Looks like reviews on Amazon.

According to Fakespot and Review Meta, reviews may be suspect.

Most of the reviews on Amazon are for the cheaper model if you look closely.

I got mine, a different make, from Amazon with charger and battery included for $40. I'm darn happy with it.

No lumen information and color temp information.
Well, the back of the light says "12W MAX" which I suppose is a figure for power input from the battery, not necessairly the LED rating in itself. A 12W LED may produce light output somewhere between a 60W and 100W tungsten incandescent light bulb, according to https://www.thelightbulb.co.uk/re...ens_watts/ and some other sources I read. I suppose there may be differences in efficiency, maybe some LEDs put out more light than others at a similar wattage, but I'm only trying to give a rough comparison.

gvbgear wrote above that the light can pur out 1070 lumens (total amount of light radiated) and 1250 lux at 3 feet (density / intensity within the area illumenated). If the light is putttng out like a hypothetical 12W LED it might put out 800 or so lumens per links like I pasted above, which isn't very far off from the max it appears to be rated for. It must be fairly bright, maybe remarkably bright if you aren't used to this sort of thing (yet).

I have a couple questions for gvbgear which I'll post in response to their comment in a moment.

Thanks for bringing this product to our attention here. I have a few questions!

It looks like the knob on the back lower right-hand side of the light controls brightness and color tempature. I suppose the user would press it to switch functions?

Above the knob is what looks like a display or maybe a preview of the light color tempature. If there is a display, what does it display?

If I wanted to make my own power cord to connect to a 12v power source, what are the specs/size of the power connector? If you don't know, do you sell a external power cord or know where I could get one?

And most important, is there a manual anywhere I could read or download for this? I couldnt find on one on the GVB website.

Thanks again!

I believe these are Sony L series battery powered. so you can get a dummy battery, similar to this but not necessary this one. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/pr...y_for.html
