This is a 12 VOLT tube. DO NOT PUT IN A 110v Fixture. 12 Volt 4 foot tubes are hard to find. These can be used in existing fixtures that run off of 12 volts, or if you wish to convert a standard fixture to 12 volt use, these are great for that too. 12 volts tubes are excellent light sources for Off Grid living, utility trailers, or anywhere you want a lot of light.
NOTICE: Requires a simple rewire to the fixture to eliminate the wasteful and troublesome ballast. See the link below for typical installation instructions for T8 tubes. Do not install these into a 120v environment or they will be damaged the the warranty void.

Very good bulb. This was a warranty replacement. I can say m4led stands behind thee
I have to be honest - I was worried the led tubes would emit that harsh blue light, so I sought out competitors before I ordered from M4 - all of that searching and apprehension was immediately dispelled when I turned them on for the first time! Excellent design and perfect color spectrum! No hum - no problem with pointing them in the right direction - easy to upgrade! Simply perfect!
I couldn’t be more pleased. This completed the total change out to led lighting in my motorhome. This size until I found m4products Could not be found. Retrofit and iinstall took about 10 minutes. Great lights and temperature was correct for lighting bright but not blue white. A great warm
Not only is the product great but the delivery was better than Amazon. 3000 miles in 3 days.
Perfect brightness. Great quality. Easy conversion from florescent fixture to LED in our coach.
This light is far better than the original florescent bulb it replaced in every aspect except one. I bought two of the 48" tubes and they operate flawlessly. The only let down was that only one end on only one tube would turn a full 90° in order for the tubes to face straight downward from the side facing sockets that hold and energize the tube. I was under the impression by what the description said that the ends rotate a full 90° in either direction giving the ends essentially 180° of rotation I'm living with it rather than send them back, where I can't find that option worth my valuable time. All in all they do the job as a viable alternative to costly florescent bulbs that are far less efficient. I do know that there staff were very friendly and knowledgeable when I ordered the bulbs. M4 Note: Caps can be rotated to point down or sideways, if you are seeing something different, please contact us asap for resolution. We inspected stock and the ones here seem fine. Also, turn the caps completely in the other direction and they may end up in the proper position.
Owner was so helpful with my LED conversion in RV. Bulbs were of highest quality. I will definitely do more business with this company in the future. They make you feel as though you're their only customer. First class customer service, not to mention super,super fast shipping. Keep up the great work!!!
