Mars hydro vs Betsva

While Mars Hydro and BESTVA are very popular brands, their lights are not equal. They differ in wattage, energy consumption, and other features. Sure, both are Chinese brands, but BESTVA’s lights are more affordable and are not out of reach for most growers.

We know that setting up an indoor grow operation can be difficult, especially from a cost perspective. While we always recommend buying the highest quality grow lights, this is not always possible because some grow lights are just too expensive. That’s why we’ve decided to compare 3 Mars Hydro lights to 3 BESTVA lights.

MarsHydro 600W LED Grow Light Full Spectrum VS BESTVA 600W Full Spectrum LED Grow Light

First on our list are two 600-watt LED grow lights. Our top choice is Mars Hydro’s light because of its energy efficiency. It only consume   0.53 USD per Watt from the wall, which makes this light very efficient while Betsva model has 0.71 $/w. While the Mars Hydro light may be more popular, it has a lifespan of 50,000 hours while the BESTVA light has a lifespan of 100,000 hours. Despite Mars Hydro is priced higher our winning point goes to Mars as it uses 5w LEDs agains 10w ( FYI 3w & 5w leds are the best for growing ) 1:0

Marshydro Reflector 960W LED Grow Light Full Spectrum VS BESTVA Reflector Series 1200W LED Grow Light

The two last lights we’re comparing are the Mars Hydro Reflector 960W Full Spectrum Light and the BESTVA Reflector 1200W LED Grow Light. This time around, we’re going with the Mars hydro light. It has a low energy consumption (it draws only 420 watts) and uses powerful 5W LED Epistar chips. While both lights replace a 1000W HPS/MH, the BESTVA light has a higher power output (1200 watts). We’ve decided to pick Mars light as a winner after comparing effective growing areas MarsHydro 4 x 4′ at 18″ vs  Betsva 3.8 x 4.3′ at 40″. Obviously, nobody is going to put light on 40″ height, so Betsva simply trying to show more rather than it can produce ( and we hate lies ). 2:1
