Default Opinions about this light

I am helping a friend get set up. Before I could advise him, he went out and bought 4 of these....

https://a89b8e4143ca50438f09-7c1706b...pdf?1498670938

Somehow, I'm sure this is the wrong light to se but I can't find a real good reason why. LOL

4000k it should be good for overall but.... like I said, something doesn't smell right. LOL

Thanks

Is natural white the spectrum needed when growing with LEDs?

He said he had a spectrum chart on it but I couldn't find one.

I don't know much about LEDs, but all the ones I have seen have a wide light spectrum. These really do look to be work lights.

OK, Duck was closest but you all hit on it. It's the Kelvin.

Veg is best done at blue 5000+. Flowering is best at Red 2000 to 3000.

His work light is 4000 white.

As Maxwell Smart used to say...... Missed it by That much. LOL

OK,now I can explain it to him.

Thanks

I use these little bulbs that I get from Home Depot. A 4 pack is about $15 and currently I have 8 of them in my small veg space. They are 5000k and put out about 1575 lumens each. Also sold there for flowering are some 2700k so I usually sub a couple of them for flowering. I just finished adding another space for that. These bulbs are each 14.5 watts so just add whatever you need. If I had a grow room instead of just a grow box, I'd probably opt for something a little more robust but these are serving well so far.
