Hello, I am thinking of buying 2 of these for my 4' x 4' tent. Does anyone have any feedback they can give me on these? Though I realize maybe no one is using these, but some guidance on the wattage and how many to get for my tent...etc.

I saw lemons on the counter and fruit on the nasa like videos but all I saw in real life were leafy greens so no, I believe you can do much better.

"Feit Electric's 2 ft. Quad LED Hydroponic Grow Light with aluminum back plate uses 60-Watt "
edit: seems I been here before ok well that's what I think.

Also starting this young beauty into 12/12 cycle. If you don’t got a lot of money to start, these cheap L.E.D. Lights can get you going until you save enough to get something of better quality.

I went on eBay and got a box of daylight spectrum 100w LED floodlights. I'm using 8 of them to light 4 plants with about 6'x5' canopy space.
Clones were 6" tall when I got them.
I'm 4 weeks into 12/12 after vegging for only 2 weeks.
Oh, the box of 10 lights was $175.

Probably dont need to chime in. But I will anyways 🤣

Those lights are not new, they've been around for years.

It will grow some bud. But it wont grow much. At 60w you would have to keep your light almost on top of your plant. Within a few inches. Making your footprint very small. Also the penetration from such a light would be almost non existent.

For $100 I would rather go with an x5 cob:

Full Spectrum LED Grow Light 1500W Sunshine COB LED Grow Light, X5 COB LED Plant Light for Growing Vegetables,Flowers,with ON/Off Switch HollandStar (X5-1500W-White) https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B07TH7D3YH/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_GaToEbTE84KVM

I've had good results from these:

But if you're really in to new leds, for $140 you can get a kingbrite 240w quantum board with lm301 chips.
Quantum boards are quickly becoming the standard for led fixtures. And with the new lm301 chips from samsung, they are tough to top.

Lol wow a lot of light specialists in here. Man I wouldn't use 61 watts of anything to grow anything. But the quality of those lights are far better than some of the shitty Amazon lights they guys are recommending. Anything that says china on it stay far far away from. I have 350 watts of feit electric in my grow space and 350 watts of shitty Chinese lights. Feits cost 600 the Chinese cost me 259. Guess where my plants chase after.... Lol the clean feit light by far is the reason for my success. So no to 69 watts but yes to feit electric
