Read Answers for Solar Flare 120V VHO (Very High Output) T5 Fixtures

What are the outside dimensions of each sized lamp? I'm particularly interested to know if the 4-tube will fit in a DR120 tent? And is it 7200 lumens per bulb? Meaning the 4-tube puts out 28800 lumens total? -Sunga Jung

All of the Solar Flare T5 are 47" long and width ranges from 14" to 44". Son all of the Solar can fit in a 4' x 4' grow tent. And yes each lamp is 7200 lumens so 28,800 lumens for the 4ft 4 lamp is correct. -Greners Staff

How much hotter does it run, compaired to the same # of bulbs, to the HO fixtures? Are you able to keep the plants 3 inchs away from the light without burning? What's the temp.s 3" away? Thanks. -Ron

The VHO bulbs are 7200 Lumen - 95 watts each. While the HO lamps offer 5000 Lumens - 54 watts. So an 8 lamp will have 57,600 lumens, that's 17,600 more lumens. Although you are running 328 more watts. T5 lamps give off the same amount of heat as an HID light watt per watt. So a 4ft 12 lamp VHO T5 fixture is just as hot as 1000W HPS or MH light. We suggest giving your plants at least 9 inches of space from the tubes. -Greners Staff
