    Iv not had a lumen meter under one but I heard at 3-6 month they start to drop lumens. so I'm just airing on the side of caution at 3 months. I'm hoping someone's tried with a lumen meter and could help out

    In general terms, led lights supposedly run in the neighborhood of 40,000 to 50,000 hours. I have only used led grow lights, but never had one longer than about 2 years. Such is the life of "Light Whore".
