    Used equipment, is it safe?

    First time using HID lighting. Just picked up a reflector, 600w MH lamp, and Apollo 600 ballast to replace my T5 setup. Hooked it all up, fired the light with no issue. On closer inspection, the ballast (model # uhps-d600) doesnt specifically say it can run MH lamps. Ballast is making a high...

    Did you buy real 1000W LED grow lights?

    Many suppliers sell 1000w led grow lights recently. It shows many growers are asking for 1000W led. But when you buy 1000W led, did you consider if your plants really need the leds with that high power? Is it real 1000w LED from the wall? If not, how can we judge how many watt lights is suitable...

    These LED lights vs two 600 HPS in a 5x5?

    two 900W LED vs Two 600W HPS I'm pretty sure two 600 hps would be better, but how much better? Can I get a great yield from two of these led ligths in a 5x5? Is the HPS going to be far superior? I'm not advertising, never tested this product

    Light for 27"x27"x63" Grow Tent

    Hey all! So I ended up buying a 600W LED grow light, yet it does produce quite a bit of Heat. Even for an LED fixture as I have two 4" inch fans that push 195CFM and it still hits about 77-80F. It says its equivalent to running a 300W HPS/HID which I still seem to doubt although it is extremely...
