JBJ Macro-Glo Adjustable Refugium Light Information




JBJ Macro-Glo Adjustable Refugium Light

  • Adjustable Clamp on Fixture (Similar to C-Breeze)
  • Integrated Ballast inside lamp, no ballast to replace
  • 15 Watt lamp
The energy efficient MACRO-GLO refugium light is the smart solution for sumps that require powerful light output in a space-saving form. The MACRO-GLO securely clamps to the rim of the sump and can be easily positioned out of the way for routine maintenance without the fear of dropping the fixture in the water.

These unique lamps equal 5 times the brightness of traditional incandescent lamps while producing less heat and lasting an amazing 8000 hours. Each lamp has integrated ballast and fits the standard medium based lamp socket. Lamps will be the only item that needs to be replaced!

The MACRO-GLO is offered in 15 & 25 watt versions. They are installed with a 6400K Daylight to promote macro algae in refugium environments. All models include a parabolic reflector to maximize light intensity and coverage.

The MACRO-GLO can be adjusted at the head, arm, and base to fit your desired application. The unique articulation allows endless configurations for virtually any refugium. The clamp includes a spacer and allows for 360 degrees rotation.



Specifications

Approximate Dimensions: Lamp Housing: 8 3/4" x 4 1/4" x 3"

Comments: This light's clamp does not fit on the rim of my sump. I didn't feel like the return hassle so I super glued the parts of the clamp on to the rim and so far has worked fine.

Comments: I have had the unit in operation for 4 days and the bulb has already gone out. Since the bulb is roughly a third of the price of the fixture I would say definitely NOT worth the money. I am looking for a new HOB refugium fixture.

Comments: Very happy with this 25 watt light. It does the job...I was a little nervous about the clamp. My sump is 1/2" acrylic and wasen't sure if it would fit... well no problem, it fits great, and is very secure. Yes I would recommend the light !

Comments: I have this light attached to my DIY Refugium that has a large amount of Chaeto growing and is teaming with pods. The rock has a lot of color since I added this light. It is easy to use, the mount could have been a little better but it works. The only complaint I have is there is no splash guard for the bulb. Meaning if you have bubbles in popping under the light the water will reach the light and leave salt creep on the bulb. Otherwise it is a great light for the price. I would recommend this light.

Comments: The product failed within 2 days of use. It had an electrical short that nearly fried my aquarium controller and caused an electrical surge that shut my entire tank down. Would not turn back on after this and I returned it. Typical JBJ cheap, poorly made junk!

Poor Quality

Experience Level: Intermediate


Comments: Works ok now, after 2 warranty replacements. Very poor construction, Poor quality on fixture and especially poor bulb quality. JBJ has sent replacements, very frustrating to deal with warranty department. Do not rely on this product to provide trouble free use, if you insist on buying, BUY A SECOND BULB, you will need it! Does not live up to the 5000 hour bulb life claim.
