Universal Series


The Universal Series of lights has been discontinued, replaced by the new and improved PhytoMAX LED grow lights!

Black Dog LED’s Universal Series of plant grow lights redefined expectations for yield and quality in indoor/greenhouse agriculture. The Universal Series of 5w LED grow lights were absolutely the most powerful grow lights, watt for watt and chip for chip, in the world while they were offered. No longer do you need to settle for low power 1w and 3w lights that use an “X-lens” to focus weak LEDs on a small footprint. The Universal Series is made up of the most advanced LED grow lights designed by the most innovative, proven, and research-driven company in the grow light industry. With more power, higher wattage, and greater penetration, the BDL Universal Series guarantees that your plants will be healthier and happier than ever before.

The original Black Dog LED series contained the most powerful and innovative 3w single diode LED plant grow lights in the industry at that time. Over the years, we have devoted thousands of hours to research in order to improve and develop the original series into the perfect flowering spectrum. As is often the case in life, when you improve and grow, you begin to outgrow your shell. To take advantage of the newest advancements in LED technology, we too outgrew our original housing and design. This sent us back to the drawing board to create the best LED grow light possible—one that comprised all of our research and experience to date.

We were pleased to offer the Universal Series: the finest grow lights in the world at the time, providing unsurpassed quality and higher yields than ever before. Their larger size and heavier weight is due to oversized, industry-leading heat sinks, which were necessary to create better airflow and ultimately, the ideal amount of heat dissipation. Don’t you want to know what we packed into a housing with over 200% more interior volume? Let your imagination run wild when you lift the new Platinum XL-U, which tips the scales at 47 pounds!

Thought the best couldn't get any better? Check out the design elements included in the Universal Series grow lights:

  • All High Output 5 watt LEDs
  • Exclusive square housing for larger, uniform footprint, providing better coverage of industry-standard square grow trays and flood tables
  • Interior volume added to housing for improved thermal dissipation
  • BDL's proprietary full-cycle Phyto-Genesis Spectrum™, which eliminates the need for separate vegetative and flowering grow lights
  • Improved fan design, combining better airflow and lifetime with reduced noise and vibration
  • All lights now accept an international range of voltage inputs
  • Thermostatic cut-off regulator
  • Largest heat sink in the industry

Not only does Black Dog LED have the highest PAR values, largest footprints, and most reliable and highest quality lights available in the grow light industry, all Black Dog LED lights, including the Universal Series, come with a Limited Lifetime Warranty.
