Good evening AFN! Welcome to my Kind Led K5 XL1000 Test Grow Thread! I have recently been told by @Son of Hobbes that I have been given the most expensive led to test on site EVER. I am very aware of how important this test is for me to represent what we do here to the best of my ability. I feel that I am capable and will do AFN justice as well as give this light some proper test grow(s). I say this in the plural sense because I/we feel that because this light is if not the most expensive, or close to the most expensive, led you can buy out there, that simply one or two test grows will not do. My goal is to provide FAIR, UN BIASED, grow(s) and final review.

Here's the link from their site... https://www.kindledgrowlights.com/collections/k5-series/products/k5-xl1000

My plans are to run this light in AUTO Mode the first grow. The second grow I will dial it into the settings they recommend for each of the 3 Spectra Bands for the different stages of growth. Seedlings, Veg, Flower, and Late Flower. I will elaborate when we get to that point. For now here's the un-boxing pictures.

I was going to do a video then for my own safety (as you will see my privacy has already been violated, IMO) I decided on pictures. First set will be how the box arrived, the label, opening, and contents other than the led. Second set in a separate post will be of the led itself coming out of the box.

This is the condition of the box as it arrived from FedEx

As I mentioned above... I did NOT appreciate AFN being under my name and above my address as if I own this site. Or that AFN exists at my home... It was also placed on the little square stickers they place on the box as well. This was a violation of my privacy IMO. Whether I live in a legal state or not, which I don't, I wasn't happy with this at all.



And inside the box we go...

Despite FedEx knocking it around it was packaged very well! Now coming up the LED itself...

Nice!! Can't wait to see it doing what it does :drool:
Can't wait to see what your K3 L600 does!!

OK so SLIGHT change of plans... I was messing with the auto mode and one thing that is wacky is if you hit the auto mode while in auto mode it goes out of it and into manual and it won't go back into auto mode until it completes its 18/6 cycle... SO I went ahead and dialed the 3 Spectra bands to seedling settings...

A/B/C Red/Blue/White

I have it on 15/30/30

This is percentage out of 100% Intensity. I'm going to go by their recommended schedule for this run. That will give me time to research other schedules and such. Here's some shots of the manual's section on tuning...
