http://www.dslrfilmnoob.com/2012/06/1... The TorchLED BOLT by Switronix is an extremely high power LED light panel. At full power it puts out around 200 watts of equivalent light (about 3800 lux). The unit is a bit bigger and bulkier then other LED light panels, but it does provide more then 10 times the amount of light.

The TorchLED BOLT is perfect for situations where you have no access to electricity and still need a lot of light in a very small package. Three TorchLED BOLT light panels could be the perfect setup for a basic outdoor lighting kit.

But there are a few down sides. First and probably the biggest problem for people on a budget is the price. At $299 the TorchLED BOLT is probably more then some are willing to spend. I personal don't believe that the $299 price tag is out of line for the amount of light this panel provides, but I could see many people opting for very long power cords and cheaper CFL kits.

The other concern is that even though this would be perfect for outdoor shooting, the case is filled with ventilation holes. Any rain could be a death sentence for the unit. Although, honestly that is a very easy thing to avoid, just don't dip it in water.

Overall, if you need that much light in this kind of package, I would highly recommend you consider the TorchLED BOLT in your selection process. It is by far the best bang for your buck I've seen so far in LED light panels and I'm still amazed at how much light it provides.

If you're in the market for something like this, right now (until august) B&H is offering a special offer that includes a free battery and charger (the one in the video) when you buy the TorchLED BOLT. Here is the link if you're interested: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product...

Correction: I intended to say 660Ah battery or 6600mAh, instead I say 660mAh battery. The correct rating for that extremely large battery is 6600mAh (660Ah).
