Better Light for Better Life

RENTON, Wash., July 19, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Aleddra, a Seattle-based high-tech company, announces today its THIRDgeneration (Gen3) emergency LED T8 tube. The company takes great pride in pushing the technology envelope on the emergency LED T8 tubes market because of the benefits and savings that this product and other Aleddra LED lighting products brings to our distributors and customers. Once again Aleddra delivers on its promise of Better Light for Better Life.

This NEW and IMPROVED (Gen3) EM LED T8 tube is designed to replace our very popular (Gen1) Battery Backup T8. (Gen3) improvements:

  • Better energy efficiency - 15W (Gen3) vs. 18W (Gen1)
  • Patented anti-electric shock protection, safety switch on both endcaps. This is the same patented design can be found all the standard Aleddra LED T8 retrofit tubes.
  • Battery shutoff switch – allows distributors and customer to store a "charged tube".
  • Improved Lithium battery.

Please Note - If the emergency LED T8 tube is being installed with an on/off wall switch, the Aleddra (Gen2) emergency LED T8 tube should be your choice. For installations without a wall switch (examples: hallways, night lights or stairwells), the NEW Gen3 Emergency LED T8 tube should be your choice. Both the (Gen2) and (Gen3) REQUIRE the ballast to be bypassed or removed). Below is a technical comparison between (Gen2) and (Gen3) EM LED T8 tubes:
