The Ultimate Red Light At Home Device Review 2024: Wall Panels Special!
On this page
Video ULTIMATE Red Light Comparison 2024: EXTENDED Cut! This is the video version of my red light therapy at home device review of 2024!

Best Wall Panel Comparison Introduction

Welcome everyone! Behind me, I have 17 red light therapy panels. I'm going to compare them all in this extended cut version of my red light therapy series with additional commentary.

I'll be evaluating them all across many different categories to determine which one deserves the 2024 Best Red Light Therapy Panel Award. It's going to be a crazy battle of the panels!

This review is for those who want to take a deep dive and know exactly how I've done the scoring. I'm going to share all my insights, commentary, and analysis.

I'm also going to be sharing all the key features regarding price, power, wavelengths, EMF, sound/noise, ease of operation, features I like, and any things I don't like about these panels.

I have used and reviewed all of these panels individually, so I know what's good about them, and I know what stinks. I've been doing this for a long time, and I can't wait to share all my eye-popping evaluations with you!

I've been reviewing and experimenting with red light therapy panels for many years now. This is what my Light Therapy Insiders company is all about. I am passionate about light therapy because it has worked very well for me and so many members of our community.

I want to help you get all the best information as well as any discounts available to my readers. If you purchase products through my links in this article and use my discount codes, then I receive a small commission at no cost to you which funds these reviews.

I aim to be affiliated with all light therapy companies to be as impartial as possible. Whether or not I am affiliated with a company does not impact my product evaluations. I always strive to share useful, factual information, so that you are empowered with all the knowledge you want to decide which products are best for you.

This extensive article is going to go above and beyond. It is longer because there's going to be a lot more to cover. If you're serious about buying a red light therapy panel, then this video is for you.

For each round, I will rank each of these 17 panels from worst getting one point to best earning 17 points. Each round is going to cover a different category. The winner of the round will receive a maximum of 17 points in that category. Last place will receive one point.

Of course, when it comes to things such as price or power output, it's very easy to rank a panel with highly straightforward and objective metrics. However, when it comes to evaluating more subjective aspects such as operation or size even wavelengths, there are a lot of complex factors that I consider.

I've built a scoring system that reflects which panel is the best for that particular topic. There is an unavoidable element of subjectivity involved, but I've done my best to be fair and impartial in evaluating each product's advantages and disadvantages.

After eight rounds, we're going to total up the points and see which panel is the 2024 winner. Be sure to stick around until the end of the video because not only will I be announcing the winning panel, I will also be featuring some additional awards. Strap yourself in, this is going to be an exciting ride!

Round One: LED Count And Width Overview

All of the panels in this comparison have 300 LEDs or less. When I first started doing the series back in 2019, the panels were all very similar in size, so it was easy to compare them.

Now in 2024, there are so many different shapes and sizes. Honestly, it's quite challenging to make a comparison series like this. So, I had to put some restrictions in place for it to be an apples to apples comparison. Therefore, I've limited the panel size to no more than 300 LEDs for inclusion in this series.

Here in round one, I'm looking at LED count, as well as the width which I calculate as the distance across the LEDs over the width of the panel. I'm not measuring the panel width, but rather the LED width.

You see, the more LEDs you're getting and the wider those LEDs are spaced out, the better the light coverage on the body which is exactly what you want when you're buying a panel and needing a nice large treatment area.

Is there such a thing as being too spread out? Theoretically, yes. In practice, I am not seeing panels erring on the side of having their LEDs spread too thin. However, I do wish that those with more tightly compacted LED density would distribute that power across a wider area.

Why am I only focusing on width here? What about height? Well, as you look at the 17 rectangular panels in this comparison series, you will notice that they are all roughly the same basic shape of a narrow, vertical rectangle. By and large, greater width correlates with increased length.

What about the one off situations where a panel is disproportionately long without being any wider? You will be glad to know that I do make an exception for them and give them a bonus point for length later in this comparison.

What about a panel that is disproportionately short while having a generous width? I have not docked points for that because I value width over height.

Is there a point at which I would create a category for height and only give points to longer panels? Hypothetically, yes. If we start seeing square wall panels in the future, I may reconsider this aspect of my scoring system.

As of 2024, all these wall panels are a close enough apples to apples comparison to be included in this series and for my scoring system to be built on the practical reality of the type of panels that have already been built for me to evaluate.

How would I score a circle or triangle shaped panel on width? I will cross that bridge when I come to it. For now, I am evaluating 17 panels that all look rather similar at first glance. My metrics and system is designed to distinguish the key differences and between them.

I value LED count and LED width most, so I combine those two metrics in this round in order to evaluate all 17 from best to worst. I'm going to share each of the key facts and provide any additional insights that you may find helpful in deciding which panel to buy.

Round One: LED Count And Width Results

In last place, tied for 16th place equal with 1.5 points each, we have both Joovv Solo 3.0 and Infraredi Pro Flex Max.

Both of these panels only have 150 LEDs which is only half as many as all the panels in this comparison series that have the full maximum amount of 300 LEDs.

Both of these panels are quite narrow measuring only 6.61 inches (in) across the LEDs. (Spoiler alert: The widest of these 17 panels is about double that at 12.72 inches across.)

In 15th place with 3 points, we have the CytoLED Triplex. It has 210 LEDs, and it's 6.9 in across.

Four panels ranked 11th equally in round one with 5.5 points ranging from about 200 to 230 LEDs and all about 7 or 7 1/2 in across:

Mito Light Biohacker 4.0 has 204 LEDs and is 6.93 inches.
Kala Red Light Elite has 231 LEDs with a 6.85 in spacing across the LEDs.
GembaRed OverClocked has a 7.6 in width and 200 LEDs.
Bon Charge Hive Max Red Light Therapy Device has 200 LEDs and an LED width of 7.4 inches.

In 10th place, is Hooga Ultra1500. It has 300 LEDs which is great! However, it's only 7.6 in across.

In ninth place, we have Red Therapy Company RedRush 840 Pulse. This has 280 LEDs and is 7.68 in across.

In eighth place, is Mito Red Light MitoPro 1500 X. The 300 LEDs is great! It's only down by the width since that is only 7.6 in across making it an inch or two narrower.

It is nice and long so it may get a point for that later. You can always put two panels together with any of these body panels.

We have SIX panels in an equal tie for first runner up! All of these panels had 13.5 points, 300 LEDs, and they all were over 9 and 1/2 in across.

These are typically what I refer to as a 12 in panel because it's 12 in from outside edge of the middle to the outside edge to the middle, but you're only getting about 9 1/2 in of light coverage.

They're all doing equally well though in a six-way tie for second place! Each of these 6 panels has a whopping 300 LEDs which is DOUBLE what some of the other contenders have!

All six of these have an LED width right around 9.6 inches across the LEDs that gives them really nice light coverage which is important! Take a good look at all these panels with both impressive width and LED count!
Rouge Care Pro G3
Scienlodic BioEpic P1500
PlatinumLED BioMax 900
Rojo Light Therapy Refine 900
Block Blue Light PowerPanel Mega
Idoo Lighting 1500 Therapy Lamp from Alibaba
First place goes to LightpathLED Diesel XL Shortie 2.0! This panel is deservedly in first place because the width is second to none. It's super wide being 12.72 in across.

That extra width means you're going to get expansive coverage of light. Sure, it's not doing the full body, but it's hitting from shoulder to shoulder depending on your frame size.

It missed out on one point for its LED count since it only has 254 LEDs which puts it 40-some LEDs behind the six panels with 300.

I scored the width in tiers. It came in 2 tiers above all the rest with its impressive width. This gave it a 2 point lead. So it still came out on top even after missing a point for LED count. It's a fair outcome because in my experience, generous width is more important
LightpathLED Diesel XL Shortie 2.0 is super wide being 12.72 in across

Round Two: Power Output Overview

Now in this round, we're looking at one simple thing: irradiance (Ee) which is power output density. It is measured as a ratio relationship of the power in milliwatts within a standard surface area of one square centimeter. This is abbreviated as mW/cm².

