I would like test out one of #philzon light fixtures in Canada.

Most all have crap to say about the China items , but if it works I guess the proof would be in the pudding.

2592 diodes could shine brightly in my 5x5.

Enjoy and good luck.

When a light is advertised as 640W, it doesn't always mean 640W input. It could refer to output, which would make the input something else. Which would make the Amps something other than expected.

I'll assume more than 5amps and less than 7amps while the manufacturer remains silent.

Someone could probably tell me if the light source ships in a plain cardboard box or if it has text and branding on the box.

That is in error.

The wattage on the lable is watts drawn through the plug (federal regulations)... and there is no way to increase wattage via electronics... you can only lose power.

What will change amps is volts.

120 volts & 110 volts are the current U.S. standards (240v elsewhere). 110v will draw a bit more amps to provide 640 watts.

You think you are saying something really smart here, but you aren't being helpful at all. I didn't say it would increase wattage via electronics. The output can be lower than the input. So if the output is 640W the input and corresponding amperage is higher than anticpated by assumption.

All I wanted was a clear answer from the manufacturer because that makes it official. I don't need to hear about basic electronic equations that I'm already familiar with.

I've shopped for enough lights to know the actual real world specs don't always match how it's marketed. For example, some lights have been marketed as 1000W lights, but draw less power. Just the other day, I saw something marketed as 640W that pulled 680 actual watts according to manufacturer. And so on.

Yeah mine was spose to b 600 but infact it as drawing 625w..i see what you mean.
It is a simple question you have asked.

The label is not listing output, it is input.

If the label is fradulent, report it to the manufacturer... and if they don't correct it, report it to state organ that stops fraud like that.

But I suspect these strawman are grid related power flux and startup power surges. i.e. a 1k watt air conditioner can have a 3k watt surge before it settles to a 1k draw.

If you're stressing a few amps... you need a 2nd circuit, or you should upgrade the circuit you're pluging into... Are you tripping the breaker very often Mr. Pro?

Look, I'm concerned you're creating a fire hazard for yourself.

How overloaded is your circuit?
Can you run an extension cord from another circuit and plug a power strip into it?

Don't know what you said but it sounded important.

I'll give another example of how the LED story doesn't always match the headline and why I want to be sure.

I bought something advertised as a 200W LED. When I received it, I found out it was only a 200W LED on some obscure voltage like 277V and it was 180W on regular 120V. Trying to avoid something that and other surprises.

Thanks for your concern tho!

My initial assumption was it's probably 5.33 amps input current at 120V. I don't like to assume before spending the monies!

Every circuit has a listed amount of amps that it can handle. Amps cause heat, melt wires and start fires if too high. Typical circuits are 15a, 30a, etc.. all household outlets are on 15a circuits.

Breakers are used to break the circuit before amps get too high for the wire to handel.

Most know this. What they don't know is that a 15a circuit can actually handle ~20a before the breaker trips. This is a surge buffer, and exists to prevent a breaker from tripping if some device has a 'startup surge' or other surges happen (like, if you're using a drill... and the bit gets hungup, this draws more amps than the tool lists).

It is possible to keep pluging stuff into a 15a circuit to the point that all your equipment is drawing 19a, non-stop, without breaking the circuit. This can and does cause wires to eventually melt and can start fires.

I hear you.. I don't shop for off brand products due to that. Cheap shit is cheap shit.
