Many cannabis growers today are using more of COB LED grow light than they did in the past because they come with a few more advantages compared to the traditional HPS/MH grow lights. This is because you get more intense brightness and lighting from a COB 250 watt LED grow light from than you would from the MH and HPS grow lights. This goes for all wattage levels.
One of the things to consider though is that COB LED grow lights cost slightly more than other LED grow lights. Price not withstanding COB LEDs come with a design that accommodates more LEDs into their single chips than the other LED lights. This makes them have a much higher light and brightness intensity with lower energy consumption.
Other reasons people prefer COB LEDs over the others are the longer lifespan, the centralization of light which helps to generate less heat, denser and more intense light and their beautiful designs. Below is a review of one of the best 250 watt LED grow lights in the market.
PARFACTWORKS 250W COB LED Grow Light Review
Summary of features
- Full coverage broad spectrum
- Uses latest COB grow technology
- Scientifically engineered par
- Daisy chain feature
- 70% cooler than hid lights
- For indoor use only
- Energy saving consumption
The PARFACTWORKS 250W COB LED grow light is an affordable unit that comes with an amazing design and similar wonderful and quality features. The grow light features the latest white COB technology that transforms your grow tent into beautiful natural colour. The indoors light mimics the sun’s rays and light perfectly, which also helps in better health and growth of the crops.
This it does by using high powered 12 pieces of 10 watt Bridgelux/epileds LEDs together with 1 piece of 300K cob. The light comes with a long lifespan of 10,000 hours and they provide the crops with full broad spectrum light. The bean angle of the light is 90 degrees with the COB lens, which allows it to give uniform coverage to all the crops.
Without the COB lens, the angle extends to 135 degrees which covers an even wider range of the grow space. This is however ideal for the stages of the crop growth that require less light intensity. The scientifically engineered par coverage from the COB LED grow light ensures that the crops get uniform and enough light for their better health and more yields.
Another feature that makes the grow light a worthy buy is its daisy chain system. This makes it easier to connect other units to the grow light for even more light and brightness intensity. Compared to hid lights, PARFACTWORKS is 70% cooler.
Another thing that makes this the perfect 250W LED grow light is that it goes through intense testing before leaving the manufacturing company. The grow light is a great energy saver as it consumes only 86 watts of power which are enough to provide full light coverage to a 3 by 3 foot and 2 by 2 foot grow tent. You also get the veg/bloom light switch that allows you to provide the crops with the right light spectrum during their different stages of growth.
The LED grow light comes with a manufacturer’s warranty of three years and a money back guarantee of 30 days. The full package includes the PARFACTWORKS 250W LED grow light, a hanging kit, and a six foot power cord.
