LED expand lights are a few of one of the most complicated items of expand modern technology on the marketplace, and also made extra so by LED producers actively puzzling customers in their advertising products. Learn exactly how to absolutely examine a LED expand light’s efficiency for its cost variety in this video clip. We’ll cover some standard terms like the same level, PPF, PPFD, and also photon effectiveness. Then, we’ll enter into a couple of various false impressions: 1. LEDs are much better due to the fact that they utilize much less power. 2. Total possible electrical power vs. real diode capability made use of. 3. PPFD numbers are to be relied on from producers.

Any recommendations for grow light strips? Everything I find sucks
I have a 1000w grow light and I have guava seedlings 🌱 and I don’t know what color/ mode to use
It’s impossible to find a good website that sells them. 90% of the websites I’ve visited received dozens of reviews that they are scammers and never deliver.
10:00 why does it look like an old man with pattern hair loss and glasses is peaking over your shoulder
This is by far the most informative video and easy to absorb based on your simple yet very informative explanations. Looking forward to learning more.
I don’t understand why we care about the capacity of each diode. If I have a 100 diodes that are outputting a 100 Watts vs 20 nodes outputting 100 watts… The end is still a hundred Watts of light, regardless of how efficient each individual diode is operating at. It sounds like having a hundred diodes at 18% is better than 64 at 58%. To me that means that my hundred diode light will last significantly longer than the 64 diode.
Is this saying that the more power an individual diode consumes = better efficiency in producing usable light for plants? That just seems wrong.
If a light works ,it’s a,goid light stop trying to think you got to spend thousands of dollars,to get a grow light…ebay lights as, you call them are great lights …
Do you still use grow lights?
OMG Thank you!!! This video was SO helpful!!!
Why does he say “right?” after each point he makes? I thought he is giving correct information. So, why would he sound so uncertain, or why would I need to be convinced?
This has been the absolute best explanation of grow lights out there.. Ty so much for sharing your knowledge:)
Food I want big ole nuggets😁
Thankyou ! Great information and extremely well delivered . One thing i still don’t understand is how some manufacturers say that a light has “FULL SPECTRUM”. Presuming this refers to ‘visible spectrum’ of ~400nm – ~700nm, how does this relate to the colour temperature of the diodes being used? for example HLG use a 4000K (i think) diode in their diablo boards which could be referred to as medium in the visible K range . Would there be any benefit to having a row of each say 3500k 4000k 4500k – 7000K ?
I understand the nm is a measure the wavelength of light and K color but are they relative ? Or am i completely misunderstanding how this all works .
Need a new power cord the 3 prongs no it doesn’t have the regular plug it’s 3 straight lines instead of the normal 2 straight lines and the ball at the bottom anybody knows the correct name or where to go no Home Depot doesnt
