LED Tube Lights FAQs

What are the other benefits of EverLED LED Tube Lights?
Instant-on, no stroboscopic effect, less eye strain and headaches due to reduced glare.
Don’t some other LED tube lights require rewiring the fixture?
Yes, which should be done by a qualified electrician and takes considerable time, interrupting normal activity in the particular location.
Are LED tube lights as bright as my fluorescents?
Yes, you may even be able to use fewer tubes in your fixtures - and, they maintain their lumen output for years to come, use substantially less energy, extend the life of the ballast, and have a life expectancy of ten years*! *EverLED TR
Do I need to replace or rewire my fluorescent fixture in order to have the benefits of LED Technology?
No, as far back as 2004, design engineers at LEDdynamics began developing an advanced patent-pending driver technology to allow EverLED LED tube lights to be compatible with virtually all standard fluorescent ballasts.
I have seen many kinds of LED tube lights; what’s the difference?

As with most technologies, there is the good, the bad, and the ugly. It is easy to find LED Tube Lights which seem very affordable compared to others, however, you do get what you pay for. Most of the LED Tube Lights on the market today are being imported from Asia. These products use "no name" brand LEDs and the cheapest components and manufacturing processes possible. As a result they are prone to failure (up to 50%!), color shift, light loss, and a variety of other problems.

The EverLED TR series LED Tube Lights are manufactured to highest possible standards of quality, right here in the USA. Each and every component is designed to last, and only the most trusted, efficient, and proven brands of LEDs are used. Not a single EverLED TR series LED Tube Lights leaves the factory without undergoing rigorous quality control testing, and with a 5-year track record of commitment to our Zero Failures policy, it shows!

It is a classic example of "penny wise, pound foolish". If you have decided to invest in upgrading your facility to the latest in LED lighting technology, why would you risk total project failure in order to save a dollar? As our Chief Technology Officer Dr. William McGrath is fond of saying; "Do you want it cheap, or do you want it to work?"

Do you have to remove the ballast when installing the EverLED TR?

No. Unlike other LED replacements for linear fluorescent tubes, the EverLED TR LED Tube Light is the worlds first ballast compatible LED product. The EverLED-TR is designed to function with both T8 and T12 standard electronic and magnetic ballasts.  This unique feature makes the EverLED-TR a true "drop-in" solution and saves the considerable expense of hiring electricians to rewire the fixture and remove the existing ballast.

Is it more energy efficient to remove the ballast?

No, removing the ballast does not make your LED conversion consume less electricity. The ballast is an essential component which converts and regulates power delivered to a fluorescent tube. LEDs also require this power conversion and regulation; it can not be avoided. While it is true that the ballast is not 100% efficient  (nothing is), the LED Tube Lights which require removing the ballast have, simply put, a ballast inside the tube itself. As a result, those products suffer from the exact same inefficiencies as the existing ballast.

Where are EverLED LED Tube Lights manufactured?

EverLED LED Tube Lights are manufactured to the highest possible quality standards in our facility located in Randolph, Vermont in the United States. We do not outsource the manufacturing of our products, and are proud to say "Made In The USA!". EverLED LED Light Tubes qualify for federal projects where procurement rules require domestically made products.
