SolarXtreme® 500

Select Voltage
  • 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"

Arrived Just in time to put plants in veg, 3 weeks in veg, and plants are growing strong, it took my other light 6 weeks for the same growth

Liked it so much, I bought another

Like the title says. Of course I started with MH/HPS. So far the only differences I have seen are easier temp. control, which was a big issue (I was using a cooled MH/HPS fixture) Growth rates are really no different, definitely not reduced. Tent temps. stay within 5 degrees of the room temp. (75 day, 65-68 when lights out). The soil and hydro temps are down due to reduction in radiant heat. If you are just getting started don't spend your money on MH/HPS. Save some more money and get the right light. I don't review things very often, unless it is a product that does what they say it will do. This is one of those products.

So far so good!

Fast shipping, well constructed and the girls are happy! Now that NY has done their due diligence with legalization, I can see myself purchasing more from CA Lightworks for the nursery I plan to open. Well done!

Top notch

Very nice lights seem to be working very well bought one for the tent and one for a backup very satisfied shipping was very fast also bought the UVB for supplemental light at flowering


Awesome light. Fast shipping. Is as advertised.

SolarExtreme 500 Rebuy

I recently purchased my third SE500 unit. I am retired and gardening is one of my hobbies. We moved to Missouri from New York in March 2020, and what a great timely move that turned out to be! Our new property has a "garage" with floor to ceiling windows on the south side and skylights. The SX500 units have turned this building into a greenhouse! I now can garden 12 months every year! The SX500 works fine 3 feet or more above the canopy of plants, and each illuminates 3x3 feet or more.

Bright light

Okay I've had the light now for about 6 months it's doing a great job construction of the light is excellent I would definitely recommend this late I wish this company would produce some vertical bar lighting I could imagine how good it would be great job ham bone out no

Best Customer service in any industry

I've owned several California Lightworks units, including the SolarXtreme 250 and 500 and have had excellent results with them. Additionally, I've interacted with David from their customer service department and have been delighted with his responsiveness and immediate attention to solving my problem. This company stands behind their products100% and will make sure you are also a "happy customer" as well.
