Best Cheap 5×5 Grow Tent Lights 2019
Light Comparison

Please keep in mind you can get away with 4 of the lights from the 2×2 section or any of the lights from the 4×4 section will do the job if need be but might not have the full coverage you would with the lights below. Also, keep in mind you will see 50% less yield compare if you compare the spectrum king or HLG to say the Phlizon.

Spectrum king lights are expensive but they are worth it with huge yields and resin coated buds.  I have owned a few of them over the years and never had an issue. They are one of the few LED lights on the market that are equivalent to a 1000 HPS well only consuming 600 watts. I just wish the price would come down as there are lights that are great for 1/4 the price.

HLG 550

HLG or Horticulture Lighting Group has pre-made or DIY kits. If you’re looking to save a few bucks you can buy a kit and watch a Youtube video on how to assemble your new light. These lights have amazing par output and great reviews worldwide for tent grows. I have not personally tested these lights yet but I plan on getting one in the future.

Mars Hydro is a popular brand name found in grow tents worldwide. The newer lights are getting more efficient and better par ratings. for the price, you can not go wrong. I would compare this light to a 400-watt HPS all though they say it compares with a 600-watt HPS.  The fans can be heard if tent is in the next room but are not as loud as some lights.

Price:

A popular budget brand name with a lot of good reviews. I personally never used this light but I have used a few of the older models. You can not go wrong for the price but the coverage seems a bit high to me. This light can be compared to a 500-watt HPS. The only cons are people say some individual led lights stop working after 1 year of use.

Phlizon 2000W

Phlizon 1200 watt best led

This is going to be your most popular low budget light for grow tents. This light has fans that are a little loud but as long as your tent is not beside your bedroom you will be fine. I personally have tested these lights and they work fine. You will not get massive yields but this light will work fine for veg or flower. Expect to crop out 50% of what you would yield with a 1000 w HPS light.
