Our lounge is lit by 2x8ft fluorescent tubes. After 15 years (and they
weren't new when we moved in !) one has packed up.
Looking at prices and alternatives, I see you can get LED replacements
which (AFAICT) are direct plugins.
Given fluoros are quite low power anyway, what's the groupthink on this ?
Replace with LED (and is there a recommended make ?) or stay old-school,
and just get a new tube ?
I have swapped the two over (there is a slight tension when waving an 8ft
tube around) and it's 100% the tube. Not starter or ballast.
