FAQ
Why can you find two sets of wattage data on the packaging?

Decisive for you is the overall performance of a system. This determines the "power consumption" on your household bill. All manufacturers are obliged to state this amount on their packaging. This is the sum of the entire electrical consumption of a product. With the JBL LED SOLAR you have the LED and the driver (power supply) consuming electricity. Due to the reactive power and transformation processes every individual power supply consumes small amounts of power. For you as an aquarist the LED performance is crucial for your aquarium and the plants, which is why we do not want to deprive you of this information with the surprisingly low overall values.

Why are there several T5 adapters in the package?

While you may have thought that all 24 W T5 tubes have the same length, there are in fact many different lengths with the same wattage on the market.That's why we've included two different adapters to facilitate a safe and easy installation. In case of an unsuccessful installation attempt, please try an alternative adapter from the box.

Which LED length fits my aquarium?

You will find a tabular overview on the packaging of every LED. This will tell you which LED SOLAR fits your aquarium. There are two application scenarios for this.
1. You replace an existing T5/T8 tube to install the LED as a retrofit. In this case please refer to the relevant column. Most aquarium owners prefer the shorter model because of the small distances left and right of the tube socket in the aquarium cover. You can either select according to the length of the tube (in mm) or according to the wattage.
2. The second type of installation is as a top assembly or hanging installation. Here the maximum aquarium width is decisive. Please refer to the relevant column. For this type of installation, always choose the larger of the two options for optimal illumination.

Can I operate an LED SOLAR EFFECT unit on its own?

The operation of the LED SOLAR EFFECT on its own does not provide the lighting, which is absolutely necessary for fish and plants, in sufficient quantities. Due to the existing plug configuration, which has been selected for your safety, the LED SOLAR EFFECT must be operated together with a LED SOLAR NATUR. If you individually purchase the LED SOLAR EFFECT which is intended only as a supplement to the LED SOLAR NATUR, you will not have all the necessary accessories. This is why you only find the driver (power supply), the IR receiver and the remote control in the box of SOLAR LED NATURE. And that’s why the LED SOLAR EFFECT can only be operated in combination with the LED SOLAR NATUR.

What does “retrofit“ mean?

Retrofit refers to the option of converting conventional T5/T8 tubes to the JBL LED SOLAR system. You can, without having to remove the aquarium cover or make any structural changes, simply "plug" the new LED into the old tube sockets for operation. Many cat owners are unable to operate an "open" aquarium and therefore need an aquarium cover. The aquarium surroundings also sometimes prevent an open installation. In such cases the retrofit installation is ideal.

PAR measurements in the aquarium - The strength of the JBL LED SOLAR
