LED tube lights are designed as replacements to common types of fluorescent tube lights, such as the T8 series. These tube lights are also designed so that they produce a light that is comparable to tube lights, though they are, in some people’s estimation, quite a bit more pleasant than the lighting that fluorescent tubes produce.
Tube lighting provided by LEDs comes in a much more durable package than that produced by traditional, glass tubes. These lights are far more expensive than tube lights, but they can provide significant decreases in energy consumption and can last for many years. They are rapidly becoming a popular alternative to the fluorescent lighting that oftentimes made workspaces very unpleasant for some people.
