I’m looking for a second cheaper led to add to my 2000,watt led. Actual power draw is almost 500 watts but want to go from 3.5×3.5 to about double that. Don’t want to spend more than $300
Is the 500w, what the manufacturer is saying or are you using wattage meter at outlet. Also, is $300 the absolute most you can go on light.
For about $50 more you can get 260W QB V2 RSPEC LED KIT from HLG. They are rated for 3x3 for flower, but you can cheat a little.
I have a few HLG LED lights and they perform! Great lights that will last a while.
