It's 13 weeks flower for the LED test, still no ambers (have not checked today) but I will give them longer time.
Cut the light hours back to 10/14 a few days ago, and they are starting to yellow up a bit. The BLB is still very green, the Tohici99's are fading better/faster.
Now it's been a while since I have been posting anything about the Veg closet, and the hacked china LED's.
And from the count of dead chips, in the 1400 mA light, compared to the 700 mA light. Id say 1400 mA's is a bit too much, for these cheap dualrow strips at least on the heatsinks used.
Non the less, the 1400 mA light have done 13 weeks so far and some of the strips are fine. A bigger heatsink, and better solderings might been the key to make it last longer.
For veg the 700 mA light is doing a nice job, it creates a dence even canopy and no heat to speak of.
If you on a budget and like to do DIY stuff, this is a cheap short term solution that works.
For the clone section, I am still just running 14.5 Watt china LED.
And here we go:
