Hey everyone my first post on here.

Just recently started my first grow in a 4x4 using a 600w HPS lighting setup.

 

The amount of electricity being used by this has been some what a pain in the arse. So, ive started looking into LED's and come across the mars hydro line of budget lights. I've watched a few videos about the coverage of them and the power usage. The TS3000 which covers a 4x4 would use more than the HPS bulb. However, a TS600 covers a 2x2 and uses alot less power from the wall.

 

Surely i could just use 2 x TS600?

If anyone else has used these lights with a similar setup any advice would be appreciated, thanks!

I stopped reading at mars hydro, I wouldn't go there personally.  You could replace 600 hps with 500 decent led, imo I think that's about where we at now.

No @Jackson9 you would need 4x TS600 to cover a 4'x4'.

 

Try the site sponsor HERE for lights suitable for your sized area.

The TS series LEDs are a bit hit and miss, especially with their tendency to overheat a bit, but Mars Hydro have really upped their game lately.

2 x (2x2) = 2 x 4 not 4 x 4

TS600

 

 

is only 100 watts, no way near what you need and the reason it's so cheap. i would save your pennies and go for a proper light from diyled

 

i've recently converted to led and have 2 x 300w lights, they are pretty damn good, but i'm looking to get a decent 450-600 watt one, costly, but they are very impressive

 

swerve the cheap lights mate

I noticed that myself about the pricing haha much better to get straight from the site. I did fancy buying the ts3000 but watched a video on youtube and i think its using more electricity than a 600w hps would
