Have you ever tried to make a DIY LED tube? LED tube light, as other led lights, like led downlight, are popular among consumers. Actually, it is easy to be found in the markets. But to make a DIY LED tube really sounds a good choice since it can teach you more when doing it. What's more, it is a cost-effective choice for home lighting or office lighting. LED tube light can be used to replace your fluorescent light in your home actually.

First of all, you should prepare things you will need, like 1 PVC pipe (36 inches long, 2 inches diameter), soldering iron or solder wire, 150 white LED lights, 4 IN4007 diodes, three 100 ohms resistors, 1 meter resistor 1/4w,  14/36 connective wire, drill, and so forth.

Second, cut your pvc pipe in half along its length.

Third, you are advised to drill holes across the entire length of the PVC pipe at equal intervals. The holes should be larger than the led lights if you want to house the LED lights actually. So, when you prepare the pvc pipe and make the holes, you should take consideration of these for a perfect DIY work.

Fourth, insert all the led lights into the holes and firmly affix them. Make sure the polarity of the LEDs all have the same orientation. They touch one another as this is required to create the requisite lighting effect by cutting all of your LED leads.

Fifth, you can solder 3 separated series of 50 LED lights by soldering their joints. Connect the positive and negative leads of the led lights together to join your 3 series of led lights together in a parallel fashion.

Last, create a bridge configuration rectifier by joining the four diodes together. Connect the right points to the LED lights. You can plug it in if you want to test its working condition.
