T5 is a particular type of high-output fluorescent tube. They are far brighter than the older standard T8 type lights and they are powered by a special T5 ballast.
Replacement tubes are pretty inexpensive and we would suggest 18 months usage time between changing the tubes.
- T5 fluorescent tubes maintain lumen output longer and generally cost less than HID lamps.
- LightWave T5 lights can be hung vertically or horizontally.
- LightWave T5 will support both the growth/veg stage and bloom/flowering stage.
- Ideal for use in enclosed spaces with less heat build-up.
