Viparspectra Dimmable Series PAR1200 1200W LED Grow Light review : Basic info about the product
This model also comes with a full spectrum ability, and perfect control over the blue, red, and white light. This grow light is capable of bracing all growth stages of your plants. This one is outstandingly powerful and has brought joy to a big percentage of its users. Most importantly, this light is dimmable, by which we mean that you can decrease the intensity and output of light whenever you want.
Besides that, you find very less grow lights, which look this much attractive and modern. You can surely show it off to your friends and also make them feel jealous. It looks much more expensive by looks I comparison to what actually you are paying for it. Now let us reveal the features now.
LED durability? No doubt!
A total of 240 pieces of 5W LED chips are used in constructing Viparspectra Dimmable Series PAR1200 1200W LED Grow Light. When we talk about the durability, then let us add to your knowledge, that you never need to worry about the durability of any LED grow light of Viparspectra, as they always use top quality building materials, especially the LED chips. Same is with this model.
Full spectrum of lights and dimming switches
You already expect a grow light of this level, to provide your plants with full spectrum. Here, 12 bands spectrum is what you are getting with this dimmable model. This spectrum incapable of increasing the quality by growing bigger size flowers which are quite dense and fully loaded with resin.
There are two dimmable switches present in this grow light. One is for spectrum, and the other one is for the intensity of light. During the various phases of growth, you can utilize these switches as per need and convenience.
New cooling system
For the very first time, you are going to see it with the Viparspectra grow lights, that the fans are placed on the front side of the grow light, instead of the back. Revolutionary aluminum cooling heat sinks along with 5 high-speed silent front-fans together make the heat dissipation system of this grow light — no high noise issue.
This heat dissipation system doesn’t only put away the heat and secure your plants, but also give a unique, attractive look to the model.
Brilliant PAR value
This grow light delights you deeply with its PAR output. At 24 inches, 1020 umols is what you are getting, and from 18 inches, you get 1120 umols. Those numbers clearly indicate how powerful this grow light is. If you decrease the height even more further, the PAR value is going to increase accordingly. We have provided you with a diagram to explain the same thing, in a better way.
Viparspectra Dimmable Series PAR1200 1200W LED Grow Light review : Specs
19.7 x 17.3 x 3.5 inches are the dimensions of this grow light, and the weight is 27.5 pounds. Input Voltage is AC100-240V and frequency is 50-60Hz. The lens angle is 90 degrees, as usually, you get with most of the models of this company. 100,000 hours is the lifespan estimation. When you buy this grow light, you get a power cord, user instructions, and hanging kits along with.
You get a 3 years standard Viparspectra warranty and a 30 days money back guarantee as well. Following are some more specs of Viparspectra Dimmable Series PAR1200 1200W LED Grow Light.
Actual power draw and HPS replacing capability
These two things determine how beneficial you are going to be in the long term. Suppose a grow light is coming your home at the rate of sands, but it sucks high power from the wall, then you are going to suffer a lot. Who likes high electricity bills? No one!
No need to worry, no such issue will arise with this model, as it sucks only 527W from the wall. That is not the average, that was the max level. If you use the dimmable switches, definitely it is going to suck even less power. This model has the ability to replace a 1000 Watt HPS/MG light system. Very powerful!
See guys; this one is not a reflector model. It is a different model, so the grow area is not calculated from the same height at which we calculate it with reflector series models. Here, we calculate the coverage area for the veg stage from 40 inches, which is 4 x 4 feet, while the bloom stage we calculate from 36 inches height, and from there, you get a coverage area that measures 3.5 x 3.5 feet.
Later on, we will be explaining you regarding the height placements for various stages in the same review.
Viparspectra Dimmable Series PAR1200 1200W LED Grow Light review : A quick FAQ round
This portion was a “must add” for this review, as all of you must not be that clear with this model’s function. We know you are sitting with a lot of questions in your mind. We are here to make you familiar with certain things, which you definitely must be knowing. Heedfully read this whole FAQ section.
Can you provide info regarding to the heights of placement for various stages, and use of the switches?
We have explained these things through a convenient chart. That is probably the effortless way to explain, as well as understand.
Why are Veg and Bloom switches not present?
The dimmer switches are present instead. These are more convenient, and the margin or error is also low for you. Advanced level growers are going to enjoy it, but if you are a beginner, you need a bit of guidance in the usage of these switches — not a tough thing to understand though. You just have to get used to. You will get an idea even after reading the chart properly, that we just mentioned above.
Are the PAR values mentioned by the company authentic? My device reads less than that.
Yes, the numbers are authentic and are provided you after proper testing only. No need to worry. If your device is reading something else, then maybe your LED is running on either of the switches. Even if it is wrong, then you can return the product with the help of the warranty, and get a new one.
Does it come with a hanger?
Can you explain what doe sit mean by dimming two spectrums?
Yes, that means that you can either dim the red light or the blue light and hence, control the spectrum as per the need of the plant that you are growing and growth stage of that plant.
Does it emit UV?
No, it doesn’t. Although it is providing you with a 12 band full spectrum, that has IR and white light, not UV. That is not going to affect at all, as we have come across results without any need for UV.
What all things are worth complaining in this grow light?
First of all, the beginners are going to feel a bit inconvenient in operating the dimmable switches. In veg and bloom switches, the lights get adjusted just by turning ON the switch, but here, you will have to control the lights accordingly manually. So, those, who are not having much experience or knowledge, they need guidance.
The other thing to concern is its price. The price of this model is a bit higher than the Reflector model of same Watt. Not only that, the price is higher than the competitors as well. The hanger that comes with the product doesn’t seem efficient enough to hold on the total weight of the grow light, so you need to buy an additional one.
The instructions are provided with the product, but they are not clear enough and easily understandable. We feel that the company must have provided proper instruction and guidance, which would have made things easy to learn.
What do the users of Viparspectra Dimmable Series PAR1200 1200W LED Grow Light say?
103 reviews are there on Amazon, and its ratings are 4.6 stars out of five. That means a lot. If the grow light has touched the 92% success rate, then it clearly indicates how capable the grow light is. It has provided with great weed yields. Marijuana flowers were full of resin. Tomatoes were great. Everything was fine and fantastic.
Now we come to the complainers. A manufacturing defect was the only topic to complain about them. No one had any other issue. So, that means the grow light functions perfectly.
