    Default A few questions

    I’m currently on the invisible sun site, I was going to go for 2 x ISH150 @ 85w each. I have made a previous post about these lights and was told they would be perfect for my 2.5x2.5ftx6ft tent, but the website says up to 9ft in veg and up to 5ft in flower is that just the maximum or recommended space?

    I was also looking at the ISH150, which is a single board but the website says its equivalent to 50w more in HID lighting (300w) than the 2 boards but it seems quite hard to use the dimmable function on the driver... although I’m not even sure if the driver is dimmable it doesn’t say either way. Is this one better than the other?

    Hey dude, invisible sun is out of stock of my lights at the minute so I’ve still not ordered. But I think after a few hours trawling through different pages I’ve figured out most of it, although I did have one more question how hard is it to dim these kits? It’s all saying built in with a potentiometer, which makes it sound like I’d have to open the driver to adjust it

    Ok mate ask away if needs be.

    Meanwell dimming options

    Pic 1 is built in, so called 'A' driver. Remove rubber bung ( top left corner in pic ) and adjust internal potentiometer. Adjustable range is ~50 - 110%.

    DO NOT run without bung especially if inside humid groom.

    Pic 2 is the 'B' driver which is missing the internal pot but has extra input wire. Need something like pictured in pic 3. Adjustable range ( 0 - 100% ). Driver is water tight.

    My preference is type B as i hate faffing with tiny screwdrivers but lots use A.

    Standard from Invis will be ELG series A drivers

    Cheers mate, the photos definitely help. I’m a complete noob when it comes to LEDs and I haven’t a clue what to do lol. Just about to order my lights, they only have 3000k and 4000k lights in stock, which are best?

    I'd ask for extra discount mate. Customer is king. I'm sure they know other suppliers are out there

    It’s written on the site, didn’t think I could ask for an extra discount because they’d already told me they couldn’t send em till their back. I’m already getting the 10% talk discount too
