I used this light once and my friend used it once, both to astonishing results. I have since given up this hobby, hence the sale. This light was custom-made for me by Vipar Ltd in late 2014, which later became Viparspectra Ltd. I asked for the LED build to focus mainly on red spectrums for flowering, and Vipar did not disappoint. Each LED has an individual lens, and is housed inside a reflector.
This light can be used for both vegging and flowering cycles, as it covers all the necessary spectrums for plant growth. I've never seen a light this powerful for flowering, short of a heat-factory 1000w HPS. The build quality is outstanding. The three huge onboard fans were also included at my request and they really do keep the whole unit lovely and cool.Even during an 18 hour run period this light won't increase the temperature more than a couple of degrees. Dimensions 56 x 32 x 8cm, weight 6.3 kg (about 14lbs). I have fitted chains into the mounting loops and they hold the light very securely. You can use mounting straps if they're mountaineering standard, but I recommend hanging with chains. Although ViparSpectra calls it a 900w light, the wall draw is actually an interesting 420 watts... I've tested it first hand, side by side alongside a 600w HPS, and this LED beauty knocked my previous favourite 600w HPS out of the park. The end result was a 50+% increase in yield by comparison, so I can comfortably say this light sits in the middle between a 600w and 1000w HPS running a digital ballast... Not to mention the power savings. A good friend of mine who exclusively used 600w HPS lights for years borrowed this light from me last year... And I almost had to fight him to get it back.
He offered me quite a lot more than I had paid for it, and in hindsight I probably should have accepted his offer because I didn't use it again. Good to know I helped play a part in his conversion to LEDs, and saved him a small fortune in blown fuses.
Suffice to say this light is perfectly suited to 3-4 simultaneous units in a 4x4 area, with very impressive results. Total usage was less than 2000 hours overall or under 4% of the indicated LED lifespan. So that's 46,000+ hours to go!
If you are up to the damn near impossible challenge of wearing this monster out, treat it with respect like I have always have and it will probably outlive you. It goes without saying that you should never turn this light on without appropriate eye protection. If you have seen high-end Vipars running before then you will be aware that this light easily has the potential to cause irreversible damage to your eyes if you look directly at the LEDs during operation.Even reflecting off a dark surface it's damn near unbearable to the naked eye from ten feet away. I won't say this again or take any responsibility for any injury caused, so consider this your first and only warning.... ## DO NOT LOOK DIRECTLY AT THIS LIGHT WHILE IT IS RUNNING OR YOU WILL POTENTIALLY HAVE A LIFETIME OF DARKNESS TO REGRET IT. PLEASE WEAR APPROPRIATE EYE PROTECTION. I CANNOT STRESS THIS STRONGLY ENOUGH ## If you have any questions then please don't hesitate to contact me.
The price was already dropped by 20% earlier today and that's as far as I can go. 5 new watchers in 24hrs, who's gonna pull the trigger... I'm getting 8-10 enquiries about this light every day. A lot are asking for a photo of it running, so I've added one.
