But not to Kind leds, there are far better options around.

I'm interested in the actual output. It says 400 equivalent. What is the actual output of em?

Good point, since any UL or similar rated product will have a label somewhere stating this. Exact watts, amps and the base voltage it's wired for.

Yeah man. 18 K lumens sounds pretty dope for 100 buck and its led. If you want something ive found super helpful amd for less money you can always get a Vero 29 ($28.00) a driver from Amazon @ 1500 m.a ($13.99) and either a passive heatsink from rapid led ($19.00) or get ya a arctic alpine 11 plus ($19.00). Personally I would go passive because ive had fans fail, and when they do, so do your leds.

Grow proven LEDs also have better tailored spectral output vs any old white led..

Our eyes cant detect when the high quality blue and red light falls off because we are so sensitive to green light..

Seems like a rookie mistake to me but who knows..

Have run and sold Kind LEDs in the past; have a grow, own a growshop. As a couple posters have stated, there are MUCH better options. 1.) Please, I beg you all, go full spectrum. Look to nature if you need to, does the sun glow pink, blue, etc.. 2.) Call KIND and ask them what their umol(PAR)/watt is? They probably won't tell you because it is only slightly better than an HPS...basicly this means...how much (usable) light per watt...if its not usable light its unusable light or heat. In KINDS case its both. Unfortunatly, you cannot duct the LED like an HPS...sooooo, a lot of heat and unusable light, which translates to shitty yields. Id love to meet a KIND grower that breaks 2 per 4x4, using only KIND leds. 3.) Look into quantum board LEDs; the future is now. Specifically Horticulture Lighting Group, or HLG. It's the ONLY lights I sell now, I've completely done away with bulbs...HPS, MH, CMH, DE, T5 etc...If you were thinking of using LEDs, do yourself a favor and forget about KIND (They are also difficult when warranty becomes an issue too).

Picked it up used on ebay locally for under 600, and its been smooth sailing with my 1st indoor grow. You can put your hand like an inch away from the LED's and hardly feel any heat at all.

Glad your grow is going well...For next time, perhaps, an HLG 300 would have cost similarly new. KIND is fairly outdated technology in LED world. Take a temperature of the top of the light...Thats where heat goes; up.
