SolarStorm 880W LED Full Cycle

Choosing an LED grow light isn’t always an easy task. A lot of them can seem like they are essentially the same lamp, with just a few minor differences. Every now and again, though, there are companies like California Lightworks that produce a truly groundbreaking LED grow light that completely changes the way that people look at their indoor grows.

Of all of their grow lights, this 880w LED grow light is perhaps their strongest and most efficient. The years of research and development they have funded has paid off with the Solarstormgrow lamp, which is quickly becoming an industry standard in terms of quality. It is hard to fit all of the good things into a single review, but here we will take a look at the key points that stand out amongst all the other options that are currently on the market.

The SolarStorm 880 is one of the most powerful LED grow lightson the market. It features 288 high flux bin OSRAM SSL LED emitters. The SolarStorm 880 also features a unique supplemental UV-B mode which is essential to develop higher potency harvest. The sun naturally contains large amounts of UVB. HID lights do not deliver any significant levels of UVB. No other LED grow light in the market covers the UVB spectrum because LED diodes are narrow band and focus their light in a narrow spectrum. SolarStorm employs unique T8 fluorescent UVB bulbs integrated into the fixture with a separate control. The UVB bulbs are typically turned on during final few weeks or “finishing” phase of the grow cycle to boost the potency of the final harvest.

The top benefits that most people experience when they switch to this SolarStorm 880 LED grow light:

-Super High Flux LED Diodes

The 5w LED diodes used in this grow light are among the best in the business. There are 176 of them included here, which cover both red and blue spectrums of light. There are many manufacturers that use less effective diodes in an effort to save money, but that is certainly not the case here.

-High Lifespan Rating

With a 50,000 hour lifespan, you won’t ever have to worry about replacing this lamp like you would with fluorescent tubes or HID systems. Fluorescent tubes, for example, are typically rated at a lifespan of around 20,000 hours, but they lose their efficiency after much less than that. These LED lights will stay strong throughout their entire life, which is at least twice as long as other grow lamps.

 

-High Efficiency Rating

This particular California Lightworks lamp works at near 90% efficiency, which is far and away better than anything that you would have ever accomplished with HID or fluorescent lights. Those forms of grow lights will waste a great deal of power, where this LED lamp spends almost every bit of electricity that it gets on lighting up your plants. This means that it is also capable of giving your lights the same amount of energy as a much larger HID light, replacing up to a 1,600 watt lamp in some cases.

-High PAR Output

PAR light is what is responsible for penetrating through the canopy of your plants and making sure that the photosynthetic reactions are strong and consistent. This LED lamp has 25% more PAR light than other products and it makes sure that nothing is left untouched by this powerful light. Most other product lines you will come across don’t have near this kind of capability, so it is worth pointing out.
