    The Japanese inspired LED spotlights from Nano Customs that we previously covered are soon to roll out in pure red and royal blue LED color options. These lights incorporate 5 Cree XR-E LEDs into a PAR 38 body that features a bonded fin heatsink for cool operating temperatures and a medium base, meaning it can screw into a standard household socket. The spotlights use just under 15w–each LED is rated up to 3w and is driven at ~750mA.

    The Red and Royal Blue flavors are new addition to the LED Spotlights, which in their first release were only available in mixed white : blue set ups. This allows further lighting manipulation. LPS fans will be happy with the pure Royal Blue option as this will allow more of the intense  glowing greens and oranges that they can provide.

    The pure Red LED spotlight option is best suited for larger tanks or for those aquariums with large pink or red coral colonies. For the Nano crowd, these may not be the ticket you’re looking for in terms of supplemental lighting, but they should provide interesting night viewing opportunities.

    The red and blue varieties are available for $8.95 more than the standard models, for just shy of $130. For more information see the original coverage on these new lights: Nano Customs LED Spotlight.

    [Thanks Mike]

      The option for a 2 blue, 2 white, and 1 red LED lamp has been added. This will have a similar apearance to a Radium 20K MH lamp, with it’s slight purple tint. Same lead time and surcharge applies for that one too.

      Thanks for posting it up Eric. I one of each on the way. I also have the 12K & 20K. Will be running between 4 and 6 bulbs over my tank. Once I get in the all red and all blue I will be able to see which bulbs I need more of and adjust as needed.

      “Pretty cool, too bad its already yester-tech” if so why don’t you recommend something better that’s suited for nano applications.

    One Trackback

    1. […] while the 20K formation uses 3 blues and 2 whites as shown above. In addition to the 12K and 20k, solid red and blue LED versions are not available by custom order. The kelvin ratings are fairly accurate, but comparing the spectral and visual qualities of LEDs […]
