New grower Lighting
@mcj27 this is an annoying situation. Firstly, Mars doesn’t make bad lights. They make nice entry-level lights. They aren’t the best, but they aren’t the most expensive either.
What all the import manufacturers do is the build a light with X amount of LED chips (say 100 for this example). They look at the maximum wattage those chips are rated for, and multiply that by the number of chips. Usually 5 watts will be the maximum rated wattage. They multiply the maximum wattage by the number of chips to get 500 watts. In actuality, they will put .5 watts to each chip, because if they put the maximum wattage to them they would burn out very quickly.
Mars is in a tough spot because they’re competing with other import manufacturers who lie through their teeth about light performance ($80 lights that cover 10’x10’ canopies), but they don’t really make a premium product either.
Truth is you have to spend a fair bit of money to get good LED lights; although, watch out because there are plenty of companies that will take a hefty sum for bad lights too.
Well said man, couldn't agree more
For a budget light, I think the MARS TS range is great, one thing I have respect for MARS over other cheapos is they dont usually tell lies about their specs...vast majority of the others do 🙁
Toying with the idea of extra power for my photo ⛺ don't want much extra and I keep being drawn to the viperspetra P1000 , 115 w at the plug but it's the umol reading (please see migro for tech light talk he also has a video on this very light ) 1.98 Is a banging number , works out £1 a watt !! This is mid range when the numbers get better in time omg !! I would buy that for a dollar , my Mars hydro Tsw 2000 , 16 month old is till banging out dank
