Made this out of plastic, 2 LEDs, a straw, and a few watch batteries. One LED is placed at each end of the straw and their pins are just like a real fluorescent. This is it mounted to the ceiling.

You also get the Philips ALTO Q-tip startup effect, so it is like a fluorescent.

Don't be fooLED, T8 IS the worst thing to do to a magnetic T12 fixture.

Better than the real thing. I think I'll throw out all my vintage tubes and just commission some of these from now on.

I've seen lot of other fluorescent lamps (Mainly long T5) that looks like after startup. The Philips ALTO isn't an exception regarding to this. See here and here .

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 hope that LED won't replace all forms of other light

You can get a mercury migration look by only turning on 1 of the LEDs!

Yes a good idea but to make it more realistic you would have to put a red LED to impersonate the argon discharge.
