Verbatim LED T8 tubes are a mercury-free, flicker-free and instant-on alternative for fluorescent tubes in T8 fixtures with conventional control gear. Available in three different colour temperatures, they provide high energy savings with a long lifetime of 30.000 hours. This makes Verbatim T8 LED Tubes particularly suitable for commercial applications like car parks, garages, offices, workshops and warehouses or any places that have long operation hours and replacement of lighting is difficult and expensive. Most importantly, it is safe and hassle-free to migrate from traditional fluorescent fixtures to Verbatim T8 LED Tube without any electrical re-wiring. A replacement starter is included with every tube.
Why should you upgrade to LED T8 Tube?
Regular T8 fluorescent tubes consume around 18 Watts of power with a further ~9 Watts lost in the magnetic ballast. As a result, total power consumption per tube is actually around 27 Watts. This Verbatim T8 LED tube, on the other hand, consumes just 9 Watts in total. That's an energy saving of up to 60%.
This translates into an electricity cost saving of about $30 per year, for every tube upgraded. This example assumes 12 hours per day operation and an electricity tariff of $0.25/kWh.

Every type of light bulb has a different average rated life. In general, incandescent bulbs have a shorter lifespan than CFLs, while LEDs will typically outlast both of them
Average rated life
In Australia, manufacturers are required to show this as the 'average rated life’, which is the industry standard rating system, and which shows the average number of hours that a given type of bulb produced light during testing. For halogens and CFLs this represents the amount of time until they stop working. For LEDs, this time is the point at which light output from the globe is 70% of its original rated value - this lifespan measurement is referred to as a light bulb's L70 rating
Color temperature is the color characteristic of light. Color temperature can change the feel or mood of any room or work space in any multifamily, commercial, or institutional setting. Purchasing light bulbs with the right color temperature can help you create consistent and inviting lighting effects in any room.
Modern Light Bulbs: Shapes And Sizes
These are the eight most common light bulb shapes you’ll find in your home:
- Arbitrary (A)
- Bulged Reflector (BR)
- Candle (C)
- Globe (G)
- Quartz Reflector Lamp (MR)
- Parabolic Aluminized Reflector (PAR)
- Blown Reflector (R)
It’s important to note that while these names are fairly common throughout the industry, there is no universal set of terms to describe the shape of a light bulb. For example, a compact fluorescent light bulb (CFL) will be described as a “twist” or “spiral” shaped bulb. Because of this, we recommend that you bring your old light bulb with you to the store so you can compare it with your new light bulb to ensure it’s the proper shape and size.
The following graphic should help to give you a better idea of what these bulb shapes look like:
In simple terms, Lumens (denoted by lm) are a measure of the total amount of visible light (to the human eye) from a lamp or light source. The higher the lumen rating the “brighter” the lamp will appear.
