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.

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: firstname.lastname@example.org
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?
