Hello everyone. I have been sent leds and diodes to replace on my mars reflector. I opened it up and it has no diodes on it at all, they sent what they called protective diodes to be replaced. All the leds are on there but some burned and melted lenses and looks almost like ash. I was told by customer supprt that the engineer said it was a special design?
I thought they should have had them but it never did. It is 2 reflector series lights. Should it be different parts or should i not use it because it needs diodes or what? Please help anyone who has had theirs apart and has a pic? I believe it is suppose to be the 5w model not the 3w.
Thanks for any help in advance
Hi Berulakide, your model is the older version, not upgraded ones, I think my colleague sent you the replacement parts for the new version light. I will check with her and let her get back to you soon. :green_heart:

Hello sara. I was told when I bought them 2 years ago from the mars hydro website that thet were 5w leds not 3w? And the new is 5w isnt it? Why do I have an old model when it wasnt suppose to be? Also why are there no diodes? It looks like a.fire hazard to me? The lights were suppose to.be the newer models notolder ones, would you replace the lights or boards? I dont really trust these lights now not knowing which ones or if they have propper parts?
I would gladly trade them both for a ts 2000 becauae the diodes arent burning out as fast as these do..

Hi @Berulakide , the light of yours is the old version which is the 5w chips, the newer version is with new SMD chips, we upgraded from last year. So if you order before the middle of last year, you might still get the old version light. :green_heart:
Chips are all 5w ones, please don't worry, just the soldering type is different. (older one with lens, the newer one without). And 3w or 5w actually is for led size, not mean the led is really 3w or 5w. Some of the seller take this name and misleading customers mentioned 10w chips, they are actually not real 10w as well, might be as the same as our 3w or 5w version. Look at the real wattage on the specification, and you won't be misleaded.
As to the lgihts, we cannot trade in since the light seems used for a long time, and we also don't have trade in programme. Please don't worry, no matter the older version or the newer version, our lights are ETL certificated, and all the materieal are anti-fire, safe to use, they are not dangerous, we have many grower uses our reflector lights without any problem, just getting good results. :circle-of-love:
If you don't know how to replace the replacement parts, you can also send the light to our repair center, and we will help you fix accordingly :Namaste:
And a kind remind: as the light is not waterproof, also growing environment is special, it will be better you can clear the light now and then, it will help lengthen the lifespan of the light. :green_heart:

Yea i know you dont trade. I was just saying in reliabillity wise. So they have to send me different leds? If they do can they send just 3500k ones the right wattage or something? They could use a little white light. Also what is the purpose of the diodes? Also why are there none on the boards?

We can only sent the chips spectrum based on your old light Sir. :) I think Kelly arranged the correct replacement, because if she sent wrong one, it will not fit the old light.

i have asked the engineer, your light version is the one without protective diodes, even if we sent the protective diodes to you, you cannot use it. :Namaste: Anyway, if you don't feel like doing it, you can ship back to our repair center, our service will help you fix it accordingly. :)

Anyone noticed this video ? From start to finish, and he uses our 2X4 tent with our SP 250 lights. For the spectrum he mentioned, we have already improved and added red into our lights. ;) So feel free to order from our website:

Hey Smoke sara.
When did you update the red and blue in the sp 250 model?

I live in eu, so shipping will be from germany. Du you now i fthese light have been updatet yet?

I need a light from seed to harvest. But after what i seen on YouTube and other places are veg pics and movies even the sponsored Chanels. This make me think that this light is bad for bloom. And the People that you sponsored wasn't Abel to make a desent harvest with the light.

What's for Dinner?

Here's two of the lower fan leaves shown with a standard size dinner plate behind them. The Sapphire Scout is a little less than half way through its flowering time of 70 days.

o_O
I would be chopping those big leaves off in a second lol! Mind you I don’t have the room in my tents for leaves like that haha

Beautiful stuff @Old Salt
I'm going to leave them, as they've stored a lot of energy that can be used in the final push. We'll see what happens, as I've always lollipopped before.

There are three plants in the 2' X 4' tent, with only nine main colas. Three were treated with STS, and removed last week.
