Is there an RGB flood light that uses 18650s?

Hi,

I’m currently looking for an RGB flood light that can mix colors for ambient lighting during pictures and videos.
If it’s RGBW it would be a plus, but not necessary.

Are there any of these that uses 18650s? If not, what are some recommended rechargeable ones?

I’ve been trying to search Aliexpress, Banggood and eBay for these, but I can only find RGB zoomies and 220v/12v flood lights.

If all else fails I might just mod a 12V RGB flood light with 18650 batteries and a DC/DC converter, however it wouldn’t have LVP unless it cuts out at around 3V.

Cheers.

EDIT: These from Banggood are the closest I’ve come to a good RGBW light, they allegedly have >95CRI cold and warm white LEDs. Might buy a couple and try them out, and use an 18650 battery bank with it instead.

Current lights:

Emisar D4V2 SST-20 4000K, D4V2 Ti SST-20 2700K, D4V2 Ti SST-20 4000K, D4V2 Ti XPL-Hi V3 1A, D4SV2 SST-20 3000K Noctigon KR1 OSRAM W2, K9.3 XPL-Hi V3 3A + SST-20 2700K | Fireflies PL47G2 XPL HI V3 3A, PL47G2 SST-20 4000K, E07 219B 4500K Lumintop FW1A SST-20 4000K, Tool AA 2.0 Nitecore LR12 XP-L HD V6 6500K, TUP XP-L HD V6 6500K | Sofirn C01S SST-20 4000K, SP10S LH351D 5000K, IF25/LT1-M SST-20 2700K + 6500K w/3D printed diffuser, BLF SP36 LH351D 5000K, BLF LT1 | ZebraLight SC700d XHP 70.2 5000K Hi-CRI, SC53Fc XP-L2 4000K Convoy C8+ SST-40 6500K Acebeam H30 XHP 70.2 5000K | Manker E14 III LH351D 6500K

Some time ago I put together:

- BLF A6 host
- pebbled TIR (probably 60 deg)
- Cree XM-L Color
- 3V – 4.2V Driver Circuit Board for Cree XM-L Color

It works OK, however when the driver is hot, it’s not possible to change modes, it works as one mode only flashlight.

You can check those items (disclaimer: I’ve never tested them):
- Triple Cree XP-E2 Red Green Blue LED
- KZ-3016 Individual Triple LED 20mm Driver Circuit Board
- KZ-3905 46mm AMC7135 Triple Output LED Driver Board
- I3N 20mm 3-Individual Channel Driver Board

Good luck!

Thanks for the link to the light on Banggood. I don’t know of any offhand that use replaceable cylindrical batteries like 18650s, but if you like the Banggood light the Pixel G1s is similar but larger with more battery capacity while still being able to run off a power bank using a Type C connector (both A-C and C-C), and is available on Amazon. It works well as a photo or camping light, has adjustable color temperature in white mode as well as being fully RGB. It also has cool fun modes like the Anduril modes (candlelight, etc.), and is well built. I got one a couple of weeks ago and bought another one right away since the build quality and usability were much higher than a similar GVM light I’d gotten last year.

The downside is it’s three times expensive as the one you linked, but only seems to have twice the size and battery capacity.
