Pros: Baby delivers! Acceptable heat from bulb which is probably a result of the ac/dc converter in base.
Cons: Not many. Only one, but it's minor. I was using this to nurture some organic serono pepper plants. The plants were almost induced into a shock state and I delt with leave's wilting...this may be due to me using winterized sprouts. However, the plants kicked off. Growing better than some incandescent, however, the plants resemble stretching on the shafts. I believe they're growing to fast. This can be corrected with LED through pulse width modulation. Keep reading for description...
Other Thoughts: Out of the box it looks like a rinky dink setup with hot glue holding the led base to the 120vAC/whatevervDC converter. The beautiful idea of this application is independence of grid power. LED's function between 1.7 to 2.5vdc. Light emmitting "diode", think of digital electronics...a diode need's .7 to 1.7 to trigger. However, closer inspection of the RED would indicate a high output LED which would pull more juice. The wavelength spectrum is factual as by research from NASA 660nm and 420 to 480nm (420nm would be closer the the UV spectrum however, good luck finding the LED's without paying a mint. Couple this sucker with an Arduino or Raspberry Pi and control the PWM for red and blue independently? If you're a techie like me...you found a VERY good solution for hands free, enclosed, indoor growing.
