Maxibright Digilight Pro Select 600W

The DigiLight Pro Select 600W Ballast is an innovative and cost effective new multi-wattage power pack. Boasting 6 power settings and the ability to run 250W, 400W & 600W HPS and metal halide bulbs, this new technology allows more control over your grow cycles and eliminates the need to purchase additional ballasts for other growth phases. The DigiLight Pro Select has been through extensive testing and quality control before its launch and has proven itself to be reliable, safe and of the very highest quality.

The DigiLight Pro Select 600W Ballast’s six settings are 250W and 275W (super lumens with a 250W bulb), 400W and 440W (super lumens with a 400W bulb), 600W and 660W (super lumens with a 600W bulb). The super lumens settings mean you can push your lighting even further during those critical growth phases to maximize your yields. The dimming settings mean you can properly light your plants in the early stages of development, when high intensity light is not required, not to mention cooling your lamp and ballast in order to extend lamp life.

The DigiLight Pro includes Radio Frequency (RF) Shielding to prevent interference with any other digital household equipment and operates completely silently meaning that your hydroponics hobby won’t be causing any disturbances to you or your neighbors. Other features include end of lamp life detection and automatic shut off functionality as well as soft start technology to extend your lamp life as far as possible.

New Rhino Hobby Carbon Filter, Rhinos New Budget Range


100mm 4″ Rhino Hobby Carbon Filter


Rhino are the world’s leading hydroponics air filter manufacturer. The brand new range of Rhino Hobby carbon filters are made with the same virgin Australian carbon as the premium Rhino Pro range: RC412, but they have a shorter lifespan. Rhino Hobby carbon filters feature a swappable bottom and duct-coupler and they should be turned around every 8-12 weeks to even out the wear ensuring the filters last for their full 9-12 months expected lifespan.

The carbon filters in the Rhino Hobby range do not last as long as those in the Rhino Pro range. Typically, a Rhino Pro carbon filter will last 2 years or more, and the ends never need to be reversed. A Rhino Pro carbon filter typically costs about 40-50% more than the equivalent Rhino Hobby carbon filter, but the Rhino Pro will last 100% longer making it a much more economical choice in the long-run: Rhino Pro Carbon Filter 4″ (100mm) x 12″ (300mm)

Rhino Hobby – the new budget range from the best maker of carbon air filters in the world
Reversible duct-coupling end – end should be swapped around with the bottom every 8-12 weeks for max lifespan
Lifespan: 9-12 months as long as filter is reversed every 8-12 weeks
Removes particles and odours from your grow-room
Made with 100% RC412 Australian virgin activated carbon – the best in the world
Aluminium housing for robustness and low weight
Fits onto 4″ (100mm) ducting or onto a 4″ (100mm) extractor with a 4″ (100mm) fast-clamp
