What is the difference between original PhytoMAX and the new PhytoMAX-2 LED grow lights?
We've kept all the best parts of the PhytoMAX series of lights- the complete, full spectrum from UV to IR, spread evenly over the entire footprint in order to grow all of your plants; not just ones directly under the light. The patented cooling system and fixture design are the same, as well as the safety and reliability.
In creating the PhytoMAX-2 we started by using even-quieter fans that keep the LEDs running at peak efficiency while maximizing longevity. We upgraded the LEDs to the brightest, highest-efficiency LEDs sourced from the best manufacturers in the world, including Cree, Osram, and many others. Utilizing a durable and cleanable glass primary lens on the LEDs themselves, we were able to eliminate the protective glass layer under our LEDs, allowing 100% of each LED's light to reach your plants. We increased the levels of yellow and green light just enough to make our proprietary Phyto-Genesis Spectrum® appear white to the human eye. This change made the use of color-correcting glasses unnecessary when working under the PhytoMAX-2 lights. All of this was accomplished without compromising our growth-maximizing, plant-optimized spectrum. Last but not least, the lights are now made in the USA!
These changes combine to allow PhytoMAX-2 LED grow lights to deliver over 50% more light per watt, providing unprecedented PAR levels
