Finally, lights that work on battery and A/C power!
I'd been contemplating purchasing these lights, but finally got to see them in action at a show (in another booth). Great, bright, CLEAN light and it projects wide and long. The lights stay cool to touch, the battery packs last all day with two lights running. All I needed for my tabletop display. I advise getting the hard side case- the soft side cases do not protect as well. They have to be packed into a solid box. (Per the light owners that I quizzed at the show.) Very, very worth the investment.
They give off a lovely bright light and the battery really does last a long time running 2 lights. The only issue I have is that I cannot seem to tighten the base so it holds my preferred angle. Even at its tightest it tilts to its default.I also purchased the hard case which does a nice job storing a pair of lights. It'll be rather crowded for 2 pairs, but I guess I could take the foam insert out of one side.I plan on buying a second set some time in the future.
Silicon Lightworks: Thanks for your feedback Fiona. Sorry to hear you are having an issue locking in place a desired arm angle...this should not be happening. Fortunately, there may be an easy solution to your issue. Simply remove the set screw, pull apart the fitting and "scuff-up" the now exposed interior surfaces of the fitting with some coarse sandpaper. This will create a little extra friction in the fitting which should then hold the arm angle in place. Please feel free to call us and we can walk you through the process step-by-step (it's super easy). If this does not work, we would be happy to exchange your light for a new one as it is well within our 1 year warranty period.
Battery Powered Lighting
I have used the product at two trade shows and the battery lasted more than 8 hours powering two lights.
I was looking for an alternative to paying high electric cost at Expos and Trade Shows for the lighting of my banner signs and displays. I didn't find anything that was practical that wasn't thousands of dollars. In my former business for 22 years I designed lighting for commercial and residential projects and knew what would make my booth stand out. I needed portability, ease of set up, and the correct focused intensity and color of light to have the best appeal. When I found Silicon Lightworks on the internet I was quite surprised and a little skeptical. Their products are everything I was looking for, small and portable at a very affordable cost. What was the catch? I called the company to see if they had a good knowledge base of display and banner lighting concepts. They were able to answer all of my questions, so I purchased their products. I have now used their lighting package at many shows (the lights paid for my investment in electrical savings after only 3 shows) the battery is small and easily concealed and will last up to 8 hours powering 2 lights. The crisp white color of the light shows my banner and display perfectly. Amazing light intensity that really makes my booth pop compared to others. Very focused to prevent glare. I am very pleased with my purchase and with my lighting background I am very discerning. I purchased extra batteries and recommend everyone does the same it makes it so easy to always have a fresh battery ready to go. Impressive product!
