SolarXtreme® 250

Select Voltage
  • The SolarXtreme 250 is one of our easiest to use full-spectrum LED grow lights. Designed especially for grow tents and smaller scale home growing, this low-power grow light system draws just 200 watts with a maximum current of 1.6 amps at 120 volts.

    The SolarXtreme series features a COB (chip on board) design and utilizes a direct AC drive, so LED drivers are not needed. This enables high-efficiency LEDs to be used, at a much lower cost than traditional LEDs. Users, therefore, benefit from full-spectrum grow lights that accommodate all stages of plant growth and flowering for many types of indoor plants, vegetables, and flowers. No adjustments are needed during the growing cycle.

    Our horticultural LED lights have been developed based on years of research and knowledge of photosynthesis and biological processes. The SolarXtreme 250 represents a convenient innovation in indoor LED grow lights suited for smaller cultivations and users who wish to conserve on power draw.

    Best of all, just mount the unit, plug it in, and start growing!

Great light

The light is very bright. I have it hanging over my wife’s house plants in the basement. We are in northern Minnesota in the woods where we don’t get much winter light. We used to have a fluorescent light but the plants barely survived. After 3 weeks her peace lily is flowering. In all the years she has had it, it has never flowered before.

Great light great service

Couldn't be happier with light or experience from california lightworks


Great for a 2x2 its rocking my grow

The big little light

Purchased a solar extreme 250,it's perfect for small spaces,it's compact an puts out big light.big difference from other l.e.d.'s I've purchased.

Small tents upgraded

I have two 32 inch by 32 inch tents that I bought in a 'package' set-up deal. Decided to upgrade the lights as I knew they were weak. Did lots of reading, googling, reviews, videos. Finally I decided to go to my nearest hydro store where I buy everything I need when I need it now. Sales person there recommended these for the size of my tents, so I bought one to try and see. Simple set-up and install, in 15 minutes it was installed. Really a well made, sturdy feel to the unit, and compact also. The difference in the light was incredible compared to the discount 'kit' lights, so much so that I was back at the store buying a second one this morning. Made in the USA is a big plus to me also. Can't wait to see the effect on yield & quality.

I Highly Recommend this Light!

The light is of great quality and worth the investment. After making several purchases, I find the SolarXtreme far exceeds the others in every aspect. Fantastic results are proof positive. The only regret I have is not ordering from California Lightworks sooner.


Great quality lights I’ve bought the solar system 1100 solarxtreme 500 and these 250’s all around good lights I highly recommend.

Fantastic hardware and output for a plant light!

Happy to see such a well built plant light that is US made.

4 Stars Awesomeness

I would love to give this 5 stars but for the price, it is missing 3 things. Should have a built in timer and power off button. Some nice adjustable chain would be nice. And how about 9ft of cord instead of 6ft. Other then those minor things, it's an awesome light.

Nice Lights

Plants are looking great!
