Lume Cube Introduces A Compact Bi-color Continuous LED Light

Lume Cube has introduced the Lume Cube Panel, a new battery-powered bi-color LED light that’s about the size of a smartphone. 

Lume Cube said the pocket-sized LED light offers 3200K to 5600K light adjustable in increments of five percent, as well as a small built-in LCD control screen that shows battery level, color temperature, brightness and operating time.

When charged, the LED light can be used for 1.5 hours at full power and up to 7.5 hours or longer on low power. In addition to featuring a micro USB charging port, the light includes a secondary USB-C charging port on its new LED pane. Users can recharge using either connector.

The Lume Cube Panel's integrated 4040mAh Li-polymer battery doubles as a five volt power bank for recharging other USB devices. The panel offers 1600 lux max brightness at 1.6 feet and is shipped with a white clip-on softening diffuser and cold shoe mount.

Operators can adjust the panel's settings on the light itself. It is not controllable using Bluetooth and cannot be synced with a camera.
