1. How do I determine the right light for my grow area?
Measure the floor space. Multiply the length times the width and this will give you the square footage. You should be able to get decent results with 30-50 actual watts of power per square foot.
2. For larger areas should I go with a single large panel or multiple medium to small lights?
Using multiple lights allows you to better distribute the intense light in more areas of the grow space instead of having all of the higher intensity light concentrated in only one area while the outer edges never receive intense light.
3. Recommended Hanging Distance Above Plants
Seedling: 24'' Germination: 24''-30'' Veg: 18''-24'' Flower: 12''-18''
4.Here are more tips for grow under our light:
Growth stage, turn Growth switch on. Bloom stage, turn Growth and Bloom switches on.
5. Recommended Lighting Time
Veg: 18/6(on/off) or 20/4(on/off) Flower: 12/12(on/off)
6. Recommended Growing Conditions
The rate of photosynthesis and transpiration are directly affected by temperature, humidity and airflow.
The perfect temperature and humidity for your plants are found between 75°-85°F and 50% - 70% humidity, with plenty of airflow to replenish CO2. PH is 6-6.5. You may add more calcium and magnesium than normally needed.
7. Please Note
The light is not water-proof, so do not use it under water environment.
Light may be too strong, please wear your sunglasses when looking at it.
Some leds seem dim. They are IR. Human eye can not see IR very clearly, but you can wear sunglasses to check.

Is this led adapted for flowering? In a tent 60cmx60cm what is the n'est choice between the reflector 300W ans this one for flowering ?Thanks on a advance for tour response.
TS1000 is better. Because it is more powerful than reflector 48. And it is new quantum board design. longer lifespan.
Does this have any IR leds on the panel, if so how many?
There is no IR for TS1000
Does the T-1000 Series have switches for veg and bloom stages?
The TS doesn't have switches for veg and bloom, but the light can be wattage adjustable. You can use the light for the whole grow cycle.
It the TS-1000 dimmable?
The TS series are dimmable, you can use a screw to adjust on the power supply.
How many are needed for a 4 x 4 foot area?
The TS 1000 is suitable for 3x3 during veg, and 2x2 during flowering, so you will need 4 of them to cover your 4x4 tent; Or you can try two of the SP 250 or TSL2000. We will have TS 3000 that can cover the 4x4 space in two month time as well.
What screw driver type to use for best result with the dimmer and is it that little screw at the bottom of the hole that needs to be moved to dim ?
the screw driver with the similar diameter as the hole on light, get the screw driver into the hole, it will make the light dimmable.
What is the recommended hanging height and hanging hours?
During seedling: 18/6 or 20/4; above 30''
During veg: 18/6 or 20/4; 18~24'' above canopy
During flowering: 12/12; 12~18'' above canopy
Recently purchased this light, love it very much, plants grow obviously. The only issue is the panel gets hot, cannot touch it, is this normal? Should I do something?
The TS series are no fan design, so the panel needs to release heat itself. We are using all aluminum material for the light body, and all the material are anti-fire, over 90% of the components are UL listed, so the light won't catch fire. Also the heat is under control, won't influence the lifespan of the light. Please don't worry. BTW, the whole room temperature won't increase too much. If you don't like the heat of the light, you can add one small fan above the light, it will help a lot, also during winter, it will not be a problem as well.
Is the panel waterproof?
TS is not water proof, please make sure to clean the light now and then in order to ensure its longer lifespan.
I received the light, but the whole panel cannot turn on? What is wrong?
TS has two connection side, one is for the power cord, another side you need to plug in to the panel aka pcb board. Please check if you have plug in both sides. If both sides is connected, the light should be on. If both sides is connected and the light is still not turn on, please email us for warranty: email@example.com
My panel arrives, but the shape is a little changed, help!
The TS series is all aluminum for heat releasing purpose. But at the same time, the aluminum is soft and easy to change shape during shipping. So the panel might change a little shape when you get it. But they will also be easy to use a hammer or something to return back shape as well. We are also keep improving our package to avoid more of these happen. Hope you can kindly understand.
Can the TS be daisy chained?
TS cannot be daisy chained
What is the coverage of the TS 1000 for veg and flower?
During veg, it can cover 3'x3'; During flowering, it can cover 2'x2'.
I see that the power draw is 150 watts, what is the"rated" power of the TS1000 ?
The maximum power is 150w, if you want bigger wattage light, you can consider our TS 2000.
For the dimmer. Is it better to move it to a 100 on flower I can’t find anywhere that’s tell me want numbers r the best for the stages thanks the (25-50-75-100)
100% will be perfect for flower. :) with right hanging distance around 12~16'' above your plants will be great.
Can I use 240V input with the TSL 2000 or 120V only? The specifications say you can but I`m afraid might damage the light.
Our TS series can work at 100~277v voltage, as long as the plug is the right type, you can use the light at any voltage without any problem.
What is included in this package?
Including the package, you will find a TS 1000 light, the power cord, the rachet hangers, the normal hangers, plus instruction and warranty manual.
How long is the power cord to driver, can I place driver outside tent.
TS1000led power cord is not long enough to move driver outside.
Are the lights a plug and play can I just plug them into a timer and be done or will a another purchased need to be made
Yes, they are. We will ship the light according to customers' local voltage and plug type.
Is this unit shipped at 100% power when it arrives to me or will I have to adjust dimmer when i get it to achieve 100% power.
The factory setting is 75%, which is better for plants growing, you can turn down the power for different needs. But please don't turn it up, avoid to reduce the light lifespan or damage it.
Can I have two TS 1000's in a 0.75m x 0.75m x 2m tent, for flower, or would it be better to have one TSW2000 instead? Or are both of these options too much for that size grow tent? If so, what about in a 3ftx3ftx6ft?
1 unit TS1000 for 0.75m x 0.75m x 2m tent, even in flower stage, it's enough. For a 3ftx3ftx6ft tent, 1 unit TSW2000 is the best choice.
Would two of the TSw 1000 cover a 4x4 space or one tsw 2000 be good enough
TS1000 coverage is 2x2 at bloom, 3x3 at veg. 2pcs TS1000 is great for the 2x4 area. The TSW2000 coverage is 3x3 at bloom, 4x4 at veg. If you want to full use your space, the TS3000 is the best price for the 4x4 area.
What is included in the package when purchased?
You will get: light+power cord + steel hangers + rachet hangers + instruction and warranty manual
Which power do you recommend I set on my TS-1000 for seedling stage?
For the wattage, please use the formula to get the results.Veg: (21--30W)*grow size, Flower: (30--35W)*grow size.Seedling is the same as Veg.Then you could get the wattage value you will need.
How much headroom will this light take including hangers, light thickness etc.For example in a 2m high tent how much height would be left for growning with the light set to highest setting
In a 2m light tent, hanging light at highest setting, it is 30"", deducting the light thickness, there would be 115-118 centimeter left. That's the headroom light will take.
