The Bestva 2000w is the best LED Grow light we’ve ever tested, hands down – of the 220 that we have reviewed to date. It is not the best LED grow light for everyone, but because of its low price point, light output, energy efficiency, quality growing results, and perfect design that pleases novice growers and experienced gardeners alike it makes our list of one of the best LED grow lights on the market.
LED grow lights are gaining popularity and older lights for indoor growing are slowly losing ground to LED. One core feature of this Bestva LED grow light is its full-spectrum capabilities, which uses a total of 200 light-emitting diodes at 10 watts each made by Bridgelux. The 10w LEDs make all the difference in plant veg and flower stages.
Many LED grow light manufacturers have stuck with only 3w or 5w LED’s and as a result, are falling behind, but because of Bestva’s introduction of these bulbs into the Bestva 2000w LED grow light, many will follow suit just to keep up.

Grow Light Review
Best LED Grow Light Overall: BESTVA Reflector Series 2000W LED Grow Light
Why You Should Purchase This: It’s an LED grow light that is adaptable and perfect for many indoor growing situations
Who This Grow Light is For: Intermediate to advanced growers with knowledge of light spectrums who need options when gardening and expect the best results
Why We Chose the Bestva Reflector Series 2000w as the best in the line-up:
The Bestva Reflector 2000w series is the reason why so many love LED grow lights.
Affordable, energy-efficient, low heat output, and quality growing backed with enough power to give you full-grown plants and buds, even when compared to HPS or other types of grow lights. Bestva has managed to include many features like powerful wattage along with veg and bloom options and at a great price point.
In their reflector series, Bestva offers quality lighting at a great cost per watt. Bestva has really honed in on the science behind growing and incorporated it into the elite series in order to deliver a sound LED grow light.
Something to consider if you need a grow lamp for greenhouse applications is the wattage and PAR output for this Bestva grow light. The coverage is what you would expect with a 2000w led grow light and the PAR it produces is in the perfect range for hydroponic indoor plants veg and bloom approved.
Because cannabis plants require different light spectrums for each phase of plant growth, these LED grow lights were made to tailor to each phase. During vegetative stages of growth, this light uses the wavelengths (PAR) that plants need to grow and stretch, followed by flowering in which blue light can be adjusted via the veg/bloom switch, thus limiting the stretching and transferring the light to bud production.
In short, Bestva 2000 watt led grow light does an outstanding job for each phase of plant growth through scientific data. This is where the Bestva Elite Reflector Series 2000w model really shines. Perfect for greenhouse hydroponic indoor plants as well as indoor plants rooted in soil (see also Mars Hydro TSW 2000W).
Not only that, but this LED grow light is designed to outlast every last one of its competitors via an estimated 100,000-hour lifespan. Amazing right?
You get all the bells and whistles expected in a reflector series LED indoor grow light. The light also comes with everything you need to hang the light and get started with growing your fruits and vegetables.

It crucial for canopy penetration to nourish lower leaves and flowers.
- 【VEG & BLOOM Switch】Two Seperately Switches: VEG for seeding growth. BLOOM for flower and fruit, adjust luminous intensity and spectrum by the switch of VEG or BLOOM. VEG/BLOOM features a more red/blue heavy output to deliver maximum performance from seeding through final flower.
Best Value LED Grow Light: BESTVA DC Series 2000W LED Grow Light
Why Should You Purchase This: This light is the most affordable for a 2000-watt Bestva grow light and produces impressive growing results nonetheless.
Who This Grow Light Is For: New growers, beginners and those that don’t worry about veg/bloom options.
Why We Chose The Bestva 2000w DC Series Grow Light:
The Bestva DC Series 2000w is only slightly less powerful from a watt perspective than the reflector series (see also Kind LED K5 XL1000) and does not offer veg/bloom switches for plant growth. Yet this indoor grow light is much less and still offers amazing growth potential.
In fact, if you are the type of grower who leaves all spectrums of light on throughout the growing phases this won’t bother you one bit.
If you are of the mindset that limiting spectrums based on the plant growing cycle is important then I would go with the elite series model instead.
Short of that, this LED grow light still puts out an impressive 1400 watt HPS equivalent of growing power. With low heat output that won’t cook your plants, it is a perfect choice.
The coverage for this LED grow light is similar to that of the reflector series. Based on its scientific design the proper coverage area should be right around 3.5 inches squared at around 18 inches in height to maintain healthy growth. This is perfect for a 4×4 grow tent or enclosed space (check out post for more grow tents).
The DS in the title Bestva 2000w DC series stands for dual chips. This type of LED technology is perfect for creating a natural spectrum light and focusing energy on the plant that it craves.
- 【HIGH YIELD & LOW COST】This 2000 watt led grow light designed with 1176pcs high quality LEDs, Compare with the traditional 2000 watt grow lamps, this light is brighter and efficient, but consuming only 200 watts.Perfect for 3x3ft,Max coverage 4x4ft.

What is an LED Grow Light?
In case you are still wondering what an LED grow light is or if it is right for you to consider their counterparts. Older grow lights were made for growing. The problem is that they often did not have different light spectrums and would need to be switched out for other grow lights to continue growing plants properly.
On top of that, they run very hot. Meaning you would have to buy exhaust fans and cooling systems so plant temperature would stay within range.
With LED grow lights, all that is eliminated. They run cool because they use light-emitting diodes, hence the acronym LED.
The light in an LED grow light uses zero filaments and instead uses chips or semiconductors to create the light with an added bonus of full spectrum light that mimics sunlight. LED grow lights also last years longer than HPS bulbs, for example. Typically upwards of 100,000 hours.
If perhaps, you tried 2000w LED grow lights or 1000w LED grow lights for that matter, 10 years ago and were disappointed, that’s okay. It would be worth trying again as the technology has improved 1000% recently.
The results speak for themselves, especially if you are a budget-minded grower seeking an alternative to a traditional HPS lamp for greenhouse hydroponic applications.
1. Are BESTVA lights any good?
Although every Bestva LED grow light is different, Best grows lights are designed to consume less power, use quality LED chips sets and last at least 50,000 hours, and have a perfect balance of PAR/LUMEN to help plants thrive.
2. How much power does a 2000 watt LED use?
In total, the exact amount of energy it uses is around 300 watts. The energy usage is equivalent to the output of a 400-watt HPS bulb, and the light bulb has a radius of three feet by three feet.
3. Do LED lights raise electric bill?
LED lights consume less energy than incandescent and fluorescent bulbs. The LED light is also more durable, which means it lasts longer. If you use a lot of electricity to power your lights, switching to LEDs can help lower your electric bill.
4. How many watts do LED grow lights use?
The average LED grow light draws about 32 watts for a single sq ft for flowering. Compare that to a typical HID that rings in at about 40 watts per sq ft (assuming a 5′ x 5′ area, or 25 sq ft area). Using an HID in a 4′ x 4′ box will bring the area covered to 62.5 watts per sq ft.
5. How much electricity does a 1000w LED grow light use?
To know how much electricity does a 1000w LED can consume, you need to divide your wattage by 1,000 (one thousand kilowatts amount to one watt). So, if we were to run a 1000 watt artificial-ingredient electric light 18 hours every day with the kWh per kWh value of $0.1559 per kilowatt-hour, our formula would be: 1 x $0.1556 x 18 x 30 = $84.186 per month.
