Optilux 600w Magnetic Grow Light Kit comes complete and ready to plug and play – Just connect all the components and it’s ready to light your plants!
All components have been specifically designed for use with each other. The Kit includes:
Optilux euro reflector: A lightweight, open ended, highly polished dimpled reflector.
Optilux magnetic 600w ballast: Balances the power your lamp receives.
Optilux dual spectrum lamp: suitable for vegetative and flowering phases.
This kit is perfect for those embarking on a hydroponic project as well as larger operations that are looking to expand on a budget, representing great value for money for any size garden.
The Dual spectrum lamp includes hues from both sides of the spectrum (red and blue) so it can be used throughout the entire lifecycle of a plant with great results. The fact the bulb can be used all the way through a cycle reduces the maintenance you need to do on your garden; gone are the days of switching all your bulbs over to HPS at the onset of flower.
Euro reflectors are a staple among indoor growers, they’re wide angled and open ended so there won’t be any heat building up under the shade allowing you to get the reflector closer to your canopy without negative affects creeping in. Euro reflectors are made from a highly reflective anodised aluminium that’s hammered and dimpled so there’s no hotspots with an even light distribution.
Traditional magnetic ballasts are extremely reliable as there’s no moving parts and they operate on the simple principle of inducing a current through a coiled copper wire and an iron core. While the warranty is 2 years, many gardeners have magnetic ballasts for over 10 years without issue.
The initial outlay required for magnetic kits is lower than digital light kits but digital light kits use less energy; If you plan on running your garden for more than a year, you’ll recoup the extra cost of digital ballasts through savings on your electric.

How to Use:
Never run your lights before peeling the protective plastic layer on the reflector off
Just plug the lamp into the reflector and the reflector into the ballast and you’re ready to go! Use a contactor to control the on/off switching of the light fixture to be safe from an electrical standpoint.
We recommend replacing your bulbs in 4 - 6 month intervals or once every complete cycle to keep output as high as possible – making yields more consistent.
We recommend mounting your ballast outside your room – place them above waist level to reduce the chances of moisture getting near the units. If you’re sitting them in your room place them on wooden blocks or bricks to allow some air movement around the unit.
Take a look at our Light hangars to choose which hangar to suspend your lights with.
