1. An LED-based light comprising:

  • an elongate tubular housing having longitudinal axis and a vertical axis orthogonal to the longitudinal axis,wherein the housing defines an outer periphery of the LED-based light and a cavity,wherein the housing comprises a base, a first canted outer wall, and a second canted outer wall, andwherein a surface of each of the base, the first canted outer wall, and the second canted outer wall defines a substantially identical arced profile in cross-section orthogonal to the longitudinal axis;

    an LED circuit board positioned within the cavity;

    a plurality of LEDs positioned on the LED circuit board;

    end caps positioned at opposite ends of the housing, wherein each end cap comprises a respective bi-pin connector protruding from the end cap, the bi-pin connectors being compatible with a fluorescent light fixture; and

    a support enclosed by the housing, the support comprising a planar portion and two sidewalls extending from opposing ends of the planar portion, each sidewall being contoured to and aligned flush against a respective curved interior portion of the housing, and the LED circuit board being positioned on the planar portion.
