Quasar Science Q10 Overview

By B&H Photo's
The Q10 Q-Lion Switch Lithium-Ion Linear LED Lamp from Quasar Science is a portable, 12", battery-operated, bi-color tube light useful for creating fill and accents in both still imaging and video-based applications. Compact and lightweight, the Q10 may be mounted via the 3/8"-16 socket or simply stuck in place on metal surfaces with its magnetic base. This Version 3 LED light features single-button operation and the button is recessed to prevent accidental setting changes.
Stepped Settings for Quick Operation
Swap through preset output levels of 100%, 75%, 50%, 25%, 10%, and off for quick and easily repeatable setups. Hold the same button to adjust color temperature between 3000K, 4300K, and 5600K modes to create different atmospheres or match different on-location lighting. Output is flicker-free at any output level.
Integrated Portability Features
The integrated 3550mAh lithium-ion battery operates the Q10 linear LED for up to 4 hours at 100% output. The integrated battery level indicator allows the remaining charge to be monitored. The battery is charged with the included charger via a micro-USB port, and the lamp may be used while charging. Please note, the light will not charge on a standard 5V USB charger. The light features a kill switch to disable battery operation for travel.

Does this item come with a charger? There isn't one "in the box" yet a regular USB port won't work (per the manual.)
Asked by: Jeffrey
A branded, charge-specific charger WAS included with my 12" light. They may have changed their minds and started including them, since higher-power USB chargers are required for these units.

What are the dimensions of this light? I'm trying to find a case to put a few of them in.
Asked by: Tim
Unfortunately, the manufacturer does not list the dimensions of the Quasar Science Q10 Q-Lion Switch Lithium-Ion Linear LED Lamp (12"). However, I would estimate it is approximately 12 inches (30.48 cm) in length, and approximately 1 inch (2.54 cm) wide, and approximately 1.5 inches (3.81 cm) tall
