The Amaran AL-H198c illuminates using top-of-the-line color rendering CRI95+ LEDs. The color accuracy is perfect even without PS. With 198 60-degree-angle LEDs in a compact panel, the Amaran AL-H198c shines with an exceptionally even and stable brightness output of up to 3,430lux. Up to nine panels can be affixed together to gain a larger, softer and more intense light. It comes with a metal ball-head swivel mount so you can position your panel to the top of a HDV, DSLR, camcorder or even traditional stand. Power with either six AA batteries or any replaceable lithium battery. Four LEDs clearly display the remaining battery life. The brightness wheel allows you to manually dim or intensify the power of your light. You can also adjust color temperature precisely by turning the kelvin wheel.

Light output seems on par with the Switronix Torch LED as indicated by a previous reviewer, though I'd have to test them side my side to confirm. Light color quality is pretty awesome - we have turned a major corner here. Based on the white balance eye dropper in Aperture, I'm reading 4954k and 0 shift in tint (green vs. magenta). That's compared to 5176k and 22 point magenta shift that the F&V R300 produces (which is ok, as those ring lights are now used to light up my green screen, so the green bias works fine).
Update 3/10/15 - I did manage to find an AC power supply that works here on Amazon. The Neewer® CN-AC2 DC 7.5V 2A Switching Power Supply Adapter for Video Light CN-160 CN-126 has a dummy NP-F style battery plate and a 7.4V wall-wart transformer. As a switching power supply, I can use it internationally with the right plug adapter (no need for step down transformer). Now, if I have access to AC power, I can run the lights all day long and not worry about batteries, though the battery option is still there if I need it.
I do wish this unit had an input for an AC power supply, though I bought these largely because of the AA battery option for a compact international travel kit. With a fresh set of Eneloop NiMH batteries, I feel comfortable planning for 30 minutes of shoot time with this light. Up to about 35 minutes, there is a very gradual drop off of light. Around 35 minutes, the light output drops suddenly by about half and slowly declines from there. I probably ought to do a similar test at half power as well as with a Sony NP-F970 type battery, of which I have quite a few.
I have three other units I need to QA, but I think these have found a place in my lighting kit.
I do some video work for a Radio Station and I mostly do some interview stuff with it.I bought it because im working on a small documentary right now and my early footage was just too dark. This little sucker puts out a MASSIVE amount of light for its size, and its absolutely fantastic. As soon as i get a chance i will post some test footage of it but i can not say enough nice things about this light, its small compact and light weight. I also use it when i self tape video auditions, my agent says that my videos looks great with it. I attached a photo of it mounted on my Canon T3i with a Rode VidMic on one of the cold shoe mounts around the edges of it.
Its also nice to have around when the power goes out as the battery has a decent time, right around 4 hours I believe, but im using a Sony rechargeable battery M, and this thing is OLD.
I would recommend this light to anyone doing any kind of run and Gun shooting. I know that I'll be using it for my next 48hr Film fest whenever that may be.