I measure these numbers using my spectrometer at a distance of 6 inches away. I take nine different readings to get an average. I take 6 readings around the edges and 3 more going down the middle. It gives me a pretty accurate way to measure how much therapeutic red light is being emitted from a panel.

Surprisingly, when companies have their product tested by a lab, only one reading is done in the center of the panel to give the single highest reading.

Some companies may use a solar meter is used instead. That will skew the results to make the panel look TWICE as powerful as it really is because solar meters are designed to measure sunlight not LED light.

Some companies use those doubly high readings from solar meters for marketing purposes. The product may look like it is 200mW/cm² on the company's website based on their solar meter results.

However, when I test the panel with my spectrometer which is the best device for measuring LED light, it may show a much lower reading of only 80mW/cm².

Technically, it is not false advertising since that is what the solar meter shows. Yet, the customer may not realize a solar meter was used instead of a spectrometer, so it creates confusion.

This is why I believe using the right tool for the job and sticking to my consistent testing methodology helps clear things up to give my community the most accurate apples to apples comparison.

All my power irradiance measurements are done with my spectrometer. It cost me around 4-5 thousand dollars. I am convinced this is the best device for measuring LED light. I do my best to give you highly accurate numbers when it comes to the measurements that determine the rankings.

I'm ranking the panels on irradiance in this round. The greater the power concentration, the more light energy going into the body and also the deeper it's going to penetrate.

There is no down side to a higher powered panel because anyone wanting less power can easily stand further away from their panel to reduce the energy intensity reaching their body.

Many panels have the ability to lower the irradiance intensity as well. My priorities may differ somewhat from yours. Hopefully, all my data will help you even if you have your own way of evaluating what matters most to you.

For everyone who wants more light that goes deeper into their body, as I do, the panels that are putting out the most energy score higher and the weaker ones are leaving power points on the table resulting in a lower score.

Round Two: Power Output Results

Starting at the bottom and working our way up looking at each panel's average irradiance across nine different readings at a distance of 6 inches using a ruler:
Bon Charge Hive Max Red Light Therapy Device with 31mw/cm² is in 17th place.
GembaRed OverClocked with 38mw/cm² is in 16th place.
Idoo Lighting 1500 Therapy Lamp from Alibaba with 45mw/cm² is in 15th place.
CytoLED Triplex with 54mw/cm² is in 14th place.
LightpathLED Diesel XL Shortie 2.0 with 56mw/cm² is in 13th place.
Joovv Solo 3.0 with 59mw/cm² is in 12th place.
Mito Light Biohacker 4.0 with 66mw/cm² is in 11th place.

Tied for ninth equal, we have two panels: the Scienlodic BioEpic P1500 and the Mito Red Light MitoPro 1500X both of them had 68mw/cm².

Now I'll just pause here quickly to point out that all of these panels are going to put out a decent amount of therapeutic red light. It's not like any of these panels aren't working adequately.

Even using Bon Charge Hive Max Red Light Therapy Device at 31mw/cm² for 12 minutes works out to about 10 Jules and that is sufficient for skin health purposes. So, at that strength, you're still going to get skin deep benefits for alleviating skin issues like sunburn, psoriasis, uneven spots, redness, and wrinkles.

It's just not going to be the best option if you want either shorter treatment times or you want deeper penetrating light for your organs, muscles, joints, and bones.

Now we are about to start seeing significant figures comparable to the top three rankings in my last comparison where MitoPro 1500 took first place with 76 mW/cm², and we're still only in eighth place! So, let's evaluate the remaining eight powerful options.

Infraredi Pro Flex Max at 72mw/cm² is in 8th place. Rojo Light Therapy Refine 900 at 73mw/cm² is in 7th place. Red Therapy Company RedRush 840 Pulse at 76mw/cm² is in 6th place.

If you want a panel with plenty of power, anything over 80 is exceptionally high in my books. Rouge Care Pro G3 has 81mw/cm² and is in 5th place.
Our third runner up is the Hooga Ultra1500 at 82mw/cm².
Our second runner up is Kala Red Light Elite at 84mw/cm².
Block Blue Light PowerPanel Mega 4.0 is our first runner up with a whopping 87mw/cm²!
PlatinumLED BioMax 900 8th gen 2024 edition wins this round with a crazy 90mw/cm² of therapeautic light!
PlatinumLED BioMax 900 8th gen wins this round with 90mw/cm²

Standings After The Power Round

Now that we've got the points for round two, let's add them all together to have a look at the overall placements so far.

PlatinumLED BioMax 900 moved to the top with 30.5 points. Block Blue Light PowerPanel Mega 4.0 is right behind in second place.
Rouge Care Pro G3 is only one point behind in third place.
Rojo Light Therapy Refine 900 is in fourth.
LightpathLED Diesel XL Shortie 2.0 has dropped down four positions to be tied for fifth now.

Round Three: Wavelengths Overview

All right, so round three with wavelengths. The goal here is to reward panels that are offering a wide range of therapeutic wavelengths while also providing a nice blend of light. So, I've broken this round into five scoring parts.

Firstly, we look at how many wavelengths it's emitting. If it's only two your traditional 660nm and 850nm, that gets zero points. If it has three or four wavelengths, that's worth one point. Five or six wavelengths earns 2 points. Seven or more deserves 3 points. The more wavelengths, the better.

Secondly, I give panels that are emitting 810nm near infrared light at point because I'm impressed with the quality and quantity of research behind 810nm. I think it is a game changer when it comes to red light therapy.

There's a lot more science behind 810nm light than the traditional 850nm. I think there's a lot of promise for greater health benefits.

A lot of medical-grade devices use 808 or 810nm lasers. For this reason, I think a panel that is putting 810nm light in it will prove to be a better product, so any panel with the 810nm is given a point.
A lot of medical-grade devices use 808 or 810nm lasers because there's a lot more science behind 810nm light than the traditional 850nm.

Thirdly, I look at whether it has multi-chip technology. Now, when you look at a panel you see the LEDs. More accurately, I should say these are LED bulbs or LED lenses because when you look closely inside you can see that there are chips inside each of these lenses. 

In the first round, I talked about LED count as the number of clearly visible LED bulbs. Technically, these are LED lenses typically made of clear plexiglass (PMMA).

When you dive in deeper into that LED there will be a diode chip inside there. Traditionally, panels have used single chip LEDs, and we still see that with some panels even today.

Traditionally, panels only had single chips of just one chip per lens. As companies innovate, we're now seeing panels that are squeezing multiple diode chips inside each lens with two... three... or even four chips providing far more power under the hood of each lens.

So, if a panel has dual chip lenses it gets one point. Triple chip earns two points. Quad chip deserves three points. 

I did this because a panel that has multiple chip LEDs is able to blend their light a lot better. Instead of getting 660nm here, 850nm there, 810nm here, and 630nm there, multi-chip technology can pack 2-4 of those wavelengths into one lens which gives you more wavelengths within a tighter space.

This means, you're going to get a much better blend of light coming from those panels, and the end result is you get a nice even spread on the body.

Now, I know it's somewhat controversial because some companies say, "Look, the further away from the panel you go, the better the light coverage is anyway even if it has single chip LEDs."

That may be true of some panels, especially with the power outputs we're seeing. You can stand at 12 inches away from those, compared to say 6 inches with weaker panels. However, I am trying to find the best overall panel. I think multi-chip LEDs is something that deserves to be rewarded in a panel, so that's why it's in here.

Fourthly, I reward panels that have any unique wavelength. Traditionally, you have your standard 660nm, your 850nm. You also have what are now common wavelengths such as 630nm and 830nm light, but a couple years ago, even these wavelengths were new.

I'm also looking at whether the panel has any unique wavelengths that we haven't seen in other panels before. Those get points for breaking the mold. Here we are in 2024. I want to reward panels that are going beyond these four basic ones.

