5W CREE LED Veg Grow Light – Preview

CREE LEDs Preview

We are back again with another video from our lab and this week we are taking a look at the 5w CREE LED Veg grow light. This LED grow light has become very popular with indoor gardeners as it can grow almost anything and is perfect for green leave plants like lettuce and spinach. Unlike HPS lights that emit yellow and red light, the 5w CREE LED light produces more blue light and less heat, which helps the plants grow better. Enjoy this weeks video from AdvancedLED!

Hey guys, it’s Kyle in the tent. I’ve got the Diamond Series Extreme Veg light here. It’s a new light for AdvancedLED lights. I’ll go ahead and turn it on and let you see what this looks like. It’s all blue. It’s only for your vegetation. It doesn’t do anything for your flowering at all. It’s going to be for anything that’s producing green, green leaves. Lettuces, spinach, whatever you’re looking at there. You can see that it’s nice and blue and it’s nice and bright. But you know what, that’s only half of it. Some of the details on this light: This light is actually running 5 watt CREE XT-E LED’s. IT’s all CREE. There’s nothing but the CREE LED in this light.

The wattage on it, it’s running right here at the wall, you can see it’s running two hundred and eighty. 280 watts coming out of it. If you look at it, you can see, I’ve got it pulled up about center way, and it’s covering, really covering, a 4×4 area. If I take this and move it up, you can see how easily it’s adjusted. And if I do that, you’re looking at an area that could easily cover 5×5, 6×6. Um, depending on what you’re growing, you can get a lot of coverage out of this light.

The who would use this is a person who’s looking to really maximize their vegetation cycles. They’re… maybe already doing something with it. They’re maybe using metal halides. And they really want, metal halides are a great, great way to go, but you know what, this provides more blue, and it provides a lot less heat. So therefore you’re going to get a lot more healthy plants out of it. Uh, that’s one person that… they’re going to use to replace another person as in, the person who’s running the HPS. They’ve got mainly yellow and a little tiny amount of red in their lights. They need that blue supplemental or blue straight to their vegetation cycle. They give more of a complete light system. Anybody who’s looking at getting into the LED world, I mean, this light, look, if you use it and you find that you don’t like it for one area, it grows everything. It grows lettuce, it grows kale, it grows, there’s nothing this light doesn’t grow.
