anyone found a good protective case to store these in (for traveling)? I have 2 of the lights; but haven't had to travel via airplane with them yet. May 4, 2014
Best I can offer is this lil' trick: I have 3 units. I went to Dick's Sports and bought a $9 hand gun case. It's got padding in it, it's plastic, and it's the right size for a few of these. It fits three units plus batteries and 5/8" to coldshoe adapters for each (so I can place on stands). I'm sure there's cases like this on here on Amazon. I consider these a poor man's pelican but be clear that while protective they are no pelican case. I hope this helps.
It does not include the battery, but it does come with a battery holder. However out of the box it runs with 6 standard AA batteries and that is what I have been using in both the ones I own.
For the price, this light is basically disposable.
What is the actual size of the flash? I have a small Panasonic video camera I want to use with. The product dimension says 16.2 x 6.7 x 3.2 inches; seems quite big for this small camera. Jul 23, 2014
It's not petite, but it's not as large as they described. The light box is 3.5 in H, 5.5 in W and 2 in D. It is attached to a plastic cold shoe with an adjustable angle, so maybe they're measuring the entire device. It holds 6 or 8 AA cells (as I recall) so it's not light, but it's a very bright adjustable light. If you're shooting a wedding, for example, you could easily directly light a small group or use it as a bounce light. The fact that it's constant and adjustable, you can just look at the subject and adjust the brightness of the light as you desire.
i bought it and it came along with a little black thing, what is that used for? and please what long lasting batteries do you recommend? May 15, 2013
