- 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.
Good light. Excellent illumination
I must I really love this new light. The controls are very easy to understand and use. Excellent plant light. I will be purchasing these again as I need them.
I bought this light for my first foray into aquarium and fish keeping, and it's a really lovely light. I'm thankful that it has a dimming function as the highest setting is a bit too strong for my 20 gallon, and I only keep medium/low light plants. The light is powerful, sleek, and my plants have grown inches in just a couple months!
I only wish it would gradually turn on the way it gradually turns off!
Oh my goodness! I just got my light and what a difference! I originally bought a cheep light hood combo for about 30 dollars cause I didn;t know what a difference a good light could make. After listening to Cory for a year I decided it was time to change to a glass lid and a good light. I am AMAZED at how much better everything looks! even my sister was amazed and she doesn't do fish LOL
thank you Cory and your awesome team!! I am in love with this light!!
