Anyone have experience with these?

by Abeginner » Fri Oct 30, 2015 1:07 pm

So I'm in the process of getting a few more lights. I have found these, two 300w Led Grow Light Uses 3w Epileds Chips.. Anyone have any experience with these epileds chips? Or should I go with something else? I'm wanting to stay in a $140 ish price range!Image

I personally wouldn't use any panel that runs LEDs at 100% power. It significantly cuts down on their lifetime and causes them to fade, as well as running at a lower efficiency. It's common among Chinese manufacturers so they can advertise the highest possible light output at the cheapest manufacturing cost.

Of course panels running at lower power will cost more because they need more LEDs to produce the same amount of light.

I bought one for 12 dollars without the fans... It's okay I only bought to increase heat to remove powdery mildew...
