If you want top quality weed to grow indoors, you are going to need the best light money can buy. In fact, you need something better, or at least equivalent to sunlight.
Please read on to find out all you need to know about the Kind K5 LED Grow Light, designed to provide maximum growth with the minimum possible power consumption.
The Kind K5 XL1000 panel replaces either a 750 or 1000-watt HPS light system setup, but its power consumption is just 650W. It’s still powerful and big enough to cover a 4 by 4-foot area for the flowering stage and a 5 by 5-foot area for the vegetation stage.

The best part about this product is that it lets you control both the full 12-band spectrum and the light cycles very precisely. We believe these LED panel features are unique to this grow light – we haven’t seen them anywhere else except as part of professional grow systems.
This setup lets you control the wavelengths of light you want to use. The remote control makes it possible to adjust the light color digitally depending on the stage of plant growth. You could add more red for bigger blooms during the flowering stage. Compare this to the rudimentary Veg/Bloom switch on some other LED grow lights!
Perfect LED Combination
The KIND LED K5 series grow lights are equipped with the perfect combo of LEDs in all three of the main ranges of the photosynthetic spectrum. These can be adjusted to the level of your choice, enabling you to offer your plants the perfect spectral ratios from seed to harvest.
What’s more, the LEDs will yield excellent results in terms of both quality and quantity without producing any heat. They are quieter, cooler and much more efficient compared to their LED counterparts on the market.
The ingenious timing system of the KIND LED K5 allows you to intensify the level of light during the day, dim the light at night and wake the plants up with just the right brightness in the morning.
The K5 XL1000 panel also features an integrated timer that allows for eight phases of light intensity.
The entire panel includes 320 individual LED bulbs with a secondary optical lens for high intensity light that goes all the way through the plant canopy. Do wear the protective eyeglasses that come with the light – it is very strong.
You won’t need extra fans because these lights run really cool – you can even touch them without gloves. All you need are the built-in heat sink and cooling fans.
Works Anywhere In The World
This grow light works on all voltages, so it can be used in all parts of the world – it doesn’t matter where you are. The design is very beautiful, and the light weighs just 36 pounds.
As with every grow light, this one is not without its drawbacks. Some users have commented that the actual light footprint of this LED is more suitable for a smaller space. The manufacturer is not denying this fact – the dimensions listed above are the maximum possible and a lot of other factors come into play.
Keep in mind that the light penetration is most effective for the canopy of the plants – it will not penetrate just as well deep underneath the canopy.
You also need to use an extension cord as vertical height tends to be an issue with this light. Make sure you read the user manual carefully and follow instructions in order to keep the grow light at a safe distance away from the plant canopy – if you don’t, your weed might end up getting burnt.
In some cases, your settings will need to be entered twice. This applies for the on and off times, the lights you want on and your numbers for percentages of power.
We find that the pros outweigh the cons as far as this light is concerned. It’s actually really good value for money when you compare it to lights with traditional LED panels of the same wattage. There is little need to worry about overheating the weed.
You’ll need less ventilation than with an HPS light, but you’ll get the same performance. The manufacturer has fine-tuned this product with very powerful diodes, taking weed growing to a whole new level.
