LEDs have existed for almost 50 years, but until recently, they lacked the light output and energy efficiency necessary to make them a viable alternative to traditional lighting solutions. Since 2008, the lumen output per watt of LEDs has doubled, and the best LEDs are now on par with HID lights in terms of lumens/watt with one exception, they are far more efficient. The most important wave lengths for plant growth and flowering are found at the 420nm, 450nm, 630nm, and 660nm wavelengths. Red is more important for flowering and yields, and blue more important for node intervals and faster growth and absorption. We deliver these wavelengths, scientifically balanced for maximum efficiency. What once was 70% of light wasted is now light harvested. Skunk LEDs use an optimized blend of 60 degree, 90 degree, and 120 degree leD chips. In the configuration we have designed, light coverage for the grow area is maximized and light penetration is increased when compared to lights using a single spread angle LED light. In response to the increased demand for a higher power LED light, we have recently developed the Skunk label of LED grow lights. Our elite line uses only the highest quality components. The Skunk line was engineered from the ground up based on feedback from our customers on the most needed light output values for your growing footprint. Using custom encapsulated chipsets, we are proud to offer 3w leDs in the Skunk product line.
