SPECIFICATIONS VIDLED Standard LED Series LIGHTS
Here's some detailed information on our lights.  We'll also throw in some halogen lights in the mix, as a comparison to the VIDLED lights.  We've listed the Bescor MLP-645 dimmable halogen light, which uses a 50 W halogen bulb; and a Sunpak Readylight 20 with a 15W bulb.  
Please also note the beam angle: a wider beam always yields lower luminocity because the light is spread over a larger area.

Notes:
*
We didn't measure temperature of housing as the light does not stay on long enough. It's a great little light for the money, but don't expect more than about 15 minutes run time on one charge, and it takes several hours to re-charge the battery pack..
**
Another nice light, but our test-unit had a horrible HOTSPOT in the middle of the beam. Since we measure the center, the above luminocity for the MPL-645 is misleading. Once we even out the beam, we measured: ~60 Lux with dichroic filter, and ~220 Lux without filter.

Functions
Once a power source is plugged in, use the potentiometer to control the amount of light.
No external power source required. A switch turns the battery meter LCD on; once the switch is ON, use the potentiometer to regulate the amount of light.
Usable 1/4" 20 threads 5 (2 on top, 3 on bottom) 1 (1 on bottom)

Advantages

+ fully dimmable
+ low cost

+ includes battery pack, and comes with charger (110-240V; 50/60Hz)
+ ready to go
+ VERY convenient
+ no wires/cables coming from the light
+ includes an LCD battery meter
+ fully dimmable
Disadvantages over other lights
- no display of remaining battery power
- requires external power source

- once battery runs out, the unit has to be recharged
- higher initial cost (but no battery pack necessary)
- run time is fixed by the internal battery pack

Comments

Battery pack is Li-Ion, NON replaceable and rated for ~500 recharges. The LEDs should outlive the battery pack. Should the battery pack wear out, the unit is still operational by using an external power source
