Grow Light Review – CF Grow Cree High Intensity 100W Full Spectrum COB LED


What in the heck is a Cree Grow Light? Welcome to The Hippie Geeks. If you enjoy this video, be sure to subscribe
and hit the bell notification icon to catch all our new content! In the winter, we like to have a grow light
going over some of the more light hungry house plant that we keep. Our house can be pretty dark in the winter
months, and having a grow light going really helps them out. The last LED Grow Light that we had been using
there burnt out a couple of weeks ago, and to replace it we chose this Cree High Intensity
100 Watt COB LED grow light made by CF Grow. We have bought several of the much cheaper
LED grow lights over the years, and they all tend to start burning out after a year or
so of use. This time around we wanted to try something
made with better components, and when we came across this light it really seemed to fit
the bill and had great reviews, so we took the plunge and ordered the light, wondering
what we were going to get. We are happy to say that this light has the
best construction of the grow lights we have bought. The body is all metal, the glass lens looks
great and the cooling fan is nice and quiet. The inclusion of a power switch is something
that is often cut from the cheaper lights, and you would be surprised how much you miss
it when it isn�t there. Looking at the rest of the components it really
is built to last, it is especially nice to see the Meanwell driver powering the CREE
COB LED. Although for now it is going to be used in
our grow tent as we are getting all of our seedlings started, I wanted to get it set
up in the place that it will be used the most over the winters, giving light to the plants
I talked about earlier. Opening up the box that it comes in you can
see that it is well packaged, with fitted foam on both the top and the bottom. That is important with a light like this that
has a glass lens sticking out from the bottom. I attached the included hooks and wires to
the back, hung it up and got it plugged in. With the light on and plants under it, the
light spread looks great. At the distances we have it at, it will cover
all of the plants nicely, and with a 3500k color temperature it isn�t going to make
our eyes feel like they are getting burnt out of our skulls. So far, it is doing spectacularly. We have it hung up in the grow tent now over
the fresh seedlings, covering a dead spot we had between our other grow lights. It runs quiet and seems to be doing a great
job keeping itself cool with its single fan. After hooking it up to our Kill-A-Watt, we
can see that is pulling the advertised amount of power out of the wall at 58 watts. These CREE COB LEDS are supposed to be very
efficient, and seeing how much light it is putting out for the amount of power it is
pulling I completely believe it. The real test will be how this does over time,
and I will revisit my review as time goes on to update everyone on its longevity. So far though we are thrilled, and it is a
great addition to our stable of grow lights. If this one holds up, I could definitely see
up picking up some of there more expensive lights to replace our old cheap ones as they
die, which they have unfortunately been doing. If this is your first time here on The Hippie

  1. I got 2 of these and they're worth every dollar. I use them for seedling and veg. Had it about 8 months.

  2. Awesome video. It would be great if you could cover and give some examples of the led lights that are failing, seeing as you have such a great setup, I'm sure we can benefit from your experience and this channel has huge potential. 👍🏼 I have a cheap blue/red 200W led light but have ordered a 100W (2 x 50W) COB led light, I'm wondering if they will be similar in power/flowering potential?
