I am getting all my supplies together to start my first grow tent and I am agonizing over lighting. I have decided I want to do 600w mh/hps air cooled reflector. But I am stuck on what brand to get. So many contradicting reviews. I have the ipower air cooled reflector ballast kit in my amazon cart but it also has a lot of differing reviews. Any advice on best brands for the ballast and air cooled reflectors would be greatly appreciated!!
Whereabouts in the world are you. It will help folks guide you and let you know what’s available in your region
Oh I didnt even think about that lol I am in the US
No worries, I’m in the uk, @dbrn32 is really knowledgeable on the lighting front so should be able to help.
@KalleAnka. I’ve got 2 Nanolux 600’s running for ballasts.
So far no issues after a few grows on them.
( Bought them used but like new ).
Also have 2 8 in vented xxxl dominator sun system hoods.
Love them for the light foot print. 4 ft by 5 ft.
Just a caution as they are heavy. 40 lbs so you’ll need something to solidly mount them safely.
I’ve never used the ipower, but I think @latewood has.
The larger hood like Oldguy posted is great for getting a little more balanced intensity .
Anyone have thoughts on this kit?
Your link isn’t working @KalleAnka which could be why there has been no response yet
Oh! I didn’t realize! It’s just as well, I changed my mind and went with LEDs lol less heat
LEDs are the way forward. I love my HLG’s
