Linear fluorescent replacement
Energy Focus, Inc. started off life as "Fiberstars", and was focused on fiber-optic lighting technology. The company expanded into LED-based solid-state lighting in 2005 and has developed a number of products, including a linear fixture that is designed to replace fluorescent tubes with a higher-efficiency, mercury-free, longer-lasting alternative. This T8 version has a quoted efficacy of 100 lumens per watt, and 1500 lumen output, although the color rendering index (CRI) of 71 is low. Credit: Energy Focus.
