CIRP : Buying T5 fluorescent lamps
CIRP : Casa Idaman Renovation Project
This will be the final purchase that I’m doing for my house renovation – buying T5 fluorescent lamps to be used in the L-Box of the ceiling. The purchase of this is left to be last since the wireman needs to look at how the final L-Box will look like, and then only he can tell on the length of T5 tubes to get, and how many.
Turned out that T5 is actually the designation is used to classify the diameter of the fluorescent lamp. And as always, I’m introduced to so many jargons, and in the case of T5 lamps, you can either get the 2 wires one or the 3 wires one. Obviously the later one is more expensive.
The chosen shop for today’s purchase is Y.T. Lighting Trading since they offered the cheapest compared to the other neighboring shops.
And here you go, the goods from today’s final shopping for house renovation,
19 x 4-feet T5 fluorescent lamps and 11 x 3-feet T5 fluorescent lamps. I’m getting the 3-wire one as requested by my con.
The content of the box is very minimal. The lamp tube itself and the power cord. The lamp really looks like the mini version of the fluorescent lamp that you usually use.
But T5 got a very special connect at both ends, where you can link up to 5 lamps together.
