SolarXtreme 500

  • Providing coverage for 16 square feet, our SolarXtreme 500 full-spectrum LED grow lights support all phases of the growing cycle, whether used for small-scale home growing or in a grow tent. The grow light system’s innovative design eliminates LED drivers. This is because of a revolutionary chip-on-board design and direct AC drive built into the unit.

    High-efficiency LEDs provide an output that draws less energy and results in much lower costs than traditional LED lights. At the same time, this latest addition to our line of LED plant lights puts out the full spectrum, and there’s no need to adjust the system based on changes to your yield. You can, therefore, optimize plant health and get more of it per wattage. In fact, this product consumes as much as half the electricity of traditional LED greenhouse lights.

    This compact unit offers the following advantages of large LED lights, so your home or small growing operation can thrive:

    Power Draw: 400w
    500 PPFD Distance: 24"
    800 PPFD Distance: 18"

Nice Light

Shipped for price as marked. Good Brite light but can get warm if not in a cool area. Worth the price.

so far so good

about a month in on first grow with the SolarXtreme 500. Wow is it bright compared to my old Vipraspectra. which was ok but not nearly as good as this one. The plant is looking beautiful only problem I have encountered is I am not used to the heat that is easily controlled with my vent fan but the humidity dips heavily. All this said it is quiet, bright and seems to be doing a great job. love it and would recommend to all

Great Lighting

I am very pleased with the lighting. It was sent very quickly and the packaging was great. I am now on day 17 of a grow and the lights are great! The plants are really thriving. Good job California Lightworks.


Works great

So far good

Can't say much about it yet cuz I just got it but it came in a timely fashion looks very professional and I can't wait to see how these lights work I will definitely let you know

So Far So Good....

Been using the light for a couple of weeks now. I also have a couple of cheap-made generic Chinese LED lights that I've used many times in the past. Compared to those, this light seems to blow them out of the water. The two plants that I have under this light is already double the height compared to the 2 plants I have under the generic light. The specifications on the SolarXtreme 500 states that it will adequately cover a 4x4 area. I HIGHLY doubt that is the case. There is a PAR test video for this light located at: The PAR test is significantly lower than the manufacturer's claim. So, this light will definitely cover a 2x2, but a 4x4 is questionable. Regardless, I'm having good results so far. I hope it continues.

Great Light!

Solid construction and my plants love the light it puts out. I highly recommend it!

Excellent product


My plants were coming along nicely with the 275 solar system but I felt they needed a kick up so I got the solar extreme 500 and now I can see major growth change daily. Thanks

Brand New Light

The light seems to be relatively effective, but one of the COBs isn't as bright as the others
