    I’ve found plug and play, ballast compatible tubes for around $8 each here in WA but I know they’re subsidized by the state. Also, those Costco whole fixtures with two tubes each were only $20 this last weekend which is why I picked up another one. There are deals out there that are making things more cost effective, but I’m sure it varies a lot by location.

    That’s a killer price. The lowest here I have seen is still over $50 for the 2 tube fixture.

    Yup same here,
    I’m going to have to get some replacement led tubes for my garage, one of them is not working properly, it’s flashing and humming

    Maybe crossing the border would save you enough to make it worth it? I don’t know what with all the craziness and tarriffs changing daily on things but it might be worth looking into.

    I used to buy tools and accessories from CPO Bosch, and have them shipped to my border mail service, then just cross over and pick them up, tools were easy to hide and leave in the truck or trunk, but it may be harder for lights and things like that,

    I don’t think I’d save all that much, I believe that they have the tubes here in some big box stores, I’ll just have to make time and start inquiring into them.

    Thanks for the suggestion Charlie,

    I added a few more plug in LED tubes above my benches after I converted all of my tube fluorescent lights to LED.

    Hi…with the lights that I linked, the ballast is very small (think size of a box of Chicklets) and the wiring is much more streamlined/simplistic. My fans were also “built in” to my bulbs. NO additional parts to screw in. The bulb base clipped right where the traditional halogens were typically placed, and then the bulb/fan assembley twist-locked

    Indeed. But where is the ever so typical link associated to it?

    Costco’s two tube LED shoplight puts out great light. I picked up quite a few at $20. Highly recommended.

    For some time I have wanting to change the Dust to Dawn yard light I installed after buying my place. I found a LED light to replace my yard light with. My old light was 75 watt and my new LED light is 40 watt.

    I will have to buy a few of those , but I have heard that they only work on the newer T8 balast ? Unless you know anything about this , I have been replacing to many of those friggin neons I replaced the fixture a few years ago on 1 garage bay , I have two others that needs replacing.
    Not sure if I should buy the new led kit or buy the whole T8 and replace those neons when they burn.

    Those look interesting , how does the camera work , does it work of the phone for storage , or do you need a memory card/chip to insert in the lights , also where did you get them from.

    I am really sure how they work. I yet to open the box and read the instructions. I think you use your phone for storage. I plan on looking at them today. I got them from Liquidation place. I think these lights can be bought at Costco.

    Oh ok , let me know when you get a chance , I wouldn’t mind a few of them for the pool shed those coach lights , and the spot lights for behind the shed
    I saw a model at Costco early this spring , but I think they are out of them , it was a model that you could actually remove and use as a lantern , pretty cool concept.

    I took a few pictures of info on the box. They are from Costco. Maybe you could do a search for them. They are called Maximus Smart Security light. I think Home Depot sells lights like this.
    We plan on using the coach light at the front of the house and the floodlight at the side door. The floodlight will show a light towards the driveway and the backyard.

    Oh that looks good , seems like it can be stored in the cloud , very interesting
    I’m definitely going to be looking at these or something like this.
