HELP! My Chromo Inc. 216 doesn't turn on, I just place 6 AA batteries and nothing happen, it needs something else or something like that? Jun 13, 2014
When holding the unit with the battery compartment visible, the separators of the batteries on the lower level have slightly elongated tabs which prevent one or more positive terminals of a battery will not touch the casing lug. My solution was to use a pair of sidecutters and trim the pastic separator tab so that the battery terminals touch the casing lug positively. Simple - it works!
I have used it with my Sony batteries and its stayed on 3hrs without charge. I have us3d it a few months without any of the led's burning out.
I can't decide between the 216 LED or the 160 LED. As it can be dimmed, you'd think you'd just get the brighter one and dim it when needed. Thoughts? Jun 13, 2014
What do you want them for? I got a 160, which is pretty bright, but I started to make some videos for a nonprofit organization (with a media comittee) and it wasn't enough. Some other dude decided to build our own lights. He made two: in each one you can plug 4 light bulbs..... and the umbrellas... (to help you deal with shadows)
does it work with rechargeable AA batteries? And will it work for the Nikon D3200 hot-seat? Thanks. Feb 7, 2015
First, it has a cold shoe, meaning no electrical contact with cameras. I replaced the ball head (it is very small, and allows the light to flop around too much) with a cold shoe adapter, Asfor rechargeable batteries, any AA batter should work - but remember, instead of a cover, it has an open frame, that still has to be removed to add or remove the batteries. Apparently, many people have returned this product thinking the batteries won't fit.
Which battery adapter comes with this unit? Do you carry SONY battery adapter if the unit comes with non-SONY adapter? How much? I have several generic SONY NP FP90, 100; will these rechargeable batteries work with a Sony adapter? Thanks a bunch. Sep 2, 2013

Hello, i bought this product for a sony aplha 330 cam, but i need one adapter to use this? 12 days ago
You shouldn't, this isn't a flash, you manually control the brightness when setting up a shot. Hopefully that answers, as long as you have a flash shoe it should fit.
CI216 sounds great.I read it uses batteries fast. I have 2 Neweer 160's. Would these mounted side by side give more light or throw as far? 19 days ago
I am using rechargeable batteries and I haven't had any problems. The light has worked great. Two lights would be stronger then one. However this light is bright for the money!!
Was looking to purchase for my Canon Rebel T3. Is it compatible? I only take photographs of items I sell. Would it be too much light for that purpose? Mar 18, 2015
The light unit is dimmable and not a flash, therefore, It would not be too much light. If your camera has a shoe, you can mount it on the camera otherwise you will need to support it another way. Keep in mind that camera mounted lights or flash units are not always the best solution for product photography(due to reflections). Positioning your light higher than the lens or off at an angle usually works best for most products. Having a constant on light allows you to experiment before shooting.
