Much respect. I'm very mechanically inclined but I can't solder worth a damn. I can sweat pipe (same basic principal) but you put the soldering iron in my hand and I turn epileptic. Wagos were a gift from the gods in my case.
There is alot involved in driver types and especially how hard you drive your boards. My go to sources for info atm are Growmau5 and greengenes on youtube. They have just revived their old live stream too called tech talk.. led specialists.
I emailed the company where Tead and Graytail got their Q-board setups. Explained I was trying to replace the area currently covered by a 600w HPS, told them I don’t know much about LED terminology and have an IQ of 3, and asked if they could sort of hold my hand and help me understand the options.
Now I feel kinda like I’m holding hands with a mathematics major from the University of Planet Zeeblegrok12.
Anyone feel inclined to decipher this one for me ?
At least so far as to say whether it’s a good setup. I won’t be mad if you don’t.

Seems obvious it must need assembling. Beyond that I don’t understand the numbers much. Nor do I necessarily care that much to wade through all the numbers if I can avoid it. It’s good to have that info available if you need it, but I feel like I have too many pursuits in life already to put in all the hours to learn this stuff and am just looking for a more user-friendly analysis. Thanks guys
I don’t understand the numbers in the email from ‘Kitty’ I quoted. before I start running all this gibberish through a search engine and then chasing down a zillion articles - I figured someone who’s already put in the mileage studying these may recognize at a glance wtf ‘she’ is talking about.
You nailed it Chris. I want to buy:
- a good driver
- a great light
NOT on my personal shopping list is:
“ 304 Plus FOLITE-240H-2 kits in 3000k+660nm 2pcs 304led plus pcb (Pcb size:286*174*1.6mm, 49-137w, 102-114v, 480-1200mA, 256pcs samsung 3000k leds and 48pcs Epistar 660nm leds), 1pcs HLG-240H-C12100B MW driver, 1pcs 632*195*10mm”
I’m pretty sure I don’t know how to pronounce that.
