NextLight Veg8 Switch 190W LED Grow Light

Replaces your 8 Tube T5

The Veg8 Switch is designed to efficiently replace a fluorescent 8 tube T5. This unit uses half the power, produces minimal heat and is silent. The Veg8 Switch only draws 190 watts (or 60 watts), covers a 2 ft x 4 ft veg footprint and eliminates the need to ever change a bulb again.

This bright white LED grow light is designed to meet the needs of commercial and home growers alike. We understand excessive power consumption, bulb replacements and heat are the biggest problems indoor growers face. The NextLight Commercial Series alleviates all of those issues.

NextLight Full Spectrum LED

NextLight fixtures emit a full spectrum, bright white light which is more sun-like than even your traditional HPS. Using this spectrum you can expect tighter internodal spacing and better overall quality.

Contrary to popular beliefs of the past, NextLight continued to pioneer the use of bright white, full spectrum LED, which has now become the gold standard of grow lighting.

NextLight's Full Spectrum is easy to work under and provides the same sun-like qualities plants love without the negatives of high energy requirements and high heat.
