    I like it. I wish it had the option for external power or battery swaps. Or at least, have the charging USB-based so it can be charged on the go and in-between shoots with a simple and inexpensive power bank…

    Not bad, and I really like that it comes with barndoors. Although it seems kind of expensive compared to other options such as Yongnuo’s light wands.

      I think they look great, its just the battery that worries me. And it was YongNuo that went from exchangeable batteries to built-in in their mark II wand, so I can’t help but think Godox were likely influenced by that.

      Where the Westcott Ice Light went the other way around, from built-in originally, to exchangeable batteries in their mark II wand.

      It looks like its just 4 screws to open the LC500 handle, so hopefully the battery can be replaced reasonably easily. Though if the batteries are not easily available and reasonably priced, a lot of wands could potentially be headed for landfill in few years.

      A lot of these will be used by wedding photographers, so AD200 or AD400 batteries would make sense for them.

      Godox also need to start moving the LED lights to the one common 2.4GHz radio system.

        To some extent non removable batteries are a better long term bet that removable ones. Removable batteries tend to be sealed. If you can get at the cells by undoing the screws then re-celling the device should be very easy.

    Hopefully they will include some kind of gels for color options.

    Will the Godox A1 App be able to control these as well?

      Hi Brandon,

      It may do if using the A1 to relay the Bluetooth to radio, as they A1 provides 2.4GHz and 433MHz for the Godox LED lights.

      Personally I think Godox need to bite the bullet as soon as possible and move the LEDs to the one 2.4GHz radio system.
