Batteries are little by little getting higher in capacity and able to increase the amps making them more capable to power those power-hungry LED lights as well as we have at full power and for longer periods of time. With a peak load of 305W, a pair of Swit PC-C420S‘s should be able to power a 600-watt light at full power. That is something I would like to test!
