If you’re in the indoor grow industry, there is a high chance that you’ve heard of “Quantum Board LED Grow Light”. Quantum Board LED grow lights have continued to grow in popularity since the Horticultural Lighting Group first introduced them in the market. Currently, several brands have started creating these grow lights and there are some DIY kits as well.
The biggest question lingering on the minds of growers is; are they effective and reliable as other LED grow lights? As you will find out later in this review and guide, Quantum Board LED Grow Lights, normally shortened as QB LED grow lights are very efficient and effective in performance. These lights have several advantages over COBs such as better efficiency and much easier thermal management.
Advantages of Quantum Board Lights
Heat management in Quantum Board lights is much easy and simpler. Usually, a board mounts on a thin Aluminum plate that doesn’t need active cooling, such as installing fans or vents. These Aluminum plates stay cool for longer and are sometimes used as reflectors to increase the spreading area of lights.
Uniform Light Spreading
Quantum Board lights spread light over more area as the surface area of the strings is often 12 inches or more, whereas COB throw lights from a single source that measures hardly 1 inch in diameter. The emitted from the Quantum Board is also uniform in wavelength and spectrum.
More Lumens Per Watt
Quantum Board lights are more efficient. Comparing 50 watts’ efficiency for getting more lumens per watt shows that Quantum Series produce 180 Lumens whereas, a COB may be limited to 160 Lumens per watt only.
ECO Farm Quantum Board LED Grow Lights utilize the latest in high yielding LEDs technology today-Samsung LM301B diodes, delivers powerful light output and uniform canopy penetration to resulting maximum higher yields. Only consumes 480w, running 50% less power than the HPS or other SMD LEDs or Blurple lamps. A single light can be adjusted the light intensity at liberty. Multi-light Connection with unified dimming especially beneficial for large area of indoor growing and commercial planting.Excellent full spectrum- white, blue, red and IR (3000K, 5000K, 660nm and IR 740nm). 3000K diodes providing more reddish light and the 5000K providing more blueish. The 660nm red and IR light is especially useful during bloom, where it speeds up flowering time and boost yields. Turn your seeds into your own supply. And the light looks fairly natural, so it’s good for accurately monitoring plant health.No Fan Noise Free. High Safety performance MEAN WELL Driver, Fair Waterproofing.

The HLG Quantum Board light is well made because it has a larger aluminum panel and a dimmable MeanWell driver to control the light intensity. With R-spec output, this is one of the most efficient LED plant growth lights you have ever seen. It can replace single-ended 1000 watt HID, using white light quantum LED grow lights, your plants will grow quickly in all stages, and you will get higher yields than similar lamp models. Growers often use to increase cannabis production in the grow room. Just plugin and enjoy harvesting maximum HLG-550 uses Aluminum heat sinks to manage and reduce heat without making noise in the growing environment. It hardly uses 480 Watts of electric power if run on a full capacity. Otherwise, the dimming option allows you to reduce power consumption up to 200 Watts.

Quantum Board LED Grow Lights Buying Guide
Area of coverage
There are different sizes of light and choosing the right one for your space is important. Some people have a small grow area while others have a large grow area. Select a quantum board LED light that perfectly covers your grow area. You wouldn’t want to install a small grow light in a big space or a big grow light in a large area.
Type of plants
Pick the right quantum board LED grow light for your plants. Different grow lights are suitable for different plants. Make sure that you select a QB LED grow light that can fit your type of plant and at a growth stage that it is. Even though certain lights are best suitable for certain stages, most of the quantum board grow lights are versatile and can be utilized in any stage of the plant’s growth.
Don’t just pick from any brand on the market as not every brand out there offers quality and the durable quantum board led grow lights. Consider buying your QG light from notable and trusted brands such as Horticultural Lighting Group, Spider Farmer, and Fissioning.
Quantum LED Boards are here to stay and will surpass the more traditional LED grow lights we have seen. As this technology grows the price will fall as they become more mainstream for indoor growers. Hopefully, you will find your best quantum board from some of the advice in this article.
