A battery is not included with this light. It uses Sony L style batteries. The Watson NP-F770 Battery Kit with Compact AC/DC Charger is a great option to go along with this light for power,B&H # WANPF770CK. https://bhpho.to/2kuUtjl

Has anyone encountered issues with these intermittently not powering on? I was a at a wedding last night and they'd turned on sometimes and wouldn't respond minutes later... obviously, not ideal given the job. The brand of battery was Magolin from Amazon.
Asked by: James
Chances are the issue is either the battery or the connection between the battery and the light. First make sure the batteries are firmly connected to the light. If the connection with the light is secure then we recommend using batteries made by more established brands such as IDX System Technology SL-F50 Lithium-Ion Battery B&H # IDSLF50 MFR # SL-F50 or SWIT S-8972 7.2V, 47Wh Battery with DC Output (Sony L-Series) B&H # SWS8972 MFR # S-8972.

This light can be powered via Sony NP-F series batteries or an optional AC adapter. Neither of these are included in the box, but there are plenty of options on the B&H website. For example: AC Power Supply: https://bhpho.to/3jmevww Watson NP-F770 Battery Kit: https://bhpho.to/3rdi4HU

Does the IR remote have a light on/off capability?
Asked by: Thomas
Yes! While not possible to discern in the photo of all of the items included with the Yongnuo YN300III LED On-Camera Light (5600K) (B&H# YOYN300III56), the top-left button on the remote control is used to turn the light off and the top-right button is used to turn the light on.

question

Which light is iluminates stronger? the one with variable light or the one with 5500k? and does the orange filter makes it a full warm color temperature?
Asked by: Rafa G.
The 5500K version is brighter at 5500K than the variable color version. At 5500K the variable version uses only half the LEDs. If you want maximum brightness at 5500K, then buy the fixed 5500K version.
