I bought a ufo style led grow light that has 72 3watt leds. Has anyone used one of these? Usage is supposed to be around 65 watts. I'm planning to test over an improved soakaponics system I'm going to build, and it'll be in a small grow tent, 2'x2'. I made a short unboxing video below.

I have seen them in action for green growing, yet to encounter one for peppers. 

 

This will be a good test to follow along  ;)  Congrats on the new light...i love new grow gear.

My friend has one similar to that. (He hilariously refers to it as "My OOF-Oh light" in his thick, German accent and I now hear that every time I see UFO written anywhere.) It should be perfect in a 2x2 grow tent. His is using 3w leds as well and puts out a good footprint at 18" from the top of canopy. The 65 watts sounds right, because he runs his 18 hours a day and hardly notices a bump in his electric bill. The available light really dims past 1.5-2 feet, but that won't be a problem in your planned space at all.

Thanks hogleg. I'm going to try a Helios Hab, assuming my seeds germinate ok. Just started them a few days ago. That'll be a good test plant I think, since they supposed to be early producing, and not a monster size plant like some can get.

I think it'll be a good test, can't wait to put it all together. If I can free up a camera, might do a time lapse too.
