I use these all the time. Inexpensive versatile light tubes. They can last for hours when not on full power. Also good for hair and shoulder light for interviews.

these are freakin great buys, tho with some compromises

Their magnets are great. they're fairly color accurate, except on the lower end. the biggest gripe I have on these is that... the power supplied won't charge or keep them on if you need them to stay on for long amounts of time.

Surprisingly powerful/versatile lights

I watched a video by Daniel Norton using these lights and decided to give them a try. I was surprised at how powerful they are. Using them allows you to use these instead of gels on your strobe. I only wish there was a way to narrow the beam without adding barn doors. The magenta light in the photo is from the PavoTube. The rest is from a Westcott Optical Spot on a Profoto B10 Plus.

Perfect little light

Especially with the ability to couple them and the control you have over them l, these are great lights. I bought four more and have used them for weeks now. Zero complaints.

When you need some color or need to light a certain area, this is it. Portability for a one man band is the incentive for there lights

Does this work with the Nanlite Nanlink Remote?

Does this work with the Nanlite Nanlink Remote?
Asked by: Travis
Yes, the Nanlite Nanlink 2.4 GHz Remote Control would be compatible for use with the lights in the Nanlite PavoTube II 6c 2-Light Kit. It will control the brightness of the light as well as change the color temperature. You will also be able to control the HSI with the remote. The effects will be able to be controlled as well, but not as precise as using the NANLINK app. The Nanlite PavoTube II 6c will be compatible for use with the new NANLINK app, but you will also need to update the current firmware on the PavoTube II 6C to firmware version v1.00.11. It is available as a free download on Nanlite's website.
