Fxlion has just released a new 48V portable power adapter that can power LED lights up to 1000W: the Fxlion SKY THREE. As its name doesn’t suggest, this adapter can take up to four 26V V-Mount batteries to give you all the power you need on location. So let’s take a closer look at it!
Chinese specialized battery company Fxlion is mostly known for its affordable NANO ONE and NANO TWO compact V-Mount batteries. However, they also make other power accessories like the PL-SP40 4-channel battery charger for Sony NP-F/Panasonic batteries.
With more powerful LED lights hitting the market recently – like the Nanlux Evoke 1200 or Aputure LS 600d Pro – you can’t simply power them out of one V-Mount battery. Indeed, these lights require up to 48V DC/25A of power, which is massive. So to solve that problem, Fxlion released the SKY THREE.
Fxlion SKY THREE – features
The Fxlion SKY THREE is a portable power adapter that can take up to three V-Mount batteries. It is not exactly a lightweight power adapter – ticking the scale at 2.2kg/4.4lbs without batteries – but it is fairly compact at just 17.8 x 16.2 x 18.1cm. However, I guess the weight is not an issue, as this adapter is designed to power heavy and very powerful LED lights.
On top of the Fxlion SKY THREE, you’ll find a handle, an On/Off switch, and a 48V output. If you use the power adapter with four 14.8V batteries, you can power LED lights up to 48V/720W. But, if you use four 26V batteries, you can power fixtures up to 48V/1000W, which should be enough for most lights in the market.
Price and availability
The Fxlion SKY THREE is available now, for €880.00. In comparison, the SWIT TD-R210S can power lights up to 48V/500W using only two batteries, and it retails for $530.00.
