Disclaimer:
We aim to offer objective advice & suggestions whenever we can, so we want to be upfront about Value Grow being our own discount-label for LEDs. The info below isn't worded in a "marketing-heavy" way, and we'll do our best to stick to the facts to ensure we remain as objective as we can. :-) Forgive us if it seems a bit "flat"!
The Origin Of Value Grow LEDs
These LEDs were originally developed out of necessity, after a mainstream brand's availability became too sporadic to keep up with demand. We spent a year or so testing the relevant output of LEDs from over a half-dozen suppliers & models, and learned that there can be a tremendous variance in performance between visually similar LED versions. In the testing process we were able to experiment with diode types, diode grades, driver styles, and more in an effort to sell something we can stand behind. When our NEHERP Insider subscribers caught wind of a less expensive LED being tested, we received quite a bit of interest. A handful of LEDs were offered to our Insider Subscribers in 2015, and the feedback was especially helpful. Once long-term tests looked good & our customers confirmed their contentment, we added the LEDs to our lineup!
Comparing Value Grow
Value Grow LEDs have had three versions since 2015, as reasonably priced technology continues to improve. The launch version used common SMD5050 (square-shaped) diodes, and the 13W models metered about 2322Lx & 22.90 µMol/M²S @ 12in. In 2016 we launched the improved V2 models which metered about 4862Lx / 48.60 µMol/M²S @ 12in! (V3 to be tested mid-2019) Value Grow LEDs out-perform the majority of store brand & generic alternative LEDs, while very slightly losing-out to Jungle Dawn in terms of PAR output. While comparing statistics, it's important to keep in mind each VG13 LED is only 7.5in long. If you'll be using two, three, or four bulbs over your enclosure, the lumen output would double, triple, or quadruple and the PAR data may increase (although not as much) too! Performance figures aside, these LEDs are rated for a "daylight" 6400K color temperature. (See photos above for example) With the data in mind, it's not hard to imagine why Value Grow is our best selling brand of LED! :-)
Value Grow Reliability & Warranty
Horizontal Value Grow LEDs utilize high quality diodes & drivers, and our spotlights are actually under-driven by a considerable amount to prolong diode life. All Value Grow LEDs carry a 1-year replacement guarantee, and we're proud to say many of our oldest horizontal units from back in 2015 are still going strong in 2019!

Value Grow LEDs
On Sale Now!
▾ Show Price & Description ▾
(Product photography represents V2 model - not updated V3 model!)
This is the third & best version of our original discount LED bulbs! These meter at nearly double the PAR & Lux output of the original "square diode" models while maintaining the same operating temperature. The improved drivers & diodes provide an awesome best bang for your buck in terms of raw performance. (Don't forget to compare statistics! These are conservatively rated below!) Value Grow LEDs produce full spectrum 6400K light while keeping things cooler than equivalent CFL bulbs. In our tests, these LEDs out-performed a competing SMD5050 "Square Diode" screw-in LED by over 50%, and meter roughly 4800+Lux & ~48µMol/M²S at 12in away. Each LED unit comes with a 1 year replacement guarantee. Please visit our Vivarium Lighting Kits page to see which LEDs we'd recommend for your specific enclosure. (You'll get a discount on the LEDs and fixture that way, too!)

Value Grow Spotlight - Side & Bottom Views
 
Optional Wire Fixture
NEHERP Staff Description
Our Value Grow super high output grow light LEDs were originally selected for use in our indoor grow rooms, but their through-the-roof performance & statistics encouraged us to begin offering them on the site. We've been using Value Grow Spotlights in tests at NEHERP since 2014, and they've proven to be an incredibly high output solution for the price. In our tests, these 6000K spotlights metered over 525µMol/M²S of PAR light, and 44,500lux at 12in away. Value Grow Spotlights have optic lenses which focus the beam of light to a very tight 60° angle, in an effort to ensure plenty of light can penetrate through even the tallest enclosures. These are an appropriate choice for enclosures over 25in tall, but are too bright for us to Use them for anything shorter. Longevity of these LEDs depends on allowing plenty of airflow to naturally flow through their aluminum heat sink, so we highly recommend pairing this bulb with the optional wire fixture. Institutions & custom builders looking to build these LEDs into enclosed cabinets should incorporate a forced airflow solution into the design for best results. Manufacturer rated 30W driver, 36W chipset. Each LED unit comes with a 1 year replacement guarantee. Please visit our Vivarium Lighting Kits page to see which LEDs we'd recommend for your specific enclosure. (You'll get a discount on the LEDs and fixture that way, too!)

Exo Terra Compact Tops

▾ Show Price & Description ▾
NEHERP Staff Description
The Exo Terra Compact Top Canopy is a compact fluorescent terrarium canopy designed for use with Exo Terra Glass Terrariums, but can be used for a wide variety of enclosures. This easy-to-install canopy accommodates compact fluorescent bulbs, LEDs, and even low wattage incandescent bulbs. Optional accessories like Exo Terra's Digital Thermometer & Hygrometer can be slid into the special sliding rim on the top of the canopy for a great finished look. Hoods 12" smaller have 1 on/off light switch, and larger hoods have 2. Max CFL bulb wattage: 26W. Max incandescent bulb wattage: 25W.
Fitment Information
The versatility of these fixtures is part of why we like them so much. Every Exo Terra Natural CFL, UVB CFL, and Plant Growth CFL (up to 26W) we carry will fit into every Exo Terra Compact Top. When it comes to LEDs, every one of our Jungle Dawn & Value Grow horizontal LEDs (under 7.5in) will fit, too! Never mix CFL bulbs and LEDs in a single fixture, since doing so will cause the LED(s) to overheat.

Zoo Med Terrarium Hoods

High quality hoods for screw-in CFLs, LEDs, or incandescent bulbs!

Zoo Med Naturalistic Terrarium Hood
▾ Show Price & Description ▾
NEHERP Staff Description:
Zoo Med's terrarium hoods are made from a durable glossy black plastic which is thicker than most alternatives. Thanks to the heavier-duty components, these are the only horizontal hoods we carry which can support incandescent bulbs (up to 60W)! Their relatively thin footprint (front to back) makes them extremely useful for a variety of enclosure types & sizes, although they were specifically designed to fit perfectly on Zoo Med's Naturalistic Terrariums. The 12in models have one socket & one switch. The 18in models have two sockets & two switches. Both use a single plug.
Fitment Information:
These fixtures can support incandescent bulbs up to 60W and CFLs up to 26W with ease. The 12in model fits all Jungle Dawn & Value Grow Horizontal LEDs we carry up to 7.5in. If you'd like to use LEDs on the 18in model, it's important to use one (short) 9W Jungle Dawn in the shorter-socket, since the longer Jungle Dawn & Value Grow LEDs won't fit due to the hood's offset-socket setup. The larger side can fit the longer (up to 7.5in) LEDs without issue. If you'll be using an incandescent bulb & a CFL together in an 18in fixture, it's important to note that only Zoo Med's Reptisun LEDs are the only ones in our lineup marketed for that purpose. Never mix LEDs with Incandescent or CFL bulbs in a single fixture since doing so will cause the LED to overheat.