If there is a beneficial wavelength in there that no other panel has, I'm going to give a point for each unique wavelength it has.

Fifthly, I'm looking at the blend of light and evaluating how the power in the panel is spread across those wavelengths.

Imagine if 98% of the panel's energy goes to LED diode chips of one wavelength and then the remaining 2% of the LEDs are split between four other wavelengths, that may look good for advertising blurbs that the panel has 5 different wavelengths.

But that's only a drop in the bucket dose of those last four wavelengths, so I reward panels that have a nice balanced blend of light evenly distributed across the board.

To accomplish this, I look at how many wavelengths have 15% or more of the panel's energy going to that wavelength. The reason why I do this is so that panels that are spreading the light out evenly not only through multi-chip LEDs but also from a power output are going to get rewarded because the end result is a much nicer blend of balanced light.

Picture a panel that has seven different wavelengths with the energy split fairly evenly between them with 15% of the diode chips allocated to each of the first six wavelengths and the remaining 10% of the chips' energy going to a 7th wavelength.

That hypothetical panel with seven wavelengths is going to get six points for its well-balanced blend of light in this round, one point for each wavelength accounting for 15% or more of the panel's energy.

I'm happy to discuss or debate this in the comments below or head over to the Facebook group to continue the conversation. I'll put a link to that below.

I have put a lot of thought into what I want in a panel. What is most important to you? Would you give a panel with 98% of the energy going to one wavelength the same amount of points as the panel with 90% of the energy evenly distributed between 6 different wavelengths at 15% to 20% each?

I strive to make my metrics meaningful for my audience to help you evaluate what would be the most ideal panel for you. I also recognize that any metric can be endlessly debated. Trust me, I really deliberate over my decisions in how to best evaluate light therapy panels because I want to reward panels with the very best features that will provide the most benefits.

Would you award points for an even distribution but set the percentage and points differently than my 15% with 6 possible points criteria? There are plenty of possibilities. What would you choose? 20% & 5 points, 25% & 4 points, 33% & 3 points for 33%, 50% & 2 points or 1 point for every panel regardless?

What would you do if a panel had 7 wavelengths evenly distributed between the panel's LED diode chips that each had 14.29% of the panel's power? In this 2024 series, such a panel is a mere mental projection and would fall below the 15% threshold thus earning 0 points.

Had there been a panel like that in the running, would it have influenced my scoring system to give a point for every wavelength with 14% of the power or more allocated to it?

Any decision to reduce the percentage cut off would mean awarding the same seven points for any panel regardless of if it had six blue hues and one red or if it had a variety of red and infrared light with one blue wavelength. Should a red light therapy panel that only has 14% beneficial red light receive 7 points? I don't think so.

How would you score it if a panel were built with 600 different wavelengths and 0.17% of the power going to each one of those?

A panel like that would be similar to sunlight if all 600 different wavelengths were evenly distributed across the therapeutic light spectrum from the low end of 400nm purple light just above invisible UV rays to the top end of the range around 1000nm/1mm invisible near infrared wavelengths felt as heat.

Would you prefer that even blend of light with a micro dose of each of those hundreds of different wavelengths that may or may not have any scientifically studied benefits? Or would you choose to go all in on a panel with only one wavelength such as 810nm light if it had the most scientific proof backing it?

Would you want that panel with 100% of the single 810nm wavelength to get fewer points than a panel with 6 different wavelengths with fewer scientific proven benefits ranging from the low end of red that's nearly orange at 625nm and going down into the amber, green, blue and violet hues? There's a case to be made for both sides, right?

You can see why I invest an enormous amount of time and energy into preparing for these comparison series where I have the weight of responsibility to consider all the factors and weigh in on what I believe is the most beneficial for the majority of my audience while recognizing that everyone has their own preferences.

Do you think the best scoring system is designed with every hypothetical panel in mind? Or do you prefer a more practical approach of creating the system around comparing and contrasting the panels on the market today? I wrestle with these variables so that you don't have to... unless you want to. If that's you, all my data here will aid your quest for the very best wall panel for you in 2024.

Round Three: Wavelengths Results

So, now that you know all of that, there's a lot of numbers to crunch here. The best thing to do if you want to really geek out on all this is to go over to the interactive Shopping Tool data table on my website. Study your favorite panels to see the big picture perspective. 

So, I'm going to show all the results after I've scored them. We're going to work from the bottom up. Knowing all of that, here was the outcome for this round.

In last place, which worked out to be 12th equal, we have a SIX-way tie because all of these panels get three and a half series points:
Rouge Care Pro G3
Red Rush 840 Pulsed
Kala Red Light Elite
Joovv Solo 3.0
Idoo Lighting 1500 Therapy Lamp from Alibaba
CytoLED Triplex

The reason why these place last is because each of one only emit the basic 660nm and 850nm light. There's nothing special going on here. I consider products with only these two wavelengths the classic, old school, standard edition, red light therapy panels.

Now, it's important to note that these panels aren't bad. You're still going to get a therapeutic dose of light. A couple years ago, panels like this were all you could get, and I was helped by those early panels.

So if you have one of these tried-and-true panels, or you're going to get one of these panels for other reasons, don't think you're buying a lemon because that's not the case. Rest assured, even those are still highly beneficial with their therapeutic red and near infrared light.

It's just that there are panels available to you that are going to be even more effective. As the scientific studies rolled in, many companies have rolled out new and improved versions with a wider variety of wavelengths, so some companies have been significantly improving their panels over the years to keep up with the scientific advancements by adding additional wavelengths.

I know it doubles up a bit especially with that 810nm in there. As you're going to see soon, there are some panels that have multi-wavelength technology without any 810nm light. I'm glad that a lot of panels now have both multiple wavelengths and 810nm light. I did a video interview with Bart from my team after he did extensive research about 810nm light in this article on my website.

Since I have been quite impressed by the 810nm wavelength, there is the standalone point for that.

When we move up to 11th place, we see Bon Charge Hive Max Red Light Therapy Device. This has dual chip LEDs. So it gets a point there. In 10th place we have the Scienlodic BioEpic P1500 this has a couple of different wavelengths in it.

In eighth place, we have an equal tie. GembaRed OverClocked is putting out a bunch of wavelengths including 810nm. It has a good blend of light.

Infraredi Pro Flex Max on the other hand doesn't have as many wavelengths, but it is dual chip and has a good blend of light.

In sixth place we have the PlatinumLED BioMax 900 which is quite a unique panel with seven different wavelengths, so it's getting three points for each of those. It does have a 810nm light, so it's getting that point.

It doesn't have multi- chip lenses, since it's still using the older single chip lenses. The company representatives of PlatinumLED say it doesn't really matter because it's such a high-powered device that if you stand 12 inches from the panel you're going to get a good blend of light. Yet in my scoring system, it's not getting that point for multiple diodes.

PlatinumLED BioMax 900 does have two unique wavelengths. It has blue light in there which is great for some aspects of skin health such as clearing up acne. The newest edition is the 1060nm near infrared light.

We've been looking into this, and it is quite an exciting wavelength! I'll put a link below to an article explaining the benefits of 1060nm light. No other panels have either of these two wavelengths, so it's picking up two points for each of those unique wavelengths.

Finally, it doesn't get any points in the wavelength power segment. This is because majority of the energy in the BioMax 900 is going to 660nm and 850nm light the two more traditional wavelengths.

Although there are five other wavelengths in the panel, there is not very much energy allocated to those other wavelengths. This is a big reason why it came in at sixth place for this round. Yet because it has so many wavelengths at 810nm along with two unique wavelengths, it did do better than a lot of the competitors.

Remarkably, SIX panels earned first place equally for this round:
Block Blue Light PowerPanel Mega 4.0
Hooga Ultra1500
LightpathLED Diesel XL Shortie 2.0
Mito Light Biohacker 4.0
Rojo Light Therapy Refine 900
Mito Red Light MitoPro 1500 X
What's interesting here is all of these panels use 810nm light. They all have multi-chip technology. Furthermore, they also have a nice blend of power spread across all their wavelengths.

