NO – The Pro MAX Grow Lights have been engineered to maximize both growth and flowering using just one light fixture. Our advanced design and cutting edge technology makes this grow light a true one fixture solution.
A large number of LED grow lights being sold are made at a couple of factories in China using the same basic drawings and thus they look strikingly similar if not identical. These types of lights are imported and then resold by companies that specialize in marketing and have no assembling, product or growing knowledge. These companies are merely internet storefronts staffed by someone whose sole function is to run a credit card number. Our assembling is done at our facility in New York. Our staff is comprised of lighting professionals with the requisite knowledge to answer growers questions. When you purchase a Pro MAX Grow you are purchasing it direct from the manufacturer.
NO – The Pro MAX Grow Lights LED’s are designed so that they do not require any noisy built in fans that are notorious for breaking which would render a grow light worthless. The built in fans on many grow lights are needed to keep the light cool due to a failure to properly engineer the heat that the diodes give off. The Pro MAX Grow is so quiet you will never know it’s on.
Pro MAX Grow Lights LED grow lights are manufactured with built-in power supplies and require no additional power sources. Just remove the light from the box – take off the plastic wrap, attach the hooks to a rod and plug it in – it’s that simple.
Pro MAX Grow Lights warrants that our grow lights will be free from defects in material and workmanship for a period of 5 years from the date of purchase.
The Pro MAX Grow is designed to grow up to 12 plants in a 4X4 grow area. The Max1200 is a 3 for 2 replacement for 1000watt HPS for flowering and a 1 to 1 replacement for veg.

The answer is YES, if your grow light contains the correct diode spectrums and produces enough light intensity.
The factors that lead to a vibrant bloom and maximum yield is having the correct PAR levels (PAR = photosynthetically active radiation) of light for the type of plants being grown. The standard way to measure PAR light is in micro-moles per square meter per second (µmoles/m2/s.) At noon time in NY on a day filled with sunshine a PAR meter will read approximately 2,000 µmoles/m2/s. There is a vast difference between the needs of different plants for healthy flowering. Some vegetables require just a few hundred µmoles/m2/s to grow while others require higher levels such as 1,000 µmoles/m2/s or higher. Be wary of companies claiming to have the most powerful light. This is a marketing scheme because too much light does not necessarily equate to better growth and flowering. The reason is that plants are only able to absorb a certain maximum level of light. The remainder of the excess light is reflected back and goes unused. This maximum level of light absorption is called the “light saturation point” and it varies from plant to plant. In order to achieve maximum flowering, the leaves of your plants need to receive PAR light levels that approach their light saturation point.
The Pro MAX Grow LEDs were designed to focus the light produced so that it hits the deep blue and deep red part of the light spectrum as this is where absorption by plants is highest. Because of this, our LEDs permit the grower to achieve maximum bloom with a lower PAR light value as compared to HID or HPS lights due to the fact that our lights hit where absorption is highest in the deep blue spectrum (430-460nm) and deep red spectrum (650-670nm). Our advanced technology permits maximum results with the positioned 12” to 24” from the plant canopy.
1) For years the “staple” of indoor growing was the use of high intensity discharge lighting (HID) which are MH (Metal Halide) and HPS (high pressure sodium). The popularity of these lights stemmed from the fact that they were the only lighting technology that produced high enough levels of PAR light. However, there are downsides to HID lighting. The first is that they are not the most efficient at delivering the proper levels of PAR lighting which results in the loss of most of their energy as heat rather than being used as light for plants. The fallout from this is very high energy costs in addition to be need for additional cooling of the lights via large fans and expensive ducting. The other type of lighting often used is fluorescent lighting. While they can do an adequate job of producing vegetative growth, they lag far behind in producing enough light power to promote flowering. These traditional types of grow lights do not have the ability to produce the specific wavelengths of light that plant require for maximum absorption. Because our Pro MAX Grow LEDs are far more efficient than HID lighting and create so little heat to generate high intensity light they do not require any form of supplemental cooling.
2) We work with an energy consulting company, Koan Energy in Minneapolis, to work on your behalf with your local energy company to help you qualify for any rebates that might be available.
3) We also work with an equipment leasing company if you have any interest in leasing with a $1 buyout at the end. It is a great way to save out of pocket money and let your energy savings help pay your monthly lease expenses.
Simple answer — NO. When looking for a grow light the grower needs to take into consideration the complete financial landscape which includes the cost of the grow light, the electrical costs over time, the cost of fans and the costs of installing venting. LED grow lights are more expensive than traditional lights when first purchased, however, when the complete financial landscape is viewed the overall costs are less than cheaper less efficient systems. Another factor is that LEDs do not require bulb changes and if used properly the diodes are rated for 50,000 hours at a 70% mean life. Traditional light bulbs are only rated for 10,000 – 12,000 hours. When considering the energy savings and bulb replacement costs, LEDs are much less expensive than traditional grow lights.
