just installed 32 8 foot twin row LED bulbs in our shop. when they are all tuned on at the same time, it's a sight.
I am fixing to order some, when you say twin row are you talking about the leds in the tube or twin row lights
Thanks Mitch How many K did you get (COLOR)

For the adventurous people might look at these

Solder mains power wires directly to these $2 chips, and mount on a heat sink for massive cheap lights. Inside or outside or... They do have flicker (leds turn on and off rapidly) and if that bothered some in a particular application, but then there is a quick fix. He is mainly playing with a true 20w, since that is a ton of light with LEDS.

Our state government in their eternal quest to be green has created a thing called 'REES' [Retailer energy efficiency scheme] , and if your business meets a commercial criteria can be eligible to have old fluorescent tube lighting replaced with LED tube inserts free of charge ,including installation by a qualified electrician who also signs off on the job for safety and compliance .They changed 40 odd tubes here , the workshop light is great and now,and at a much lower power consumption. Notice i did not say lower cost ,,,,,, our state has the highest electricity supply charges than anywhere else in the world ,, yes that's right ,, our state's love affair with propellers and panels has nearly wrecked a once reliable power system and bent us over royally , all because coal is a dirty word.

The last LED fixture that I bought at the electrical store he told me that there are bulbs available that you can watch LED bulbs available that you can wire directly in your existing fixture but they were stupid expensive

Not expensive but it's all relative. You really need to read this thread from the beginning.

Once a few more of the old 8' bulbs in my garage die I'm going LED. Sam's Club has these Honeywell fixtures that are very tempting:

https://www.samsclub.com/sams/linkable- ... roduct:1:2

They are very similar to the ones at menards but a little brighter (4500 vs 4200 lumens), a little more efficient (42 vs 50 watts), and of course a bit more expensive. One is $35 but a 10 pack is $300 so the same price. Up to 10 can be linked in a chain with the included 5' and 6" cables so wiring is easy, and they are Energy Star 2.0 rated if your utility or state has a rebate program. Anyway, just another option if you shop at Sam's Club (or have a friend who does :-)).

This is what I bought. I got the V shaped 8 foot and had them in 5 or 6 days. Very happy with them so far
