Has anyone used the
Mars TS1000 grow light? I’m thinking about buying one and I was curious about the heat it generates ?

I guess this depends on the space you’re putting it in? @Schrist1
2x2x48 grow tent… Any suggestions? I had a few others …
It shows as pulling 150 watts at the wall. So estimate it’s good for 3 square feet. Your tent is 4 sq ft, so that light would be adequate for 1-2 very small plants placed in the middle.
The pH probe that comes with it is fairly useless, but timers and hygrometers are always good.
If it were me, I’d go to horticulture lighting group and get the 135W QB V2 LED KIT
It’s a little more $$, but it’ll give better light, run cooler, take less headroom, and you’ll be happy later when you get a bigger tent.
If you’re in the least bit handy, you can build something very similar for around $150.
@Schrist1 @Drinkslinger covered you well, and I agree with what he’s suggesting. That light is more efficient, and that’s why it runs cooler. More lumens per wattage.
Agree for sure. I have HLG QB lights and they are awesome and efficient. Better choice as the other folks are telling you.
When I saw the video of the guy trying out a TS 1000 and practically burning his hand touching it, that was all I needed to convince me it runs pretty hot.
Great point !! Thank you for the advice and help…
Thank you for the advice and help!! Scott
i run the HLG QB 135w boards…
two for flower…
one over the moms, clones, and veg plants…
they seem to perform as good or better then HID’s…
Very nice!! Thank you for taking the time to share … Scott
If I had a 48"x24"x60" tent would you recommend 2 of these lights or just one?
Two of the HLG 135 in 3000K…or… one HLG 260 XL in 3000K
The xl is very nice… 35 inches long
a little fan blowing on top and it stays nice and cool for me and got a ts1000 and ts600 right next to each other
Welcome @416iXGROW this thread over a year old, but welcome to the forum, happy to have you!
Just pointing the age of the thread, in case you were expecting a response from the OP. Some don’t hang around that long.
