Basically, I'm trying to build a home LED lighting kit...

This is way of topic…but it’s the reason I reached the forum in the first place (before knowing I really need a serious flashlight)

So basically I’m trying to build something like this lighting system but with LED

I currently have a few of these SON-Ts but the energy bill is enormous.

Anyone have any experience with building a system like this but from LED? I’d sure be willing to invest a bit in LEDs so I can cut on electricity.

Thanks,
MH

Light Technical Characteristics

Color Code 220 [CCT of 2000K]
Color Rendering Index 25 (max) Ra8
Color Temperature 2000 K
Luminous Flux EM 25°C, Rated 90000 Lm
Luminous Efficacy Lamp EM 148 Lm/W

To be honest I think you’ll have a hard time meeting those specs with led. The cost is one thing but I imagine the set up would be large and complicated in comparison.

While the specs are hard to get it is not impossible to find the right product. It might be better to contact manufacturers and ask if they can create a custom order as a test before odering larger quatity. For those seeking other bright lights you can find the best flashlight brands online
