The timer function works great, it's really bright and puts off the perfect amount of heat. The light is just a tiny bit brighter when plugged in. I have mine set for 6 hours and use the blue and violet lights.
This planter is well worth the money. It usually takes radishes a full month to harvest outside. This is the cutest little aerogarden seed pod sized life support carrier.
Overall the lamp works pretty well. Comes with a remote, which is really convenient. Nice adjustable height.
Light is nothing but a circus colored gumball machine garbage light. Tripod is very flimsy. Stand isn’t sturdy.
The adapter that came with it has a rated output of 5v 3000ma (3a) most adapters are rated for 1a output. Output on it states 5v, it's outputting almost 6v. Barely 200 fc at full brightness with 2 lights on, direct from 5” away.
