About Lowel Prime Power LED Lights
The Lowel Prime Power LED Light collection includes the 200, 400 and now the 800 models, each available in dedicated Daylight or Tungsten color versions. With a high CRI of 90+ for accurate color, Lowel Prime Power LED lights have both a brighter and wider beam output than the LED competition in their price class.
