They make an excellent budget led. But ignore the 300, it pulls ~135w at the wall.

so for a 1.5mx1.5m tent, 4-5 of these would do pretty well. But if you're not planning on using the entirety of the space, toss 1 light over each plant, they'll cover about a 1.5'x1.5' space pretty well, up to about a 2'x2' space each.

Should be 300+BTU/hr direct heat created per light. Directly under canopy, Maybe a couple degrees higher than ambient.
