Is this lamp ok to use for my indoor flowers or should i buy a new One. I had this one already. I dont know what its been used to before.
while you're at it here I have this light I bought cheap..$10..would it be any use as a side light in veg or flower...?They're probably fine for early veg. not really ideal but they'd work for young plants. I'd remove the glass cover from them to expose the diodes though.
You don't want any solder on the LED surface itself where it emits light. However, the LED in and of itself is not a fire hazard. If they are over-driven hard enough, they will burn out (not combust). With that said, just about anything electrical has a potential to be a fire hazard if it's wired incorrectly or mishandled ...Hey! No experience with building lights myself, but I am curious about the soldering i see some places there. There seems to be a little soldering smooched very close to the chips (or the lines surrounding them)
Will this disturb the lead efficiency?
Could it be a potential fire-hazard?
