The NextLight Veg8 is a full spectrum bright white LED grow light designed to efficiently replace a fluorescent 8 tube T5 fixture. This unit uses less than half the power, produces minimal heat and is silent. The Veg8 only draws 190 watts, covers a 2 ft x 4 ft veg footprint and eliminates the need to ever change a bulb again. The Veg8 is part of the NextLight Commercial Series. This distinction means each unit is covered by a 5 year full manufacturer’s warranty, has a 100,000 hour life rating and is UL listed.
The Veg8 is designed to meet the needs of discerning commercial and home growers alike.
NextLight understands excessive power consumption, bulb replacements and heat are the biggest problems indoor growers face. The NextLight Commercial Series alleviates all of those issues. Coming in at 1.94 PPF/Watt, the Veg8 is the most efficient full spectrum LED 8 tube T5 replacement, period.

Energy Efficient Design Saves You Money
The NextLight Veg8 Switch replaces an 8 tube T5 fluorescent fixture, but only consumes 190 watts in veg mode and 60 watts in clone mode 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.
And that's if you run it only in the higher powered veg mode. Clone mode saves you even more.
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.
