If you’ve been looking to get a bump in light output from your existing power compact lighting but don’t necessarily want to increase the power consumption thereof, NanoTuners is finally coming through with deliveries of their specially designed PCR lamps from UVL. The PCR lamps are those built with an internal reflector, very much like the stock VHO lamps, and NanoCustoms claims 50% higher initial output from a PCR lamp over the same PC lamp with no reflector.
The PCR lamps come in an all white, a dual 420 and 470 nm blue or a combination of blue and white. So far the PCR are available in the typical sizes of nano tanks, 18, 24 and 36 watts, which are all available from $22 to $24 and shipping immediately. The PCR lamps cost only a buck or two more than their bareback counterparts but if it delivers on the increased intensity and all you have to do is change out your bulbs, then we could see these lamps as a great cost effective way to reduce your lighting bill since you can run fewer lamps or run them for less time, or you can increase your output by simply changing lamps.
