I love my SolarExtreme 500, runs very cool and is extremely bright, the light itself looks great, plants responding right away. Using in a 4x4 tent and getting good full coverage of light. I recommend and would buy again.
So far they are doing pretty goid in comparison but I'm only in veg
This is replacing a older 220W LED from Callightworks
Is well made bright and does give off some heat compared to smaller one but I expect that..
I put in a 3x3 and got some bigger fans, intake and outtake... now at a comfortable temp..
The light has one weird thing - you can not take photos - it produces a weird banding across lenses ( like the LEDs are in a wave pattern ) and the cameras pick it up...your eyes wont see it but lenses do...
Plants love it though I had a small one that just wouldn't grow...after adding the brighter light it started to reach up..never have I had one do this probably genetic but the brighter light has helped on the other plants making the colors come out in leaves dark purple -
Overall I'm happy with it. Cal Lightworks makes a quality product that lasts. I still use my older one I just left it in tent lol..tandem together make it brighter. \o/
after spending much time researching lights for my small area i choose the solar extreme 500 and it absolutely lives up to its reputation. i was worried about excessive heat in a small 4x4 grow area but this light is perfect, consistent temps in the mid 70's
30 day's in, veg is incredible 😁 can't wait to see how it flowers???
First I must say that dealing Adam from the customer relations side was amazing. He guided me through the process of finding the right package for my grow space. I purchased the wrong voltage at first and he helped me do the exchange with no hassle from their end. He didn’t try to push me for more than I needed in my grow space and since changing to the solar extreme series from the previous LEDs I had, I’ve experienced a massive improvement in quality and quantity. Im even seeing better quality than my HPS and I know it seems impossible but it’s true. Thanks California Light Works for putting real craftsmanship into an American made product I can feel good about investing in.
They shipped the lights out quickly I didn't use the 500 right away but ones I did the plants loves it thinking about ordering one more after I see final product
I recommend these lights
great light output, doesn't get too hot to the touch. my ladies are loving this light in a 5x5 tent.
Received product looks well constructed, except cord could be an additional 2ft, and plants are responding nicely.
