The CFL Lead & Lampholder consists of an E40 lampholder attached to a mains cord - no reflector is included. It is ideal when using CFL lights like the Eco-Light as a supplementary grow light because you are able to hang the lamp vertically in-between your plants. The CFL Lead & Lampholder can also be used to suspend a CFL above plants as a main growing light, but we would strongly recommend using a suitable reflector (the SunMate CFL Reflector or BAY6 CFL Reflector for example) if this is your intention.
For your convenience we have created two kits based around the CFL Lead & Lampholder. These give you the choice of having it supplied with either a blue or red spectrum Eco-Light.

Questions and Answers (7)Will standard CFL screw in bulbs fit this power lead as I want to buy coloured CFL bulbs and hang them from my grow tent for different spectrums ?The CFL Lead & Lampholder has an E40 lamp fitting, this will not accomodate standard household lamps.
Written by Deano | 20 Jul 2014Hey, can you use HPS/MH bulbs with this fitting?You can’t use this reflector for HPS/MH bulbs, you would need to run these using a ballast & reflector. All of our Proxima, Hobby, & Exolux systems will run both HPS & MH bulbs, the bulb needs to be of the same power rating as the ballast.

Written by simon | 28 Oct 2012Does this come with a bulb or is it just the lead?The CFL lead & lampholder is available on it's own, or with your choice of blue or red lamp. You would use the blue spectrum lamp for vegatative growth, & the red for flowering.
