Global Star G02 300W LED Grow Light Features and Benefits
The G02 300W is the only budget-friendly grow light that features 6 watts LEDs. The panel comprises of 50 LEDs that emit a total of 300 watts over your plants’ canopy. With them, you should be able to produce healthy veggies, fruits, flowers, and herbs. In case you are using it for indoor weed growing, you will notice healthy large leaves in the veg stages and better blooming the budding and flowering stages.
The 6W epileds offers for a better production of photosynthetic active radiation (PAR) in more powerful, focused wavelengths. Since the current is kept at 490 t0 550mA, you will experience an increased lifespan of the lamp fixture. This means that you can use it continuously for several growing seasons. Nonetheless, the Crystal Plus lenses that have been incorporated on every diode at 120-degrees angles ensures that all the lights are distributed evenly on the plants’ canopy.
Despite the budget pricing, the Global Star G02 300W LED Grow Light features two growing modes. The “Leaf” and “Bloom” modes. As a grower, I have found that these growing modes are an essential consideration when investing in grow lights. During the early growth and vegetative stages, you will only need to switch on the “Leaf” mode. In this mode, the light will utilize 8pcs Blue (470nm), 6 pieces Red (625-630nm), 4 pieces Blue (450nm), 2 pieces (6500-7000K), 2 pieces (3500-4000K), 2 pieces (13500-14000K), and 1-piece Green (525-530nm). The mode enhances for an increased production of lengthened stems, foliage, and healthy root systems.
On the other hand, the “Bloom” mode utilizes 12 pieces Red (660nm), 2 pieces Red (630nm), 4 pieces Yellow (585-595nm), 4 pieces Orange (610-615nm), and 3 pieces Royal Blue (430nm). In this mode, more diodes will light up, thus creating a more intense light pattern. The inclusion of more red lights in this mode offers for better budding and flowering. The 12-band light spectrum offers for a controlled plant growth with improved yields.
It is always advisable to understand the minimum and maximum coverage areas of a grow light before investing in it. The Global Star G02 300W LED Grow Light covers an area of 6 to 10 square feet during the vegetative stages and 4 to 6 square feet in the flowering stages. By understanding the rates coverage dimensions, you will figure out on how to design your actual growing area. The blooming stage requires more intense lighting, hence the reduced coverage area. Since this grow light feature an input voltage of AC85V to 265V, it can be used in any country around the world.
The unit has been integrated with two ultra-silent cooling fans and several aluminum heat sinks for better cooling. The fans and heat sinks, combined with the ventilation openings, blow a consistent breeze around the unit making sure that heat is never built up. Furthermore, Global Star has incorporated an intelligent temperature control system that automatically adjusts the current in a situation where the temperatures are too low. As a user, you will benefit from reduced electricity consumption and a system that lasts longer.

Drawbacks of Having Global Star G02 300W LED Grow Light
Useful Tips when using Global Star G02 300W LED Grow Light
Whereas you can keep the unit running for days without turning it off, the best work time should be eight to twelve hours on a daily basis. Just like the natural sunlight, you want to control how you grow your indoor plants in order to enhance maximum yields.
The unit can be used on any types of plants. Despite being marketed as a cannabis grow light, you can use it when growing flowers, veggies, herbs, and fruits. I have seen it offering awesome results at an indoor tomatoes garden.
Always wear eye protection gear when looking directly into the light. In case you are not in a position to access such gears, you can use your regular sunglasses as long as they are genuine. Looking directly into the panel with your naked eyes may result in eye strain.
