frequently asked questions
Q: Which one should I buy?
For a detailed comparison of our THREE product lines see the chart HERE.
Here's some quick guidance:
Mito Red Original - if you think you'll only ever want one light, the Mito Red Original series provides unmatched power and value.
MitoMOD Series - same great power and performance as the Mito Red Original, but if you want (or may want in the future) modular capability to build out a larger setup, go with the MitoMOD Series.
MitoPRO Series - same great power but with additional Red (630/660nm) and NIR (830/850nm) wavelengths in order to truly maximize cytochrome c oxidase activation. Also comes with built in integrated control panel and timer (control an entire array with the push of a button). The MitoPRO Series is one-of-a-kind, top of the line red light therapy for the true red light therapy connoisseur.
Q: Why should I buy from Mito Red Light?
BEST VALUE: Quite simply, we offer the absolute best value and most effective red light therapy devices on the market today. We challenge anyone to show us where they can find more irradiance for the dollar. Irradiance is the name of the game when it comes to red light LED devices.
Higher Irradiance = Better Results in Less Time.
But beware deceptive marketing! Other manufacturers will proclaim irradiance of >100mW/cm2, but will leave for the fine print that this is at the SURFACE of their device, not at the recommended treatment distance.
3RD PARTY TESTED: Our independently tested lights have been meticulously designed and engineered to offer irradiance in the scientifically accepted 'therapeutic window' at the distances at which you will actually be using the device! Be wary of other companies that do not publish any independent diagnostic data.
UNMATCHED SELECTION: As the leader in red light therapy, Mito Red is committed to offering the widest selection available anywhere. Our THREE DISTINCT PRODUCT LINES, offer you many options to choose the size and configuration that best suits your needs and your budget.
SUPERIOR DESIGN: Our Mito Red Original and MitoMOD series with Enhanced Spectral Energy Output™ (ESPEO) delivers energy across the full spectrums of Red (620nm - 700nm with peak at 660nm) and NIR (800nm - 900nm with peak at 850nm). This configuration has generated amazing feedback from thousands of delighted customers.
The one-of-a-kind, MitoPRO series takes things to the next level by using the four most bio-active wavelengths 630nm / 660nm (Red) and 830nm / 850nm (Near Infrared) at 25% each wavelength. This unique configuration drives enhanced efficacy and even more light energy across the spectrums of Red and NIR. The MitoPRO specifically contains an equal number of each of these LEDs to ensure even coverage and no 'polka-dot' effect. Beware other companies that claim to use these additional wavelengths but only use them in 5-10% of the panel to save cost!
Last but not least, all Mito Red Light devices have been purposefully and meticulously designed to be low EMF and low flicker!
60 DAY NO RISK TRIAL PERIOD: Mito Red has a full 60 day NO RISK trial - we are the ONLY major red light therapy company that does not charge a restocking fee. If you are not happy with your light, send it back for a FULL REFUND. The spirit of a trial period is for customers to get a full refund if they are not satisfied. If other companies are charging you a 15-25% "restocking fee", we'd hardly classify that as a NO RISK trial.
EXCEPTIONAL CUSTOMER SERVICE: We pride ourselves in providing the absolute best customer experience. If you have any questions or concerns before or after making a purchase, you can call our PHONE customer support line and speak to an actual live person to get help.
REAL RESULTS: Don't just take our word for it. Please take a moment to read through our growing repository of customer testimonials.
Q: Why are your products so inexpensive?
Q: What is your return policy?
Q: When will my order ship?
Q: Are the NIR LEDs not working?
Q: Do I need safety glasses with this light?
While there is a growing body of scientific research suggesting that modest amounts of red and NIR LED light may benefit certain eye conditions, Mito Red's plug-in lights are very bright!
As such, goggles are provided and should be worn when facing the lights, particularly when NIR is active.
As an industry leader in red light therapy, Mito Red now includes both opaque protective goggles and high quality, comfortable IR5 lens glasses with every order. At Mito Red consumer safety is our number one priority. Additional high quality IR5 lens protective glasses can be purchased at a very low price (with free US shipping) here:
When using, DO NOT stare directly into the light emitting diodes (LEDs).
Again, our Mito Red Lights are very bright and if you have any eye problems, or any other health conditions at all, please consult with a licensed healthcare professional before using a device like Mito Red.
Q: Can I use the devices too much / for too long?
There is an upside down U shaped response curve when it comes to red light benefits More is not always better! The great thing about Mito Red Light devices is that you can reap the same benefits in less time versus other products on the market.
Q: What are the EMF levels?
Our devices are engineered to have low EMFs. However, anything with electric current running through it is going to generate some electromagnetic field. At the recommended usage distance of 6+ inches our devices emit no detectable levels of EMF.
On balance our devices are going to be much lower in EMFs than other products because our lights contain only the electrical components needed to power and cool the lights (nothing extraneous added such as bluetooth / WiFi). Of particular concern are products which come with an 'app'. Having an app necessitates a WiFi / bluetooth signal from the device. Many times these devices can emit a signal even when they are not in use! This means you could be unknowingly polluting your environment with EMFs 24/7.
