RENTON, Wash. -- Aleddra, a Seattle-based high-tech company, announces 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.
