First time grow, 4x4 tent, can’t decide which led to get

As already mentioned I can’t decide what LEDs to go for. Looking at kind led, advanced platinum led or optics led.. also thinking if I should go with 1 big one or 2 smaller ones

Any help would be high appreciated 

P.s sorry if this is in the wrong place

There are plenty of folk using LEDs so I'd read up on what they are using.

 

I'm sure someone will answer you soon with a specific brand.

 

Others might perhaps encourage you to go with a 315w CMH or even a digital ballast which can switch from 250w up to 600.

 

If put on the spot I'd say its easier with a dimmable HPS ballast.

 

But, its entirely your choice.

 

Good luck either way.

it makes no odds to the electricity bill mate, a watts a watt, it doesn't matter what kind of light its from, its all charged at the same rate....

Black Dog LED all the way and ive only got a small one (heard it all before lol)

 

Had great results from Mars Hydros to so don't let people put them down,they're good for beginners and will see you through to the point where you won't need to ask what lighting you want as you'll know.

 

Black Dog LED is F*****g expensive but built to a quality standard not a price like most. In fact if you go on the website they have some good research around the use of LED so even if you don't buy one it's quite an interesting read.

I done my research on black dog not a fan of them read a few bits that weren’t to supportive on them but I’ll give them a look over again, I may have to just start with mars hydro. I really don’t know where to start with the lights

I am thinking of putting 2x p600 into a 4x4 tent. This should be very good setup or overkill you think?
