After picking up the Mars Hydro TSL-2000 my grows were really nice, but the buds just seemed a little more airy than when I used the burple lights. So I did some counting on the number of red leds in the Mars and went well that is a low ratio. So i went looking for flower booster boards and found only a few speciality items that I didn’t really want to put the money out on just yet, then I looked at Amazon.
It arrived as expected, a blank cardboard box with no outside markings. Open the box and a big envelope contains mounting kit that i did not use and a power cord with manual switch on it, which I also did not use. My only complaint on this light so far is the cheap feeling power supply. I have ordered a couple ul listed drivers but will need a few weeks to install. The driver on the board looks decent, but feels hotter to the touch than I like.
How about a few pictures right?
Front of the board is clean no need to make any mounting holes, plenty of options already in place.
The driver, the only piece I dont care too much for, but is working just fine.
I’ve hung at an angle to hit all the plants.
It actually does a decent job of spreading the light, still I’m gonna more power it and put another on other side to balance things out and move my fan a bit.
Then whats the real power use right?
After about 10 minutes the power stabilized at .930 amps max was .955. For 107.5 watts and 114.5 watts at startup.
We have 3 girls getting some of this light. A strawberry kush 15 weeks just about done on the left, blueberry cbd also 15 weeks from seed today on the right. Then the new girl in the middle i call Purple&Gold is 7 weeks from seed. This new girl is lopsided already it looks like after 1 day under the light.
