First you did a test with both lights on.
No, sorry I didn't explain well. I did the test with one light on at a time. But my comment was meant to mean that when I turn both lights on it adds about 5 - 8,000 lux to the measurements that I listed. But the measurements listed are with one light on not both.

And yes I agree the lux meter on a phone is not a great test of the light grow quality. The proof I have for that is my big chunky thick hard bud in the photo lol. Anyhow, agreed, this was not a great test, but it does prove that these sub $100 lights can produce and if you don't have or don't want to buy super expensive lights you don't have to.

Ah, makes more sense to me now...:dizzy:
Yes, either way I think there is value in these lights.

Well, I don't know how they pull this stunt off.
But the pictures speak for themselves.
2 tools used : Elcheapo Hydrofarm PAR meter (??$$..on Amazon???)...
and, the Korona software on an IPAD MINI 2 (IOS12.5).
About 20 inches below my MH TS1000 (150w )

I have to admit to being stumpped.
Either both are full of shit and a real coincidence, they're close.

Or this software is really impressive.
I was willing to pay the $6.99 just out of curiousity.
I paid for the LED software unlock only.

That's a good price. About $70 cheaper than Amazon.ca and what I paid.

I just got ts1000 for £79.10 win bid..seen a cokolila l000w on Amazon for £68 3×3 flowering!!!
I've seen that Cokolila too had my eye on that. Be nice to find some real time testing seems too good to be true and you know what they say.

Seen a phlizon 1500w for £130 too. Can't decide if to go mars hydro or try a budget first
