Mito Red Light Alert: The Most Expensive is not the Best

5.0 rating

No one could blame you for getting confused sorting through the Mito Red Light therapy devices. Which Mito Red Light is the best one for you? Is it the most powerful? The cheapest?

The Best Mito Red Light is the MitoRED MitoMEGA full body panel. At $999 before discounts, it’s cheaper than many other full body panels, but has a higher fluence, LED count and treatment surface area. The MitoMEGA has the highest fluence of any light Mito Red Light sells.

In this article, you will also find the cheapest, the most powerful and the best warranties amongst the Mito portables, tabletops, half body panels and full body panels.

The larger the panel, the greater the area of your body it can treat at a time.

  • The tabletops treat an area the size of your head or quadriceps.
  • The half body panels treat half of one side of your body: the upper or lower half.
  • The full body panels treat one side of the body from head to toe.
