I actually bought LED tubes! Six to be exact. These are going in the German beer signs I got all the Euro lamps and gear out of.

The Cinemall mall have lot of 18W NISKO LED tubes, that installed in dummy fluorescent fixtures without ballasts.

I"m don't speak English well, and rely on online translating to write in this site.
Please forgive me if my choice of my words looks like offensive, while that isn't my intention.

I only working with the European date format (dd.mm.yyyy).

I lives in Israel, which is a 230-240V, 50hz country.

Doesn't bother me! If they keep improving the way they should, it may be an important technology to have around on a planet with increasing human demand of energy and resources. That's just reality as I see it. Personally, to me LED is boring as hell and I didn't like them being forced out there, especially before they are reliable enough, but it seems things are catching up; so, I won't really complain. I have enough vintage stuff to last me a lifetime anyway, lol.

Sign backlighting is actually one of the only few valid uses for those things

Why that LED tubes would be valid for sign backlighting? Looking at a bright sign that have a harash bluish color.

Decent LED tubes appear in normal White color in the K you want. The brightness will be according to the sign size, number of tubes in it, power of the tubes, and how much light the sign panels block

These are 3500K. They look a little "cooler" than 3500K fluorescents, but still give off a pretty comfortable light.

I like my lamps thick, my ballasts heavy, and my fixtures tough.

Trader Joe's here uses Daylight LED Tubes, I think. And it's only very slightly dim, not enough to notice unless you were looking for it. But it's a little glary.

They ruined the fluorescent lights with this junk? It should be "Traitor Joes" instead.

Any machine is a smoke machine if you operate it wrong enough.

It opened relatively recently, so it likely had LED tubes from the start.
But I noticed that one of the bathrooms had what looked to be really good LED tubes, or fluorescent.

I haven't particularly warmed up to the LED "tubes" yet either, but I've seen a couple retrofits that were actually an improvement over what they replaced in "egg crate" or parabolic or louvered fixtures; they're usually quite glory but through the egg crate troffer fixtures they look sharp compared to F34T12s. And I've gotten rid of most of my CFLs for new A-line LEDs, those work great and the 2700K ones are honestly a more convincing incandescent substitute IMO than CFLs ever will be. (although I generally prefer 5000K or 6500K).

So this is one designed to run right off mains. Wonder what would happen if you connected to a ballast? (with preheat I would assume...it'd just operate normally?) RS would be?? (might run fine on a LPF?)

Colored Fluorescent's such as F40T12 Red or  Green or Blue are awesome...

Probably nothing would happen. The power only goes to one end, and the other end has no electrical connection. The pins aren't even shunted together.

I was thinking if you re-wired with the ballast outputs connected (the blue + 1 red in the case of RS) to that end...
