  1. I'm looking at two LED lights...
    One has 160 5w LEDs ( california light works solar storm 800w )
    and the other has 336 3w LEDs ( Hydro grow 336x PRO 500w )
    Which one would be better??
    ( 3x3 grow tent...3 plants....dwc bucket system )

  2. I now have two SolarFlare 200's because I like the 5 watt diode. Owned several Pro Grows previously. Am happy with Calif Light Works and run them 24/7. I think you would be quite happy with the SolarStorm.
  3. Thanks boss. I was leaning more towards the solar storm. 
    Just thinking though...wouldn't 336 3w be better than 160 5 w? 1008w > 800w
  4. get two solar storms then :D
  5. Pfff thats out of the question. The thing is though the solar storm had more watts at the wall. Thats more important correct?Sent from my SCH-I545 using Grasscity Forum mobile app
  6. growbigTV on youtube has led comparisons
  7. Check out my journal. Its in this same section. I've got two 400w solar storms. Sent from my Nexus 7 using Grasscity Forum mobile app
  8. The larger watt the diode, the better. More PAR. The 3w ones won't emit as much PAR as a 5w. The solarstorm is the best, albeit EXPENSIVE, LED on the market right now.
  9. I have a 6x2x5 1/2 for closet. .I have a 400watt hps light and three 135 watt led grow lights. Entire cloSet is Mylared. About how many phototype bagseed plants would you suggest I grow with this amount of space and light? ???.
