube gets the wire ran through, and non-shunted ones must be used for single-ended power tubes because they have 2 holes for currents to run through, since hot and neutral get wired on one side of the tube only.

  • Do you have single ended led 8 ft lg

    Unfortunately, we do not have single-ended in 8ft bulbs. We do have Singe pin 8ft tubes which are ballast bypass, hot on one, and neutral on another end.
