1. What Are T8 LED Tube 5ft

Tubo LED T8 150 CM
Tubo LED T8 150 CM

 T8 LED Tube 5ft is a specific kind of T8 LED tube light used in all kinds of spaces, whether commercial, residential, or industrial.

Like the fluorescent tubes, they’re built to retrofit, T8 LED tubes 5ft are rectangular.

They also come with bi-pin edges that would be fitted into the lighting fixtures.

This part of the LED tube passes current to the light-emitting diodes and, in turn, makes it possible for your space to be illuminated.

T8, here, signifies that the lighting sources are 1′ in diameter.

2. In What Environments Can Tubo LED T8 150 CM Can Be Used?

Tubo LED T8 150 cm can be used in any kind of indoor environment.

You can also use them outdoors as well, depending on how strongly they’ve been built to withstand the outside world.

Whether it’s your office spaces, warehouse, religious spaces, schools, lecturers theatres, living rooms, etc, anywhere you can think of, the lighting sources can work there.

You might only just have to consider some other factors such as the CRI and lumen output to make the best option that’d appropriately illuminate your space and provide you and/or others with the needed lighting.

3. Can You Use A 5ft T8 LED Tube 5ft In Your Old Fluorescent Fixtures?

Old light fixtures
Old light fixtures

Absolutely, you can!

You need not worry about purchasing new fixtures for your space if your old fixtures are still in great shape.

T8 LED tubes 5ft, in the real sense, were created to replace old fluorescent lighting systems and provide improved lighting all around.

All you just have to do is carry out a retrofit and your new 5ft T8 LED tube 5ft will start work immediately.

We’ll be learning how to carry out a retrofit soon, so read on and learn more.

4. What Are The Differences Between T8 LED Tube 5ft And Other Tube Lights?

The major difference between T8 LED tube light 5ft and other tube light types are just the diameter of the tube lights.

While T8 LED tube 5ft lights are 1″ diameter round, T5 lights, are on the other hand, a lot smaller, about ⅝’ diameter wide.

T12, however, is a lot bigger. they’re 1½’, which means they’re ½’ wider in diameter than T8 LED Tube 5ft lighting sources, which are out of focus in this guide. Other differences include energy efficiency and pin socket type. The higher the diameter of a tube light the more energy consumed While T5 consumes energy, LED T8 5ft consumes a bit more, with T12 consuming a lot more than both. This also equals brighter intensity as well. T5 uses a G5 pin connector which is relatively smaller than what you’d find on T8 & T12 tubes. The 5ft T8 LED tube light and T12 lamps, on the other hand, make use of G13 bi-pins, also known as the single pin sockets.

5. Can You Use 5ft T8 Led Tube Light In A T12 Fixture?

Led T8 150 CM
Led T8 150 CM


Yes, you can.

This is because they have the same sockets and can easily fit into the same fixture as well.

You might just have to do a retrofit or replace the ballast in the T12 fixtures with a LED-compatible alternative for the 5ft T8 LED Tube lights to function appropriately.

6. Why Should You Choose Tubo Led T8 150 CM Over Other Fluorescent T8 Tubes?

There are some reasons Tubo LED T8 150 cm light is a way better alternative to fluorescent T8 tubes:

Among these are the following:

  • Energy efficiency

Popular among all the reasons you should go for tubo LED T8 150 cm lights is the fact that these tubes are energy efficient.

They consume less energy while emitting bright lighting with extended coverage.

  • Ease of Use

T8 LED tubes 5ft are easier to use than all the other types of lighting tubes.

They come with advanced control features (which we will discuss later on) that make it a lot easier for the user to use the lighting without having to stress themselves.

  • Improved Lighting

With T8 LED tube 5ft also comes better lighting.

Unlike fluorescent tubes, T8 LED tube 5ft lights offer wider beams which makes it possible for them to cover more areas than a regular fluorescent light.

  • Simple Installation

T8 LED tubes 5ft are very easy to install.

All you just have to do is insert the bulb into your lighting fixtures and make sure they’re tightly secure.

Except you’re going to be using your old lighting fixtures, you needn’t even worry about carrying out a retrofit.

  • Longevity

T8 LED tube 5ft is sturdier than all other tube lights which means they last longer.

They can be used for years on end.

7. Are LED T8 5ft Dimmable?

Yes, T8 LED tubes 5ft are dimmable.

Dimmability in LED T8 5ft is usually between the value of 0, which means the light is off (i.e no brightness), and 10, which is the highest brightness the tube light can offer.

Not all 5ft T8 LED lights are however dimmable.

To know if what you’re buying is, you need to check the dimmability specifications of the lamp.

Using a non-dimmable LED in a dimmer-enabled fixture and vice versa can cause your tube light to flicker.

In the worst-case scenario, it can completely damage the lighting sources.

So, you have to be sure your T8 LED tube 5ft is dimmable before purchasing them.

8. Are 5ft T8 led Fit For Outdoor Use?

Yes. But, not all.

