How much you think that weighs? Those HS just seem much lighter than the 5.86" HS stock at HSUSA I used for my cobs
The entire light, driver, hs, boards etc is about 20 pounds. Minus the driver it'd be closer to 14 lbs total on the rest of the light.
Its actually 3 two board HS's on it, the center section w/out leds is a hs also. It uses the heat sinks as the main part of the frame. Lol
So maybe 2-3 lbs if that for just one of them by itself.
I don't think a cob on them though would work very well. Too much of a spot heat point, and not a thick enough base to distribute it away fast enough unless you were running very soft.

Nothing aganist HLG, that diablo is cool 666 diodes but IDK if its just an error or misinterpretation the cri numbers on the data sheets on their website dont match their claimed 92cri less I'm reading it wrong?

I like these.
You can run them harder than a lot of boards without heat sinks. I am runnin the uv boards @100W ea. They say you can run them up to 150. Shipping to US was $35 iirc and took 2 weeks. Worth the wait IMO.

The best deal is one that doesn't need to be bought twice.

I wouldnt plan to use cobs on them. I was just entertaining the idea of making a new DIY light if I can find better efficiency in them as well as make them lighter. The ones I have with the 8 cobs still work amazing, but are probably close to 2x the weight of yours and can be a bit cumbersome sometimes. They are a bit heavy for their foot print with the 5.86" HS @ 36" each piece.

What were you thinking of making?
Frugal and super efficient is my guess. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜
Reusing the stuff you have, or all new?
Love seeing new light builds. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

The 8 cob 400 watter I made for Heathen was about 25# with everything on it. Weight wise how does that compare to yours?
20190804_132058.jpg

This one below, w/out the driver on it though is about 4# maybe, if that. Super light. Lol. Driver is remote. If on board it'd add about 4-5# ish.
240 Meanwell @ 262 wall watts, 2 boards 3000k, with 395 uv, 660 reds, and 730 IR.
Boards 14" apart for an even overlap of coverage w/no hot spot. ๐Ÿ˜Ž
Was also a super easy build, the easiest one ever.
16 screws, 8 rivets, and some wiring. Lol.

Paracord makes great light hangers. ๐Ÿ˜ Binder clips hold whichever tilt I want to have it aimed at. Works pretty well for me, and inexpensive.

that paracord would make a good scrog net too, I just don't have the patience for it lol

I'll probably be ordering some boards. Would love to get some boards I can use with my HLG185-c1400B's (200W drivers) since I already got em.
Im probably well over 20-25 lbs on my 400W DIY light picutred in my previous post. That sucker is heavy.

Those drivers would be perfect for four qb132 V2 boards each, no heat sinks required mang.
They'd run about 50 watts each board at that ma.

Thats a great deal for all 4 panels. Wish they had the 3500K. Might still do the 3000K and dedicate it to a flower tent.

So I may not have been the only one who noticed the datasheet inconsistency, but I was the only one who said anything. HLG should have the correct datasheet posted soon according to stephenj.

@Z71banshee Hey man, I actually just got an order in today...You can take a look at my thread and see what I got... but either way I would not recommend to buy from ANYONE else.. Seriously... This guy is incredible, speaks english, and has phone number where he is willing to answer questions... Shipping was literally instant as well.. I would recommend you take a look at his custom built stuff before you go with a QB though... depends on what you want but I wish I found this guy a year ago...
