Third Generation T8 High Brightness LED Tubes

T8 LED tubes are popular products used for offices and stores, improving them day by day categorized by generations. Right now the third generation of T8 LED tubes has been developed with much better specifications and even higher performance than before. What are the differences between the three generaton T8 LED tubes and what did actually improve??

Below we have summarized the characteristics of each generation T8 LED tubes.

First Generation T8 LED tubes

  1. The tube is all around PC material, there is no heat radiation material;
  2. The tube is using normal 5mm LEDs;
  3. The cover is clear, and you can see the LEDs clearly;
  4. Driver below the PCB with LEDs, very hot;
  5. PF value around 0.50.

Second Generation T8 LED tubes

  1. The cover is PC material, the back is aluminum back which is better for heat radiation;
  2. The tube is using normal 5mm LEDs;
  3. The cover is clear, and you can see the LEDs clearly;
  4. Driver below the PCB with LEDs, very hot;
  5. PF value around 0.60

Third Generation T8 LED tubes

  1. The cover is frosted cover, you can not see the LEDs inside the tube;
  2. The tube is using super bright SMD LEDs for better heat radiation;
  3. Super strong end cap;
  4. Driver on both ends of the tube, better for heat radiation;
  5. PF value around 0.90.
