Viparspectra LED Grow Lights Review 2023 – How Good Is It?
When growing cannabis plants indoors, light is one of the most essential things that your plant will need since it will determine how your plant will flourish. This is why a good grow light (1) is needed for your indoor garden. However, grow lights are expensive and not everyone will have the budget for it.

This is where Vipaspectra provides the most affordable solution. Their lights, such as the Viparespectra 600w, are perfect for beginners or those who are already experienced in indoor gardening. I will discuss in this review why this is the case.
Design & Durability
Although Viparspectra Grow Lights are affordable, the company ensured they would not offer low-quality products to short-change their customers.
Type of Lights Used
One of the things that makes Vipaspectra a good choice is that it uses full-spectrum lights. This means that you do not need to switch to different grow lights to accommodate different growth stages of your cannabis plant. You can use one grow light, whether your plant is still in its budding stage or already at the flowering stage.
LED Material and Casing Construction
Using full-spectrum lights requires top-quality LED lights to properly deliver. Viparspectra uses a combination of LED chips from Epileds and Bridgelux. These two manufacturers are known to produce top-quality LED lights, allowing Viperspectra to deliver good quality full-spectrum grow lights.
For the equipment’s casing, the company uses iron that is fire-resistant. This allows the casing to withstand the heat coming from all of these LED lights and prevent it from catching fire.
Grow Light Lifespan
The longevity of Viparspectra’s Grow light is dependent on your usage. If you do not use it too often and are very careful in handling it, you can expect the equipment to last longer.
The company says that its grow lights have a lifespan of 100,000 hours. Not everyone agrees, however, since some people claim the grow lights lasted only for 50,000 hours. It is safe to assume that the grow light lasts anywhere from 50,000 to 100,000 hours.
The ventilation fans that Viparspectra uses operate quietly, You will hardly notice that there are fans inside the tents to keep the interior cool even with all the lights on.
The main safety concern when it comes to grow lights is how hot these can get. The company ensures this is not a problem as they included good cooling features for each of their lights.
The lights use fire-resistant iron housing to prevent fire. These also come with cooling fans and aluminum heat sink to further boost the product’s fire prevention features.
Some of Viparspectra’s grow lights, like the Viparspectra 1200w, even have the UL Certification, which means it was tested and inspected rigorously for safety. The certification indicates that the products passed the test. This ensures customers that the lights will not be a fire hazard in their homes.
Grow Light Sizes & Assembly
Viparspectra’s grow lights come in 3 series.
The Reflector Series are the grow lights that come with built-in reflectors. These allow the equipment to directly point the light to the plant’s canopy, making it easier for the crops to absorb light. This LED grow light is the perfect equipment for beginners. It has vegetation and bloom modes.
One of the best models from the Reflector Series is the Viparspectra 300w, which is also one of the company’s LED lights with the lowest power wattage. It is also one of the cheapest grow lights that the company offers.
This series is for the more experienced cannabis growers. The models featured give more control on the light spectrum since you can dim the red, white, and blue light channels. This will give you more flexibility when it comes to providing the kind of light for your plant.
The best model for the Dimmable Series is the Viparspectra 450w PAR450, which is the perfect model to try if you want to see how this series works. It is small, cheap, and has all of the features that Viperspectra offers in their LED grow lights.
Another good model from the Dimmable Series is the Viparspectra 600w. It offers more power wattage than the 450w. It is also affordable. This model is better suited for more experienced growers who have a decent-sized crop.
Timer and Remote Control Series
This is the company’s more expensive series. It contains the features of dimmable grow lights but also includes a timer and remote to provide more convenience in setting up your LED grow light. This series contains various models, including a Viparspectra 600w, 300w, and 450w.
What Comes with the Box
When you purchase a grow light from Viparspectra, you can expect to get all of the necessary materials you will need to completely install it inside the grow tent.
Depending on the model you buy, inclusions are the LED lighting with an iron case, 6ft power cord, the hanging kit, the adjustable rope hanger, and an instruction manual. Some grow light products will come with added features like remote control and ventilation fans.
Ease of Use
Viparspectra includes an instruction manual inside their grow-light boxes and you just need to follow the instructions to properly set the fixtures inside the grow tent. If you are a beginner, it is best to ask for assistance to help you set it up properly. Otherwise, the instructions are simple and easy enough to understand and follow.
Viparspectra has several different grow tent models available, but I will only discuss the most popular ones that the company offers in this section.

One of the best and most popular models from Viparspectra is the V600 UL Certified grow light. This model comes with a reflector, which means it can deliver light brightness and intensity equally to all plants and not just concentrate on the center of the equipment.
This grow light also comes with a Veg-Bloom switch so you can easily change the light spectrum to match what your plant will need. This model also has a UL certification, which means it has passed the safety standard and rigorous testing to make sure the product is safe.
It is also affordable, so you will not have to worry about spending a lot if you buy this grow tent. You have to be careful, though, as this model is not waterproof. The bright lights are also harmful to your eyes so avoid looking at it directly. Wear protective eyeglasses.
If you are looking for a smaller grow light but still have the same features, you can try the Viparspectra 300w V300 UL Certified Grow Light. It contains all of the features of the 600w, but at a smaller size and power output.

As part of the Dimmable Series, this model gives you full control of the lights that your plants will receive. It does not have a switch between veg-bloom, but it does have a Veg and Bloom Dimmer. This allows you to manually dim either the red, white, and blue lights to provide the kind of light that your plant will need. This makes the model a perfect fit for intermediate and professional growers.
This grow light is also big enough to cover larger plants or bigger crops. You also will not have to worry about heating issues since it comes with 0.8” aluminum heat sinks and 3.2” cooling fans. This is the perfect equipment for experienced growers. The problem with this model is that it may take some time to get used to the dimming feature. It is also an expensive product, but the quality of the materials does not feel premium.
If this model is too expensive for you, the Viparspectra 450w PAR450 is a good model to try. It is smaller, but it also contains all of the features of the PAR1200. Best of all, it costs much less.
Pros and Cons
- Full control over the light spectrum
- Can be controlled by a timer
- Not cheap, but still affordable if compared to other brands

If you need a big grow light, you can check out the Viparspectra TC1350 LED Grow Light. This is the biggest model that the company can offer, as it can cover 5’x5’ area if you place the light at a height of 44 inches.
This model has dimmable features, which means you will have full control over the kind of light that your cannabis plants can receive. But the beauty of this model is the built-in timer that you can program when the light will go and off automatically. You can even set the timer using the remote.
This is a perfect grow light for professional growers or those who are growing marijuana plants for commercial use. The only problem with this grow light is that it is a bit pricey and the materials it uses are not really top quality.
The Viparspectra 900w TC900s grow light is a good mid-range alternative if you do not want a large grow light. It offers similar features at a smaller size and at a more affordable price tag. You can check out the specification table for the complete list of available Viparspectra models and sizes.
Pros and Cons
- Full control over lighting
- Has remote and timer control
- Can cover large plants or big areas

- Materials used lack that top-quality feel
Customer Service & Warranty
Warranty is one of the best features of Viparspectra since the company offers a 2-3-year warranty (2) for all of its LED Grow Lights for any major defects. They also offer a 30-day guarantee, where you can get your money back, have the damaged product repaired, or have it exchanged.
The warranty, however, does not cover damage due to water, high moisture level, power surge, dust buildups, and improper mounting or hanging of the grow light. You can read more about the warranty policy on their website.
As for customer service, there are not many complaints about the company’s customer service team. This shows that their team is doing its job properly in ensuring that customers’ queries and concerns are addressed properly and in a timely manner.
