    I'm slowly starting to work on the PAR meters again. No estimate on when some will be available, but probably by the end of this week.

    I'm working on a batch of 6 of those PAR meters, and experimenting with a different design, using the original photodiode in the lux meter. I've been pretty sick over the past 2 weeks, so I'm stalled for now, but I should have some PAR meters ready in a week or so. I added your name to my list of people wanting one, and will PM you when I have some to sell.

    I have bought LEDs from DealExtreme about 4 times, as I recall, and they have always delivered what I ordered, in a reasonable time. I have no questions about their legitimacy at all.

    I would never have even considered trying this until mistergreen posted on his DIY PAR meter. That got me to thinking about it. Then I discovered how cheap lux meters were, and that triggered my drive to convert them to PAR meters.

    That's understandable. Hey, anything to get more people cheap PAR meters.
    I would wager you never thought a little research on PAR would have led to all this, though, huh?

    One more thing, I can't afford to buy large quantities of parts, so I can only make about 5 at a time, using the money I get from selling the last batch. I will be raising my price a little to make this part go more smoothly.

    I am now waiting for a batch of 6 luxmeters to modify - they should arrive tomorrow. After that I will be working on selecting an optimum set of filters to adjust the output as read on the meter so it is reading PAR. Then in 2-3 days I should have at least 5 PAR meters ready to sell. My mechanical design changes have made it much easier to assemble, with only one difficult task - soldering the new cable to the lux meter cable, which has very tiny and brittle wires. I'm not happy with that part, but it may not be something I can make any easier.
