LED T5 lights can be a little trickier to replace than LED T8 tubes. It is important to check the brand of tube you are looking to purchase, and see if it requires either a direct to mains connection (causing the fitting to be rewired) or alternatively it may require a specific brand of control gear to operate. This can be checked by looking inside your fitting and search the part code found on the ballast on the manufacturers recommended control gear list.
The difference between T8 & T5 tube lights is the diameter of the tube, T5 LED Tube lights are 15mm diameter and the T8 versions are 25mm diameter. Typically T5 LED tubes come in a variety of shorter lengths, and tend to be used in applications ranging from under cabinet lights, to small garage lights. LED T8 tubes often offer larger sizes, that are more durable due to the increased thickness, so are suitable for larger fittings and for lighting bigger spaces.
