The Hydra 52 is easily one of the most power-dense LED lights available to the marine aquarist, with fifty two different LEDs delivering 135 watts of bleeding edge lighting. A spanking new Hydra 52 LED currently retails for $599 but If you are a current owner of the AI Sol or AI Vega LED, you can upgrade your legacy lighting system to AI’s best for half the price.
The AquaIllumination Hydra 52 upgrade kit costs $299 per light provided you already have the heatsink and fan of your previous light. Having frequently assembled and disassembled all of AquaIllumination’s various lights, we can assure you that putting all the pieces together is easy and hassle free, all you need is an allen wrench.
With the most important internal components of the AI Hydra 52 available at such a steep discount, it is possible that some people will try to use some other generic heatsink, or even fashion together their own Hydra 104 but keep in mind this will certainly void the warranty, and could lead to premature failure. Irregardless of this potential loss of sales, AquaIllumination has always prioritized the needs of their legacy LED light owners who can now turn some of the best lights of yesteryear into one of the best lights of today.
