Many claims are beging made about the lastest LED tubes-not least for their efficiency.
Lux Magazine decided to subject Lita Lighting LED tube to their LUX benchtest. A few years back, the LED tube was the form factor everyone loved to hate. All the big lamp companies were briefing against them: they were inefficient, they had terrible light distributions, they didn’t last 10 minutes. They were also dangerous: some had terminals that would go live when the other end was inserted into a luminaire. Also, why did we need them when we had a perfectly good option: the good old T5? In short, the LED tube was an LED development too far.
