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.
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.
this light is a better 3.0, Cory is a master at designing products so I already know its 5 stars and its not even out yet. plus if you buy it you automatically become a master aquatic horticulturist.
This will takeover the lighting market. Shoutout to aquarium co op for actually taking the time to produce a light that most people will enjoy
I saw the video and it sounds like just what i need and going to order as soon as they come in!
