    Well, I think it's time to let my thread in the LED section die off as the comparison between the lights is over. After testing many lights over the last year and a half, and due to needing to use the least amount of electricity possible at this location have settled on the AutoCob's Single engine units from Cobshop.net. I have 8 on hand currently and will be adding more soon. I'm running two 3x3 tents right now with 4 COB's in each. The info on these is here:

    https://cobshop.net/shop?olsPage=products/autocob-55

    All of my current COB's are using 1812 chips in the 3500K flavor and I am enjoying my results. I will soon be running the 4x8 with 12 total 1812 3500K COB's, 6 on each side over a 4x4 tray. I will be using the current 8 on hand as part of those twelve. What I then plan to do with my 3x3's is set one up for veg with (5) 6500K COB's, and the other with (5) 3000K COB's for flower. I am going to try my hand at a SCROG with one or two larger plants on a screen and see how it goes. This keeps my meds producing constantly with my auto's and let's me fool with the photo's and breeding etc on a smaller scale and requires taking less cuts and keeping less mothers on hand etc. It's just what I feel will work best. This will not happen overnight but I am starting to prep for it already. I took down my hoods and ballast in the 4x8 and will be soon clearing out the pots in there and cleaning the floor and the walls etc very well. I already re routed the exhaust for the filter it just needs pots out and a good cleaning and it's ready for COB's and plants.

    I currently have 6 Auto's going in one 3x3, 3- Deep Blue C, and 3- Skywalker both from Mephisto genetics. I have settled on them for my auto genetics very happy with their gear. Here's a shot of that tent:

    In my other 3x3 I am currently vegging some photo's and waiting on them to sex. I have the following in here: 3- Dark Plasma from Ocean Grown Seeds, 3- nightmare Kush which is my second cross, and one Fookies from some beans gifted to me by a fellow grower. They are a little pale as I got over zealous with the lights too close and stressed them when they were already stressed from wanting a transplant. Hasn't even been a week since transplant they will be fine:

    Here's a shot of some of the buds in the auto tent:

    Subbed :) Looking great in there, nice clean up, some stash for the jars :)

    I grabbed some single COB fixtures to replace my aging blurple panels and loving them. I can move them around as-needed between spaces, mix spectrums, very easy to hang/manage them and love the flexibility.

    Everything you just said is what pushed me to them over the board type lights. I can't wait to get the rest of this cleaned up and setup I had let things slide and get too dirty and was not on top of my ipm due to health being very shitty last few weeks. Almost back to where I need to be and want to be with my grow.
