As businesses accelerate to the target goal of net-zero emissions, innovations like the MegaDrive Vertical 800 Series are setting the stage for sustainable growth.

Below, we’ll provide a brief overview of the gains you can achieve by implementing MegaDrive® Vertical 800 Series LED Grow Lights.

What exactly is the MegaDrive® Vertical 800 Series?


A total upgrade to start. One of the biggest cannabis trends of 2022 is upgrading to LED lights. In 2016, only 21% of cultivators reported using LED lights in the propagation stages, and even less in the vegetative and flowering stages. By 2020, over 50% of cultivators reported using LED lights in all three stages.

The New MegaDrive® Vertical 800 Series is designed for indoor growing and features 800 watts of power, making the MegaDrive® Vertical 800 one of the most powerful grow lights on the market. The Vertical 800 Series is chainable, with up to 12 lights running from a single power drop and driver. This drastically saves on installation costs and eliminates heat from the grow room.

It also features programmable two-channel spectrum control to ensure optimum lighting in all phases of growth. Best of all, the new MegaDrive® Vertical Series reduces fixture costs and improves operating efficiencies, producing up to 3.5 uMoles/J efficacy.

  • Reduced Fixture Costs by 30%
  • Reduce Installation Costs by up to 80%
  • Best Spectrum for all Grow Phases
  • Reduced Heat in the Grow Room
  • Lowest Energy Consumption
  • Award-Winning Support

The system is perfectly sized for a standard vertical setup, featuring a single driver and drop for up to 12 fixtures, these lights are designed to maximize your yields, potency, and profits.

How do Two-Channel Spectrum and Sequential Dimming Work?


The two-channel spectrum control for veg, pre-flower, flower, and final finishing is one of the most powerful features of the MegaDrive Vertical 800 LED Grow Lights.

The sequential dimming and spectrum control allow for better care of indoor plants in that you can change the color of the lights to counteract environmental stressors on your facility and allow your plants to thrive.

This means bigger, better quality yields, and more profit – all while decreasing your environmental impact and constraining runaway costs amid a strained market.

What other benefits do the MegaDrive Vertical 800 LED Grow Lights offer?


As mentioned, the central power supply runs 12 lights from a single power drop and driver. This makes it so that your plants are better protected from unnecessary heat, and you can have more space for more plants.

Heat Reduction

The heat reduction means savings on cooling and a reduction in your company’s carbon emissions.

Easy Control System

The system is also controlled by a range of options including a hardwired touch screen, wireless Bluetooth, or even third-party controllers.

Customer Services

The Vertical 800 Series is manufactured in California and all customer service is based in the United States.

Is Installing the MegaDrive Vertical 800 Difficult?


The MegaDrive Series is delivered with the fixtures, all cables, all electrical connectors, hanging hardware, and power supplies, along with mounting hardware for the power supplies. Your electrician just has to connect the power supply to the electrical panel. The rest of the installation can be handled by unskilled labor.