Yet, there are interesting variances between them. Block Blue Light PowerPanel Mega and Mito Light Biohacker 4.0 all have at least five wavelengths!

Another big difference is in the multi-chip section. The same five panels that all had five wavelengths are only using dual chip lenses. LightpathLED Diesel XL Shortie 2.0 actually uses triple chip lenses! Hooga Ultra1500 has quadruple chip lenses which is quite extraordinary!

When we look at the unique segment we see that Mito Red Light MitoPro 1500 X picked up a point because this new generation now includes 590nm amber light. This was quite a surprising addition. We have been looking through the research, and it is a very credible and exciting wavelength. So good for them picking up a point for that innovation.

Now that we have the points from that round, let's add them to the table and see how the panels are doing overall. What's interesting is Block Blue Light PowerPanel Mega 4.0 are back in the top spot.

PlatinumLED BioMax 900 have dropped down to second spot. It's still very close. In the top three panels, there's only a couple of points between them. We're not even halfway through the series yet, so it's exciting to have a close competition. Rojo Light Therapy Refine 900 moved up into third place.

LightpathLED Diesel XL Shortie 2.0 and Hooga Ultra1500 are tied for fourth equal. Both of these moved up one spot higher now. Rouge Care Pro G3 dropped down a couple places because it only has 660nm and 850nm light.

Mito Red Light MitoPro 1500 X is up four places! Mito Light Biohacker 4.0 is up three places. At the bottom, we see Joovv Solo 3.0 has slipped to down into 16th place. CytoLED Triplex is in last place.

If you're enjoying this article, can I ask you to share it with your like-minded friends because I've poured a lot of time, energy, and money into creating this article for you guys. I will be putting out a lot more content like this in the coming months, so I hope you stay tuned!

Round Four: Company Overview

In round four, we're looking at the company behind the panel. Now, the reason why I've included this round is because red light therapy is exploding. There are so many new companies starting up. There are so many panels on the market now. There are lot of cowboys out there.

It's very easy now to start up a red light therapy company without even touching a panel. All of these panels are made in Asia. Some of the factories are shipping direct to the customer. All someone needs to do is set up a website, do some marketing, and start making sales.

So the idea behind this round is to reward a panel that has a well-known company backing it. Here I'm looking at four things:

  • Warranty
  • Support
  • Time-Tested
  • Independent Testing 

Firstly, is warranty length since you're spending a lot of money on some of these panels you want to know it's going to last and if it doesn't that you're going to be looked after.

Secondly, support options are important. Do they have a phone number can you pick up the phone and ring them? Maybe you're not too sure how to set it up and need to call. Maybe there's a problem with the panel to troubleshoot on the phone. I think it's quite beneficial if the company has a phone number to reach their support team. 

Thirdly, I'm looking at time in business. New companies are popping up overnight. At the same time, there are a lot of companies here that have been around for a good long time. Remember the first time I did this series there were only six panels. Here we are just a couple of years later with a whopping 17 in the running! The good thing is that some of those companies from day one are still here today. 

Fourthly, we look at independent data. Are they sending in the panel off for independent testing and sharing that data?

Let's look at the results of evaluating these companies.

Round Four: Company Results

In last place, we have Bon Charge Hive Max Red Light Therapy Device because it only has a one year warranty. Though, they have been around for quite some time which is good.

Then we have eight companies in ninth equal place: XL Shortie 2.0, Scienlodic BioEpic P1500, Rojo Light Therapy Refine 900, Red Rush, Mito Light, Kala Red Light Elite, Joovv Solo 3.0, and Infraredi Pro Flex Max.

With all these companies you getting at least a two year warranty. Some of them are doing three year warranties. Unfortunately though, none of these companies are sharing independent testing data.

Two of the companies, Mito Light and Rojo Light Therapy have support options which is great! There's a wide range of how long these companies have been around. What's funny is the two companies that have phone support Mito Light and Rojo Light Therapy are both really new companies. They've only been in the space for a year or two.

Then we move up to the four companies tied for fifth place: Block Blue Light, CytoLED, Hooga Ultra1500, and Idoo Lighting. All of these companies have been around for a long time. All of them offer good warranty periods.
Our third runner up for this round is PlatinumLED BioMax 900. It has a 3-year warranty. There is a phone number you can call for support. They've been in business for a very long time. In fact, this is one of the original companies when it comes to red light therapy panels. Their panels have featured in all three of my comparison series. 

Unfortunately, at the time of filming PlatinumLED BioMax 900 does not yet have any published lab data. However, I do know that they working on something big in this area. I wish I could share more details. It would have been nice if at the time of filming their new lab system was in place because it is going to be amazing for the industry. But at the time of filming, I don't yet have any of this data, so it misses out on points here. 

In equal place tied for first runner up, we have GembaRed OverClocked and Rouge Care Pro G3. Both of these companies have sent their panels off for independent testing. They share their data too. Plus, they have been around for a few years, and they offer good support options as well. 
First place goes to Mito Red Light MitoPro 1500 X! This company is offering a 3-year warranty. They also have a phone number you can contact. They have also been in this space for quite some time featuring in all three of my comparison series.

Plus, if you head over to their product website you can see a direct link showing all their lab data. So that means Mito Red Light MitoPro 1500 X gets full points for this round and hence comes out on top!

It's interesting that Block Blue Light PowerPanel Mega 4.0 and PlatinumLED BioMax 900 are neck and neck for first place after four rounds. There is a really good battle emerging here. I'm excited to see how it plays out. 

After winning that last round, Mito Red Light MitoPro 1500 X jumped up three positions into third place only trailing the leaders by 5 and a half points. So it is a good push here by the defending champion. Will it get back into the top spot? We will see. 

Rojo Light Therapy Refine 900 slipped two places into fifth equal sharing that spot with Rouge Care Pro G3 which did perform well in that round.

If we look at other noticeable changes, LightpathLED Diesel XL Shortie 2.0 is down three into seventh place. GembaRed OverClocked is up five into ninth place equal. 

At the bottom, we have a few position changes with Bon Charge Hive Max Red Light Therapy Device in the last place. 

I am very pleased to see all the ways Mito Red Light is going above and beyond to serve their customers that won this round for their MitoPro 1500 X panel.

In my experience, PlatinumLED is also a solid company, and the only point it missed at the time of this comparison series was that it is not yet sharing its testing data from an independent third party company for the BioMax 900 8th generation.

I actually thought GembaRed OverClocked was going to do really well here in this round. But because it only has a 2-year warranty, it missed out on that one point and dropped down a position. 

LightpathLED Diesel XL Shortie 2.0 was a little bit tricky to score. This rank of ninth equal is partly because their warranty is pro rata which means it declines with passing time rather than giving you the full replacement value.

From the company's perspective, a pro-rata warranty makes sense in the context of the complex topic of depreciating value that is somewhat subjective.

From your perspective as a customer, if your product dies halfway through the warranty years, you don't really want to hear that you will only be getting part of your money back, so I gave LightpathLED Diesel XL Shortie 2.0 partial points.

The other thing is LightpathLED Diesel XL Shortie 2.0 does have a really good company support network on Facebook which definitely deserves some credit, but I couldn't give full points in consideration of each of you who are not on Facebook.

Scoring these categories is always so challenging because your unique preferences are important in regards to each variable (such as if a thriving Facebook support network is useful to you or not) is why I always recommend checking out my independent reviews on any of these panels rather than just going by the bottom line sum of points in my comparison series.

If there are a couple of panels you are considering, I'd encourage you to go check out my full review on each of those because that's where I share more details that may help you chose the panel that is best for you.

