We researched countless number of LED grow light companies and provided our results here. Each of these companies has several different products.

TopLED – http://www.topledgrowlights.com One of the original LED grow light companies sells their popular Mars II Series grow light which has two switches, one for veg and one for bloom. The Mars II Series lights have been one of the favorites in the LED market and continue to be a top tier grow light. Although there are several other companies with good products, our research narrowed the search to these top tier companies. We have been following LED grow lights for several years and find that many companies are only around for just a few years and then disappear. This adds a layer of risk for the consumer so it is important to go with a company that will be around to provide service if and when needed. We have summarized our top picks below:
