I recently got a further update on new lights from our friends at MARS Hydro. Just wanted to pass on some of their news, and give you some additional purchase options. If you are a regular visitor to 420 Beginner you will already know I like MARS as a Grow Light manufacturer. They have an excellent range of high-quality products and superb customer service. Their 30-day money-back and 3-year warranty is the best in the business and offers customers security when buying any of their products.
Now we can offer you an additional buying option. Purchase your Mars Hydro Lights from 420 Beginner through our SHOP.
Buy From Us
Our prices are exactly the same as those on the Mars Hydro website and sometimes lower than those on Amazon. We also are able to offer all the most up to date products, not always available on Amazon, nor do we offer outdated products that you may see still for sale on Amazon. So you get the best possible price, and most recent lights available. You can also see what you are buying right here on the site and there is nothing better than seeing the item before purchasing. So check out the full range of lights below:-

Factory Direct or From Amazon?
You can also purchase direct from Mars Hydro. Or you can compare prices and availability on Amazon. Our main concern is that wherever you decide to purchase your lights you get the best possible price and service.
You can also find MARS Hydro lights and tents on Amazon, usually at a higher price because they are combined with other accessories to make a grow kit. The factory store has a wider selection and is more likely to have items in stock if the item is out of stock on Amazon.
Sometimes this can be an advantage, particularly if you are new to growing and want an all-in-one product. The disadvantage is that you may have to go through the Amazon seller if you have questions about return or repair. But it’s always good to have a choice. There are sometimes lower priced used products on Amazon.
MARS Lights use Epistar LEDs and Cree COB chips, which are widely known and available, sourced usually from Taiwan or Samsung in Korea. They use Meanwell drivers for controllable lights, again a well-known company with reliable products. Because MARS has been manufacturing for about 11 years, they understand how to create quality products. For instance, the thickness of their built-in heat sink lowers the need for cooling equipment and eliminates fans in small grow spaces. Each light is quality checked three times in the factory and their claimed error rate is 0.5% which speaks for very high attention of quality.
Every MARS product is described on their website with a fully fleshed out information page, including spectrum analysis charts and descriptions of typical coverage, clear definition of power draw and average yield statistics. In other words, you know what you are getting before you buy.
All their LED Grow Lights have a 3 year warranty, which is longer than usual for most companies. They have a 30 day return policy.
For most products stocked in the local centers, shipping is free to the 48 states, the UK, the EU, Australia and Canada.
Local Distribution and Service
MARS has distribution and service centers in US, Canada, Australia, UK, Russia and Germany. They generally can give you 24 hour turnaround service. They will ship anything in stock within 24 hours.
MARS lights are inexpensive compared to some brands. They are not the cheapest, but do you really want the cheapest? I don’t. Good quality at a good price is better.
MARS answers their emails promptly, and can provide some telephone assistance from a US number with English-speaking customer contacts. I have always had a prompt response in pretty good English from their customer reps.
Whether you need a complete grow kit with tent, light and all the accessories, or you just need some LED Grow Lights, MARS has the goods. The factory store is likely to have more of the individual products if the product is out of stock on Amazon, as sometimes happens.
Use the code “mary” at checkout for a discount from the factory store of about 3%. I know it’s not much but there is no reason not to use it. Penny saved, etc.
