- 3-year warranty
- Easy-to-use, in-line remote
- Highly water-resistant
The Easy Plant LED was designed to be easy, while also being affordable and long-lasting. This was no easy task as we had to evaluate every feature to make sure it justified its cost.
We started by giving it a 3-year warranty. This meant every feature afterwards had to lend itself to longevity. We made it HIGHLY water-resistant. One of the main ways lights go bad is from water, whether it's from being knocked in or it's getting sprayed with water from an air stone. Plus, our light has the ETL certification, which covers the UL listing, CSA listing, and several other North American safety standards.
How powerful is it? We wanted a light that was bright, grew plants, and made fish look great. However, it needed to work on aquariums of any size. So we made it adjustable. You can dim the light down. At its brightest, it has the most light output of any light we've ever sold. However, you can dim it down 6 levels to get the perfect level for your aquarium.
With it being so bright, does it get hot? It does get warm, but we paired efficient LEDs with an efficient ballast. We also redesigned the housing to be more robust and dissipate heat better. You'll see competing lights that are 10% to 50% less efficient. This adds up to more heat and more money spent to get the light your plants need.
Next up was making it easy to use. Therefore, we purposely made a simple, in-line remote with limited options. It has a mode button that cycles between on, off, and night time mode. Then, there are two buttons for up and down to adjust how bright the light is. (Yep, it saves its settings in a power outage or when using a timer.) This means you can share your settings with others easily. "My 20-gallon tank uses the Easy Plant LED at level 3 and I've been growing these plants.
Does it have sunrise/sunset mode? Can I change the individual LEDs? These features didn't make the cut. The price increase and loss in efficiency in the LEDs didn't make sense when achieving our goals of the best possible light that lasts a long time while remaining affordable.
My first Co-op light, love the low profile, you don't have light glaring in your eyes while viewing the aquarium, love the different light intensity settings, finally a light I can get just right, plan on buying more and the long cord is going to make it easy to run multiple lights on a single timer.
This light was so easy to set up without the use of apps and other features I that I feel overcomplicate other lights. The 48” has great light coverage even on setting 3 for my 90 gal. Seems like a very high quality light overall.
Aquarium Co-Op Easy Plant LED
I ordered this light because of the way they test and retest all the products before unleashing them to the public. That inturn gives us great products. This light is no exception. The wow came out the moment I turned it on. Love it. Will be replacing all my lights with these.
