LUMII Black Super Lumens

I've been using the Lumii black ballasts electronic ballasts for a while now with 250w and 400w bulbs and they've never let me down. However, I'm a little intrigued by the 'super lumen' setting above the 600w level. From what I can find on the web, this increases the power delivered to the bulb by 10% (660W) which results in a 5-10% increase in output. A 600w bulb should produce 90000 lumens at rated power but could possibly produce a little over 96000 lumens assuming an increase of 7%. This would be suitable for a 1.2m grow space assuming a minimum requirement of 60000 lumens per meter squared for flower.

 

Does anyone have any info/experience on this?

600watt is good for a metre or a 1.2metre tent. Some run a 1000w in a 1.2metre.

660watts will

be fine in a 1.2m

be fine in a 1m as well as long as fans can handle it and hottest months might be a little hot
