How is the MIGRO product packaged?
The lights are packed in plain cardboard boxes. The boxes are double wall and the lights are packaged securely in bubble wrap and foam packaging to prevent damage during transit.
Where is the MIGRO product manufactured?
We assemble and test all our lights in our workshop in Dublin, Ireland. We buy in the LED drivers (transformers) from Hong Kong to a custom MIGRO specification. Our LED’s are sourced from major LED manufacturers, Seoul , Samsung and Osram. The aluminium components are manufactured in China and we machine and finish them in Ireland. The rest of the components are sourced through local suppliers.
We keep a stock of all the components for warranty purposes.
What if I am unhappy with the order when I receive it?

What if I have a problem with my light after the 14 day period?
The light is guaranteed for three years. Any light failures within that period will be replaced with no charge to the customer. Full details are in the terms and conditions on the website
What Plugs types are available other than US, Europe and UK types?
We can provide special plug types by request. Please contact us through the contact page and we will let you know if your plug type is possible.
What temperature should the Driver and heatsink for the light?
The light heatsink and driver both operate at about 20 deg. C or 70 F above ambient temperature. So at 25 degrees C or 77 F room temp the driver and heatsink will be about 45 deg. C or 115 F. This is perfectly normal and is totally safe. To minimise the temperature locate the driver down low at the air intake and have the outtake moving air across the heatsink.
If the driver case temperature gets to 90 DegC or 195 F the output current will be reduced. If the temperature does not reduce then it powers off until temperatures have reduced.
Are the MIGRO lights upgradeable?
Yes, they are. If LEDs improve in efficiency enough in the future to justify an upgrade you can replace the LED with a future generation model.
Do the MIGRO lights generate heat?
Yes, they do. The LED’s are the most efficient in the market but they still produce heat. They do not produce radiant heat from the bulb like High Intensity Discharge (HPS, MH etc) light bulbs but they emit heat through the heat sink. About 50% of the total power consumed by high efficiency LED’s goes to heat which is much less than HID which would emit about 70% of it’s consumed power as heat.
How do I control MIGRO grow lights?
Each Light is powered by an LED driver (a transformer that converts AC power from the socket to DC power for the LED). The LED driver can be plugged straight into a timer switch to control the on/off light cycle.
Can I use the MIGRO lights for all stages of plant growth, vegging and flowering?
Yes you can. The MIGRO light output is full spectrum, white light. The levels of each light spectrum is closely matched to sunlight and is ideal for healthy plant growth from seedlings to harvest.
