    I am waiting for this light to come and make substitute for my two 10w diy reflectors , but i want to know how many watt or par or lum or any other mesurments are on 7 dimmable levels.
    At max its 39watts, 5800 lumen, 117 leds, but on other 6 levels i can't find info.
    Did anyone test it?

    UK based forum, so distances are probably in cm, I'm assuming. It has the PAR for what I'm assuming is the max level, but not the lower 6.

    With levels:

     

    The two threads have slightly different readings, but the actual PAR is probably close to what they say.

    I think I would depend on your plants, substrate, ferts etc but a lower level is good to start with, and then gradually increase.
