SolarSystem® UVB Kit

UVB lights.

I havent had a chance to use them yet but one of the bulbs is very loose on one end where the end cap is connected but still lights up. It is a little concerning safety wise though. Also shortly after delivery Fed Ex sent me bill for $ 98.00 .

Love this light

I grow cacti and succulents in the northeast USA. These lights do wonders to keep everyone happy all winter long. I have several and they work well. I raise them up or turn them off when its summer and lower them when its winter. Highly recommend.

Happy customer

Great service.. Was happy with have fast and easy it was to get this nice American made light!

look no further!

I brought my first 550 5 months ago with the control.This light is the best and the blueprint will cover the full spectrum of a 4X4 in Veg.
I brought another set of 550 and
I daisy chainrd both off one controller.California Light Works personally helped me daisy Chain my set up..5 Starsfor Customer service..

The 550 has been upgraded by 5%,So if you brought the 550 a year ago and need another set.Dont be surprised if you think the lights look different then the ones you currently have.
The human eye can't see the 5% but you will notice a slightly different look once you compare them to the new 550.

I just bought another controller and will always use California Lights Works..

You can control the light from controller and control your grow to get the perfect Frosty Flower look.

I have 8 grows under my belt now and was Successful The lights played a huge roll in my grow..

They might be pricy but worth every dollar..

Great set up

It is in my "special projects" tent. A 2.7x5x6.5 and it has awesome coverage from veg through bloom. Can't wait to see if the UVB "wings" help the oil production in those last couple weeks of bloom.

Wonderful

Great Light that has worked wonders on my "special projects" tent. I needed something consistent that would keep things bright. I use it in my 2.7x5x6.5 tent. Fits perfect in that odd size tent. Handles heat well too. I can veg and then bloom with it all in one tent. I got the UVB "wings" too. Jury is out on those still. Once I put the girls to flower, we will see if those work we'll or not.

$50+ after shipping

Kinda expensive you think? Capitalism getting to you CLW?

Those hats are made to order and drop shipped by a third party.

Stress for Trichs

This light provides a potent exposure to uvb. Started with 2 hours daily in the center of a 12 hr light cycle. Currently only requiring 30 mins a day to prevent over exposure. The trich production is noticeably more. Good price for the light.

🤷‍♂️

I really can’t give you much here. I’m only on my 3rd crop ever and just introduced the light. I can say my first two grows were complete shit shows trying to figure this out lol I did finally find some really good genetics for this grow so I’m not sure if it’s the better genetics and the addition of a Mars hydro FC6500 or the introduction of this light but this crop is dank as hell and seems to have gotten dank since the installing the UVB but I have no way of being certain. I’m certainly not unplugging it though hahahaha I believe it helps and that’s good enough for me.

I bought this light for my 3x3 tent around Christmas 2020. I am currently on my 3rd grow with it. I have had great results using it from seed to harvest. The flowers that have been produced have been top shelf. I am very happy with my purchase and can’t wait for my next harvest! Thank you California Lightworks!

Plug and play

I already owned one of these and the controller, so all I had to do to add this one in was plug in the power cord and the little phone cable. And I could add up to eight more if I wanted. They are pricey but worth every penny.

$ Well spent

Plants are in heaven. Using the 1100uvb in a 5x5 tent and the coverage is more than adequate. The controller seems to be essential, although I have no comparison.. If you have been on the fence about making this purchase.. do it. Zero regrets and I'm anxiously awaiting the final results of my first grow with this light. Literally counting the days until I fire up the UVB.

Extreme 500 and Extreme 250

Currently own 2 Extreme 250’s and 1 Extreme 500. Love them all. On my 4th grow with the 250’s and first with the 500. Running a 2.5ft x 5ft tent and love the results. I was running both 250’s in the tent with good results but now have changed out one of the 250’s with the 500 for flowering and the girls are loving the set up. Moved the extra 250 to a 2x2 tent I use for starting plants for my other tent and my outdoor garden. Quality lighting with outstanding craftsmanship and made in USA. Well worth the money.

great light system.

love this system.replaced four 1500 king lights with this.

Put one in the top corner of my 4 x 4 tent about two weeks ago. I have a solar extreme 500 in the middle. Plants closest to the UVB bulb getting more trycomes and my Pineapple Express is turning dark purple. Shit looks dank! I want to get another one for the other side of my tent but coverage is going to be difficult with the filter and blower in the way..

Happy.

Put the light in right before a final transplant and plants responded very well. Very happy with the performance so far. Start flowering in a week. Wish I had the money for another.

Noticeable difference

There is a noticeable difference in the amount of frost vs an identical run without UVB supplementation. Worth the money, can't comment on terps just yet but getting pungent in week 6 so I believe this will be noticeable as well.

Makes the difference

the light fixture itself is really light which kinda rubbed me the wrong way a little. I’ve only had it for 3 weeks and have been using it the past two weeks and I can honestly say a little goes a long way! Using it once a day for 15 minutes first week, 25 minutes this past week. The amount of frost on my plants are the most I’ve ever had, the smell I also noticed much more pungent, buds are swelling thicker not necessarily a ton bigger but def more dense. Buy it! It’s worth it.

USB KIT

I chose to hang the two USB lights on each side separate from the Solarxtreme 500 in my 3x3 tent to get them as high as possible. The SE 500 is 18" from the majority of the canopy. The USB lights are 20" from 6 tops and 24" to 26" above the rest.
I started them one day before week 6 of flower at only two 10min exposures and worked up to six 10min on and 20min off times over the next five days. In the middle of the 12/12 cycle for a total of 60min exposure.
Next I changed to 15min on/30min off for a total of 90min exposure for one day. Then added two more 15min times for a total of 120min=2hrs. The next day.
They have shown a huge increase in trichrome production starting after only a few days of exposure! I am planning to change once more to 20min on 40min off for six cycles= Still 2hr total.
I highly recommend these, very glad I decided to go for it! This is my first grow so I have been extra cautious using these with the incredible results I was already getting with the SE500. But the UVB lights have showered my girls with Diamonds!!!
Thanks California Lightworks!!!

My plants love this light wish I would have got it sooner thanks California light works

Probably will use for life

I am a combat veteran, and cultivating has been a key part of my recovery. I started with a solarx 500 I now have two, and a solar extreme 1000. My production has always been top notch and lighting is worry free. I attribute my California light works LED for the peace I have found.
