asked in another thread yesterday but nobody answered so lets try this again,

I don't know much about electronics.
I'm curious about t8 ledtubes and have aquired 3.
I have a cable with wich I can hook one of the lamps straight to a multisocket.
is there a cable with wich I can connect a further tube to the first one , so both work, or do I have to feed the second one back into the socket.

also, is there a cable equivalent that I can use to hook one up to the cables that come from the wall , like I would normaly hook up a lamp ( sorry for the weird way of saying this, german here) is it maybe a g13 socket ?

There are two different types of LED tubes:

Ones that behave like a fluorescent bulb, so you can just put them in tube fittings and they work

Ones that just look like fluorescent tubes so they fit in tube fittings but you have to wire the bulb fitting straight to the mains, without any of the fluorescent ballast.

It sounds like your tubes are the second type, which means you can run a second bulb's mains lead from either end of the first bulb's mains lead, and so-on. This is called connecting them in "parallel".

There'll be terminals inside the tube fitting for you to do this; just use proper mains lead and match the colours. If your fittings have a green/yellow earth wire, you need to connect this all the way back to the wall too, for safety.
