Recommend an LED light for 50x50x100cm tent.

25 posts in this topic

Hi,

 

My tent arrives later today and I'm starting the kit process.

I have been recommended to speak to @diyleduk as they seem like the LED god around here. I will do that, but in the meantime I would also like to get some broader research.

Does anyone have any suggestions for off the shelf lights that will fit a 50cm x 50cm x 100cm grow tent?

 

 

Ideally under £100, as quiet as possible and suitable for both veg and flowering, and from Amazon, but I'm not that fussy where it comes from. lol

I know that's very specific criteria and possibly a big ask, but go big or go home right? ;)

 

Thanks in advance.

 I second Monkeypig on that one, get a proper one from Diyleduk, better value for money and your'll end up with a better unit that what you may wind up with buying off the shelf.

I have a scope 150 from @diyleduk - which might just fit in your tent.

I have mentioned this before:

 

Off the shelf Full Spectrum LED noisy rubbish from Amazon - be my guest. Noisy with fans. You will regret it. In fact you can have the one I have gathering dust. Weird purply thing

 

150w LED scope from diyleduk. Great with no noise. You won't regret it. Oh it will fit your tent. I grow in a 60 x 60 x 140cm. Excellent coverage and very easy on the bill.

Have you considered a high yielding, cheap HPS instead? :wassnnme:

 

there is very little hit and miss in that market, and the wattage advertised is the real leccy draw!

I will second this! Will also third, fourth and fifth it too lol

 

I made the mistake and I can't agree more with the noise the fecker is almost as loud as my fan!! Will be upgrading after this run for sure :wallbash:

 

@CBDevious If you go for LED don't cut corners and buy something decent. It is an investment worth making due to things like leccy cost just as a starter. Even mine is good on power so a good unit from the likes of @diyleduk will probably be even better, got to bear in mind that the weather is (very slowly) getting warmer too and HPS would probably be a nightmare in the coming months unless your intake/outtakes is massively up to the job.

Avoid Am***n, and don't believe the reviews you read on their site either.  If you want a light that does an amazing job at growing weed, listen to what the guys (who actually grow weed - and grow it well) have already suggested by sticking with the site sponsor.  I can't fault mine which beats the shit out of the crap I had before (strangely, from Am***n).

Thank you for all the advice. I've seen that the Amazon ones arent good, once I got looking at watts and what it pulls from the wall vs what it puts out etc.

I've messaged @diyleduk but it didnt send, probs coz I'm a newbie with few posts?

Either way, he responded to a forum post too. I'm waiting for his stock to hit online today!. :)

I've just ordered the 150w dimmable, which @diyleduk said to not run at full power and get a watt meter... 

I'm hoping one of you can shed some light on that? Ive also asked in that topic but it may not be the place as it's about stock. Hence reposting the Q here. 

 

Thanks guys.

If you buy a wattmeter which are about a tenner, plug it in and plug the light into it then you can adjust the wattage output and know what it is set at as the wattmeter tells you the draw

mate maybe he is worried that a 150w might be too bright for your space at full power,And if you get a watt meter you can tell exactly what power your plants are getting, there isn't a dial on the light you can tell min and max but anything in between is a guess without a watt meter
