Here is an entry that will probably go down as a totally impractical build, but it is just so insane that I had to share it. I mean I can’t see anyone actually using such a bright light (especially with the low CRI they probably produce), but it can set the ground for some a groundbreaking cinema lights.
The build, made by EcProjects, is using 18 (yes eighteen) 100WATT LEDs, 2 one kg heatsinks and 2 6-cells 5200mHa LiPo batteries. There are also some peripherals: connectors, LED drivers, lenses, fans and high-amp wires. It is almost doubling our previous record holder, a 1,000W light.
This is by no means an easy project and it involves quite a bit of drilling and milling, as well as soldering and power management. Hit the jump to see the final sample footage which is blinding.
