A New Arrivial in 2021- FC-E led grow lights Release and Giveaway!
By Hazel 5 days ago 2306 Views 77 comments

In 2020, we have released FC series; and now in 2021, we’re releasing FC-E series as our new product this year. These new series have a similar name to FC series, but of course, there are differences. Will they perform well as FC series do?

PAR Value




PPFD Efficiency












Input Voltage












Life time
















Spectrum Includes




We know that the following points play a decisive role in determining whether an LED grow light is a good light - wattage, heat dissipation function, PAR(or PPFD), spectrum, components’ quality. Let's see how do FC-E series perform in these areas.

1. Wattage and heat dissipation function

FC-E series has 3 lights - FC-E3000, FC-E4800, FC-E6500, which are designed into 3 different wattages - 300w, 480w, 650w, to meet different requirements in the growing project, whether you grow small or grow big.

Bigger watts, more heat. That’s common to see in electrical appliances. The key in a grow light is dissipating heat. FC-E series are assembled with separate light bars and each light bar has a special heat dissipation design - a wave-shaped aluminum heat sink. The light bar design along with a wave-shaped heat sink will make your light bright as sun while cold as the moon.


PAR and PPFD is the most important factor in a LED grow light. PAR, as we all know, is the light that plants absorb and use. PPFD measures the amount of PAR from the grow light to your plant. FC-E series has the PPFD at 2.7umol/j, which is a pretty high PPFD level among all the grow lights at the price range in 3x3 ft (FC-E3000), 4x4 ft (FC-E4800), 5x5 ft (FC-E6500) coverage. So in the PPFD part, FC-E series are very reliable and cost-efficient.

3. Spectrum

The design of the spectrum involves the core technology of LED lights. All of our technicians are constantly researching, testing, and improving new spectra to provide growers with more efficient LED lights and grow better.

White light(2800-3000k,4800-5000k) contains all the spectrum for plant grow. But that’s not enough. Because plants prefer some specific waves - like red(660-665nm), which will help plants grow and bloom; like Ultraviolet(UV,380-410nm), which is shown to make plants grow larger, longer, and denser leaves; like Infrared(IR,730-740nm), which is thought to help plants bloom larger and have more specific outputs.

We add these spectra when designing this FC-E series, to make more effective and useful LED grow lights.

P.S FC-E3000 and FC-E4800 have UV & IR light; only FC-E6500 does not have UV and IR light.

4. Quality of components and warranty

All our light components have passed ETL - ETL tests parts and components of a wide range of products to make sure that they are in line with standards. This certification has well proved the quality of our components to be safe, legal, and efficient. We also offer a 5-year warranty for our lights. Growers would never worry about the quality issues.


You may have this question after we introduce FC-E series’ specifications: “Your new series sounds pretty good, but it’s similar to your FC series, which one should I choose?” We’re here to help you with your decisions. Below are their differences.

  • Light design and installation

FC-E series look the same shape as FC series, but they do have different design. Detachable light bars are not only easy to repair and maintain but also convenient for growers to DIY their own illumination needs by moving the light bar. Of course, this option is challenging. For most customers, the best choice is to use our recommended light bar positions. We’ve adjusted the light bar interval to make the light can cover the whole space evenly.

  • LEDs arrangement

As far as we know, the best lighting PPFD value for plant growth is 500-900 umol. We adjusted the LEDs arrangement according to this point, so that the par value of light is more uniform. Even in the edge, the plant can also absorb enough photons needed to get a more uniform crop.

  • LEDs

Except for LEDs arrangement, FC-E series also changed LED itself. FC-E series will no longer use Samsung and Osram chips. At this point, some might say: “Isn't this a downgrade?” No, totally not. The LED chip is from our new partner in the USA called BridgeLux and our design team customized it with new tech. To make sense: A single Samsung chip intensity is 220lm/w, while this new American chip is 230lm/w.

Differences conclusion in one picture:

Different people have different preferences. The decision right is always in customers’ hands.

All in all, welcome to try the new series. We’re sure they will not disappoint you!

When I see your inventions, I'm impressed. I'm a user/owner of two of your products. After I replaced all my light sources with MarsHydro LED panels, it's easier to manage the temperature inside the tent. Lower power consumption is an additional feature.
I noticed yesterday evening, a brilliant idea - Tent 2 in 1 (to be honest 3 in 1), I need one, but unfortunately, the EU storage magazine is empty.
Thanks for all.

