Introducing the solution for studio quality flash totally independent of power cords and generators: The Flashpoint Rovelight 600 MonoLight. A self-contained full featured 600ws strobe that goes anywhere, with its own interchangeable internal high energy 6600mAh lithium battery, with wireless controller, capable of over 500 full power flash bursts on a single charge, without heavy inverters, generators or external battery packs.
The compact Rovelight 600 has a 22 step range of accurate regulated power from full to 1/128th power, controlable from the rear console or the remote controller. Flash duration can be as low as 1/15,000 second for absolute action stopping power. The handy built in LED modeling lamp conserves your batteries energy reserve, with a special timer for auto shutoff when not in use. Recycle speed is selectable between 2 fast modes .3-3.5s or .3-4.5s and offers confirmation with audio and modeling light indication. All of these system functions are displayed clearly on the generous LED display, including the link to the included 16 channel TRS 2.4GHz Remote Controller.
The Rovelight 600 can be triggered using the TRS radio controller, intelligent or basic optical slave, or traditionally with a standard 3.5mm sync cord.
This unit can be accessorized to include extra Lithium Batteries, and, if you should ever need, an Arctic Parka.

You will need to purchase a separate trigger to make this light work.
Light is great! Portable with lots of power. However the included trigger is garbage.
Love the light, never got the remote to work
I am a hobbyist who enjoys taking lifestyle, editorial, fashion and portraits. I purchased this light in November during the sale and so far I love it! I use the light with the 22" Glow beauty dish and a 60" Glow reflective umbrella. Light consistency is great. Light Kelvin color varies around 5500k - 5600k depending on power level. Portability is fantastic. With the beauty dish I can set up and be ready to shoot in 2-5 mins. The head has some heft to it, so ensure your light stand is medium to heavy duty. With a beauty dish a sandbag is a must. Power is another thumbs up. I did an engagement shoot and a fashion shoot back to back on a single battery charge. Still had plenty of juice left over. The remote, oh the remote. I placed a fresh Duracell battery in and performed the rest procedure. The remote works, but it requires very firm button press. The remote is primitive and appears fragile. I have had no issues with it, but it looks like it could break at any time. I need to purchase a spare soon. There are countless wireless triggers that can you used to achieve HSS or to just trigger the flash, but you will not be able to adjust the power level remotely. I wish Adorama would make an updated, more robust remote. Speaking of HSS, I have never tried this feature. All my outdoor shoots are used with a 3 or 6 stop ND filter so I cant speak on the Rovelights HSS performance. Bottom line is I am happy with this light and would highly recommended it to fellow photographers.
The Rovelight is great!! NO questions about it... However, the remote is complete "garbage". It worked the first day...and that was it!!! I put 2 fresh batteries, pressed the reset button as instructed...but nothing!! I had to get a set of Yongnuo 622C transceivers and a "Male 3.5mm miniphone to PC" cable I recommend that you do the same...or you will not be happy about the remote.
I bought it because I needed something stronger than a regular flash... Since the price was right, I bought one. As soon as I got it, I had 2 shoots the following day (outdoor). I took the Rovelight with me and I love it!!!! It is perfect with my X-T1...LOL
Thrilled to have this light as an addition to my light set. In the 2 months I've owned the light I've used it on about 5 commercial shoots ranging from travel and tourism, industrial and architechtural photography. The quality of the light with the beauty dish and with the octabox is really nice. Great color consistency and reliable output. The build quality is superb, this thing is built like a tank. So, although its portability is awesome, but don't expect this to be lightwieght either - that doesn't bother me at all. The time saved without having to hassel with cords is a huge value. I was skeptical about battery life at first, having used it - I don't worry about that at all any more. The controls on the back of the light work great and once I spent some time figuring out the controls and decifering the users manual - it's all pretty straight forward. The reason this did not get a full 5 stars are: 1) The specs online and in the users manual are differnt which makes you doubt all the info about the light. 2) The main difference in specs listed vs. reality is the range of the supplied transmitter. No way does this fire at 80m - its range outdoors is about 25 feet. All that was solved with purchasing the Pixel King Pro tranceiver/reciever kit. 3) The supplied transmitter is supposed to let you modify the light output - this works intermitently and the feedback beep from the light is too quiet to hear more than about 10 feet away so I'm always unsure if it registered and end up double checking the back of the light anyway. 4) The user's manual is not clear and takes a good bit of figuring out. Overall the light is great. I'm happy to have it and will be ordering more of these. Flashpoint's new gear - the beauty dish and 60" octabox are also well constructed and work flawlessly with the light. Try to compare to other battery powered units online - not one comes close to this value. This unit is lighter, more compact and less expensive than just anything you'll find.
Great product,works as advertised. Beautiful color balanced light,easy to use. Setup is quick and easy. But doesn't come with a manual. I've only had it for a week, so far great light. I've taken some test shots with no setup, just turn it on and shot . Colors are very nice, recycle time is very good at low power. It can freeze action,thought not tested this option yet.
I used this light on location for a commercial shoot and was very impressed. No wires and sets up fast - all I had to do was set the light on the stand and turn it on which allowed me to start shooting immediately. It's powerful enough to balance against the harsh midday sun, and I was surprised at how far away I could shoot from. Refresh time at full power was maybe a second, so shooting too quickly gave me a few dark frames. At half power I could shoot basically non-stop (I tried it just to see if the light would keep up with me and it did.) The carrying case seems pretty durable and the whole thing is easy to pack up and transport. This is really an outstanding value for the price and made location shooting fast and easy. Be aware that the light does Not include the reflector, but you can still use an umbrella and get the shots you need. Not an issue when you know in advance to order that.
Just received the product, so I can not do yet any comments about the operation, but the big disappointment is not including the reflector, contacted people customer service and they said that is not included, but the box is written that includes it, the worst of all is that Adorama does not sell separately to fix an umbrella reflector, I hope this will be resolved. The case for transport is made of good material and everything has a good finish, will write a review as it is used to photograph
