High Pressure Sodium (HPS) vs Light Emitting Diodes (LED)

It’s inevitable, once you begin growing, you’ll eventually wade into the controversial debate of which grow light is best. Let us show you why our LED technology is the obvious choice for any size growing operation.

Traditional HPS Light

High pressure sodium grow lights have been the driving force behind indoor cultivation for decades, but with the advent of new LED technology, they are beginning to lose market share.

Power Consumption

Traditional high pressure sodium lights use 1000 watts of power

Bulb Life

High pressure sodium light bulbs need to be replaced every 6 months to ensure optimal efficiency

EGX4 330W LED Light

LED growing lights are much more power efficient than their HPS counterparts, and offer at least a 1 to 1 replacement. The EGX4 330W replaces 1 HPS light

Our EGX4 uses less than 1/3 of the equivalent high pressure sodium light system

Diode Life

Our LED lights are guaranteed for 5 years or 50,000 hours of operation

Here is a direct comparison between our EGX4 and a traditional high pressure sodium light.

We compared 7 weeks of growth using an HPS light and our EGX4 330W LED grow light.
