Mammoth Size, Professional Grade, 400 watt HPS & Metal Halide Switchable Grow Light Really Pounds Out the Light!It’s Because Bigger Really is Better! And weoffer the biggest hoods for the Expert Grower!(Reflector dimension is 3 ft x 1.5 ft x 6 inches!)Get the most light for the dollar from us!And it's New!It's priced so low! How much money will you lose trying to fix a "discarded" light that someone "refurbished" into a "new" grow-light when it blows out? You wouldn’t buy used spark plugs, would you?…. So why buy a discarded light fixture that someone “refurbished” into a grow light?Features:It features High Blue Content Metal Halide Conversion bulb that’s best for Vegetative Growth and High Red Light Content HPS for Budding and Flowering!Plants most efficiently use red light for photosynthesis. (Plants are green because they reflect green light back!) The deep orange light of the HPS lamp contains plenty of nutritious red light. Plants can almost as efficiently use blue light. And in the early growth stages, the blue light of the metal halide bulb is imperative for natural vigorous growth.HPS bulbs usually make more light energy than metal halide (MH) lamps. However, the orange HPS (identical to street light) spectrum is defective so that it produces unnatural lanky growth. On the other hand, natural white light metal halides produce lush compact growth with lots of leaves. So a good strategy is to start under metal halide until the plant is nearly fully grown. Then you switch to the higher light energy HPS bulb for budding, flowering, and fruiting.It’s Cool. Weoffer a totally different type of reflector that does not produce hot spots. Our engineered reflector directs light straight down with out focusing it to a line. Plus, because our reflector is so much more efficient, you don’t have to have the hot bulb so close to the plants.It’s Shiny! not HammeredLook at cheap reflectors on the internet, and you that they use beat up, distressed, Hammer tone aluminum. They need to use this inferior “hammertone” finish because their conventional batwing style reflector would put burning hot strips on the floor. Inferior “hammertone” reflectors randomly scatter light, trapping light inside the reflector with multiple internal reflections. We have designed non imagining reflectors. Our reflectors shoot light down, but at many different angles. So we don‘t have problems with reflector “kinks“ causing burning striations. Therefore we can use nice smooth shiny highly reflective materials. Our reflector lets the light out with 1 or at most 2 bounces. It’s the Brightest of All because it’s aFULL HOOD! With generous side and end deflectors, our super output excellent hood delivers more light than those crummy open ended batwings, or the lights with boxed in non-slanted ends. (See diagrams at left) The competitor’s substandard reflectors waste your light by shining it on your walls, not the plants.Depending on number of fixtures installed, our super output fixture delivers 50% to 97% more usable light than substandard fixtures. Our deflectors are scientifically slanted to deflect light straight down on the plants in a single bounce!Please: DON’T TRAP YOUR LIGHT IN A BOX! Box shaped lights with vertical (non slanted) end panels trap light. That’s why we designed slanted end panels to give you most light possible (Details Later) And our reflectors have no sharp corners that can trap light. Remember: More Light = More Growth. Also: More Usable Light per fixture = Fewer and/or Lower wattage fixtures required = Electrical Savings.Compare our excellent light to the “batwing” or “shoebox” lights that some people hawk and you will see why our reflector gives you 50% or more light for the money:Batwings are for Bats! NOT Plants!Look at the grow "lights" that are being cobbled together and sold here. Most of them have open ends. Light flies out the ends of these “batwings”and hits your walls. What a waste! Do you want to light up your room or do you need to feed your plants with light? Here’s the critical and costly error that others make: They act like light only comes off the side of a bulb. Light actually comes off of each portion of a light bulb in all possible directions. The truth is our competitors have really blown it. They need to think in 3 dimensions. The electric arc inside of an HPS or Metal Halide lamp emits light in all possible directions as shown in the picture. That’s why we offerour large, multi-faceted hoods to fully enclose the bulb. It’s what's required to fully capture and redirect light down on your plants. Low end fixtures are made by just bending corrugated aluminum in a hump. Light will fly right out the open ends over the tops of the plants. What a waste! Are you trying to light up your plants or the wall? If you want to grow plants, use our reflectors, not crummy open ended ones. Shoe boxes are for shoes!Other lights are built like shoe boxes. That