    4/20 SALE

    Hey there Roll it Up!

    We are URSA LED, formerly known as Starlite-LED.

    We’ve been silent for awhile now, busy with the rebranding process. But we’re back and we are continuing where we left off as Starlite! For those who don't remember/ have no idea who we are, I've included a couple of links to our older posts as a refresher!



    It is my pleasure to present to you guys our new flagship fixture, the URSA Optilux. This fixture utilizes URSA’s customized spectrum directed towards plant growth.

    Running at a true 640 watts, the Optilux delivers a stunning 1500 PPFD @ 2ft from the canopy with 400 PPFD on the edges of a 4 x 4 area.

    As 4/20 is approaching, we wanted to give everyone here a chance to try out our new Optilux fixture at a discounted price. For the next week, following 4/20, we will be selling Optilux fixtures for $1,200! A 25% discount off our $1,600 sticker price.

    ADDITIONALLY! We will be selling our Helios 185W and Helios 320W fixtures in our DUET spectrum for only $215 and $370 respectively.

    At URSA, we like to keep it simple. Just mention RIU in your inquiry and we’ll automatically include the promotional pricing. If you’ve been waiting for the right moment to pull the trigger on some new lights, wanted to venture into LED or just wanted to try them but not at full price, NOW’S YOUR CHANCE!! Please direct any inquiries to [email protected] or PM us here!

    Are you in the Bay Area? Would you like to tour our office? Let us know! We’d be happy to show you our technology face-to-face.





    *Yes, you can remove the bracket and the wires, so you can choose to use either or.*

    Seems reasonable for a 16 cob fixture.

    Looks about like what I'd expect from that wattage. Like every other commercial LED grow light I've seen, it directs it all straight down, so plenty of intensity directly under the fixture but very little outward from it. I'll give you a suggestion how to beat every other such light on the market, and it's not even that hard to do. Instead of the flat heat sinks, which require flat mounting of the LEDs, you could use round heat sinks, commonly available, one on each of the outer COBs, and then mounted in such a way that they are independently adjustable, like track lights. Then people could do what is clearly required to get any kind of usable intensity on the outer perimeter, adjust those COBs so that they point outward instead of down. What you have there is a square spotlight. Granted a rather nice spotlight, but a spotlight nonetheless.

    I find this to be the problem with all prefabed lights.. Packed too close together .. DIY is the way to go.. Build and space your cobs how you like.. At a cheaper price..

    BobCajun Well-Known Member

    Yes, ultimately a 4 foot square fixture would be the most even light distribution, but to keep a fixture fairly small for convenient shipping it would either have to be extendable, like sliding sections, or each COB individually adjustable. The fixture which is the subject of this thread is competitive with other similar wattage fixtures. I'm just saying that with an adjustable design it would be ahead of the pack.

    I have been looking into these lights a bit and am quite interrested. Instead of a round heatsink, make it either smaller pieces that attatch together or a big panel with each one having hinges that lock in multiple positions so you get the angle with directed light.
    also with 125w chips, throw some fans in there and make them dimmable and with 100w power capabillity with fans kicking in on temperature switch. For the price point would be nice extras.
    Just an idea..
    these guys also make a massive single chip, I dont know what you would drive it with but I was talking to a guy named sang. seems like a good guy.

    THIS is a company that I have been intrigued about from the start....but the updates and responses are so random and inattentive, I just don't have the confidence in them. Their website is NEVER updated and a lot of technical information isn't available.....all the stuff that LED people want to know about....But the idea people behind the products seem to be on it....Beyond that...nope. They are such a big company, they can't see me, I guess.

    Hi tstick,

    We definitely see you! We are not so big that we cannot see the community in which our products are built for and that you guys are the ones that drive our success! We are all working very diligently to get our name out. I appreciate all the kind words from you in the past! I understand everyone's concerns about LED and how it may be cheaper to go the DIY route.

    We put a ton of research into the technology that goes behind these fixtures, everything is optimized. We are not telling people to switch from DIY over to our fixtures, we are simply saying that there are a ton of people buying "high end" LED fixtures at a premium price that are not getting a premium fixture in return. Also that we are confident that we offer that premium fixture, utilizing new and patented LED technology to hopefully change the general consensus that LEDs are not the way to go. It is a shame to hear all these LED grow light horror stories from the past, and it is a hurdle that we are constantly jumping over.

    I hope you understand where we are coming from, your support means more to us than you think. Any chance you'd like to give the Optilux a try and let everyone on here know your thoughts first hand?

    Can the lenses be removed from the 4 center cobs or all of them by any chance?

    tstick Well-Known Member

    Is this Alex?

    If so, then yeah, man. Hit me up on PM and we'll talk some more!

    nevergoodenuf Well-Known Member

    Alex is no longer with them. I think Ken is taking his place on the forum?

    Hi Hybridway,

    Yes, the lens' can be removed from any of the COBs. Although we do not recommend doing so, as each lens was chosen carefully to get the best light distribution without losing intensity.

    Hi tstick,

    Unfortunately, Alex is no longer with our company. My name is Ken and I am the new forum rep for URSA. I will reach out to you via PM to talk some more!

    URSA LED Well-Known Member Rollitup Advertiser

    Hi nevergoodenuf,

    Hit the nail on the head! Thanks!

    BobCajun Well-Known Member

    You could actually just get some LED track light housings and put better COBs in them than the normal ones. Four tracks with four lights on each one, sliding and pivoting. Why would anyone want to use something other than LED track lights for grow lighting? They're perfect for it.


    Hybridway Well-Known Member

    Why, is there 110-120• lenses in the middle & 90• on the edges? That would be the way to go, no?
    Nice looking fixture BTW!
