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;

    a 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;

    an open end configured to receive a respective end of the housing,a closed end comprising a first surface and a second surface encircling the first surface, wherein each of the first surface and the second surface are tapered longitudinally towards the open end, anda bi-pin connector protruding from the closed end,wherein each end cap defines a first corner, a second corner, and a third corner, and wherein for each end cap, a tapering of the first surface and the second surface is greatest in a region proximate to the first corner.
