If you’re in the market for LED grow lights, you would have likely encountered some temptingly low-priced sites like Amazon, eBay, etc. And if you are a savvy buyer, you would probably wonder why the pricing of those grow lights was so competitive. More likely than not, it’s because those sellers don’t mark real specifications.
We strictly follow the CE RoHS FCC ETL standard. We suggest buying from us instead of buying on ebay & amazon, because most sellers use high quantities of leds with less efficiency, and many of their products often fall short of the quality and safety standards you need for a successful grow operation, especially if you are working in a commercial growth capacity.
This is why it’s so essential to thoroughly research the manufacturer of any LED grow lights you consider purchasing. As both LED technology and the grow light industry explode in popularity, more and more fledgling business owners are throwing their hat into the ring. Between their limited experience and eagerness to cash in on the next great business opportunity, some small businesses fail to do the due diligence necessary to ensure their lights meet with the standards their customers deserve.
And if they are skipping steps, that means you have to be on your game. Understand exactly where your LED lights are coming from and what it means for your safety and your product.
There are several reasons to avoid LED grow lights from ebay and amazon,but buy from Riyueguanghua, here are the six most compelling.
It’s true. Most LED grow light manufacturers employ low-quality 0.2-2 Watt LED emitters. The led efficiency is too low. These low-power lights won’t do much for you when it comes to the flowering stage.
In fact, if you’ve heard that LEDs are excellent for vegetation but poor performers when it comes to flowering, you can probably blame amazon or ebay sellers for that rumor. It’s true that your grow needs a blast of high light intensity to get the high yields you’re after. But the theory that LED lights cannot achieve that intensity is completely false. You just need top-quality LEDs like RIYUEGUANGHUA LED grow lights.
At RIYUEGUANGHUA, we use premium LEDs from Osram, Bridgelux & Samsung, the leader in LED technology. Also, we can customize LED grow lights for clients with high end Epileds chips, whose light efficiency is almost the same as Osram or Samsung. These are the most powerful single die LEDs on the market, delivering PAR light levels that are at or above the light saturation point of the most demanding plants.
This means that if you avoid amazon-selling LEDs in favor of the top-bin option, you get the best of both worlds in terms of product quality: high light intensity and spectrum variability. Which leads us to the next point . . .
When it comes to getting high yields, a potent product, and total control over the growth cycle, spectrum is everything.
Your plants absorb most of the light they need from the deep blue and deep red part of the light spectrum. The highest quality LEDs concentrate their light in those ranges, and lights like those in the SolarSystem series allow spectrum control, so you can manipulate output depending on where you are in the growth cycle.
LEDs sold on Amazon have nowhere near the same spectrum quality. These lights typically feature the kind of light colors you’d see in traffic lights or street lights. They may be advertised with grow room photos that make them look legitimate, but trust us: they do not emit the spectrum you need for a successful grow operation. Some of the LEDs are made from wrong spectrum, they achieve the spectrum just by mixing the phosphor.
But in Riyueguanghua, we all use the LEDs with right spectrum LED chips. We provide high quality fixed spectrum LED grow lights as well as variable spectrum led grow lights.
Most Amazon and Ebay sellers are not responsible for complying with foreign regulations. It is completely up to the importer to ensure that their products meet quality and safety standards. And once again, if the importing company is new to the LED lighting industry or rushing to make a quick buck off the high demand for grow lights, they are likely to overlook or outright disregard the standards that ensure a safe and effective grow operation for you.
A top-tier LED manufacturer like RIYUEGUANGHUA, on the other hand, already adheres to international LED standards and regulations, including CE, RoHS, FCC, ETL energy standards.
LEDs on Amazon and Ebay are cheaper to buy because they’re produced, well, cheaply. They’re made with inferior drivers designed to last only as long as the warranty period. When you hold amazon LED grow lights, you can feel how light they are, with questionable durability. The LED chips are often small and unstable against current variations. Many of the amazon-sold grow lights promise a lifespan of 50,000 hours but deliver far less.
For Riyueguanghua grow lights made with Osram, Samsung, Bridgelux & Epileds LEDs, we also promise a lifespan of 50,000 hours, but we make that promise with the philosophy of “Honesty is the best policy” A more accurate lifespan estimate for premium LEDs is 80,000 hours or more. The drivers we use are all UL, CE, RoHS, CB, CCC approved.
However, as we are original factory in Shenzhen. Our price is comparably much cheaper than the ones of the same quality in US & Canada.
Riyueguanghua could make the LED grow lights according to the specifications you need. (You can appoint the led chip brand as well as driver brand)
As a manufacturer,we could also print your logo on the LED grow lights.
You still have doubt about after-sales customer service? RIYUEGUANGHUA is a 9-year experienced LED light manufacturer already. Most of our clients have been cooperating with us for more than 5 years.
We can offer the replacement parts for the failed lamps. Meanwhile, we will attach the video of how to fix the failed lamps.
If the lamp can not be fixed, but it’s within the warranty period, we would also send the lamps for replacement if necessary.
