LUX magazine : Are commercial LED tubes safe?
LUX magazine has produced a timely and useful video explaining the controversy surrounding the safety of commercial tube LEDs.

It appears that buyers still need to take considerable care when sourcing their tube LEDs as electrical fittings are likely to need rewiring and several of the designs on the market could easily give electric shocks to anyone touching them!

As with anything electrical, it is clearly important to take great care when making purchasing decisions and to talk to people who know what they are talking about that you can trust.

As things stand, always make sure that you are fully briefed on all of the relevant safety issues.
