    Was gonna make my first seed purchase from CKS but went with Nirvana. I've seen a number of posts about CKS and the way they treat people amongst a slew of other issues.

    at the risk of inciting a riot on the internet...I have an opinion.

    I work in a warehouse for an industrial lighting manufacturer/distributor. Street lights, High bay lights, Parkades and parking lots etc...
    COB is definitely the "thing" it seems now, however after speaking with a few sales reps I'm not going to be rushing out and buying one any time soon.

    The guy who sells these things, whose pay check comes from them selling, told me (today) COB have a higher burn out rate and run much hotter.

    The bigger the cluster, the higher the heat/burn out rate.

    That's what this is about man, information not egos. Thanks for the heads up I'll have to look into it.

    Cobs don't burn out nearly as often as single diodes in blurples. Mine have 10 year warranty on chips. Street lights, high bays are normally in a sealed case(weatherproof), with cheaper drivers, and they are passively cooled, they simply overheat. I've changed few hundred, that has happened to.

    Its actually the opposite. They are encased in NEMA rated enclosures. Especially if being sold for industrial purposes Nothing below NEMA 4.

    These have heat synchs that weigh more than you and me brother. He has no reason to blow smoke up my ass. I'm not buying from the guy. Just giving me his 40 plus years of experience in the lighting biz.

    I've no doubt that you're growing great stuff. Just taking the advice and words from someone with much, much more expertise in the field.

    Peace.

    Re: Why buy Crop King Seeds

    Your right they have big heatsinks, but they are encased and they are passively cooled(no fan). They hold a lot of heat. Nema 4 is a weatherproof enclosure.

    Does the guy load trucks? Or actually builds the lights? Most warehouse guys I've known aren't to knowledgeable, that's why 5% are damaged during shipping lol . There's one thing I'm 100% sure about and that's electricity. But that's just wrong info, surf around all the sites you can find and just show me where the Cree, vero, and citizen chips have a high tendency to burn out. That's why they have long warranty on chips. I'll ask the rep at work what percentage of cob lights, that gets toasted in first 2 years, he should know, he's the one that has to replace them.

    I'm not trying to be cocky but I've installed 1000's of outdoor led lights in past 2 years alone, not once have I gone back to replace one. Had many bad photo cells, or just broke in shipping.

    Thanks for liking the grow

    Okay that was rude. I'm a warehouse guy. He's an experienced salesman. I handle the products daily.

    Your opinion must be right. Just an un knowledgeable warehouse donkey here. Let's just agree to disagree.

    Bye.

    Re: Why buy Crop King Seeds

    I didn't mean to be rude, I apologize if I came off that way. In my experience with outdoor lights, haven't had any chips burn up. Sorry if I came off that way, I know I'm a dick to work for, I get reminded daily. Here's a pic of lights putting in now, there's no ventilation, with temp gun, the housing is 146 degrees F. You can imagine how hot inside would be
