The SolarStorm 880 is the most powerful LED grow light on the market. It features 176 high-power 5-watt LED emitters for a total nominal power of 880 watts (176 x 5). The SolarStorm 880 also features a unique supplemental UV-B mode which is essential to develop higher potency harvest. The sun naturally contains large amounts of UVB. HID lights do not deliver any significant levels of UVB. No other LED grow light in the market covers the UVB spectrum because LED diodes are narrow band and focus their light in a narrow spectrum. SolarStorm employs unique T8 fluorescent UVB bulbs integrated into the fixture with a separate control. The UVB bulbs are typically turned on during final few weeks or finishing phase of the grow cycle to boost the potency of the final harvest. In Veg mode, the unit consumes around 475-watts. In Bloom mode, the unit consumes around 650-watts and in Bloom mode with the UVB T8 bulbs turned on, around 680-watts.
