300W LED Purple Cheese Automatic Grow

69 posts in this topic

I'm all for debate and chat etc, but in the right place. This is deadlocks grow diary where he can show off his plants/equipment etc

To be honest I think it's unfair to clutter his journal with all this LED vs HPS talk ,there are hundreds of threads where all this info can be found with a quick google search

Unless deadlock doesn't mind??, in which case I will zip it and just continue to read lol

Cheers man, yeah good point dude, its just all about the growing.

Good results or not, ill still post for all to see.

Oh i see you should of said a 150 HPS then, or is it? i could run a 250W at a lot lower voltage then a 150 HPS ballast but i wouldnt get the Lumens now would i?

But i can see your point but LEDs do not draw what output wattage they emit. Simple. Its less, but im not gonna argue for the sake of arguing.

There are dudes that have taken pics of their electric usage using LED's compared to HPS, im not trudging through them threads again t prove my point, bet you check it out mate.

There are thousands of ballasts out there, i dont know them all, ill admit that, so you could be right, so

Ill say again AND reiterate, you show me a hps thats the same output (lumens) AND cheaper to run AND cooler then my 300W LED and ill use that instead. Cant be fairer then that.

Yeah ill just keep posting the pics.....let the electronics arguments fly over my head and let the 'more qaulified to argue' deal with it,

Peace All. :yinyang:

oh dear ..your not getting it are you ..ill try and be as simplistic as i can

i have two toasters ..one is black and uses 2 heating elements ..one is red and uses 4 heating elements ,both are 200 watts ..i plug them in for an hour ..they both cost the same to run .although one has double the output ,they still consume the same amount of electricity .so from what you are saying leds use less ,no they dont ..they still consume the same electric the outputs are different though ..and to be fair the outputs cannot be compared unless your comparing p,a.r.

No matter what light is being used .200 watts of led is the same price to run as 200watts of cfl 200watts of hps /mh ..stop thinking its cheaper ..its only cheaper if you reduce how many watts you are using .

Sorry bro your right but all so wrong as you say 200w is 200w no matter what but LEDS lie to us

200w hps pull around 225/230w

200w cfl pull around 205w

225w led black star pulls 125w

So just as a example you see led is cheaper to run not because its watt vs watt but because most LEDs lie with power ratting

Deadlock got my eyes on this bro looking sweet
