Aputure LS C300d II Daylight LED Monolight (V-Mount)
Key Features
  • For Film, Broadcast and Video Production
  • Output: 45,000 Lux at 3.3' w/ Reflector
  • 5600K CCT
  • AC or Battery Power
Built on the foundation of the popular LS C300d, Aputure's LS C300d II Daylight LED Monolight is an enhanced version with 20% more power, refined features, and advanced connectivity. Aputure uses Chip on Board (COB) technology to produce a 5600K color temperature, with power consumption of just 350W, while outputting up to 45,000 lux of light with an efficient reflector at a distance of 3.3'. In addition to power efficiency, this fixture also has a CRI/TLCI rating of 96, indicating accuracy in color rendering. The fixture's ballast/controller employs 0 to 100% Linear, Logarithmic, Exponential, and S-Curve dimming and is separated from the body of the fixture, making it lighter and reducing its size. A quick release plate connects to an included clamp, allowing attachment to a light stand to distribute the weight.

Regarding battery operation, I understand ...

Regarding battery operation, I understand according to Aputure's documentation that 15A batteries are required to power the 300d II, based on the logic of 350W max power draw requires (12V * 15A) * 2 = 360W. My question is, if I own many 12A batteries, is there a safe way to use them with this light, by capping the output following this equation: 12V * 12A = 144W max draw 144W is more or less 40% of 350W So one battery should provide safely and reliably 40% of total output capacity. 2 batteries should provide 80% of total output capacity. Meaning if I underpower the light using these values, I should be ok. Is that logic sound?
Asked by: David
I am surprised that Aputure gave that answer... As power electronics engineer with 40 years of experience, I do not recommend running your LiIon batteries beyond their rating for any length of time. Depending on the quality and age of the cells, and depending on the protection circuits built-in to the battery, you cannot assume it is safe to operate them beyond their rating - this is how battery-pack fires start. Having said that - yes your logic is sound. Running at 80% max will keep the packs within a safe operating region (12 A). I am also surprised that Aputure did not know that - when you have a single battery installed and set the power level to 80% - that really is 40% (the output of the power supply is cut in half with only 1 V-mount installed). So you only need to worry about keep the setting to 80% or below regardless of whether 1 or 2 batteries are attached. As a final note - the red-colored V-mount is the master. If you have only a single battery it must be on the red mount. The second battery goes on the black mount. Once the #1 battery on the red mount runs out, the light shuts-off, regardless of how much charge is remaining in battery #2. So plan accordingly to get the longest operating life.
