How long is this tube?

New lighting technologies is a pity fest everywhere you look. From LEDs that last only for two months, to a never-ending global starvation of t8 fluorescent tubes.

I don't think it would be possible, because it would be longer than normal 2ft tube. 16 watt is pretty low wattage for such a length. Tho I am now questioning my knowledge about what the letter F means before the presumed wattage, because I always thought that (for example) F40 means 40 watt. F96 is 96 watt, but I found out that F96 is actually 125 watts and F40 is actually 48 watts.. Can someone explain to me: To what excatly the letter F stands for before the number of what I thought was the actual wattage of the tube?

In fact there are different definitions between standard bi-pin lamps and special lamps.
Let the format be F'xx' T'yy'.
For bi-pin lamps, 'xx' represents the wattage, 'yy' represents the tube thickness.
e.g., F40T12, 40W, T12, 1200mm
For other type of lamps(slimline, HO, VHO, appliance), 'xx' usually represents the length of the tube instead of the wattage.
e.g., F72T12 slimline, 59W, T12, 6ft(72inch)

No more cheapy crappy Chinese junk, please.

26 inch lamps are indeed a standard. They are for appliances such as for stoves. The tubes are usually 18w but can differ some depending on brand. I have one that is 19w but they all work the same. They are strictly a preheat lamp