Round Five: Operation Overview

Moving on to round five next to evaluate operation. Here we are looking at ease of use, setup, and operating the panel. The key things I'm looking for here include:

  • Can you get more panels and clip them together with modular support?
  • Can you control multiple panels from one source?
  • Does it come with a remote control?
  • Is there an app?
  • Does it have a touchscreen control system on the panel?
  • Is there pulsing?
  • Does it have dimming to reduce the power output?
  • What are the stand options?
  • How many different stand options are there?
  • Can the panel be mounted on a wall?
  • Could it be mounted on a vertical stand?
  • Is there a stand with wheels?
  • Would it work to use a horizontal stand?
  • Could it be used with a motorized stand?

Round Five: Operation Results

Those are all the things I'm looking at in scoring this round.

We have four panels coming in at 14th equal which is last place: Bon Charge Hive Max Red Light Therapy Device, CytoLED Triplex, GembaRed OverClocked, and Idoo Lighting 1500 Therapy Lamp from Alibaba. Unfortunately, these panels don't have any extras such as modular support or a remote which is why these are all at rock bottom prices.

Kala Red Light Elite comes in at 13th place because it has modular support and some stand options. Moving up we have Red Therapy Company RedRush 840 Pulse and Scienlodic BioEpic P1500

In sixth place equal: Mito Red Light MitoPro 1500 X comes with an app, a touchscreen and dimming. LightpathLED Diesel XL Shortie 2.0 comes with a remote control, pulsing, and better stand options. Both of these panels have full modular support options.

Now in a tie for second runner up, we have Block Blue Light PowerPanel Mega 4.0, Joovv Solo 3.0 and Rouge Care Pro G3 all with great modular options. Each of these either have a remote control or an app.

Only the Block Blue Light PowerPanel Mega 4.0 has the touchscreen which I appreciate. All three panels have dimming and pulsing functions, as well as good stand options. 
So that leaves two panels in first place: PlatinumLED BioMax 900 and Rojo Light Therapy Refine 900. Both have great modular support. Both of them have an application which mimics exactly what you're doing on the touchscreen control panel which is a great feature. 

PlatinumLED BioMax 900 is really nice when connecting multiple panels wirelessly and works really well. It comes with a remote. I've given it one point for dimming, but it doesn't have any pulsing. It has the best range of stands out of any red light therapy company! I think there are four or five different stand options for it which is pretty cool. 

PlatinumLED BioMax 900 has wireless connectivity, a remote, dimming, and great stands.

Rojo Light Therapy Refine 900 doesn't come with a remote. It does have pulsing. It gets two points for dimming because what's quite unique here is that it allows you to dim individual wavelengths. 

So rather than dimming all the red or all the near infrared light, you can now choose to dim only 850nm near infrared light for example yet leave 810nm at 100% and the 830nm at 50%. No other panel can do that yet! That's why I gave them the extra point there for dimming. 

I'm very familiar with the PlatinumLED products. My family has used those panels for years, so I have a bunch of them in my home. They were the first to come out with a touchscreen on their panels. It has worked amazingly well, so it hasn't changed in all of these years. Now we're seeing other companies using touch screens which is why I've included a scoring point for that feature in this round here. 

Even things such as connecting multiple panels together is very simple to do. They have wireless connectivity, and you can do it all through your app. You can also use a remote or you can control it through the one panel. It works perfectly, so I'm not surprised by how well they did here. 

If it had pulsing, I would have given it the maximum points. I know the companies PlatinumLED and Mito Red Light have both always said, "Pulsing is just a gimmick."

That's entirely possible. I have a video and a blog article on pulsing. I'll put a link to that below so you can go check it out. But if it wasn't for that, it would have had the most points. 

Rojo Light Therapy Refine 900 on the other hand is has not been around as long. I haven't tested it as much. It does have an app and the touch screen plus pulsing. It has some good stand options. You'll be happy to know, you will get a free floor stand included which is a valuable benefit. 

The independent dimming function earned them that extra point which puts them neck and neck with PlatinumLED BioMax 900

Block Blue Light PowerPanel Mega 4.0 slipped behind here. The main reason is that there is no app. Although, it does have a remote control and a nice touchscreen. Yet it doesn't have as many stand options as some of its competitors. 

Joovv Solo 3.0, did well here because the company has a longstanding reputation for their user friendly operation features with lots of bells and whistles. It's a little bit lacking now which is why it's not top scoring here, yet it does tick a lot of boxes in the operation set up and modular support. 

Let's have a look at the overall standings so far. PlatinumLED BioMax 900 is in first place.

Block Blue Light PowerPanel Mega 4.0 dropped a few points there to fall into second place. Rojo Light Therapy Refine 900 has jumped up two spots to share third place with Mito Red Light MitoPro 1500 X

This is getting close! It's very interesting some well-known names in the top here such as PlatinumLED BioMax 900 and Mito Red Light MitoPro 1500 X. Climbing the ladder in between them, we've got the two newcomers Block Blue Light Mega 4.0 and Rojo Light Therapy Refine 900

Hooga Ultra1500 dropped two places into 6th place. Another big change is Infraredi Pro Flex Max climbing up three to sit in 11th place equal. 

Idoo Lighting 1500 Therapy Lamp from Alibaba dropped three places to fall down to 14th place. Their panel costs less because it doesn't offer many of these operational features that are nice to have. 

So with two rounds left, it's still open to anyone. I imagine both PlatinumLED BioMax 900 and Block Blue Light PowerPanel Mega 4.0 are going to be in the top three because both of those panels have a decent buffer over third place, but there are still a lot of points up for grabs. 

Two panels are neck and neck for third place: Rojo Light Therapy Refine 900 and Mito Red Light MitoPro 1500 X. Meanwhile, Rouge Care Pro G3 is only trailing them by a couple of points. Exciting times! 

Also remember that at the end of the video, I'm not only going to reveal the overall winner, I'm also going to look at some other additional category awards. It's going to be quite interesting because I'll also throw in my pick for the most disappointing panel as well.

Round Six: Extras Overview

Let's look at the round six category called extras because it's where I put in everything else that didn't have a place in the categories I've already covered. These are a few little odds and ends that I wanted to include. There's only this round and the price round to go, and then it's all done. 

This round we're looking at whether the panel comes with a good quality manual. I do this because if you're buying a red light therapy device for the first time, you want to know a bit about not just operating the panel but how red light therapy works and how long you should use it for as well as what the buttons do, so a good manual is helpful. 

I also look at cable length. What I'm measuring here is how much cable you have from the bottom of the panel. Some panels have a really short cable with the plug is on the bottom of the panel, so those do pretty well. 

I put this in because there's nothing worse than putting your panel on the back of the door or on a hook, and then finding it doesn't reach the socket unless you add your own extension cord. 

I give the panel credit if it has built-in grips which makes moving it a lot easier. I consider whether the panel comes with included eyewear protection. I give it good marks if it's a low EMF rated panel. 

I also consider the sound from excessive noise output. To me, there's nothing worse than using a red light therapy panel to enhance my wellness to feel my best, but then getting stressed from the irritating noise! Thankfully, there are much quieter panels available than Joovv Solo 3.0 and Infraredi Pro Flex Max.

I also evaluate any other unique positive or negative features. I've spent a lot of time doing all this testing. I've totaled all the scores up.

Round Six: Extras Results

In last place we have the Idoo Lighting 1500 Therapy Lamp from Alibaba. It doesn't tick any of the boxes for extras.

Kala Red Light Elite is in 16th place. It has a good manual and low EMF. However, it lost a couple of points because it has a really short cable. Plus, the LEDs are in clusters, so you end up with a blank space in between the LEDs which is not good for light coverage. Lastly, the wire hooks also snapped unfortunately. 

In 14th equal we have: Infraredi Pro Flex Max and Bon Charge Hive Max Red Light Therapy DeviceRed Therapy Company RedRush 840

Pulse tied for 12th place. Scienlodic BioEpic P1500 did better than expected and also tied for 12th, but it lost two points because it's factory in China rather than a retail store. Plus, it's got the cluster issues which results in uneven coverage. In 11th place, we have CytoLED Triplex.

