So i started my next light build. I built this light to try and shave down my watts from my bulky T5 vegg light in my nursery and i have done it! I was running 4x led 4’ @ 44 watts ea. So 176 watts now this light is far more efficient and uses 27.3 watts per stackable module so now im using only 54.6 watts!
This light is 38.9"L x 4" w the and double the lux. I will do more measurements when i complete it. I broke my tap and need a new one. Here is the build so far.

- Digikey for modules or bridgelux.com $18.37 each.
