Pros

Cons

Design and Durability

Growl lights from Roleadro are popular because of their use of high-quality materials. This means that the equipment’s casings and LED lights are top-notch. 

Types of Lights Used

The company offers full-spectrum LED grow lights. This means that their equipment can provide the necessary light needed in different stages of the cannabis plant’s growth. This is great since it means you do not have to worry about using a different LED grow light for the different growth stages of the cannabis plant.

You can simply use this grow light and just adjust the lighting throughout the growth cycle of the crops you cultivate.  

LED Materials & Casing Construction

Roleadro uses a combination of Bridgelux and Epistar (Epileds) for the LED chips of their grow lights. Both companies are known to provide good quality LED chips, which makes the LED lights bright and intense. This makes the equipment a good grow light to use for your plants since you know they will get all the ample light that they need. 

Roleadro also uses a high-quality all-aluminum casing that contributes to the product’s durability overall cooling capability.

Grow Light Lifespan

The lifespan of the company’s LED grow lights will vary depending on the model. The product specs sheets specify that the lowest lifespan of their model is at 50,000 hours while the highest is at 70,000 hours. However, that figure is still likely to change, depending on how you use and take care of the equipment.

If you use the grow light often and keep them on for many hours, its lifespan will likely shorten. The brand, however, is designed long-lasting, with a range of between 40,000 and 80,000 hours.

Roleadro equips their grow lights with Zener protection that keep the unit running even when there are several light bulbs that are already out.

Safety Features

Roleadro also made sure that their LED grow lights are safe, especially from overheating. The company uses cooling fans to keep the equipment cool. Most models actually use 3 cooling fans. The aluminum casing is also good at keeping the grow light cool and Roleadro also used aluminum heat sinks to further ensure that their equipment will stay cool, even during constant use.

Grow Size and Assembly 

Size

Roleadro offers several different models of grow lights. This also means they have different sizes of grow lights available. 

GalaxyHydro Series

The most well-known series that Roleadro offers is GalaxyHydro. The reason for this is that GalaxyHydro was the original name of the LED grow light brand. But the company decided to discontinue its production and use the Roleadro name instead.

The company also upgraded the series, using the latest technology and designs for its models. This includes offering full-spectrum lights, Epileds chip, and a 90-degree optical lens to provide a bright and intense light that is highly efficient at consuming energy.

2nd Generation Series

The newer series that Roleadro offers is the 2nd Generation. It contains all of the features that the Galaxyhydro provides, with additional upgrades and features. Instead of just having a 90-degree optical lens, this model also has a 120-degree optical lens to provide more flexibility when setting up the equipment. 

The series also features 3500k lighting, which means it is suitable for all stages of the plant’s growth. Models in this series also make use of Zenner protection, which means the LED grow light will still function, even if there are already worn out light bulbs. See the specification table for the full list of models and sizes.

What Comes with the Box

When you buy a Roleadro grow light, you can expect to receive everything you will need to set up the grow light in your grow area. This includes the LED light with aluminum casing and cooling fans, a power cord, a stainless-steel hanging kits, and a user manual. 

Ease of Use

Setting up the grow light in your grow area is simple and easy to do so. You do not need to use any special tools to accomplish this. You can easily do it on your own, but you can also ask for assistance if you want to speed up the process.

In case you run into some problems with the setup, you can call the company any time and they are more than willing to provide any guidance and assistance.

One issue with this grow light is that you do not have any control over the light spectrum. All lights are on all the time. 

The coverage is also a bit small at only 3-feet x 3-feet, so you will need another grow light or opt for a smaller grow tent. In case the Galaxyhdryo 1000w grow light is too big for your grow area, you can also check out the Galaxyhydro 300w.

When it comes to the 2nd Generation series, the best model is the 600w LED Grow Light. This model offers great lighting for your plants since it uses 120 pieces of 5-watt chips, which means it offers higher lumens than other models in the same watt range.

  • Has a daisy chain function.
  • The cooling system is adequate

Cons

Customer Support and Warranty

Roleadro offers only a 1 to a 2-year warranty for its grow lights. It is shorter than the usual 3-year warranty that most brands offer, but it offers the usual coverage like damage, breakage, malfunctioning light, and so on. It likely will not cover any user-caused damages, so you still need to be careful. Aside from the warranty, there is also a 30-day moneyback guarantee in case you are not satisfied with the product.

The company also has a good customer service team. They said that they will respond within 24 hours to any issues or concerns that the customers have. You can also refer to the FAQ page (1) for any questions you might have about the products. 

So far, the company is doing its job of responding as swiftly as possible to customers. As I mentioned previously, their team is also going to provide guidance and assistance to customers who need help in setting up their grow lights. You can contact (2) them any time if you have any questions or inquiries. 

Value for Money

Top-notch materials are not the only selling point of Roleadro LED grow lights. The company also boasts that its products are affordable. This claim is actually true because if you check out the models that they have, you can see that there is not a product that is priced above $200. Most of their offerings are also below $100, which is perfect if you do not a huge budget for your indoor gardening.

Combine the affordable prices with good features and high-quality materials, and you have a great LED grow light at your hands. Roleadro made sure that you will get a good value for the money will spend. 

Who Should Buy this Grow Light?

With the cheap prices that Roleadro is offering, the grow lights are perfect for people who have a tight budget and for beginners. The company’s affordable products is a perfect starting point for beginners since they will not have to spend an arm and a leg to start their indoor gardening.

The grow lights are also good for the experienced gardener who does not have a huge budget. The company uses high-quality materials for their grow lights and they also provide good features that are useful for experienced growers. They have a wide array of models that comes in different sizes, so you will find the grow light that you will need. 

Final Verdict

I give the Roleadro LED Grow Lights a score of 4 out of 5.

The company does use top-quality materials for all its grow lights, providing you with a durable product that provides good lighting for your plants. Roleadro also equipped their grow lights with good cooling features, ensuring the equipment won’t heat up when you are using it.

Of course, the grow lights are not perfect, as there are also issues about it. The main problem you have to deal with is that the lights are not designed for prolonged use. You also have to be careful when you are dealing with water, as the lights are not waterproof.

Other than that, though, this is a great grow light to buy. With its affordable price, great feature, and good customer service team, you will not go wrong if you try this grow light for your indoor garden.

Our Rating:

Where Should the Grow Lights be Placed?

The best area to place the grow lights is to hang them from the roof. Roleadro includes a stainless-steel hanging kit in the box to make it easier for you to set up the grow light. Hanging them from the roof is the best location since this ensures that all plants will get the light. 

It’s important that you set up the grow light in a way that you can easily adjust the distance of the light from the plant. The light distance will depend greatly on the kind of cannabis strain you will plant and on the growth cycle of the plant.