In eighth place equal we have: Hooga Ultra1500, Joovv Solo 3.0, and Mito Light Biohacker 4.0
A good thing about Joovv Solo 3.0 is that it's ultra lightweight. The panel is made of plastic. While setting all of these up, metal panel after metal panel when I picked up this plastic one which is so surprisingly light, I would have thrown it up to the ceiling if I wasn't aware of the dramatic difference. So that's a really big plus if you want something very lightweight! 
In sixth place equal we have GembaRed OverClocked and LightpathLED Diesel XL Shortie 2.0. Now both of these had a really long cable. These are two of the quietest panels I've ever tested!

However, neither one comes with a printed manual. They don't have built-in grips either. 

The GembaRed OverClocked is really long, so I gave it a bonus point for being so tall. LightpathLED Diesel XL Shortie 2.0 comes with a free floor stand, so it gets a bonus point for that perk.
Mito Red Light MitoPro 1500 X is exceptionally tall! In the first round, we rewarded width, but I do want to give bonus points for height to GembaRed OverClocked and Mito Red Light MitoPro 1500 X for their height. Some people may want a panel that's really tall, so I gave both panels a bonus point for that. 
In fourth place equal, we have Mito Red Light MitoPro 1500 X and the PlatinumLED BioMax 900. Both have a great manual, built-in grips, eye protection, low EMF, and minimal sound noise. PlatinumLED BioMax 900 is really wide.
In a tie for first runner up, we have Block Blue Light PowerPanel Mega 4.0 and Rouge Care Pro G3. Both have a long cable length, great manuals, eye protection, low EMF, and score nice and quiet on the sound testing. 
In first place, we have the newcomer Rojo Light Therapy Refine 900. There's a few things to talk about here, so let's run through it. It has a good cable length, built-in grips, eyewear protection, a good manual, low EMF, and it's nice and quiet. 

It earned two more bonus points. Firstly, Rojo Light Therapy Refine 900 comes bundled with a free stand included in the price which is really good! A stand like this would typically be sold separately for about $130 or so.

Secondly, Rojo Light Therapy Refine 900 is quite unique because it has built in smart dosing modes. You can select a session with preset settings optimized for bone health, muscle recovery, skin health, or whatever other objective you select. 

Then you activate that mode to make the intensities and the wavelengths all change accordingly. It comes up as an option for you while selecting the session duration. 

No other panel offers this feature. Rojo Light Therapy Refine 900 created an absolute game changer! It's amazing for people who are new to red light therapy. To be honest, it's an amazing advancement for everyone including me! 

There are downsides with this innovation though. I wonder, how accurate are the dosing protocols? I haven't put out dosing protocols because I can't get my head around it with so many variables. 

I think this advancement in Rojo Light Therapy Refine 900 is a big step in the right direction though because it gives all of us a quick and easy starting place that is likely better than our best guestimate.

For anyone willing to put in the time to evaluate the research around their specific goal who finds their research leads them to a different dosing protocol, more power to them with the Rojo Light Therapy Refine 900 because it also lets you adjust each individual wavelength to optimize your customized sessions.

Because of that and all the other good things that come included with Rojo Light Therapy Refine 900, I think it's only fair that that it has come out on top in this round. You'll have to check out my full review of this panel to learn more.

So that's another round done. Here's what's fascinating, if you look down at the change in ranking column, you'll notice that there aren't too many changes, especially in the top eight or nine panels. Rouge Care Pro G3 jumped up one spot. 

Fun fact: after six rounds, Rojo Light Therapy Refine 900 won three of those rounds. No other panel has won that many rounds. PlatinumLED BioMax 900 won two of them. Mito Red Light MitoPro 1500 X won two rounds. Block Blue Light PowerPanel Mega 4.0 finished first on one round. 

Rojo Light Therapy Refine 900 in third place is definitely putting on a good show for being first timers to the competition.

When we take a closer look at the points, we see that there's only half a point between first and second place. PlatinumLED BioMax 900 is still in first place, but Block Blue Light Mega 4.0 is right on their tails! 

In third place, we have Rojo Light Therapy Refine 900. Seven points behind still with an opportunity to come out on top. 

Rouge Care Pro G3 jumped up one placing into fourth place. Mito Red Light MitoPro 1500 X is close behind in fifth place, but it has fallen a little a little bit in that round which is disappointing. It still has a chance to pull ahead of the competition. Realistically, it will be doing good to secure a spot in the top three at this point. 

Further down the table, we see that the Joovv Solo 3.0 did come up three places in this round. Infraredi Pro Flex Max dropped two. I'm not going to go into all the details here, but you can check out my blog Light Therapy Insiders where there are detailed articles plus my Shopping Tool where you can compare all sorts of products beyond the 17 tested here. 

Round Seven: Price Overview

Here we are at the very last round of my 2024 red light therapy comparison series. This round we look at price and shipping. Now remember, at the start of the video I said that this series was going to be directed more for the American customer. Up until now, everything that we've covered is applicable to worldwide customers. 

But in this round, to make things a little bit easier, I looked at prices in US dollars. Also, I looked at how much it would cost to get a panel to your door in America. Some of the companies do ship internationally. Some of them don't. If you want to know the best panel for your particular region, visit my Light Therapy Insiders site for articles focusing on other geopolitical regions such as the European Union. 

The other thing I need to mention is that the prices I'm about to share are accurate as of the time of filming. Please note, prices may change. In fact, I'm sure prices will change. It's just the world we're in where prices rise and fall according to the ever changing supply and demand.

Secondly, the prices I'm going to share are the discounted prices. I am affiliated with a lot of these companies. I've asked them to give you guys the best deal possible. So some of the prices you see are exclusive to this channel. To take advantage of those discounted prices, use the discount code. Typically, it's ALEX or something similar. 

I have used the discounted prices when doing this comparison because that's the price you're going to pay. So that's what we should compare them on. I've added on the US shipping as well. 

One last thing I need to say, if you're not worried about price because you've got a heap of money, and you want to get one of the highest quality panels, you can base your decision on the standings we were just comparing and buy one of those panels that ticks all the boxes that are most important to you.

Round Seven: Price Results

Typically, to get a better product, you have a higher cost. Sitting in 17t place is the exception to that rule Joovv Solo 3.0 which is the complete opposite because their prices have gone up to nearly two grand despite the fact that the panel has not really changed.

Joovv Solo 3.0 is not keeping pace with the more competitive panels which are being updated more frequently. The other disappointing thing is that it also placed really low on the overall standings, yet it has a total cost of $1780 which is over $200 more than the 16th most expensive panel, and there's no discount code.

In 16th place is LightpathLED Diesel XL Shortie 2.0 costs $1,543. In 15th place is Scienlodic BioEpic P1500 for $1439. In 14th place we have GembaRed OverClocked which costs $1390, and I don't have a discount code for it. In 13th place is Mito Light Biohacker 4.0 for $1289.

In 12th place is Block Blue Light PowerPanel Mega 4.0 for $1275 plus a $9 shipping cost. In 11th place is Hooga Ultra1500 for $1259. In 10th place is PlatinumLED BioMax 900 for $1234. When ordering through the discount link below, there is no code or shipping fee. 

In ninth place is Mito Red Light MitoPro 1500 X with free shipping for $1187. In eighth place, we have Rojo Light Therapy Refine 900 for $1165. Seventh place goes to Rouge Care Pro G3 for $1112. Sixth place goes to Kala Red Light Elite for $1085. Fifth place, goes to Infraredi Pro Flex Max for $1079.

Third runner up goes to CytoLED Triplex for $1008.
Second runner up goes to Red Therapy Company RedRush 840 Pulse for $970. 
First runner up goes to Bon Charge Hive Max Red Light Therapy Device for $902. 
In first place for this round, is Idoo Lighting 1500 Therapy Lamp from Alibaba. The discounted price I got here was only $300, but I had to pay about $185 for shipping. That brings the total cost to $485 which is incredibly low!

