LED light
    #528239 - 02/17/11 06:42 PM (5 years, 9 months ago)

I'm looking to get an LED light system in order to save money on the electricity bill, I was wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction as for selecting something worth while. Somewhere less than $200 would be nice.

I've never grown, but looking to get about three plants.  Thanks

Search ebay for 120 watt grow lights, you should be able to find a nice one fairly easy.

I love my LED, it's only a three band but does great.
As for replacing a 600 I don't know about that.
I can match my 400 HPS yields tho with out problems.

What's the deal with the direction, 90º on that one i posted. would you recomend that light? i'm drawn to the made/engineered in usa aspect

also, what about 1w vs 3w led's?

Higher wattage the better penetration you'll get.
I haven't played with a 5 band yet, tho it should do better than my three band setup.
That light is made by the same company as mine so I guess it'd be a legit unit.

So if I had that light for example, what could I expect in yield? how many plants would that sustain in soil?

To many viables to say honestly.
It'd greatly depend on strain and grower ability.
But a good grower, who knows his/her strain could easily do 1 to 3 grams per watt.
I wouldn't use that unit in an area over 6 square feet with high expectation either, less of course less would be better.

In my experience, experience is the largest key to yields.

...really ,how is the rate of growth , is the veg time slower with the led ,or is the veg time the same as a hid lamp? does the 120 watt led cover the same sq footage as the 400watt hid?

I noticed during veg growth the limb spacing was closer, making a tighter looking bush.  Other than that not much difference in the two systems.

As far as coverage goes, I wouldn't go beyond 6 square foot for either system.  So I guess the anwer you're looking for is yes.

I'm currently letting a friend use it, along side of a 400 HPS in a 2.5 x 2.5 x 5 foot space, he has just started week 5, day 29 of slowering and this is what it looks like.

They are not that expensive, about $200 for a 120w light that is roughly equivalent to a 400w hps. I'd say that's a good price for not having to swap out bulbs or pay for the extra wattage. If it produces one ounce in its life time it pays for itself. 

I was looking at a switchable hps/mh lamp that was maybe $20 less but did not come with the bulb.

Another thing that appeals to me is the lack of heat. I'm sure HID's are perfectly safe and all, but i'd rather not risk burning down the apartment. Oh, and this is just a stand alone light that will quickly be ready to be thrown in a box in a jam, without having to let it cool.

on order:
light contains 112 x 1 watt LEDs, red/blue/orange/white 19:3:3:3 ratio
Precision blue & white LEDs from Bridgelux USA (growth)

The light I ordered was out of stock.. any comments on this light?
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=290533637583&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT


from the graph's i've seen it looks like chlorafil a needs those violet colors as well as red. this is one of the few that has those extra wavelenght's, but i'm wondering if i should also suppliment it with maybe some panels or something like that.

obviously more light is better, but does anyone know if those 14w led panels are worth a damn?
like this for example...

Those 14w panels are jokes, they'd only be good for side lighting in my personal opinion.

That other unit looks like a nice setup, tho.

One of the biggest points to check for is wattage per bulb, you want at least 1 watt per bulb, tho I'd prefer more.

watts per bulb is why i went with the blackstar. it uses the 3w led.

and yea, i was thinking about maybe supplementing that blackstar with two of those panels, but never as main lighting. $67 for two doesn't seem too bad of a deal, but the 14w aspect really leaves me skeptical. I think it might be better to just save up for another blackstar in the long run.

People buy them direct from China. It's the best deal and you can custom order the spectrum, get the latest shit. Kinda a bitch but it's worth it. Otherwise buy a used one on craigslist.

Tons of fuckers grow budz then bitch out. Tons of LED's out their that work just fine and will for a long time. As long as they aren't first generation, they work well. Even so if it's first gen, just use it for veg and buy it on the cheap.

Knowledge is power, research the shit before you buy it. Any used 3 or 4 band is good enough dude. I had some cutting edge shit for a minute, 3W led's and shit but I'll reinvest soon.

I might even deal with these fuckers myself and start a small business for cutting edge LED's. Once you know the knowledge, it isn't that hard to know what to get. eBay is lame. Don't use them man. They rip you off for not having the knowledge to start your own business or cut out the middle man. Running a business on eBay is weak sauce.