5ft T8 LED lights designed for outdoor use usually come with higher IP ratings.

What this high IP rating means is that they have been particularly engineered for use in the harshest conditions.

Than lighting sources with lower IP ratings, T8 LED tube 5ft with ratings above IP65 are waterproof, moisture-resistant, shatterproof, shockproof, etc.

And, these make them fit for external use.

9. Are Tubo LED T8 150 Cm Enclosure-rated?

T8 LED tube 5ft in an enclosure
T8 LED tube 5ft in an enclosure

Yes, you’ll find enclosure-rated Tubo LED T8 150 cm lights in the market.

To know if the T8 LED tube 5ft you’re buying is enclosure-rated, check the lamp’s specifications and confirm the value.

“Yes” signifies your lamp can be used in a covering while “no,” tells you it can’t.

Using lamps with the “no” value in an enclosure could damage them as a result of overheating.

So, avoid it if you don’t want to keep replacing your bulbs every other day.

10. What Is The Power Consumption Of A T8 LED Tube 5ft?



When compared to CFL bulbs, which are more energy-efficient than the other conventional lights, LED T8 1500mm are champions.

batten fixture
batten fixture

T8 LED tube 1500mm consumes about 50%–60% less energy than CFLs.

A 25watt LED bulb, for example, would do about the same job, if not, even more, as a 54 watt CFL bulb.

11. What Lighting Controls Are Available In LED T8

  1. Dimmer Control

This control feature gives you flexibility over your lighting sources.

You can easily increase and decrease the brightness of your T8 LED tube 5ft whenever you feel the need to.

For example, there are certain periods you might not need too much intensity for the activity you’re performing under your light.

A minimum amount of intensity might be all you need to get the job done.

With this feature, you can just tone down the brightness your lighting sources emit and continue to work.

Dimmability value falls between 0v–10v

Note: this feature is only usable when your lighting fixtures come with dimmable drivers.

If they do not and you try to dim your lighting sources, your bulb will either flicker or damage completely and you’d be forced to carry out unnecessary and expensive repairs to bring it back to order.

  1. DALI (Digital Addressable Lighting Interface)

Have you ever thought of how tiring it is to be pushing switch buttons of the whole lighting system in your building one after the other?

  1. Wireless

this wireless control even gives you more control.

It allows you to connect your lighting sources and control them from connected devices, whether your mobile phone or any other connectable gadget you have in your environment.

  1. Motion Sensor

This control feature works exactly like a siren.

Imagine the light in your space coming on, on its own, anytime it detects any unwanted movements between its coverage area?

Seems unimaginable, right?

Well, that’s what a motion sensor does. It provides security over an area and keeps intruders far away from your space.

  1. Occupancy Sensor

This control feature in T8 LED tube 5ft is exactly like the previous one we just discussed.

But, unlike it, it’s not particularly used for security purposes.

The occupancy sensor is instead used in areas where there’s limited activity, like your restrooms, corridors, and other rarely used spaces in your building.

What makes this control feature particularly great is the fact that it allows for reduced electricity consumption.

Instead of wasted lighting, and energy, you get to save and use light just when you need it in areas you rarely need them.

12. Are T8 1500mm LEDs Suitable For Growing Plants?

T8 LED Tube 1500mm
T8 LED Tube 1500mm


Well, not exactly.

And this is why…

Not all T8 LED tubes 5ft can be used as grow lights.

What your plants need to grow, if you’re growing indoors, are sunlight replicas.

According to GrowLightInfo, what you need for plant cultivation is a bulb that produces just the exact spectrum plants generally rely on to grow—a combination of blue, red, as well as other wavelengths that plants particularly enjoy.

So, when buying lighting for your plants, you have to be able to tell the differences between regular T8 1500mm LEDs and those specifically engineered to be used as grow lights.

It’s best to go for 5ft T8 LED tube lights with higher intensity and a color kelvin between 5,500k–6500k just to ensure your plants get the appropriate lighting they need to thrive properly.

13. What Does It Mean When My T8 LED Tube 1500mm Is Flickering?

5 foot LED T8 replace
5 foot LED T8 replace


 When your T8 LED tube 1500mm begins to flicker, it could only mean 3 things:

  1. Your T8 LED tube 5ft lights and fixtures are not compatible.

This is why it’s highly important to always confirm the specifications of your fixtures and/or lighting sources before finally deciding to purchase one.

This incompatibility could be due to some factors.

These include the following:

  • You’re using a non-dimmable 5ft T8 LED Tube Light in a dimmer-enabled fixture, or vice versa, and have tried to dim the light produced by the lamp.
  • To know how you can determine dimmability in your 5 foot LED T8 replacement, check question 7 above.
  • The voltage of your T8 1500mm LED and fixtures do not match.

This could cause irregular lighting and, ultimately, the quick damage of your T8 LED tube 5ft if you leave this problem unattended.

  1. You have a wrong wiring connection from your lighting sources to your power source.

This, to ensure a proper job is done, would require the presence of a professional technician to get the job done.

