1. A tubular LED lighting device comprising:
an LED, a driver for driving the LED, and an electrical connector;
the lighting device further comprising a thermally triggered switch for prevention of overheating of the electrical connector, wherein
the thermally triggered switch is connected in series between the electrical connector and the driver, and
the thermally triggered switch is configured to interrupt current in the event of the temperature of the electrical connector meeting a triggering condition;
wherein the thermally triggered switch is configured to sense the temperature of the electrical connector via a main body or a probe of the thermally triggered switch.
