Choosing Your LED Light

What to look For in an LED Grow Light?

Since many of our first-time buyers experience difficulty choosing the best LED grow lights for their plant’s particular needs, our team of experts offer these tips for choosing LED grow lights.

The qualities of the best LED lights:

When shopping for LED grow lights, our experts recommend looking for products that have the following qualities:

  • Made in the USA

The most trusted manufacturers of the highest-rated colored LEDs include CREE, Osram, and LEDengin, which you find in American-made LED grow lights. At Advanced LED Lights, we ensure the LEDs in the lights we sell are from these US companies. In addition, we verify our brand name products lines have the highest BIN codes along with the color and power inputs of the LEDs used in the grow lamp.

The Diamond Series XML 150, Diamond Series XML 350, and Diamond Series XML 650 led grow lights use the powerful new 10w CREE XML2 LEDs that provides the optimal lighting environment for cloning, vegetative, and flowering plants.

  • Low Heat Output

LED grow lights with low heat output provide the best value in two essential ways:
Since lights that generate little heat prevent the environment from becoming too hot, the grow space requires less cooling than spaces where high heat output LED lights are in use.
High heat output LED lights tend to fade and burnout more quickly than cooler LED lights that reduce both replacement costs and the time spent installing the new lights.
At Advanced LED Lights, we do not develop LED lights that are overdriven. Instead, our team develops highly rated LED grow lights that optimize the health and beauty of your plants. All our LED lights generate less heat, less maintenance, and a longer life than other lesser quality products.

  • Easily Used

Since your time is valuable, the LED grows lights you choose need to be easily installed. In addition, you should be able to adjust the height of the lights quickly and simply, as well as their color and intensity.

The Diamond Series, the Diamond Series XML, the Diamond Series XTE, and the Diamond Series EX-VEG are ready to go right out of the box. All feature easy-to-use color and intensity controls for your convenience.