  1. And, lastly, your light-emitting diodes are running out of time and trying to tell you they’d not take long again before they finally break down.

This would require you to disassemble your light sourcing and replace the LEDs with a newer variant.

14. How Do I Install A 5ft T8 LED Tube 5ft?

A T8 5ft bulb
A T8 5ft bulb

T8 LED tubes 5ft are about one of the easiest tube lights you can install.

You don’t need to do much.

Just fit the bulb into the socket on your fixture. And that’s all!

Easy peasy like ABC. The extra job is to check and confirm if the T8 LED tube 5ft is securely fitted into your sockets so the lamp doesn’t fall off from the socket.

Installation process:

  • Turn of your power supply;
  • Also make sure your circuit breaker is also off;
  • If you’re retrofitting refer to question to question 17 below on how to go about this;
  • Once you’ve retrofitted, or maybe you didn’t have to, fit your T8 LED tubes 5ft into your T8 fixture sockets and make sure they key;
  • Turn your power supply and breaker back on to test if you’ve done a fantastic job which we’re certain you’d do.

Note: Don’t forget to refer to your product user manual for details before carrying out an installation or retrofit.

15. How Many Lumens Do You Need In A 5 Foot Led T8 Replacement?

a fitted LED T8 5ft light
a fitted LED T8 5ft light


This is a question you can only answer depending on the type of 5 foot LED T8 replacement you want in your space.

Most importantly, you want to consider the kind of activities done in the space.

Whether it’s an industrial, commercial or residential building, you need to know what your client does in specific spaces of the building to know the amount of lumens that would be appropriate for the area.

Other factors to consider include the following:

  • Height of your space
  • Width of your space
  • Space design is also important as well
  • In certain scenarios, you might also want to consider the amount of daylight you get in the space to determine the amount of lumens that’d be okay as well.

A general rule most people consider when choosing the lumens output you need in a space is to multiply the overall space size in square foot with the foot-candle ranges of your space.

Say your space is about 80sqft and your foot-candle range at about 50–60, the amount of lumens needed would be 80 x 50/60, which is equal to 4000/4800lms.

16. How Can You Determine The Appropriate T8 LED Tube 5ft Color Temperature For Your Space?

Color temperature is another factor to look into when purchasing your T8 LED Tube 5ft.

To the appropriate kelvin color for your space, below are some considerations to make;

  • Just as we pointed out in the previous question, you’d have to look at the activities that would be done in the area. Would you require warm white, cool white, or daylight to perform certain tasks?
  • You also want to look at the kind of setting you have in your space to determine the amount of kelvin you’d need in the space.

17. How To Carry Out A Retrofit For Your T8 LED Tube 5ft

All you have to do to retrofit your T8 LED tube 5ft is:

  1. Find out the specifications of your old lighting fixtures to determine;
  2. Get yourself your 5 foot LED T8 replacements;
  3. Disassemble your old lighting fixtures;
  4. Replace with an LED compatible variant, or remove the ballast if you have to;
  5. If you are not replacing the ballast, then you’d have to connect the wires in your fixtures directly to your power source.

Make sure it’s neutral to neutral and live to live to avoid technical breakdown

  1. Reassemble and fit your lamp to tense.

18. How Much Does A Regular T8 LED Tube 5ft Cost?

A regular T8 LED tube 5ft light should cost you between $6–$20 depending on the specifications for the LED T8 1500mm tube light you’re buying.

19. How Can I Ship My 5ft T8 LED to My Destination?

This would be easy for you if you carefully read through the answer here.

First, you need to confirm from your manufacturer, the customs office and your destination, and that of your manufacturer what the requirements are for shipping (we’d get into this more in the next question)

After securing all the necessary documents and ensuring that your manufacturer out every thing in order before sending, you’d need to decide on the most suitable shipping channel to use.

You could either use air or sea freight or you could just use a shipment company to make things a lot easier for you.

Some suppliers even go as far as to deliver your goods to your final destination to facilitate the construction process so you might want to discuss with your manufacturer or supplier the options you have before your goods are sent.

20. What Should I Consider Before Shipping My T8 LED Tube 5ft?

There are a few questions you should ask yourself before shipping your T8 LED tube 5ft lights to your destination:

  1. Are my T8 LED tube 5ft lights of high quality?

To find answers to these questions, you’d need to make official visits to your manufacturer’s factory, wherever that may be, to inspect their goods as well as their manufacturing processes.

  1. Do I have the required documents for shipping this product?

Before you can import or export any goods, you’d need to get a few certifications or documentation ready to justify your importation or exportation of the goods.

  1. Is the T8 LED tube 5ft lights I’m importing allowed in my country?

You’d also want to confirm that the product used in manufacturing the products you’re buying are allowed in your country.

Detemine this, you can check for the quality markings on the product like CE, RoHS, and so many other region-specific markings to know if the importation would be allowed in your country.


T8 LED tube 5ft may be one of the commonest lighting sources you’d find today in the market.
