Yes, The extensions I got off e-Bay don't meet the specifications. The wall warts that have those cable ends all fit. Angry is a mild way to describe how I feel about it. Furious comes a lot closer.
I just tried my extension out, the hole in the male end is a hair or two smaller than the factory one, so it just about fits on. Female end is fine, so naturally the male is fussy.

Dang, the price was right.

I'm just going to order the proper end for the cable. I've run into parts not meeting the standard before. It's a PITA, especially if you need something that works as soon as you get it.

Same here. As its winter-ish right now, I certainly won't be "needing" one for several months. Who knows, by that time, I may have already upgraded to another Mars Hydro light

Our engineer told me it might be a little difficult to get in the market, but if you can, try to make the correct ones, otherwise, might have problem. :Namaste:

I am so glad it is winter so that you don't have to push time :green_heart:

The other three looks fine, and the fourth will come out soon as well, don't worry. :D
My 3 baby girls under a Mars COB light and in a Mars 5x5 tent. still waiting on the 4th to break the surface. I had some bad seeds so I germinated another Gold Leaf which should come up in a day or two

We've already screwed up the climate enough that it's getting really hard to predict/plan for the weather. This time last year, it was still too hot to run a grow indoors here. Last week, I was wearing a t-shirt and sweating as I mowed the grass - 36 hours later, overnight, it dropped down to 16°F (-8.9°C) and snowed.

Which sucks, because I haven't fired up my furnace yet (and don't want to :( ). On the other hand, I'm guessing it won't be too hot to run some Mars-Hydro lights ;) .

Wow, the temperature difference is so big! :eek: Take care, don't get cold!

Got my final weight on my Dark Devil auto and M.O.B auto.
DDA total was 190gr of flower including 28g fluffy/airy bud and 16g sugar shake.
This plant alone blew my entire previous grow out of the water.
M.O.B auto yielded 176g of flower and 20g sugar shake.

The 2 plants were started around 40 days apart but DDA took longer than I expected to finish while MOB finished almost exactly on time.
Over 360g off 2 autoflower plants is pretty damn good if you ask me lol

... :thumb: ...that's a nice pull on the DDA...you're the only person I've seen get a green pheno...from what I've seen of purple one's(mine included) they are generally lower yielder's...although I did see one nice one, a friend of a friend grew that was a beauty...

Congrats on the Harvest!...:yahoo:...cheerz...:high-five:...h00k...:hookah:

Nice! I'm going to tell my buddy what your harvest amount was. One plant, right? He was bummed because he only got two ounces. His grow was ever so slightly half-assed, so he assumed he might have done a little better, but has no idea how much better.

a friend of a friend grew that was a beauty...
LMAO, and - coincidentally - that's the plant my buddy grew! He only got a couple ounces, if I remember correctly. Was a pretty plant, though, although that's about 297th on the list of things to care about (IMHO). His was a simple grow: A five-gallon GeoPot full of 37.5% Fox Farm Ocean Forrest, 37.5% Fox Farm Happy Frog, and 25% perlite, with approximately half the "label dosage" of Osmocote Plus mixed into it. He mostly just gave it plain (tap) water, and didn't do any pH adjusting. Light was from a Mars II 900 (around 354 watts, I think), and it was in a space too large for the light with mylar emergency blankets used for reflective material. Lowest of low-budget grows, lol; I gave him everything but the light (the seed was given to me by someone who had it given to them - kindness tends to spread like oil around here some days), and SweetSue was kind enough to win that for him when SmokeSara did the giveaway last year. So you could say he still got his money's worth ;) . I had hoped that he'd have been able to get a tent by now (I've strongly recommended the Mars-Hydro 39"x39"x70" one as best fitting his needs, abilities, and available lighting), but he's poor like me, so that hasn't happened.