is the ends are boxed in with flat vertical end panels. As shown on the diagram at the side, light bounces back and forth between the end panels, losing intensity with each bounce. The optical efficiency of these shoe box lights is terrible! The best shoe box light I could find still loses 22% of the light internally. The worst photometric report I’ve ever seen showed just under a 50% loss.Don’t Box Your Light In! The truth is that our products are truly engineered and give premium performance. They are not just slapped together by a guy in China. A common feature of the Chinese products our competitors markup and resell is that they use a cheaper manufacturing technique. This technique forces part of the reflector walls to be vertical. That is the fixture they are importing is a “shoebox” light. And as I just described and as just shown on the diagrams to the left, this wrecks the fixture’s optical efficiency.There are certain slopes that reflectors must have to direct light down. Otherwise, the light flies over the tops of the plants and hits the walls. An incorrectly sloped reflector may reflect light from some, but not all angles . On the other hand, our products have uniformly sloped end and side walls. So our fixtures don’t trap light like a shoe box.Our Reflectors have no corners to trap light!Sharp corners can kill light. Our Mammoth reflector is unique in the industry, in that the side and end reflectors don’t make a sharp corner. There is a nice smooth transition that prevents light from making extra bounces to get out of the reflector.Our Flat Top Reflector Beats those with “V” Bends. We also work hard tooffer the most efficient fixtures, even if we can only add half a percent to your reflector’s optical efficiency. The “V” creases put into nearly everyone else’s reflectors actually cause more harm than good. That’s why our the tops of our reflectors are flat. (We discuss this issue at length under the section titled grow light myths.)Our Mammoth Reflector is still the Best on eCRATER!When we first introduced the Super Output multi-side reflectors to eCRATER, we pointed out the deficiencies of our competitors open-ended reflectors that waste electricity by letting light fly out the open ends. Light hits your walls instead of onto your plants.To help you understand the physics of light reflection, we’ve reproduced accurate, to scale diagrams that show exactly how light bounces. (The writer is a bona fide engineer with a masters degree.) We want to give you good information all of the time. We want you to be able to trust us. SpecificationsMAMMOTH REFLECTOR HOOD: 3 Feet Long X 18 inches wide! This is the secret: The larger reflector, the easier it is to capture light that would be wasted lighting up your ceilings and walls. This otherwise wasted light is redirected down on your plants. The reflector has 9 facets that capture and redirect the light shed off of the bulb.The reflector is made of lighting grade anodized high reflectivity aluminum - not a laminated product that can peel. Total reflectivity is 95%. It is so shiny that you can see your reflection, just like a mirror. This is what the real lighting grade specular aluminum looks like. It’s not dull sheet aluminum. Be careful: without treatment, aluminum is not very reflective- as low as 30%.We are not taking used, scrapped lights out of a factory, cleaning them and calling them “refurbished”. You are getting a brand new, factory made fixture which includes:New Ballast, Igniter, Capacitor. All three electrical components are new, not half worn out.Quality Capacitor A quality high temperature dry capacitor is used, not an oil filled one that can leak.The capacitor is very large 1.75" by 4.87" so it can easily dissipate heat. There are cheap mini-capacitors that maybe called "high temperature", but because they are so small, they actually heat up enough to exceed their ratings. Tricky offshore manufacturers often take two such small capacitors and put them in a big case. Not so here, this is a solid capacitor all the way through.Better, High Efficiency Ballast The Low Heat S51 400 watt HPS Core (Generates the same light but uses 5 watts less energy than competitive ballasts) This ballast’s laminations are vacuum impregnated with insulation to optimize cooling and generate about lowest sound rating in the industry. Cheaper cores are just slopped full of orange varnish that’s prone to have air bubbles.Reliable Igniter High Temperature (105 C) igniter is the big bottle type, not the little bolt on type that can cause problems.NewSocket. Not something used pulled out of the scrap heap. So the socket is sure to be good.Remote Mounting Hardware. The giant reflector hangs from chain bails. An approximate 10’ power supply cord connects the ballast enclosure to the reflector. There are two reasons to use a remotely mounted ballast: (1) It’s easier to hang a lightweight reflector, and (2) The heat
