If you want to start playing with those Cree ones:

The color tone of those new ones are really nice and the added bonus is the accidental stand up comedy of the video.

actual CREE 3590 are great! and those look to be the right dimensions! These chips are also comparable @150lm/w https://cobkits.com/...058-1825-80cri/

Cree are kind of old, try looking into Citizen chips if you can find them, particularly the 50v ones.  https://cobkits.com/product/citi3618/

 

There are always something better in the next corner and it is better to build your own led growing light if you know how to build one with a fraction of the price.

 

You could make some serious money by building these led growing lights and selling them after they are deemed to be safe for commercial use.

Those newer type of leds are pretty interesting and i would like to see the growing results, so maybe someone would like to test them out.

I bought this last year on Aliexpress on sale for 250, light is really bright. I have it 1m away from a plumeria and almost 2 meters away from some orchids that tolerate high light. The light is bright. Currently will be testing on a bunch of pepper seedlings as they sprout.

 

Also check out Horticultural Lighting group:

Two of these boards is extremely bright and these led chips from samsung are are the most efficient white LEDs on the market. You can buy larger ones but these boards are quite pricey.

Very good useful info. I have my 180w cob led spider growing light 50cm above the small chilis and it really seems that they just love it.

This HLG 65 veg light seems to be the bee's knees compared to a lot of regular light systems, that uses many times the wattage to give the same growing results.

Then it means, that it is the good stuff!

 

Look at that power draw difference:

 

66w vs 184w for the same end result. You could almost pair three of those HLG 65 veg lights for the same power draw.

thats awesome when compared to CFL! from what I've read you need about 50-60 watts of CFL per square foot.

This is the future right now with led growing lights, it is time to get rid of your old crappy ineffective light systems with huge power draw.

I just made this thing with led strips, I want to build one with either the hlg or folux boards at some point.

I'm pretty sure it's running at 77ish watts. I have dimmers coming for all the different colors on the rgb+cw strips and the cool white and warm white strips. Should be able to adjust the spectrum, but idk much about that. Figured if it doesn't grow peppers then my wife can have it for taking pictures, or I will replace the t8 on my ceiling with it.

And yet we're still seeing people do "reviews" for crappy inefficient blurple lights so they can get free stuff on amazon on this forum and elsewhere. Those lights are cheaply made and aren't giving you the efficiency and quality of light that these high CRI white spectrums can give you. The premise that you need a bloom or grow spectrum and the premise that plants cant use green light are proven to be false and based on improper interpretations of old scientific papers. Plants can use green light and they can be vegged and flower under a single spectrum of white light. Paying an extra $100 will get you something many, many times more effective than a mars hydro or any other blurple light people are still getting conned into buying.

Is that a brand name? Cause no the white ones are called "lighting ever" and the rgbw strips are called "super night" but it's a sticker added on the box like they probably call them all kinds of stuff, or change the name after bad reviews. The red and green solder points were mixed up, luckily I tested them before I wired it all up.

I have the warm white and cool white(even the ones on the rgbw strips) wired to dimmers. The rgb dimmer is supposed to be here within 2.5 hrs lol
