HOW TO MAKE

LED HOLDER IN SMALL EKET

This guide is part of:

HOW TO BUILD A IKEA EKET CONNECTED GROW BOX

Welcome to the website guide of the Eket V2 build video guide.
With two separate chambers this build can do continuous supply in a very small package.

This guide is done with a small and a big eket, but you could do it with two large ones to allow longer vegging, in this case you can do the second eket for vegging with just 2 panels instead of 4.

The normal power usage for this build is below 50w total, which means less than $5/month for veg (4) and $3/month in bloom (3).

The new cardboard compression chamber of the blower allows for a quieter build and makes the carbon filter setup much simpler.

(The attachements below are also downloadable throughout the guide)

Aaaaand now we're back for another cardboard craft;
the point of this one is to keep a small gap between the led panel and the surface behind.
This will help with heat dissipation from the panel.
