Light Specifications

Perhaps you’re looking for a light of a specific physical size or weight, or just tired of looking on the vendors' sites for this or other often-hidden information. If so, this section is for you.

Light Types

Some LED grow lights are targeted to a specific plant growth stage. Among the lights I compare, there are the following 6 types:

  • General: Intended as a sole source of light for all growth stages. This is obviously the most versatile type of LED grow light.
  • Cloning Only or Seedling / Clone: Intended as a sole source of light, but only during the cloning stage. Only Build My LED (BML) and Lush offer these lights; Lush doesn't really give any indication of what makes them uniquely qualified for cloning, BML claims it is a different spectrum.
  • Vegetative Only: Intended as a sole source of light, but only during vegetative growth stages. These tend to have a lot of blue in their spectrum; some are even exclusively blue.
  • Mothers Only: Intended as a sole source of light, but only for mother plants. I have no idea what this means different from vegetative only; only Pro Source Worldwide offers a light claiming to be for mothers only, and they give no details about what makes it special.
  • Bloom Only: Intended as a sole source of light, but only during the blooming stage. These lights tend to have a lot of red in their spectrum.
  • Supplemental Only: Not intended as a sole source of light, these are usually very limited in the spectrum they provide.

Lying About Specifications

Apollo Horticulture's 300W GLLED model specifications contradict themselves. At the top of the page they claim a 6 band spectrum, but in the technical specs they list 7. The light's physical dimensions are listed twice and are different. One place says it has 3W LEDs, another 5W. The description says it has 100 LEDs but the picture shows 60. I have no clue what you would actually get if you were to purchase this light.

Pro Max Grow lists their MAX600 light as taking 120 volts and 0.84 amps, which would make it a 104 watt light, but they also claim it is a 125 watt light. The specifications also say it is "104VA"; VA typically stands for volt-amps, which is equal to wattage (W = V * A) — so is this a 104 watt light or a 125 watt light?

Truth Lighting lists the input current for all of their fixtures as 580-630mA (0.58-0.63 amps) and input voltage as 85-264V. Their M16 actually pulls 714 watts; at 85V this would be 8.4 amps, and at 264V it is 2.7 amps. The math doesn't work for their M9 model either. The listed current amperage for their M6 model does work at 240V and 260V if it is 150W as that page claims, but on another page they list the wattage as either 450W or 266W for this model. Either they don't know what they're actually selling or they're just making numbers up; listing 3 different wattages for the same model points to the latter.

Basic Specifications for All Lights

The data table is very large- you may need to scroll side-to-side as well as up and down to see the whole thing. Larger screens help! If you're only looking for one company or light model, enter the name in the search to only show those results.
