That light should use about what the specs show, 170 - 200 watts. There are some growers here using the light one size bigger than the one you linked to.

It all depends on the size of your grow space. I have two one size bigger that that one. So far it works well, but i am glad i got two for my space. I like the lights. There is a learning curve with led and i am just starting it...so no expert here.

will it use more power/watts than advertised? im not looking to "light up" more than two "potatos"


decent buy?
You should step it up to the 144x3 for two potato's just because you want to have at least that much wattage overall minimum, and it's going to increase your total footprint. The equivalent would be of about a 500watt HPS if one could purchase that.

Just note that you will want to grow 2 to 3 foot potato's done rather than the huge type that take several months to veg.

Hope that helps

The more common practice is to not have that info in the specs. That way if there is someone out there who can afford to spend the 2k to get a cheap LED light tester they can't be busted on giving out bad info.

The flip side is many of these so called LED companies can't afford one either.
HAHA

Do a web search for Colorado's finest top led grow on youtube and you can see a 5 x5 scrog using one of these lights. An update was just posted the other day.

i started I leds in that wattage range, and they work good they need to be close to the plants for the plant to respond good to that amount of power now after I learned that i would recommend one with more watts so the lights can be lifted further away and plants are still getting enough light to be health i think would be the word.

have you looked at the newer models of lights same web site.
