Roleadro GalaxyHydro Series 1000W LED grow light review : Basic info about the product
When we are talking about the 1000W LED grow light models, then the one, which is the most promising, and stands the tallest in the competition, is none other than GalaxyHydro Series 1000W LED grow light. Whether you talk about features, perfection, customer reviews, satisfaction rate, trend, sales, etc. This is the one, which we can call the best from the rest.
We used a lot of positive words there, but that doesn’t mean that is grow light is not having nay downstairs. Surely there are, but yes, we agree, few in numbers. We will be explaining everything about this 1000W model one by one, starting from the features.
This grow light is so much success and receiving love from grower all over because it doesn’t give you any chance to complain regarding features. Yes, everything you need as a grower is present. Following are the features:
Unique LED Bead and Zener Design
The makers have used the zener design instead of the reflector for bringing you convenience in cases, where a few LED bulbs run out, and affect the whole unit. With zener design, even if some bulbs stop functioning, the other LED bulbs are not going to bother at all. They will keep working the way they were — no need to agonize about the durability either. By the way, there are 100 chips, 10W each.
Full spectrum of lights
The perfect growth of your plants is not possible without a perfect full spectrum of light. As we humans need protein, vitamin, carbs, fat, etc. the plants need various frequencies of light. If anything is missing, it affects the overall growth. Here, with this one, you are getting such a perfectly blended spectrum, that is going to support your plant’s whole life cycle and bring you the perfect yield at the end. Most importantly, both IR and UV are present.
Decent cooling system
There is always a very big responsibly on the shoulders of the cooling system of all grow lights. A small issue with the cooling system and the plants are going to burn. All hard work drown in water, or we can say burnt!
Normally you get 4-5 cooling fans with most of the 1000W models, but this one comes with just a couple of them. But the number doesn’t matter, the efficiency matters. These fans are ETL approved, and there are aluminum heat sinks present in support of these fans, to make heat dissipation possible, with a 20-30% more speed than normal. Don’t worry; these fans are entirely noiseless.
When you come across the numbers of PAR output of this model, you will be surprised. Just 453 umols at 18 inches! We have reviewed some 300W and 450W models, which were having better PAR output than that. If we compare this grow light with other similar type models when it stands nowhere in the comparison reading the PAR output. Anyways, this light has been highly triumphant in providing desired results, and that matter over anything else.
Roleadro GalaxyHydro Series 1000W LED grow light review : Specs
In dimensions, this model measures 12.1 x 8.2 x 2.4 inches, and the weight is 4.74 pounds. Working Voltage is AC100~240V. The Frequency is 50/60 HZ. The lifespan is estimated near to 50,000 hours. The LED angles are 90 and 120 degrees. You get hanging kits, a power cord and a guiding pamphlet with this item in the package.
You enjoy a 30 months warranty with this model of Roleadro. You can use this warranty for free replacement and repair of your LED grow light. Most importantly, these grow light come your home already tested, so if any issue is there in the item, the item is not delivered to your home. If you receive a broken unit, then surely that is the transportation issue.
Actual power draw and HPS replacing capability
You are going to jump in joy after hearing about the actual power draw of this 1000W model. 132w±5% it is. We have not tested any other 1000W LED model yet, which was such a big energy saver. It is outstanding! Who doesn’t like to save electricity bills? Besides that, the HPS replacing capability is also good. 400W HPS lamp is what it is able to replace efficiently.
Now, the coverage area is a thing where it has not satisfied at all. You are getting a core coverage area of 2′ x 2′. The core coverage area is what we calculate from a height of 18 inches, better called the bloom coverage. From 24 inches, we measure the max coverage, which is also called the veg coverage. 3′ x 3′ is what you get as your max coverage. That is pretty limited.
Roleadro GalaxyHydro Series 1000W LED grow light review : A quick FAQ round
Although you know about all technical specialties and features, the FAQ round is never a part to skip. We had hidden much here, that we came across during the testing of this 1000W model. You can get some precious knowledge by reading this particular portion of our review. So, let us proceed. Shall we?
I do not want to grow cannabis. What else can I grow?
You can grow a lot of things such as tomatoes, reddish, peppers, carrot, potatoes, jalapenos, etc. we received a decent yield of all that we mentioned. But this grow light is not powerful enough to support aquatic plants.
Is it really a 1000W led? specs and features indicate something else.
The Watts mentioned in the title come from the total number of chips multiplied by the watt. 100 chips x 5W=1000W. By the way, it is a 300W if we go deep. What did you think? Are you going to get a real 1000W LED for less than $100? Not possible.
My leaves burnt! What are the reasons? Any solutions?
This happens only because you decreased the height of the LED much more than normal. Hence, your plants were not able to tolerate. Especially during the veg stage, you need to keep the height 24 inches, and if you want to decrease, then decreases week by week slowly, with proper tracking at the same time.
How loud are the fans?
These fans are actually very quiet. We can explain the best by comparing, so you get an idea. These are as quiet as the AC in your car, or the pump in your aquarium.
Is is daisy-chainable?
This grow light can’t make the daisy chain. You can use it at the end of daisy chaining lights. That is possible, with the help of the cable, that already comes with it.
What do the users of Roleadro GalaxyHydro Series 1000W LED grow light say? What are the cons?
On Amazon, a total of 1,118 users have written reviews, and given it 4.5/5 stars collectively. Not that is a huge number. The trend of a product is only possible when it satisfies the users. The sales and demand, both are too high, that means it has been highly successful in pleasing its users to the deepest. As a result, you will find everyone recommending it. It was the positive side, now let us move towards the negative side.
First of all, the daisy chaining feature does not come with this light. The coverage area is another issue. It is just for the beginners, who are happy with just two or three plants. Maximum four plants, not more than that. So, you are quite limited. Although this grow light offers full spectrum, which isn’t deficient of anything, but it is a fact that you cannot control this spectrum according to your need.
