I just got one of these disc lights being referenced and they are insane. This one is brighter than all of my T5's and makes it look like my Yescoms aren't even on. You could probably run one of 240W lights by itself in a Mylar grow tent. The mounting system leaves a little to be desired but that's a simple fix. You can hook onto the light on the sides. The lights have a threaded top, I plan on getting some ready-rod and 3d printing a mounting bracket that will allow me to angle them anyway I want. That being said I would defiantly buy more of these at the price. They do get a little toasty but nothing good airflow shouldn't be able to handle.

Glad you like your purchase! Keep me updated if any quality concerns arise.

There’s no need to waste extra wattage on a fan, and you cannot control it with your phone. It’s a budgets friendly panel that is highly affordable, excellent quality, and high power compared to what’s out there within similar price brackets. If you require it to be controlled with your phone you can always use a wifi module compatible with an app like smart life and do your own wiring, I’ve done this and it works perfectly fine though the app. You can control brightness, set schedules, and turn it off and on through the app.

Even with the wifi module installed, it is still cheaper than the other light you showed me.

Those are massive, how long have you been growing them?

They were purchased at a young adult size around May, each with a single growth point

Just thought I'd mention something about your website. You might want to consider changing the color of your font. I was going to check out your light but the lime green font was hard to read...low-contrast doesn't go well with my aging eyes. So, I left before reading much of anything. Just sayin'...

If you used a darker font here it would be easier to read:

Been a little over a year since I started this project. I’m highly disappointed one side isn’t growing as well as the rest though. Hopefully it perks up asap

Growth slowed a lot, but I also haven’t been fertilizing anymore.
