At the core of the Molus X60’s brilliance lies its COB light engine, delivering a formidable 60 watts of power output. Remarkably, this compact powerhouse can sustain full illumination for up to 50 minutes before requiring a recharge, thanks to its efficient design.

The Molus X60 comes in two variants: the bi-color model and the RGB version. The bi-color variant offers a temperature range spanning from 2700 to 6500 Kelvin, accompanied by an impressive CRI rating of 95 and a TLCI rating of 97. Meanwhile, its RGB counterpart elevates color accuracy even further with a stellar TLCI rating of 98, alongside a commendable CFI of 95.

Designed to fit snugly in the palm of a filmmaker’s hand, the Molus X60 emits a meticulously calibrated beam of light, boasting a luminous flux of 2680 Lux at 3.3 feet and 6500K. It caters primarily to social media content creators, solo videographers, and vloggers seeking a lightweight and portable lighting solution for on-the-go usage.

The Molus X60’s DynaVort MKII active cooling system sets a new standard in compact cooling technology. Despite its diminutive size, this cooling mechanism effectively dissipates heat, thereby extending the lifespan of the chip-on-board LED. Furthermore, users have the flexibility to power the light using the supplied adapter, an optional cable, or the additional battery grip, which houses a rechargeable 2550 mAh battery for seamless field operations.

Additionally, an array of dynamic lighting effects, including SOS, paparazzi, TV, and more, can be easily activated. The light also features a music mode, synchronizing its output with the rhythm of the accompanying music.
