I installed two of the Feit two tube LED shop lights in my garage shop and they are much better than a comparable fluorescent light fixture. These shop lights are not described on the Feit Web site which makes me believe that these are Costco specials.
These lights come on instantly and are much brighter than my two 150 watt fluorescent lamps. Obviously there is no hum. These are cool white and no UV content so bugs will not be attracted which is important in a garage shop!
The only thing wrong, at least in my opinion, is the supplied mounting hardware. Supplied are two wire hangers that are supposed to be spaced at 45.09” apart. These wire hangers have a loop on one end and a grooved barrel that fit into keyhole slots on the top of the fixture. There is no friction or snap in feature for these barrels on fixture and they can slip out very easily; not secure for a shop light with a pull chain or in earthquake country.
I went the typical mounting method, S hooks and chains, much better in my opinion. Using the chain method I can also relocate the lights as needed.
A review on the Web
Provides many technical details, including a tear down showing the inner working, that were not in the product description with the purchase or on the Feit Web site.
