Introducing Hyperdrive™ Technology

The latest leap forward in LED lighting from AquaIllumination® is Hyperdrive™ HD Technology which gives you power and color where you want it for your freshwater plants & fishes, with the freedom to use your smartphone or computer as a controller.

This unique innovation in aquarium lighting allows you to direct power from the LED colours you have turned down to use with the colours you want to turn up, providing you with access to the maximum power output of your light, regardless of your choice of spectrum and creating the most vivid colours in your tank you have ever seen.

By coupling HD technology with custom almost optically perfect, 80 degree, colour blending lenses we can direct all of the light into the aquarium, exactly where it is needed,  with minimal light loss or annoying glare for the observer.

..... Brilliantly simple and brighter than bright
