As mentioned before, soul of a light (no matter for general lighting fixtures or a cannabis lamp) is always the optics, which refers to the spectrum for a grow light. But one should never neglect that structure design of a light also matters a lot, or even decisive for the lifespan of a fixture.
1. Logistics Costs Saving. Plut-in structure of a octopus style grow light was the mainstream in the market, one of the major reason was that it saves the tranportation fees a lot. Because the bars and the main structure could be packaged separately for an impact shipment for small size for costdown delivery.
Growers assembly the bars to the fixture crossbeam, which is a plug-in structural design target for easy DIY installation.
The importers or distributors like the plug-in grow light the most, because it saves their import transportations fees as lot as well as the domestic logistics to the growers.
But, as a grower, who finally uses the light for cannabis plant, does not necessarily like it: mis-assembly could happen due to a minor installation mistake, and the labor costs is always high for such work. What's worse, the result could be disastrous if wrong instation leading to damage of a plant or failure of the plant. So, it comes the Foldable Grow Light.
2. Human Friendly Installation for Growers, Who are the Final Fixture Users.
It only needs to unfold the light and do mounting installation for a foldable grow light, instead of installing the bars one by one and connecting the wiring cable and then mounting for the plug-in stype grow light.
In one word, growers like a foldable grow light because the installation experience is great. It's the exact reason why foldable cannabis lamp rapidly became another mainstream among the high power grow light structure designs.
But there is also a headache for a foldable grow light: costs higher than the traditional octopus plug-in style ones. Costs always matter for bother the importer/distributor or the growers, because the fixture costs could belong to the top 3 costs for budget of a commercial cannabis plant farm.
3. Headache is Opportunity--explore a balanced structure solution to meeting demands of importers for inventory capital saving / transportation fees costdown and growers for easy installation.
So, it comes the "Detractable" Grow Light with stretchable and shrinkable functionality.
Another Pending for Exlusive Cooperation on OEM/ODM basis is "Ladder" Series Grow Light, which is up to 1200W by only ONE UNIVERSAL linkable bar.
