LED Grow Lights Depot has composed a list of the best LED lights of 2016 for growing cannabis. This list is made up of newer technology and older technology. LED technology has changed over the past several years however, we have included these "older" lights, because they have been proven many times over by growers. These "older" lights include Mars Hydro.
The newer LEDs include Cirrus LED Systems and StarLite LED. These brands feature chip-on-board (COB) arrays and are the next phase of LED technology after single high-output diodes. Some of these COB arrays can harness 2400 LED watts - and that is actual power draw!
These newer lights, such as Cirrus LED, Lifted LED, and Kind LED feature spectrum control, dimming, timers, and customizable settings. Cirrus LED, and Lifted LED allow you to control the lights via a smart phone app. This is the direction that LED lights are going and we can't wait to see what some of these companies will come up with next.
While there are several other LEDs on the market, and more being added almost every week. We have not included them here at this time. If you know of an LED grow light that you believe should be on this list, let us know in the comments below and we will consider adding the product to the list or on the 2017 list.
