I do not understand the IPower negative ratings. I have used IPower with success. My issue is the seller. This issue may be the cause of the folks that had a bad experience with the product.
My bulb arrived with the manufacturer's box opened MANY times previously. The wear & tear on the lip of the box was severely worn. I have a LUX meter. I held the LUX meter to the bulb I received and my currently bulb being replaced (same IPower model). The new bulb I recieved is weaker than my six month old bulb.
There are many inexperienced and rookie folks in this hobby and would not know the difference between a used bulb (which is not blown, just losing it's LUMS). It is possible we are dealing with folks selling old bulbs. At this point I have fact supporting they are selling old bulbs and zero information to support they are not.
I've tried a lot of different HPS bulbs, there is so much smoke and mirrors in the marketing but honestly I can't tell any difference between the $68-$75 models compared to the $20-$25 models, they're all around 2100-2800k color temperature for growing big flowers and measured with my light meter at six-inches on axis they're all putting out about 100k-luxe in the same fixture.
If the brightness level and color temperature is the same it's the same.
I have this bulb paired with an Apollo 600 watt ballast I bought here on Amazon, my plants are loving it.
If you read any of my reviews then you are aware I am ill. My husband and I grow our own food year round. While we prefer outdoors, in New England, it's impossible to grow year round outdoors for the normal household. We always need to have bulbs on hand, as I am the person that the light would die on the start of a long weekend and my poor veggies would die. I was down to one extra, so I saw this pack and it was a decent price so into the cart it went.
These run really hot like most HPS lights, and you will need cooling if you grow your own food in the spring and fall. When the temperature fluctuates from hot like summer to what it should be for that time of year.. I...
