SS Sol LED Grow Light
About the SOL Series
SOL was developed for the price-conscious consumer who wants Hydro Grow performance on a budget. Little did we know all the other benefits that would ensue such as the most even spread of light intensity of any LED grow light, or a spectrum so well blended you cannot differentiate individual colours. SOL is also our most efficient platform for aquarium use, providing even umol readings from edge to edge with no hot spots!
SOL has the blinding intensity of the sun with a wide-angle reflector for maximum coverage. It is perfect for any plants that finish under 36" tall. SOL features the same coverage, intensity and penetration as HID grow lights using a fraction of the energy and is a major contender for any indoor grower.
The SOL 85W Chipset
SOL uses a unique 85W COB (chip on board) LED. The benefits of the COB LED are reduced manufacturing costs (as each chip is not indivdually packaged) and chip-level spectral blending.
Hydro Grow debuted the COB LED in 2012. Since then we have made remarkable improvements to the engineering of our LEDs, reducing failure rates to less than 0.5% across the board. The 85W LED gives you high performance from a small footprint, without any lenses which can reduce output by up to 10% per layer.
Patented Square Coverage
Grow Rooms are rectangular or square, as are grow trays, grow tents and grow tables. So why do all competing LED grow lights use round lenses or reflectors? Simple. It's because Hydro Grow patented the square reflector and is the only company in the US or China allowed to produce it!
Square gives you 27% more coverage than round reflectors/lenses, getting more light to the edges of your garden for enhanced yields. Square also gives you less hot spot and the most even spread of light intensity of any LED grow light on earth. So many benefits from such a simple concept.
