I am not sure what the description means when it says 48W Equivalent. There are no 48w T8s as far as I know. Does it mean 2 24 watt bulbs? that does not make sense either. These are only 20% more efficient than florescent bulbs (which are already very efficient). It appears to be a completely false statement.

Anyway, no deal for me... look at these numbers.

Comparison
A Philips 32-Watt bulb ($2 on sale)

Brightness: 2750 lumens
Estimated yearly energy cost: 3.85 (Based on three hours/day, 11c/kwh. costs depend on rates and use)
Life: 30,000 hours
Light Appearance: 6500k (daylight)
Energy used: 32 Watt
Lumens per watt: 85
CRI 82.0

A SGL 22-Watt bulb ($8 on sale at Amazon)

Brightness: 2310 lumens
Estimated yearly energy cost: $2.65 (Based on three hours/day, 11c/kwh. costs depend on rates and use)
Life: 36,000 hours
Light Appearance: 6500k (daylight)
Energy used: 22 Watt
Lumens per watt: 105
CRI 80-83

A few notes:
If you are replacing 32 watt bulbs, these will not be as bright as those were.
Your break even for energy costs is about 5 years if you use these 3 hours a day. Usually garages don't see more than around 1 hour so if might be 10-15 years. The odds are that something better will come along before that though and you will may replaces the lights again (or will move). I have not had good luck with SGL led bulbs. I have several in my bathroom vanities that have gone out after ~2 years. They are an off brand IMO. Certainly don't have the quality standards of Phillips bulbs.
Just not worth the price and hassle IMO. I get 2900 lumens from a 32w t8 bulb... which, when I test, draws only 25w. At a price of under $2.50 each. Every other bulb in my house is LED, except the t8's, of which I have 28 in operation. So, for me at least, these bulbs need to be a lot cheaper to make up the difference in price. Not to mention the lower lumens.

Before you buy LED refit tubes, check the tombstones on your light fixture. Some are designed so that the pins are at a 45-degree angle. For a fluorescent tube, this obviously doesn't matter. But for an LED tube, it means that the light might not be aimed optimally.

If you have this problem, you have two choices: you can replace your tombstones with 90-degree versions or buy LED refit tubes that are rotateable (less common but they do exist).

full refund after you cut up your ballast and ruin your current light? It's strange that it's sngle ended too but at least the reviews say the other end has dummy ends so it isn't that weird I suppose. But seems pretty cheap. reviews look good

i dont think it's meant that way... i assume it means if something happens to it performance wise... you can get refund or replacement...

Is this a troll or a sarcasm making fun of Costco trolls? nod

Costco is cheaper for one lamp (2 bulbs). The one here is a 6-pack. If someone already has lamps, why would they buy new ones anyway? Reuse, Recycle, Conserve...

I agree that you may never make up the savings in energy but the savings here for me come from not needing ballasts. I have an office where the lights are on 8-10 hours per day. The ballasts need to be replaced every 5 years or so at $35 each and there are 2 in each of my fixtures..So that is $70 / 5 years = $14/yr just in ballasts. The savings from that alone are worth the switch for me.

We installed some of the lower wattage ones in our machine shop room at work and they're definitely brighter than the old fluorescent, I personally think the fluorescent tubes have either a spoofed lumen rating either that or lots of light is lost in the fixture since it lights up 360 degrees.

This is a good deal, not to mention you don't have to replace the ballasts when they go dead or have to worry about tubes not lighting up when it's too cold outside.
I would assume these would last much longer than fluorescent tubes especially in a home where you constantly turn them on and off.

As for the keystones, you can purchase them for about a buck a piece last time I looked.

I think the biggest thing is getting people to change, it took me convincing my boss with paperwork showing how much he'd save and the fact they'll pay for themselves plus some over their life being on nearly 24hrs a day, I remember people crying about fluorescent bulbs when they first came out since they have a bit of mercury in them and now most people have some in their homes.

LED is going to be the standard, however if you don't use the lights 27x7 it will take some time to get your $ back.

Just bought these yesterday:

to go in these fixtures:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product...UTF8&psc=1

Word is the fixture/ballast is garbage, but who cares. I'm ripping all of it out. The new bulbs come with tombstones. So I'll have ~$65 in two new 4ft LED fixtures. Can't buy em for that.

I like the philips led bulbs retro fits at home depot. You need to make sure you have a electric ballast instead of a magnetic ballast (make a hum sound). We put these in our garage and upgraded to an electronic ballast. Our old t12 used the magnetic. These T8 led lights fit right in. No these posted are brighter, but not as efficient as the philips we bought. The best thing over the fluorescent lights is the instant full brightness despite the weather!

If you wanna be really slick, do some research on led strips (rolls). Can run multiple on a single power supply, you can ditch the "shop" fixtures and customize lighting, take significantly less space, choose between multiple color temperatures...all kinds of crazy lighting effects too if you want that. (5050 seems to be the bet bang for the buck atm.

Shop lights are found in basements and garages 99% of the time, obviously I don't suggest led strip lighting if you have these in your living areas, then you need to replace the fixture. Wink
