Tasty LED Closeout and etc.

    After a lot of though I have decided to shut Tasty LED down. I was going to announce it tomorrow giving those on my mailing list first dibs but the cat was out of the bag rather quickly. No big deal though and I do appreciate the heads up being posted here at RIU rather than somewhere else.

    I'd like to thank my customers for supporting this project. Sales dropped off in '17 but ultimately I just don't get the same satisfaction building lamps as I used to, so on to other things. In addition to giving me the opportunity to do something I liked and make a few bucks at it I've also appreciated the comments of various customers, "built like a tank" and "bright as fuck" being the most common. :)

    All the lamps are gone but the sale will go on until Dec 31st. There are still plenty of pin fin sinks, Meanwell drivers and Vero 29s. Everything is basically half price,

    Vero29C $15 each
    Vero29B $11 each
    150mm sinks $10 each
    133mm sinks $6 each
    Meanwell drivers HLG 80H - 320H and LPF-90Ds for $17-45 each.

    The sinks are tapped for Vero29 but for the money it could be worthwhile to drill and tap them for smaller emitters.

    Note to those who placed orders yesterday, I have a ton of orders to ship. Please be patient and I will get the tracking numbers out in the next day or two.

    Note to customers who placed orders prior to yesterday (failed to mention in newsletter), [email protected] will remain active and I'll be glad to address warranty issues until they expire. I've had a total of 4 warranty claims over the last 2 years, one of which was natural cause which I chose to honor anyway, so I suspect there will continue to be very few issues with the lamps.

    How much is shipping to EU for 10 heatsinks?

    Shit @Rahz , I always liked your ethos and enjoyed reading your factual posts.
    Sorry to hear your business has dropped off but wish you all the best for the future. I'm sure it will be bright (just like your lights)

    Rahz Well-Known Member Rollitup Advertiser

    I've never offered shipping to Europe because the shipping charge is crazy high. You will be better off finding a deal locally even if part cost is higher. I'm not sure about the US based DIY suppliers but Kingbrite and Cutter will probably have more reasonable shipping rates. Also worth checking, Renxin-Seiko at Alibaba may be able to offer reasonable shipping on small orders.

    Sorry to hear that you're closing shop mate. Tasty LED are excellent lights with excellent reputation.

    Wish you all the best in your future ventures, and I hope you will keep on posting valuable stuff on this forum for all of us to learn from :)

    Sorry to hear that Rahz. I always thought you handled your business very well from the standpoint of how you deal with questions and just deal with people in general. Good luck in your next venture!

    Rahz Well-Known Member Rollitup Advertiser

    It worked out pretty good. I had fun, made some money and have helped some peeps grow our favorite plant efficiently with proper light intensity. Thank you for the order. :)

    KonopCh Well-Known Member

    Ah, too bad. Yes, shipping and importing taxes are killing us in EU. Thanks anyway!

    @Rahz I always respected how you conducted business as well as your kind and helpful demeanor. I have never run across a person who had anything but good things to say about you and Tasty. Best of luck in the future.

    I see that! 1680w if you run them at 1050ma. Those sinks can handle more but I like the temps better at 1050.

    thanks for the tip. Im likely going to run 8 chips per hood at 1400ma active cooled. I already run 720w hoods with cxm-22s so I want them to kinda match wattage. Are they super inefficient or anything at that range? From what I can tell they are still quite good. Im no led guru though

    Rahz Well-Known Member Rollitup Advertiser

    They will output about 94 watts at 1400ma, 47-48% efficient so 44-45 par watts each. Around 18 par watts per square foot is going to be in the 1000 PPFD area so you could light about 60 square feet at 1000 PPFD using 24 at 1400ma.
