Mars is crap, mats was a sponsor on The Farm some time ago.
They were so bad they were let go because of the garbage they sell and customer service response.
All THC Farmers should have a fire extinguisher or fire suppression device where they grow regardless of cost.
If you burn your house up and they determine it was caused from illegal activities kiss it good by, cause you ain’t getting anything!
Hey, thanks for that link diesel. Ordering some auto fire extinguishers next week for sure!!!

If you can afford a clean room fire extinguisher system I highly recommend it.
It will save a lot of clean up over a powder system.https://automaticfireok.com/Products/Clean-Agent-Fire-Suppression.aspx

Its definitely something i will be saving for in the near future. Going to get myself some powder ones for now so i can get up and running again. My wife doesnt even want the tents on right now with what has happened the past couple months, i can't be mad at her though.

I’ve researched lights a bunch over the last few months, and all the bad reviews I’ve read regarding this series of lights stems to the issue you experienced. The solder points and the lack of protective water proof coating is a huge safety issue. I’m glad you, your family and your home are safe!! I’m sorry you’re getting such shitty service from them and thanks for the heads up and confirming the quality of their TSW series.

Dude I feel for you. I have had a run in with Mars as well. I would never buy a MARS product ever again. They are like the scum of the world, they pre on home growers and there products are just knock offs. About the only ones worse are Vivo Sun and Bestva. Funny how someone that has there stuff will defend to the end.

I run multiple Mars FC 4800s and are by far the best lights I've ever owned. A FIVE year warranty they came with so your blanket statements don't necessarily ring true.
I have a Mars Hydro FC-E 3000 300W LED and it is absolutely amazing, producing great results. Sorry you are having a bad time, hope you getbit sorted.

Since I bought them new over 6 months ago I have been super impressed with them. You say it's funny to you that I speak highly of them or as you say defend them?
Should I instead bash them because of others supposed bad experiences with Mars? Now that would be funny!

Mars has been banned from The Farm for absolutely poor customer service, poor equipment warranties and many reports of light failures. This thread was started to warn Farmers that this authors light has caused a fire danger to his home.
We are not seeing supposed bad experience in this thread!
The proof is in his experience and others experiences with mars lights.
We will not advertise dangerous and inferior mars equipment on The Farm!
That is why mars has been banned from advertising on The Farm and will not be allowed back ever again.
Enjoy your light hopefully it will not burn down your house like the unfortunate individuals that have had documented incidents in the past.
Good day:)

Maybe it depends where you buy it. I bought mine from marshydro.eu maybe they have lower safety requirements in the us/Canada? Be interesting to find out although I doubt they would publicise it if they did lol. Anyway, much love to you all as always, peace ✌

I can clearly see who is a major sponsor of the Farm, a direct competitor of Mars.

No documented issues from your sponsors equipment?

How many issues were due to the customer?

As far as customer service, I cannot comment as I have not dealt with them.

I have no alliance with any company and base my opinions on my own experience.

Honestly, is this about serious growing or sponsor dollars?

It's about keeping a community safe.
It's about finding solutions to problems.

I would hope anyone would share any experience with faulty equipment; user error or otherwise. We can draw our own assessment.

We know everyone's mileage may vary when it comes to equipment, but if there's even a slight chance of it posing a risk to anyone, why fight it?

I won't fight it anymore!

4 Mars FC 4800s going in garbage today!

How long after I start bashing Mars on here will my 4 free replacements arrive from the sponsor who's lights are guaranteed to never burn my house down?
