The Angel LED is a new aquarium LED light from EuroQuatics, a newcomer to the aquarium world but its parent company has been doing lighting for years. More than four years ago we first detailed Gavita Lighting‘s illumination prowess with their work on Plasma technology and we always hope that they would turn a deliberate eye to the aquarium hobby.
Now that Gavita is working with LED lighting, they couldn’t have a better time or a better way to enter the aquarium world than with a dedicated EuroQuatics aquarium lighting company. EuroQuatics this past weekend launched a new LED light called the Angel LED A1, which is more of a platform than a single light model.
The EuroQuatics Angel LED is only the second aquarium light to follow the Radion’s ventrally mounted fan design and it has a similar physical size, shape and footprint. Whether the Angel LED is the result of flattery or convergent designs is a debate for the peanut gallery, but similarities aside, the Angel LED appears to be a very capable light with versatility in the options of LED modules and types of lenses used.
The Angel LED will come in two models, the Angel LED A1 with a rating of up to 95 watts at $575 and the Angel LED A1p with a maximum power of 150 watts for hundred bucks more at $675. Both the A1 and A1p come with cool white, blue, royal blue and violet LEDs while the A1p is additionally souped up with red and green diodes for full color rendition. That pricing and choice of power levels makes the Angel LED a very competitive new LED light but wait there’s more!
Both Angel LEDs come with built-in WiFi and ‘Euronet’, meaning that intermediary devices (like Reeflinks and Directors) are not required to make your lights dance through available iOS and Android applications. The finish, feature set and price point of the Angel LED are very attractive, making EuroQuatics a company to watch out for in the aquarium lighting space. [EuroQuatics]
