    Just seeing if anyone has the electric sky led lights and if they are as good as they claim. 700 dollars for one is alot to spend on one light. So im looking into what ppl think before i buy.

    Build your own from a kit eh? Not rocket science. You're paying for someone else's labor.

    You will get 3 or 4 different answers today followed by arguments and name calling and then eventually a brawl will break out.

    Wait for the guy who actually knows the light to answer. GL :blsmoke:

    I believe in LED . I also believe in doing my own labor on anything from my truck r bike to making light. These kits are in my bookmarks for winter here.

    I’ve built most of mine as I do with everything I do. But sometimes paying the little extra to have PnP is worth it too. Keeps unneeded projects off my plate lol.

    Ive built six 2x4 lights now . And love them

    Gen 2 eb strips. Just follow their instructions its easy. I have 0 prior experience in electrical. Seriously .

    Per 240w light it cost about 340 after shipping and taxes

    Sorry 2x4 light,

    i editied it from 4x4 lol
    240w/16sq ft =15w/sq ft
    240w/8 =30

    And really anywhere from 30-50w/sq ft is ideal depending on how much cieling hieght you have available

    I can dig it but I'm a doer . Machinist , welder, nurse. Probably to the point of OCD about it. Physical pain and mental anguish paying for labor that's often inferior . Kudos to those buying or I'd have nobody to sell to though.

    Young guy around the corner asked me if I thought side lighting helped cannabis. Depends on setting and lights used I said.

    "I'm building a big box in my cabin. I'm thinking of putting LED I build on the top and all sides. Would that work?"

    Oh hell yes with the right ventilation. In Alaska cooling in most of the year is fairly easy.

    USMC here. Our creed - "Use it up. Wear it out. Make it do."

    Set up enough bivouac areas and see a village happen overnight and lots becomes possible .

    Yeah thers a limit tho. Unless you have perfect conditions and co2 theres no need of a retarded amount of light. Sorry i know you didnt specify how many watts but yeah, its alot of setup for something thats not going to bea huge difference.

    Id rather focus on training a canopy rather than running lights and wires along side my plants.. fire hazard.

    He's talking spreading out lower wattage kits so they're not in Vegas or overlit. Instead of 2' X 2' he's talking spreading them for more coverage.
