Get rid of that old 8 tube T5 fluorescent fixture. Stop paying those high energy costs. And stop paying for new bulbs every year, too.

The NextLight Veg8 LED grow light does everything the T5 fixture does, but better.

Designed to perfectly replace an 8 tube T5 unit, the Veg8 will save you $180/yr in energy costs and $160 in bulb changes. Not to mention the hassle of changing all those bulbs.

And it just looks cooler.

Quick Summary

    • Full-spectrum white light designed to replace 8 tube T5 fluorescent fixture
    • 1.94 PPF/w: most efficient T5 replacement LED on the market
    • consumes 190w; 8 tube T5 consumes 430w-450w (saves $180/yr)
    • 100,000 hour rated lifespan (15+ years of no bulb changes, saving $160/yr)
    • gives off minimal heat and runs silent
    • 2' by 4' footprint (same as an 8 tube T5)
    • Full 5 year warranty; designed and manufactured in the US
    • UL certified for damp and dry conditions


Energy Efficient Design Saves You Money

The NextLight Veg8 replaces an 8 tube T5 fluorescent fixture, but only consumes 190 watts and gives off minimal heat. By comparison, a typical 8 tube T5 fixture consumes 430 to 450 watts.

Switching to a Veg8 will save you about $15 per month in energy costs for each unit. That's $180 per year per unit and doesn't even factor in the cooling costs.

A rated lifespan of 100,000 hours means no bulb changes for over 15 years. This saves you an additional $160 per year over the T5 fixture.

Let's look at total cost savings.

T5 Costs Year One Years 2-15
Fixture Cost $255 $0
Energy consumption $180 more than Veg8 $180 more than Veg8
Bulb Changes $160 $160
Total Cost $595 $340


Veg8 Costs Year One Years 2-15
Fixture Cost $535.50 $0
Energy consumption $0 (since less than T5) $0
Bulb Changes $0 $0
Total Cost $535.50 $0


As you can see, a T5 fixture will cost you $595 the first year. The Veg8 will cost you $535.50. Every year after that, a T5 will cost you an additional $340 over the Veg8.

You make your money back within the first year and save $340 every year after!