Final Scoreboard Overview

Before we do the final standings, let's look at this balance scale of cost on one side in this seventh round weighed against the first six rounds of what you are getting for your money. 

The price round is an interesting one because your pockets may be deeper than someone else's. Yet price a factor in this comparison series because all things being equal, price would be the only deciding factor. All things are not equal though as we saw in the first six rounds. That's why I left this seventh round on price for the end.

That way, you can look at how the panel score is completely overshadowed by price in the false assumption that all these panels and your buying experience would be about the same. However, that is not the case.

Like most consumer goods, light therapy panels are commonly made in a factory in China or more rarely another company in Asia. The factories ship the panels to warehouses in other countries around the world which may be closer to the consumer. Online retail stores sell their brand of panel shipping it from the warehouse nearest you.

As a general rule, I noticed that a lot of the panels that performed really well in that price round were sitting quite low on the standings because you get what you pay for.

You may want to spend an extra $100 or $200 to get something that has built-in presets, has a lot more power, offers greater convenience, is customizable, quiet, has a longer warranty period, includes a remote control, and anything else that is important to you. 

Remember that prices may have changed by the time this video goes out. I will also be doing a comparison looking at the best panel under $1000, so you may want to keep an eye out for that.

Now it's time to update the standings. We're going to go through the final results working our way up to see who comes out number one. All right hold onto your hats, this is going to be good!

Final Scoreboard Results

In 17th place we have Bon Charge Hive Max Red Light Therapy Device with 36.5 points. That's a disappointing finish. Nothing's really changed with that panel over the years, so it doesn't surprise me. 

In 16th place we have the Joovv Solo 3.0 with 40.5 point. It dropped four positions after that price round. I don't get it. It is super expensive. Sure, you are getting some nice things, but it is so far behind the newest developments. Hopefully, a fourth generation Joovv Solo will soon spice things up a bit. 

The 15th place is CytoLED Triplex with 45.5 points. In 14th place is Kala Red Light Elite with 48.5 which is a disappointing finish as there was a lot of marketing hype for this new panel. In 13th place GembaRed OverClocked with 50.5 points. In 12th place is Scienlodic BioEpic P1500 with 51 points. 

In 11th place is Infraredi Pro Flex Max with 51.5 points. This is another disappointing finish. Remember, this panel placed third out of 12 just 2 years ago, so it lost a lot of ground. 

In 10th place is the Idoo Lighting 1500 Therapy Lamp from Alibaba with 52 points. That's up five positions purely on the super low price. If you take out price, remember that was sitting in 15th place just before the last round. So yes, you're getting a fantastic price, but you're losing a lot of the additional benefits of other panels. 

In ninth place is Red Therapy Company RedRush 840 Pulse with 56.5 points. In eighth place we have Mito Light Biohacker 4.0 which is the first time this company's been in the series the finishing mid pack with 57 points.

Seventh place goes to LightpathLED Diesel XL Shortie 2.0 with 66 points. Sixth place goes to Hooga Ultra1500 with 72.5 points. 

That leaves us with the top five red light therapy wall panels for 2024 as measured by yours truly. All right, are you ready for this? 

The Top Five

Fifth place goes to the Mito Red Light MitoPro 1500 X. It's somewhat disappointing finish given that this panel's previous generation won last year. This great company has great products. There's just a few minor things that cost them dearly. Their narrower panel design is the big one. That put this panel on the back foot from the very first round.

Mito Red Light MitoPro 1500 X has some really good features like its new touchscreen control panel. The application is neat. It gives you great customer support. It has a nice blend of light. It is fifth out of 17 which is still in the top, but we're looking for the best of the best. This year, it didn't quite have it. 

The Final Four

The third runner up in 4th place is Rouge Care Pro G3. This may surprise a lot of people is because it's not a well-known company. However, the panel when it was released in 2023 was one of the most powerful panels! The company has built a great reputation for sharing a lot of data and offering great customer support.

What held Rouge Care Pro G3 back from winning the top spot is that it is only putting out 660nm and 850nm light. For a panel to only have those two wavelengths to finish in fourth place, it does show that they're doing a lot of other things right. If it just had a few more wavelengths in there it would easily be in the top three! 

There are only three more panels to go. I wonder what you guys picked. I'm about to reveal my top 3 panels.

Top-3 Contenders

Our 2nd runner up, in third place is awarded to Rojo Light Therapy Refine 900! This is an incredible result because it's a very new company founded around 2022. What excites me the most is that they have created a panel that is both innovative and powerful. It's got a good warranty and packaging. 

I marked Rojo Light Therapy Refine 900 down because of being new to the market. However, it is supported by Sun Stream Saunas in Australia which is a highly reputable company. I know there's funding behind it and all those good things that come with retail experience serving customers. 

They've done something that no other company has done before by designing Rojo Light Therapy Refine 900 with smart modes! Not only that. They've invented a panel that allows you to independently change the intensities of your wavelengths! 

Now these are both things that I've been talking about for 2 or 3 years now maybe even longer! No one has done it until Rojo Light Therapy Refine 900 came along. They have successfully done it which is extraordinary! It's very impressive. Good on them. 

Not only that, Rojo Light Therapy Refine 900 is also available at a really good price point! It scored eighth place in that last round. With a discounted of price of only $1,165. That's really good for everything you're getting.

Plus, you're getting that free stand as well! That's a huge value of another hundred odd dollars that a lot of companies charge. 

So congratulations Rojo Light Therapy Refine 900! Third place out of 17! What a remarkable accomplishment! 

Even as a newcomer to the scene where this is only their second generation panel, yet it achieved third place by besting 14 other panels including some very well-known brands that have been in the running for a long time.  I think anyone choosing Rojo Light Therapy Refine 900 will be very happy! 

Top Two Winners

Here's the moment we've all been waiting for. We have arrived at our top two panels: PlatinumLED BioMax 900 8th generation and the Block Blue Light PowerPanel Mega 4th generation. Who is going to come out number one? 

PlatinumLED BioMax 900 8th gen <-- and --> Block Blue Light PowerPanel Mega 4th gen

I'm not going to announce second place just yet. What I'm going to do is announce the winner, and then we'll talk about the runner up later.

The 2024 Champion

PlatinumLED BioMax 900 wins the 2024 Red Light Therapy Wall Panel Of The Year Award!
The winner of the 2024 Red Light Therapy Wall Panel Of The Year Award goes to… drum roll please… PlatinumLED BioMax 900 8th generation! 

This is a panel that won my very first comparison series. It fell behind ever so slightly in my last one, but PlatinumLED really stepped it up with not just one but TWO generation updates since that competition because they have built a longstanding reputation for being a highly innovative company always striving to outdo themselves. 

PlatinumLED BioMax 900 has a lot of new features, a ton of power, and a great price especially when you look at the price per watt. 

They introduced blue light in the seventh gen panel. Now, with the eighth gen, they added the 1060nm near infrared light. Plus, they have one of the best connectivity systems.

With PlatinumLED BioMax 900, you're getting a handy remote included and a really nice app that's easy to use. It doesn't require sign up to log in or anything like that. You're getting a great warranty, a high quality manual, and many great stand options. It is a really good panel all the way around. 

Congratulations PlatinumLED BioMax 900! What an accomplishment to come out on top even with so many strong competitors to win the 2024 Red Light Therapy Wall Panel Of The Year Award!

Second Place Winner

Let's celebrate our first runner up now which goes to Block Blue Light PowerPanel Mega 4.0!

Block Blue Light got their fourth gen panel out just in time for this comparison series. I'm glad they did because it offers a better blend of light, packs more power, has a nice touchscreen control system, plus a few other new bells and whistles. 
Block Blue Light PowerPanel Mega 4.0

This is the very first time Block Blue Light PowerPanel Mega 4.0 has been included in my comparison series, just like Rojo Light Therapy Refine 900. So we have two newcomer companies who have placed in the top three! 

