Hi lads was thinking of ordering a led light to modify my juwel hood as its a single T8 bulb and i couldnt grow anything in it. Itll cost in the region of 60 usd fot the led. All opinions are good.

Unless the Power Supply unit is universal voltage like a laptop power supply (and i sincerely doubt it is) dont plug that light unit into an Irish socket....You will fry it...

USA 110V supply
Ireland 230V supply

BIG DIFFERENCE !!!!

The other thing to be aware of when buying electronic goods of any sort from the USA is that customs will grab it during transit and more than likely will hit you with import charges....You will end up paying a chunk more for it when the delivery man arrives with it and he wont hand it over unless you pay the tax....

As far as I believe it's like most led power supplies which is 110-240 v 50/60 hz but I'd have to look a bit more in depth. I'd be carrying this home from the US so more than likely wouldn't be hit with an important fee

Even though you are carrying it back from the USA yourself be prepared to be stopped by US customs and hit with import tax...

And if your plan is to stash it in your check in baggage just be aware they xray ALL baggage and may just pull you to one side....

You may or may not get away with it....

Just a word of warning!

Even if I was to pay tax which I don't mind I was asking is it a good idea to modify my original hood from a single t8 to this led setup
