A Word On Batteries for LED Lights
A lot of people have asked me about the best batteries to use with these lights. Here is a quick rundown on Sony NP-F batteries which are the most popular power source for lights like these.
The Watson brand is probably my favorite. They’ve held up better than my Sony branded units. You can check them out here.
They are a little more expensive than other knock off brands, but nothing beats them. If you’re ok with shorter run times, Amazon has tons of off brands. I also have many of these and they work well. Just check out ratings and comments.
NP-F style batteries have several capacities and thicknesses to consider. NP-F975 (large) NP-F770 (medium) and NP-F550 (Small). Choose the size that suites your applicate best. The NP-550 are great for small lights but don’t run as long. The larger sizes will give you more run time but are pretty bulky. You’ll definitely want larger batteries for big power hungry panels.
Any lights you think should have been on this list that I missed? Let me know! I’m hoping to do a part 3 in the series but I’ll need to save before pulling that trigger. Happy shooting/lighting!