Block Blue Light PowerPanel Mega 4.0 is their premium panel. It's a great size. All three of the top panels are the same size with 300 LEDs. 

Block Blue Light PowerPanel Mega 4.0 has really good pricing and shipping options as well. It's another panel that I would be very happy to use even if it was the only panel I could use which is really saying something. 

It's important to remember that all of the panels in this series are going to work for you because they're all putting out therapeutic red light.

Even Bon Charge Hive Max Red Light Therapy Device and Joovv Solo 3.0 are going to work because light therapy has been shown effective. It's just that there are panels that are even nicer that offer you so much more.

Red light therapy simply works, and if you are going to take advantage of it by buying a panel, you want to know you're getting the best value for your investment. That's what this comparison series is all about.

Before you go out and buy any of these, remember I've reviewed all of these panels individually. So you can go check out my individual panel reviews if you want to take a deeper dive.

I always recommend doing that because it's an important decision. Those reviews cover even more information than I could possibly include in this 2024 comparison series article. Before you go, I want to do a few extra awards.

Additional Awards

The Newcomer Of The Year Award goes to both Bock Blue Light PowerPanel Mega 4.0 and Rojo Light Therapy Refine 900. They're both great panels coming in at second and third place. Congratulations again to both companies! 
The Most Innovative Feature Award goes to Rojo Light Therapy Refine 900 for both their new smart modes and the ability to independently change the power settings on each wavelength! I think that's awesome, so congrats! 

Who gets The Best Panel For Those On A Budget Award? The suspense builds...

Well, you know what? That's going to take me too long to report on here. So I'm going to do a separate article for that award. Be sure to check that out. 

Also for those of you in Australia who are wondering what's the best panel for your area specifically, I've got helpful comparisons coming out for you very soon. 

Greatest Opportunities For Improvement Awards

Lastly, I want to talk about the most disappointing panels. There's two here.

Joovv Solo 3.0 because it has gone from being a market leader with their panels doing really well in my reviews and comparison series in past years to falling behind. Not only lagging on the features, but it's also really expensive which is disappointing. I hope there will be some adjustments and that a future version will do well in my next comparison series.
Joovv Solo 3.0 is lagging on features, and it's really expensive which is disappointing.
The other disappointing panel would be Infraredi Pro Flex Max. It placed third a couple of years ago. In this series, it was below average unfortunately. The newer generation panel just didn't do as well as the previous one. But I'm sure the company will do another upgrade to make it better than ever.
Infraredi Pro Flex Max placed third a couple of years ago, but the newest generation panel placed below average which is disappointing.

Not everyone's going to agree with me on every point. That's quite alright because you can take all this data I've gathered for you and come up with your own conclusions about what matters most to you. 

My Reflections On The 2024 1st Place Winner

My discount codes and links are all down below. Before I wrap up and say goodbye and thank you, I do want to share my closing thoughts on this comparison series.

PlatinumLED BioMax 900 is exceptional without a doubt. However, it's not perfect. Otherwise, it would be a panel scoring top marks in every single round. 

Going into it, I didn't know who was going to win. I knew PlatinumLED BioMax 900 would do well with its intense power and great price and a lot of good things. But, there's 17 panels this year making it more competitive since there's been a lot of change and innovation in the market lately.

For instance, it doesn't have the dual chip LEDs when many others do. It doesn't have a balanced blend of light since it is mostly the two traditional wavelengths. Some people may want to see more power going into those other wavelengths, so I knew that I wanted to reward panels that had good light coverage a good blend of light. 

What's interesting is that this came up in my conversation with PlatinumLED a while ago. I asked why they haven't utilized dual chip technology. They said it doesn't matter if users stand 6 to 12 inches from the panel in order to get good light coverage. The further away, the more even the distribution of wavelengths. 

That makes sense considering how powerful this panel is. No other panel is as powerful. Since this is a comparison series of 17 panels, including the 16 less powerful ones, I decided multi chip technology is a significant improvement for almost all panels.

PlatinumLED BioMax 900 did win three rounds. It consistently scored really well. If you take out the price round, it was way up there in every other round. Of those, the wavelength round was their weakest. It's fantastic, so I'm not surprised that it is the best of the best for 2024. 

My Thoughts On The Closest Competitors

The epic plot twists for me were Rojo Light Therapy Refine 900, and Block Blue Light PowerPanel Mega 4.0, and even Rouge Care Pro G3. These are great panels, so I figured these three would do really well but I had no idea how they would match up against such tough competition. 

This is why I was so excited by this comparison series and also stressed because so much work goes into it since these companies continue to surprise me each year with new upgrades to take into consideration.

Just look at Hooga Ultra1500 showing up to the series with their impressive quad chip LEDs when no one else has ever done anything like that before! 

I'm always wondering, where's this going to go? So many panels have touch screens and more wavelengths. I'm happy with all the progress I have seen over the years. 

Mito Light Biohacker 4.0 is made by a European company. Their panel is really good, so I was really excited to see how it would hold up against the competition. Looking at the results now, I think it's a pretty good outcome. I think their panels are really good. 

Mito Light also has a larger panel Mitohacker 4.0 which was too big for this comparison series is also exceptional with 400 LEDs! Of course, that didn't fit the criteria for this apples to apples comparison of panels with 300 or fewer LEDs. Check out that review because it's such a great panel that I couldn't cover here.

Hats off to Block Blue Light PowerPanel Mega 4.0! It is a really well rounded panel. It consistently ticks a lot of boxes across the board. You can't go wrong going with this one. 

To me, it's awesome what Rojo Light Therapy have done with their Refine 900 panel. I'm very impressed. It is still a new company. I know some people will have reservations around that. However, I'm excited to see that panel and company develop into a top contender so quickly. I'm keen to geek out on some of those smart mode features! 

Mito Red Light MitoPro 1500 X in fifth place is interesting because the big trip up to me was the size. It lost so many points on the first round because it is a little bit narrower. It also lost a few points in the operation round. Also, it missed out on the 810nm wavelength. 

Saying that, Mito Red Light MitoPro 1500 X is still a really high quality panel from a good company. Plus, I like their new amber light. What a great idea to add that unique wavelength! 

Another special mention is LightpathLED Diesel XL Shortie 2.0. If you want 810nm light, you have a great panel here where every single chip in there has 810nm light! Plus, it's the widest panel! 

If LightpathLED Diesel XL Shortie 2.0 was the only panel I could have, I'd be happy with it. Sure, it's not perfect. None of these other panels are either. It's not exceptionally great across the board, but it's still a good all around panel. In fact, I have been using it for a while. It's super quiet which is something that I really appreciate! 

If you go back and watch my first ever comparison series video and compare it to this one, you'll laugh. You'll say, "Wow, what a difference!" I welcome your input because your feedback helps me improve every year.

I'm always trying my best, yet it's so hard to come up with an overall winner that everyone will agree on because if there is a feature that is most important to you, you are going to go for the one that is best at being: wide, tall, light, quiet, affordable, attractive, helpful, local, innovative, connectable, well-known... or something else.

Clearly, the panel that offers what you want most will outshine all the others in your mind, right? And that's totally fine! I'm just here to offer you an interesting, big-picture perspective of the pros and cons of the 17 panels that I'm the most curious about. 

Hopefully, sharing my helicopter perspective of all these options helps you choose the best option for you. That's why I do these fun comparisons and in-depth reviews of each one. It's also why I'm going to be looking at other types of panels later on that didn't fit within the parameters of this apples to apples comparison. 

Looking at the overall scorecard, I am pretty happy with it overall. You wouldn't believe how long I have spent planning this event. I've invested so many months having conversations with technicians, electricians, light experts, company founders, and many others. 

I'm looking at the science and using that to shape my scoring system by including a point for 810nm because I believe it's a highly beneficial wavelength supported by a mountain of scientific research studies.
