  1. Yes. I have an ‘08 iMac24”, beautiful machine, stunning piece of solid aluminium architecture… Can’t browse many web sites because something or other is not supported anymore. There are YouTube videos where these machines can be loaded with Windows 10 and work pretty well. It’s on my 5 year plan. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  3. Yes they lock together. Nice slimline connections which will not pull out. I’d like to have all kit in my tent on these connectors (5 year plan!) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I think you will go from strength to strength, because you have an open-minded approachable attitude, you listen to your clients and act / address issues promptly, sensibly and logically. This is commendable, nothing worse than lame excuses, passing the buck or wool-over-the-eyes BS. I also like that your priority has obviously been making use of quality components versus a pretty looking package with nice packaging but inferior components.

  5. Hi guys I received my 240w today. Negatives: 1. Packaging will not protect the light if there is a mishap in transit. There needs to be a solid thin piece of plywood / abs plastic / correx / polystyrene in the base of the box. Bubble wrap is good for absorbing a bit of bumping but won’t stop penetration. Having said that, my light emerged unscathed. 2. No booklet / leaflet / link to any information whatsoever. (Or that I could see). Well there is an instruction leaflet referring the power monitor box, but not the light spec / hang heights etc. 3. Wiring (connections specifically) is an OCD nightmare and although it is probably within regulations, I am not a fan of these new “push to contact” connectors, which work fine but if something happens in the tent, as can happen, and a little excess force is exerted on the connections, they are going to pull out. They are also exposed to moisture / humidity. 4. No coating over the LED’s. Some manufacturers cover them with a protective clear layer to protect from moisture. Positives: 1. Very very bright, great diodes (according to spec). I went for the “extra diodes” option, I count 576 on the board. 2. No coating on LED’s means higher intensity 3. Proper heat sink, anodised black. Elegant looking light. 4. Very effective proper outboard dimmer. Even though it seems to have a range between 10% and 100%, this is a great feature. 5. Top quality driver, not mounted on the heat sink. 6. Simple and effective single-point hanging system, however it is a bit on the long side. I will probably use two of my own adjustable ratchets. 7. Nice long cable provided between light and driver. I decided to neaten up my wiring on this light, in so doing I also decided to exclude the little power-indicator box. It’s a really cool device but in the end I doubt I’ll reference it much. It ideally needs to be mounted in a hobby box to keep the wiring out of harms way. All in all, I’d say great bang for buck.

  6. Looking forward to getting this QB for my Veg space. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. It might have been caused by tension on the cable, causing the terminals to “arc” and build up heat, melting the plastic. Once the plastic looses shape, as it melts, the terminals can move apart to the point where the distance is too far for the power to arc and it just breaks contact. If you are buying a new IEC (Kettle Plug cable) you can get really long ones, like two meters or more. You can also make one up with components from a radio shop. Some pro audio equipment makes use of “Powercon” connectors which twist and click so they can’t pull out (just some useless info) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I am using a CO2 setup. 100kg bottle has lasted 4 months already and it’s still got half left I think. The Suremix (food grade) CO2 cost R1000.00 CO2 in my grow room is easily adjustable. At the moment around 800ppm. Grow room is sealed off. The monthly rental for the bottle is expensive, around R300/month! I want to buy my own bottle sometime. I mainly use it to ensure sufficient ambient co2 is available, as Prom said it’s another mission to maximise its potential. I’m not there yet! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  10. Hi Albert Wrong forum. Right attitude. [emoji12] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Great pics. Did you buy the Sonoff extension cables to lengthen the TH probe cables? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Man this controller is the bomb. It’s going on my wish list! It will work on my fans. Unless it’s already a feature, perhaps the next one will be WiFi enabled, allowing remote monitoring and control? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Thanks for showing us the Smart display. I wonder if the new controller will work on the old (model before Bluetooth) fans? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Not sure if it will suit you but I’ve used the Autopot system with the Air Dome successfully. Once running you can leave it for ages, depending on the res size. I’ve done 5 days on a 50l res. It’s main drawback is that the res feeds all pots the same nute mix so if you have newer plants or some that veg later (I’m talking about auto’s now) then it becomes a bit of a hack. Probably ideal for clones from the same mother. I’ll get there eventually. Here you can see my 9 pot auto pot system with water and air lines run. I’ve raised the pots on crates because my knees don’t bend so good anymore LOL. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Oh sorry forgot to mention. They are very very strong and even on speed 1 or 2 they create great negative pressure in the tent. They are silent up to speed 3 or 4 and then it’s like a jumbo jet taking off! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
