Any info on DIY induction Lamps

    Induction lights look like the wave of the future. Problem is I cannot find much info on them. I know I read some threads here on them. I was just wondering how I could build these myself and save significant cash over buying pre made fixtures.

    yeah, I read one thread that had links to buy a ballasts and lamp combo for under $100, Let me see if I can find it.

    I found those threads. But I am not that technical
    I was wondering if there is a DIY on building a whole fixture

    I want to build a fixture with like 3 of those in it

    Notice they dont have a price?
    Seems typical of most of the sites I have visited

    I think one of those disposable Aluminum turkey basting trays you find at the grocery store could be used as a reflector in a pinch. :eyesmoke:

    I agree with you, the bulbs and ballasts seem cheap enough, but add a hood and prices get out of hand quickly.

    I found a company "Riant lighting" making and selling 400w square induction grow lights 3500K

    I emailed there sales rep an asked about prices and about shit when he said "350$ + about 100$ for shipping" As a full light ballest an reflector set up, not a kit!
    That's half the price of the competion!!
    And I think if you buy just a bulb and ballest kit an DIY, it's -100 for no reflector.


    I think I'm going to try one!!
    Those guys need to get a big hydro shop in board.
    If there product is good , and with their low prices they would fly off the shelfs an they could corner the induction market.

    My second choice is a 300$ ,300w square induction grow bulb an ballest kit from here.
    But I would have to mount it In a reflector an attach a 110v power cord. (No biggie)

    I dont work for any light company just searching for the best deal on induction.
    Most folks would prefer induction if the price wasn't so high.
    And dropping 800$ + shipping to IndaGro to experiment with a new light design is risky.
    Wish one of the big Hydro stores would carry cheeper induction light options.

    im going to email a few hydro stores this letter.

    one simple way, search induction grow light on google, you will find lots of choices.

    remember let us know how induction grow light performs if you get samples.
