Improvised & Updated Design – Some Major Changes
Well, mars hydro 300W LED grow light’s design and build was entirely different few months back and the model we’re reviewing in this article falls under their ECO series.
Yeah, they’ve removed aluminium sink from previous model.
Wait…Wait..What? Yeah, you read it correctly! In Mars Hydro Updated 300W LED Grow Light there’s no heat sink equipped on the panel. Upon researching for hours we found that they’ve eliminated this part to enhance their product’s caliber concerning power pulling and cooling. And, yeah, they succeeded in achieving the same.
Well, we’re not just saying that they’re succeeded but that’s what being verified by one of our contact who’ve used both models and observed this change.
Moreover, their previous model was featuring ordinary 3W chips while this model features 5W chips.
Also, instead of using regular light emitting diodes in current mars hydro 300W LED they’ve utilized SMD which emits 3 times brighter and effective light compared to traditional diodes.
So yeah, all in all, what they’re serving today is far better in performance, durability and efficiency compared to what their previous model was serving a year back.
Spectral Caliber – Happy Plants & Fruitful Results That Justified It
Mars Hydro 300W LED grow light features a complete full spectrum light which also includes a hint of IR in it.
Well, if you don’t know what’s the purpose of IR? Then with help of this Mars Hydro 300W Review we’d like to explain it.
Yeah, it is vital to help your plants sustain better growth as it boosts process of leaf building and cell formation.
Moreover, most vital ratio of RED:Blue is of 5:4 in the mars hydro 300W LED grow light as you can see this in following image.
Now, if we talk about bands covered in the spectrum of Mars Hydro 300W LED grow light then 400-410nm,440-450nm,450-460nm,630-635nm,650-660nm,730-740nm and 2700K-3000K are the ranges of bands available in it.
Yeah, almost all vital bands that a normal cannabis plant expect in light are present in it.
Well, that’s a bit of technical lingo and it might be a bit complex to understand for you if you’re coming across these things first time. So, we’ll cut whole story short here.
Basically, a plant’s growth and yield justifies what sort of light was supplied to the plants. So, if we take our survey of around 25 mars 300W users then on average every person got 1 oz yield result from a single LED. Yeah, that’s fabulous.
Coverage Potential & Light Density :- Not Less, Not More.
Usually, an LED at this price tag is expected to cover around 1.5’X1.5’ of grow space at max.
However, Mars Hydro updated 300W LED grow light is capable of covering around 2’X2’ of grow space uniformly when light is placed closer to the plants.
Also, if we take LCP of minimum 190 uMol into our consideration then it’s potential coverage lies at 1.5’ X 1.5’ of grow area but ideally 150 uMol on border of grow space is considered to be the enough of light for weed plants.
Moreover, LCP is the least required amount of density of light where plants could absorb required light for process of photosynthesis.
Now, if you’re concerned about number of plants that could be accommodated under a single panel then you should raise only 2-3 plants at max under a single panel for best results from this one of the best led grow light on the market.
Cost Economy & Cooling :- Sucks Less, Serves More!
It’s not what you pay for buying an LED that define it’s cost. Yeah, it is the power consumption that justifies an LED’s worth as an economical product in reality.
Now, if we take power consumption of Mars Hydro 300W LED grow light into consideration then it takes on average 130W for its best performance.
Which comparatively lower than some of other brand’s which fall in same price range and with same PAR outputs.
Moreover, their light quality is a bit compromised while mars had kept it intact and still they’ve achieved this low power requirements. Upgraded product! You remember?
Talking about Cooling; this grow light is backed with a single heavy duty yet silently operating cooling fan. And, there’s a small ventilation holes available on the side bar of the panel from where heat keeps on dissipating on its own.
Now, if we talk about our personal experience then we ran this panel for around 10 hours constantly and things were remarkably stable and there was not traces of heat inside the grow space. So, yeah it works.
Daisy Chaining :- Good For Beginners Who’re Yet To Expand
If you’re beginning an not sure whether you’ll keep hustling with the same grow zone or will expand it in future then this feature will be an added advantage for you.
Yeah, with help of daisy chain port available on the backside of Mars Hydro 300W LED grow light one could connect an additional LED panel without any need for an additional power outlet.
