My meter says 765W... and I tested two identical model lights

but IMO either the light's stated specs are
way off, or the light is somehow causing an inaccurate reading.
Thanks for any sensible comments.
You need to ask a sensible question first. The discrepancy is either due
to you not knowing what you are doing, a useless meter, the switch mode
power supply causing an incorrect reading or incorrect labeling.
No doubt the manufacturer will want their lights back so they can do
their own checking, most certainly if you asked them the same question.
