The SolarXtreme 250 is one of our easiest to use full-spectrum LED grow lights. Designed especially for grow tents and smaller scale home growing, this low-power grow light system draws just 200 watts with a maximum current of 1.6 amps at 120 volts.
The SolarXtreme series features a COB (chip on board) design and utilizes a direct AC drive, so LED drivers are not needed. This enables high-efficiency LEDs to be used, at a much lower cost than traditional LEDs. Users, therefore, benefit from full-spectrum grow lights that accommodate all stages of plant growth and flowering for many types of indoor plants, vegetables, and flowers. No adjustments are needed during the growing cycle.
Our horticultural LED lights have been developed based on years of research and knowledge of photosynthesis and biological processes. The SolarXtreme 250 represents a convenient innovation in indoor LED grow lights suited for smaller cultivations and users who wish to conserve on power draw.
Good light for a little small set up I have 3 of these wish the cord was longer . Can hang it high or low is the main plus about it
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!
I have the solarxtreme 500 for flowering and I use the solarxtreme 250 for vegetation. These lights are great thank you California LightWorks
Nice light. Using since arrived.
I had this initially in a 3 x 3 tent four clones and short vegetation. I have since moved it out of the 3 x 3 and put it in a 5 x 5 alongside a solar stream 500 it is the perfect light for the perfect price
[Includes edits] This is the first light I purchased, upgraded during flower of my second grow because of lack of results [and I saw improvements immediately]. [Overall, the flowers were airy, and took a very long time to mature/ripen]. Just tested it with a new PAR meter to see if I could give more space to some flowering plants. At [the recommended flowering height of] 12”, we are looking at [edit: 547 PPFD] directly centered under the light. [At 9" from the light, I hit 860 dead center, with PPFD of less than 500 after about 5 inches from center.] 2.5’x2.5’ is appropriate for veg area, and the light does a decent job in veg overall, but flowering I’d say stay within the 8.5”x8.5” frame of the light (roughly 1/2 sq foot).
Thank you for your feedback. Many growers have gotten great results from start to finish with the SolarXtreme 250 in a 3' x 3' grow tent, which is what this light is designed for. You didn't mention what your results in flower were like, only that your PAR meter was reading 700 at 12'. It's important to understand that PAR meters are directional, so they're not reading all photons hitting a surface from all angles. It's also important to know that the SolarXtreme series has a very wide beam angle, so coverage definitely goes beyond the size of the fixture itself. Assuming you're using this light in a grow tent, light is bouncing off the reflective walls, sending photons back to your plants from angles that are not readable by your PAR meter when facing it toward the light. Regardless, we want to make sure that you're getting a good value from our product, like so many other growers. Please reach out to us if you need assistance and we'll always be happy to help. Thanks you for your support!
Substantial difference between prior light and solar extreme 250. Hobby grow but strong results. Will update after flower.
This light has made such a difference in my garden. Given their full spectrum LED setup, they provide optimal lighting for all stages. When paired with a simple programmer they work phenomenally! I’m currently growing in a smaller grow space then I would like, so running 2 of the SolarExtreme 250 lights is working out perfectly. They don’t emit much heat, so maintaining temp is easy. Only big tip is make sure to pay attention to hanging height, plants grow very quick and if they’re too close to light for too long your leaves will curl. If you’re just starting growing, or are growing in a limited space, the SolarExtreme 250 is a must have!
This company is top notch!!!! Everything they say about this light is the absolute truth. This is my second purchase. I will never buy another brand of led other then California lightworks,superior to all. Do yourself a favor and get this light!!!!!
love this company, love their lights, I am sure that their customer service (like their products ) is outstanding, but since I have never had a problem, at all, I have never had to contact them! , I just use their amazing products, have amazing results, and am very thankful for grade A companies like this. With normal care, these lamps last a long time, way longer than the price that you pay (i.e the yields> cost of operating light(s) and purchase cost) . I do not buy any other lamps, I trust this company, made in USA, great , beautiful light, plants respond very happily, and the pricing/shipping/everything is GRADE A . THANK YOU
