- 3-year warranty
- Easy-to-use, in-line remote
- Highly water-resistant
The Easy Plant LED Light 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 adjust the intensity to 10 different levels to get the perfect brightness 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. The light has 10 brightness settings — from 10% to 100% brightness — and the display on the controller shows the current light intensity. (Yes, 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 at 60% 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.
Love the light. Easy to get the setting that is right for your tank. My plants are happy 😊
This is the most sturdy aquarium light I've ever used. When I first received it, I compared it to a comparable Fluval light I have on hand, and prefer the Coop light...this surprised me as Fluval has always been my go-to light over the years. You can tell the Coop light is tough...the casing is impressive. I don't think its going to bow over time like so many other lights.
It lives up to its name. It’s an easy, no frills light and it grows plants. It’s longer than a comparable light and it’s sturdier and better made. That being said, I wish that it included a simple timer (most cheap Chinese lights do that) and had options for different lighting combinations. But overall, I’m happy with my purchase.
I love the 10% increment adjustment as well as the “extreme water resistance” since the light is so close to the water in my tanks. It would be nice if some risers were included, but I don’t think I’d change anything else about it. My plants love it! The fish could take it or leave it. Also love the kelvin/color, not as in-your-face-BLUE as many aquarium lights are (looking at you cheap Amazon nano lights!)
The light generates plenty of light. I have the light setting on 60 and it lights up the whole tank.
