LitePad HO+ looks and performs similar to the current LitePad HO fixtures. HO+ continues to allow photographers and filmmakers to hide, tape, Velcro and rubberband LitePads in the areas they need that extra kiss of soft, indirect light. The upgraded differences between LitePad HO and Litepad HO+ are: LED's on ALL edges, interior connector and the number one requested upgrade now available in Daylight or Tungsten balanced units.
Except for the larger 12"x12" & 24"x24" units, most of the original LitePads only had LED's on two edges. LitePad HO+ fixtures have LED's on all four edges no matter what the size. This change becomes particularly significant for the 6"x6" and 6"x12" sizes. Those two units had the same number of LED's as their thinner 3"x6" and 3"x12" counterparts; meaning that even though they were largerthey didn't generate significantly more light, they just illuminated more surface area of the unit.
Now that these two HO+ units have LED's on all four edges they are noticeably brighter and much more useful. In my opinion the 6"x6" unit is the perfect light choice to mount directly to smaller cameras and the 6"x12" Axiom just became the most efficient and useful unit of the range.
Say goodbye to the pigtail that was permanently wired to the original LitePads. Now there is an internal connector that you plug your power supply such as theLitePad Transformer, AA Battery Holder, Camera or External Battery or Vehicle Cigarette Lighter directly into.
Now that the pigtail is gone you'll want tomake sure you've got plenty of LitePad extension cables. We've even modified theextension cables so that they've got a 90 degree angle connector so that the connection doesn't stick out so far from the unit.
Easily, the number one upgrade request we've gotten for LitePad is to have it available as a Tungsten balanced unit. The previous HO units were only availablein a Daylight balance.
After years of hearing customers wish that we offered a Tungsten LitePad so that they didn't have to add CTO and sacrifice precious light output, LitePad HO+ is now available in both Tungsten and Daylight.
We now have access to high-quality Tungsten balanced LED's, allowing us to make Tungsten balanced LitePads with a fantastic warm output. To everyone who ever made that Tungsten LitePad wish to us, WISH GRANTED.

I use this to illuminate my display case. The small size makes it perfect for tight spots and lighting of specific items in the display. AC power means I don't have to worry about changing out batteries and can leave the items lit as long as I would like.