Detachable light bars sound amazing.

I'm def interested in the products your company sells and would love to participate in the social media experiment for testing you product and placing it on social media. I currently have a few test going with some seed suppliers and I have a few other competitors to do a side by side. Best of luck read great reviews of your products.

Ok. So first off, big shout out to Mars. The FC series is nothing but amazing. My first time was a blurple style of lighting and got away from from that as soon as possible. I then bought (4) 1000 watt Mars Hydro TS series light. I immediately fell in love. As things expanded, I needed more lights. At this time the FC series dropped. A little more expensive but the return definitely makes up for it. My plants loved it. The lighting is brighter than the TS models and really shows the plants and they respond very well to them. No regrets at all. I wouldn't recommend anything else other than these. I have not tried the FCE series but do intend to in the very near future. I just purchased the FC 4800 and of course it works amazing. Mars Hydro has a customer for life. P.S.
....Do you guys have any other sticker designs? The ones you got are cool but just curious.
Sean 3 days ago at 9:46 PM
I have always been a fan of the Mars hydro led light from the purple/ blue leds all the way to the fc 3000 that I currently have at the moment and I love the light i only had one issue with this light and that was not being able to move the bars to make a more even light spread in my 3x3 and now with the fc-e lights I can I will be preordering one of these now and run a side by side and post for others can make a more informative decision on the 2 thank Mars keep up the good work
Chris 3 days ago at 12:02 AM
I currently have to Mars hydro lights and the plants love it , looking forward to upgrading to the new fc e series soon ,best light's around for the money
Zack 3 days ago at 2:03 AM
Just bought the tsl 2000 due to the design love it great light. Now I’m going to have to get FC-E due to a better design way more options for the grow room will be able to use more space due to the adjustment on this light. Thank you Mars Hydro for leading the led world great job A+

JSH1973 3 days ago at 6:13 AM
Nice one again Mars Hydro, thanks for the chance to win :-)
Scott 3 days ago at 6:17 AM
Be happy to get and test one of these. I would however still lile the specs on the modela using the meanwell drivers. From what I can see they are the elgc series. Most of that series does not provide full wattage on a standard us plug. So which version of the driver did you use?
Wild Bill 3 days ago at 6:22 AM
A cheaper price with more flexibility should make this series of lights a very viable option and should grow canna quite well!
@old.manfinkey 3 days ago at 6:22 AM
Anything that promises high output and cool temperatures and delivers is something worth considering. Like the open concept, for cooling and the ability to install the driver remotely ( outside of tent ), spectrum looks great as well.
Jawiah Jane 3 days ago at 6:24 AM
I loved to try the FC-E4800.I have ts1000 and ts600 in my tent and they love it so I can only imagine how they'd react with some more greatness.Well I guess I'll start clearing some room for that beast. Haha✌
Simon Hares 3 days ago at 6:25 AM
Would light up my life to get such an amazing light. Love the rest of my products from you guys. When are you going to make the connect to a smart app for smart applications would be a good thing to do like the (MyLumii ) but with your better lights !!!

This looks like a great light. I have a TSW2000 in my veg shed and it works great. I have a youtube channel "enlighten servicing" and recently did a mars hydro grow journal. I'm working on setting up a "clean room" 4x4 indoor flower area and would love to feature this light as the light source for it. love your products, keep up the good work.
Tommy Lee Case 3 days ago at 11:46 AM
I am the proud owner of 1 Mars Hydro tsw1000, 2 tsw 2000 and 1 fc3000. I'm starting my 5th grow and so far I love what Mars Hydro has done for me. Who ever wins is lucky and I will be happy for them but I'm not gonna lie and say I wouldn't be more happy if it was me. Good luck everyone and thanks again Mars Hydro for all your nice lights keeping all our plants growing everyday!
Devin Baxter 3 days ago at 12:10 PM
I'm extremely excited to see what this light is capable of! I have your sp3000, 3 ts1000's and 3 600's and they are all fantastic lights.

Being a newbi expected to kill everything off from the get go, but that never happened just dumb af frosty flowers from a newb let alone about twice the weight if not more per plant compared to others on social meadia ( couldn’t help but laugh at the surprise. So I gave up and ordered my second fc 6500 to flower under along with my other fc 6500 and I have my tsw 3000 vegging now. Curious how the fce handles. Thank you for quality product!!
