So what’s new?

  • New All-in-one Control Box – The new 2.0 LiteCloth controllers now have the AC built-in, allowing for a faster and simpler setup.
  • Upgraded Cable System – Thread-lessClick in and out for fast, precise, and secure connections. 
  • Effects Mode Added – Each effect can be programmed according to speed and intensity.
  • Bluetooth for App Control – Control a single light or a group of lights via app control.
  • Grommets – For peace of mind and additional mounting options, each LC-160 and LC-120 2.0 are fitted with 8 high-strength metal grommets. **Only available on the LC-160 and LC-120 models.
  • LC-160RGBWW 2.0 – Now adds green and magenta shift control & Lee / Rosco Filters. **Only available on the LC-160RGBWW 2.0 model.

It is good to see that the LiteCloth 2.0 fixtures now have an integrated all-in-one control box and Bluetooth app control.

For this review, I am going to concentrate on the LC-160 2.0 as this is bound to be the most popular of the five LiteCloth 2.0 fixtures that are available.

Erik reviewed the original LiteCloth LC-160 on the site a few years ago. You can see the review above.

What is it?

In a nutshell, the Intellytech LC-160 2.0 is a portable, versatile LED lighting solution that has a Kelvin color temperature range of 3,000K-10,000K. It can be run off a single flight safe camera battery or mains power.

What do you get?

The LC-160 2.0 is sold as a complete kit. Here is what you get:

  • 2×2 LED Mat
  • Softbox W/ Diffuser & Grid
  • Mounting Bracket & Double Jointed Silver Stud
  • All-In-One Controller W/ V-Mount OR Gold Mount Battery Plate (choose one) –  Works Universally 100-240V.
  • Hard, Crushproof Case –  18″x16″x4.5″. 
  • Grommet Ties
  • PowerCON Power Cable

It is nice to get an included hard case, especially if you are someone who travels a lot. Hard cases are also not cheap, so getting one included in the package certainly saves you some hard-earned cash.

Compact & easy to travel with?

The LC-160 2.0 is a 22″ x 22″ LED Mat (2’x2′ W/ included softbox) that folds down to a 12″ x 12″ square.

The light is essentially four 1×1 panels that are combined to create a single larger lighting source.
