Black Dog just bested their best in terms of power with the brand new PhytoMAX-3 series.
The PhytoMAX-3 8S draws 410 watts and delivers 874 μmol/s total photobiological photon flux (PBF) making the series the most efficient grow lights on the market.
What that means for you is the largest coverage area on the market at 6.25 x 6.25 ft for Veg and 5 x 5 ft for Flower/Bloom and an even light across the footprint that penetrates deep below the canopy.
You can also expect to get +2.5 lbs or more of dried, cured and trimmed flower per light.
This is a truly full-spectrum (350-750nm, UV to NIR PBAR) LED plant grow light! The PhytoMAX-3 8S uses only the highest-quality, latest-technology, top-bin LEDs to deliver Black Dog LED's proprietary full-cycle Phyto-Genesis Spectrum® evenly over the entire footprint, with unprecedented PAR levels, canopy penetration and yields!
Recommended for full-cycle growth in spaces (and tents) from 3' x 3' to 5' x 5'
Your plants grow stronger and yield more.
With the larger coverage and higher yields, Black Dog lights pay for themselves within a year.

More Intense Light for Deeper Canopy Penetration
This fixture has 224 high-output 5-watt LEDs that deliver an intense light, which is necessary for deep canopy penetration. The light is delivered evenly throughout the coverage area, eliminating hot spots and leaf burn.
Highest Power LED Grow Light on the Market
The PhytoMAX-3 8SP at 410 actual watts and 874 μmol/s total photobiological photon flux (PBF), these grow lights are our most powerful grow lighting solution to date.
Largest Proven Footprint of any LED Grow Light
Independent spectroradiometer testing has proven that the PhytoMAX-3 8SP footprint is the largest on the market. At the same time, it achieves an evenly covered footprint, meaning no hot spots. You won't have to worry about leaf burn.
Industry's Best Heat Management Maximizes LED Life
This fixture is equipped with ultra-quiet fans that are rated for up to 70,000 hours of use and the largest heat sinks in the industry. Black Dog lights have the best active heat management of all LED lights.
Despite the insane power, this fixture only puts out 1398 BTU, which is not much more than a 700 watt HPS system. Keeping heat down is vital for maximizing the lifespan of LED diodes and for spectrum stability.
Most Efficient Spectrum for Growing Plants
Over 6 years of research and testing has resulted in Black Dog's Phyto-Genesis Spectrum™. It is a true full spectrum, with light ranging from UVA and UVB to far IR. In numbers, it covers wavelengths from 280 nm to 800 nm giving the PM-3 series a significantly wider range on the color spectrum than most grow lights.
This spectrum is ideal for all stages of plant growth. Using one spectrum throughout the grow cycle eliminates the growth stalling that occurs whenever you change the light spectrum mid-grow, such as switching from MH to HPS bulbs.
The Phyto-Genesis Spectrum™ targets photosynthetic (chlorophyll/carotenoid) peaks and also increases production of essential oils via the UV-A light. The inclusion of infrared light helps boost photosynthetic efficiency (see Emerson Effect).
In equal-wattage tests, this spectrum outperforms HPS bulbs, standard MH bulbs, light-emitting ceramic MH bulbs, induction bulbs, fluorescent bulbs and "white" LEDs.
Moreover, the Phyto-Genesis Spectrum appears white to the human eye, which means you can easily monitor plant health. If you've ever grown below a traditional pinkish LED light, you know how hard it can be to see problems and address them in time.
Fastest Return on Investment
PhytoMAX lights are the best value per watt among all commercial LED plant lights. They are proven to achieve an average return on investment of 6 to 12 months. This light pays for itself within a year.
This light does not contain the highly toxic mercury you find in all HID and fluorescent bulbs. This also means no fees for hazardous waste disposal.
Best Warranty in the Industry
Black Dog LEDs come with a 5-year warranty and a 90-day return policy. See the 'Delivery and Returns' tab above (above on desktop, below on mobile) for more details.
