The California Lightworks SolarXtreme 500 changes everything!
They removed all extra features and gave us a horticultural LED light that is specifically made for small home growers and grow tents.
You can't program the spectrum or control many fixtures from one remote or use it in a greenhouse.
If you want any of those features, this is not the light for you. Check out the SolarSystem series instead.
If you don't need those features, why pay for them? The SolarXtreme series sells for much less, because it eliminated those extras.
The cost is further reduced by using a brand-new generation of COB (chip on board) LEDs in combination with new direct AC drive technology, which eliminates the need for LED drivers. Drivers cost money.
The California Lightworks SolarXtreme 500 is an easy to use, compact, full spectrum LED grow light designed especially for grow tents and small-scale home growing.
The SolarXtreme series uses a revolutionary new generation of COB (chip-on-board) as well as new direct AC drive technology which eliminates the need for LED drivers. This offers high-efficiency LEDs at a much lower cost than traditional LEDs.
This fixture emits a full, white light spectrum suitable for all phases of growth (seed to harvest) without the need for adjusting.
California Lightworks also offer two additional models in the SolarXtreme series: the smaller SX 250 and the larger SX 1000.
