Since being developed by a group of electrical engineers turned indoor growers in 2008, G8 LED has been a mainstay of indoor cultivation, thanks in part to its consistent attention to customer feedback.
The company said G8 LED has been able to focus on redesigning and innovating LED technology based on customer feedback, allowing it to bypass the early hurdles some LED grow lights have faced. G8 LED’s philosophy is that if something does not work well for the customer, it will not work well for the long-term success of the company either.
The LED panels come in six different variations starting with the 240-watt, full spectrum model for veg and flower and ranging up to the 900-watt, full-spectrum model, also for veg and flower. Other products include 450- and 600-watt models and the 90-watt, all-red flowering boost.
Soon after the Los Angeles-based company was founded, G8 LED partnered with online retailer Dormgrow.com to offer products direct to customers. The partnership has allowed G8 LED to focus its efforts on manufacturing and design, while the website manages the retail and wholesale arenas, the company said. The website also hosts a variety of guides, lessons and video tutorials to help growers better understand the products, avoid simple missteps and get the best return on their investments.
While the biggest advantage of using LED lights is the notably smaller carbon footprint, compared to high-intensity discharge bulbs, growers will need to make some adjustments in their techniques, the company said. One of the biggest mistakes people make with LEDs is overwatering, the company said. Since the LEDs have a smaller heat output, there is less evaporation and a less-frequent watering schedule should be followed, the company said.
G8 LED recently received a Significant Technological Achievements in Secretive Horticulture Award (STASH) from High Times. The iconic culture magazine awarded G8 LED as one of the best light manufacturers in the industry due to its design and growing capability.
