Dirt cheap florescent replacement tubes at lowes
 
Looks like they are cleaning house at lowes.
I went back to buy a spare T8 led hybrid and they were gone from their spot.
Along with a bunch of other stuff.
Found the T8 hybrid leds in a clearance pile in the middle of the store.
I also needed some high output 54w T5 and a standard 28w T5.
I found the old 28w T5 tubes on clearance for $3.50, along with a bunch of T8, T12, T8/T12 stuff, some LED replacement.

So if you have some weak or burned out florescent tubes, now is the time to get them going.

That 1 single 28w T5 I replaced has shown me how dull my other T5 tunes have gotten and they are only a few years old.
The GE 28 watt tube rated for 30,000 hours is $10, the utilitech is rated for 3,000 is $3.50.
I'm going to get more of the cheap clearance ones, since they do get broken on accident from time to time.
Other wise I would buy the good ones.

I tried my old T8 tube in a new commercial industrial ballast.
The 34 watt tubed are only allowing 25 or 26 watts of power through per tube, so they look pretty dull.

The stores here are finally clearancing their bulbs. They had the big boxes of t8 LEDs for $2 a tube for the 6500k. Not bad but they are replacement ones and Im only using direct wire bulbs as I don't want the hassle and extra power waste of still needing a ballast.
