The pictures say it all. :)

PS. I am using them myself. I actually have had the prototypes for 5+ weeks. Tested them out and LOVE THEM. Plants showed none of the ill effects that poor, weak LEDs can cause.
Also, my set ups are running allot cooler. And that is important this time of year!

Oh wow these look great! I'm assuming these are 6500k temp e27 base LED bulbs, then? Could we get lumens readings at different heights? Needless to say I'll remember this for when I finish my current viv.

Hi Andy,
I was told they were 680 lumens by the manufacturer.
I am not putting that out as "fact"... I am just tossing it out there because you asked.:)
Frankly, it seems weird and I am having a hard time wrapping my head around it.
Because it seems SO much brighter!
In the side by side picture below, I am using the bulb many hobbyists use for the comparison, the 27 Watt HomeDepot Ecosmart Daylight CFL.
Those are rated as 1750 lumens on the package.
And then there is my LED on the right.
The LED is directional*, so all of the light points down.
Maybe that is why it looks practically equal in light output?
I am not sure what to make of it. :cool:
Thank you for looking,
Todd
* Note: the metal body of the unit swivels!
No matter how it ends up pointing when its screwed it in, just turn the body of the unit. It rotates separate from the base so it always points down or the way you want.
That is a great feature I forgot to mention above.
PS. I am also offering a "Parallel Dual Socket Kit" so two of these LED Units can be run parallel out of one socket. Talk about bright!!!

Man these look nice.

I think you're right about why these lights appear much brighter. Its almost point source illumination. All of the lumens produced by these are comming from a much smaller area and are focused, compared to a CFL tube that emits light in all directions along the length of the spiral.

I'm really tempted to try one out. Do you know if a 10k version is expected anytime?

Hi Doug.
Not that I am aware of.
But the next time I communicate with my peeps, I can ask them.
On the chance they have some pre-made, I will see if I can grab a few. But that would be a month or two off.
In the meantime, you should try one of these.:D
They are very crisp white.
I am totally serious when I say that you must be 100% satisfied or your money back.
FYI... When I got the first sample in the mail 5 weeks ago...the thing that blew my mind when I first turned it on:
I was looking directly at it and *wow*, I saw spots for 5 min. afterward.:eek:
I was literally e-mailing China while my vision was still impaired to procure a quantity of them!
他们是优秀的。
Thank you for your interst.

Hey Todd

These have to be used horizontal correct? From the former pic it looked like it. I have domes on my main viv.....Any chance of spot light LED units coming in at a reasonable cost?

Hi Azurel,
Yes, these are for horizontal use.
They do have a spot configuration(s) with screw base....but they are not made with these exact same diodes.
That is a concern, because the diodes in these are nicest I have come across so far for our purposes and application.

I will see if I can get some samples of the spots to test and go from there.

Thank you.
Todd

How's the color on these? Most LED's I have seen give a very white, cold-looking light that is rather unattractive. If you listed a color temperature, I apologize, as I must have completely missed it lol.

6.5.
LEDs do, by nature, tend to be more "repressed" in the red bands of the spectrum.
These are the best looking ones I have come across so far.
It would be intersting to flash forward 5-10 years and see how LED technology has evolved.

Thank you for your interst.

No .. not yet.....
I gotta get 'em up. I know!:eek:
PS: I got exo hoods 12" thru 24" in stock in quantity...as well as zoo med 12 & 24 inch.... and side mount simple socket arrangements that can zip-tie to racks to put LED light units up easy for "area" LED lighting on rack set-ups. hint ;)

Thank you.

another great thing about this light is that is really and truely white light, the compact hd fluorescent look yellow in comparison to these.
Thank you, Julio!
Yes, they do have a nice even white color light.
I was pleased with the diodes they used in the making them.:D
