I can find single ones here, but not as yet, doubles. Certainly much more streamline.

I went for the LED tubes on the recommendation from one of my sons. They were expensive but I did not look around for the best price (used google). I had to travel quite a way to get them as I recall and as they were for the garage I got the bright white. If they were for indoors SWMBO would have wanted the warm white ( :) ). They cost £70.00 for two, but they are brilliant in every sense of the word.
Yes they come on immediately. No flicker at all.
They have their own electronic gubbins as a connection to the mains.
I am very pleased with them 8-).

I got two this week, fitted one to my mums kitchen. 5ft nice and bright. £19 for two. They are direct replacement for the tubes but you must remove the starter first. Got them from Ebay here https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2x-LED-T8-Tu ... 2749.l2649
