Good Battery Life with the Right Batteries

I purchased this to use as a dim key light for shooting video of a presenter during a slide presentation in an otherwise dimly lighted room. It will be perfect and I will use it on a light stand. I tested the battery life with six fully charged Duracell 2500 mAh NiMh batteries. I used only the 3200K LEDs at full power and it ran for nearly 2-1/2 hours before dimming with the voltage runoff. So far happy with the brightness and battery life.

These are great! Perfect for weddings

I had the version before this with just white light. They were so annoying with the clip on orange filters. This so much better now having the bi-leds with a scroll wheel to control both white and warm legs.

Great light.

A great little light. Excellent if you are using a traditional style video camera. Gives a nice throw, I also use it as a fill light to do available light photography. Small, light and portable. Does not eat up that much power either.

Light is excellent

I'm quite satisfied with this toplight. It provides great light with good power flexibility (SONY L-type or 6x AAs). Barn doors are a plus!BC

A must have!

Last night I used these lights for the first time. I did video for a Quinceaera. The event was approximately 7 hours long. The lights stayed on the entire time. I was blown away. They exceeded my expectations.

question

How long will it last with 6AA batteries at Max bright?
Asked by: Seungmin
You would probably get around 20-30 minutes of run time out of AA batteries when shooting at max brightness. For much longer run times we suggest adding an NP-F style battery, such as B&H # WANPF770.https://bhpho.to/2n2NUHc

what are the barndoors for?

what are the barndoors for?
Asked by: Larry
Barndoors prevent light from spilling off and can be even used to further direct how you want the light to be projected. You can close off the barn doors to a certain degree to limit the light's beam.
