    Default MML Floodies are here

    Most of you have tried the cheapie floodies and they all have a common problem, early burn out due to inadequate heatsinking. In the next week we'll be offering our own floodie with full SAA and RCM approvals, a reliable light with a great high tech heatsink and with our own custom pcb and blend for freshwater, marine and Hydroponics. These are great bang for buck no frills lights that deliver results, not dimmable, can't be connected to our dimmer/controller range and plug directly into the mains, no power pack required. 50W model will be first followed by 100W and 150W models in a month or 2. They won't be as cheap as the cheapies for obvious reasons but they will be cheap! Full details, pricing and specs in around a week or so.

    Ok so quick review, these lights are very bright.
    Silly me tried to see the coloured LED's by looking into the light while it was on.

    20mins later and I was still recovering lol.

    DONT DO THIS

    Still working on a hanging kit for this light before I can get it onto the tank though.
    Will post pics once I come up with a design. may get handy with the 3d printer at work.

    Madness!! Be careful with using plastic to hang a 220V light on top of your tank. Consider using steel bracket or something more sturdy.

    Good point Rebel, I was more so just thinking about ways to change the handle on the floodlight to something a little more aesthetic.
    Plastic isnt a good idea.

    Will be using a steel frame to hang them from at a minimum.

    Hey Luke, I re read my post and the "madness" that I mentioned pertains to you looking directly at LEDs rather than anything else I said afterwards.

    Just to clear it up as it would be madness not to do so. 😜

    Best to use phone camera or a pair of polarised sunnies to look at LEDs. Even then, not directly.

    Also while on the topic - Fred if you see this, when will the floodies be coming back into stock?
    And also the higher power models?
    Cheers

    More planted tank floodies in around 2 weeks, if you can't wait we have some dutch planted floodies which are a little warmer colour but still perfect for plants and also a straight 6500K white. Currently designing a layout and circuit design for 100W and maybe 150W but these are about 3 months away.

    Hi Fred, thanks for this. If possible, could you please give me a yell when the planted 50w is available to order?

    Would two of these be high light on a 120x45x45cm tank?

    Would love to see some pictures of these fitted/working if anyone has some.

    Cheers!

    We initially built only 20 of these as a trial and they sold out pretty quick, more available as of today. Yes I would consider 2 of these high light on a 120x45x45.
