Its the basics and you NEED to understand it.
If you are really don't want to research too much, then get solderless LEDs. You can look on Youtube to see how to solder LED
reef lights and decide if you want to experiment. It might be a pricey project if you mess up with the regular LED
kits that make you solder.
After understanding the basics, the most important thing I look at is the LEDs. Most of the options you see will be 3w LED
. Then you need to consider the different brands of LED
. The LED
kit in the website you listed has Bridgelux LEDs. Those LEDs are not as powerful as the Cree (another brand) LED
on the RapidLED solderless kits. For example, 7 Cree LED
will provide as much light as 10 Bridgelux LED
Why would you care between 7 or 10 LED
? 10 Bridgelux LEDs will cost more in electricity bill. The more number of LEDs will show provide more blue lighting to the naked eye, so its the only reason to get 10 LED
in my opinion. They are always coming out with more effecient LEDs, so there is even more advanced models of Cree LEDs.
