The JTL DL-600 is a Mobilight Soft Box Kit. The kit contains 2 Mobilight 301 Units, 800 Air Cushioned Stands, 24" x 24" Soft Box, Soft Box Connector, 33" White Umbrella & Wheeled Studio Carrying Case. The JTL Mobilight is designed like the Versalight series for on-location and studio photographers, but the Mobilight series can vary its power source. It can draw its power from either a battery or an electric outlet, so it is not bound by the physical limits of a wire or cord.

These were used on location as main and fill. The good about the kit: the case helps to transport everything. The bad: I had to send a battery pack back for a faulty transformer, then send a monilight back for new internals since it failed to fire. Both happended within months of ordering. The electronics are very cheap and the recycle time past a certain point is way too long to be useful. I would stay away at all costs. Save longer and go for the Bowens Gemini 400RX as I am going to do.
I have been taking photos for years, but mostly landscapes and candid shots. I wanted to get into portrait photography, and needed to experiment with using and controlling multiple lights. Because I am retired, my finances are limited. I was looking for a complete setup at a reasonable cost. I was very impressed with the completeness of the JTL kit and the quality of the equipment.
I took this kit with me to photograph a 3 month old baby and used one light with a 2 x 3 softbox & the other light with included umbrella for fill. I was very pleased with results and the recycle time was very quick at 1/4 power. The lightstands are very sturdy, the batteries are light and make location shooting very easy, having the dual use of AC power is a bonus. The lights have an aluminum body & feel sturdy and the carrying case makes it all easy to transport. One of the battery units makes a loud squelching noise but I emailed JTL and they gave me an RMA number and are sending a replacement. For the price you will not find a kit this well made.
Have only worked with the lights for a few weeks. But it has worked flawlessly. This kit will cover many lighting set-ups and is mobile even where AC is not available. Ordered with the DigiFirer radio remote, and love the cordless freedom. Wow, this is alot of great equipment for a small price. It is to be seen how these monolights hold up under heavy use. But first impressions are VERY favorable. Has worked consistently with no color shift. Would definitely recommend for advanced amateurs and Pros with a need for mobility.
