The 18" Bladelight Bi-Color LED Light with V-Mount Battery Plate from FloLight is a unique linear array of high power LEDs that uses a movable lens to offer the user a choice of 20, 60, or 120-degree beam angles. The fixture has two built-in channels that run the length of the fixture. Sliding the lens into the top channel will give you a 20-degree spot light, while placing it in the middle channel creates a 60-degree beam spread. By removing the lens completely you'll get a wide, 120-degree flood light. FloLight also includes a cut-to-size Lee 810 Zircon diffusion filter for extra soft light. Built-in barndoors offer another path to light shaping from wide coverage to the narrowest slit to suit your subject's requirements. The included Double Ball Mount supports 25 lb and allows easy horizontal positioning for wrap-around light, as well as vertical positioning for use as a key, fill, or accent light. Multiple units can be attached end to end or side-by-side to create a larger fixture.

Multiple units can be attached end to end or side-by-side to create a larger fixture.

The BladeLight Bi-Color has a variable color temperature from 3200 to 5600K to blend in seamlessly with ambient light conditions, match other fixtures, or just for creative options Its high CRI rating of 96 to 98 is a testament to the light's precision in the rendering of colors. Light intensity is variable too from 10 to 100%. While you can make these adjustments locally on the fixture, you can also do it wirelessly with an iOS/Android Bluetooth app.

The BladeLight runs on 100 to 240 VAC current for worldwide use via its power supply but it will also run on batteries thanks to its V-Mount battery plate.

BladeLight Cuts in a Single Direction, like a Fresnel

The BladeLight includes barndoors, that are there for more than holding gels and diffusion. The barndoors allow the BladeLight to cleanly cut the light in one direction without multiple shadows thanks to its Linear LED Strip design.

Focusable Light

The BladeLight features three beam angles that are accessed by sliding the included lens into one of the two available channels or by removing the lens completely. The top channel will give you a 20-degree spot light, the lens in the middle channel will give you a 60-degree beam spread, and by removing the lens completely, you'll get a wide, 120-degree flood light.

Portable Power

The BladeLight is upgradeable for portable power without the need of tools or complicated alterations to the light. FloLight offers a battery mount as an easy add-on item to power your BladeLight on the go. Depending on the model that you choose, the fixture can be powered by either V-Mount or Gold Mount batteries.

Gels and Diffusion

FloLight has tested and found some of the highest quality and longest lasting gels and diffusion material for the BladeLight. The light comes with a cut-to-size Lee 810 Zircon Diffusion filter.

Double Ball Mount

The BladeLight features a Double Ball Mount that has a 25 lb weight capacity, and allows the fixture to be easily positioned without having to adjust your light stand.

Softbox-Like Wrap-Around Light Quality

Because of the BladeLight's long form factor, you can simply rotate it horizontally to your subject for wrap-around light, or vertically oriented for a key or fill light. The included Zircon Diffusion gel turn the BladeLight into a soft strip LED with a 120-degree beam spread of soft, smooth light with precise single source shadows.

18" and Powerful

Providing a 500W hotlight equivalent, the 18" BladeLight provides more than adequate performance while drawing a fraction (50W) of the power consumed by other fixtures.
