Bescor Single LED 200 200w LED lights problem

Excuse me if this seems a basic question.

The sales dude at our beloved B&H advised me that a simple, cost effective and portable solution to lighting some very basic interviews in London and other European cities would be to use a Bescor Single LED-200 light.

Here's the link.

I need something that will can use with 240v if needed. This light is rated as being able to switch between 110 and 240.

The thing is it doesn't work. I'm not sure from the B&H website if there is supposed to be a battery with it as it says something about charging. I see no battery or place to put one. The power supply that comes with it is described as an AC/DC adapter.

There were no instructions in the box. So basically I am plugging it in, turning it on and expecting to see light. Am I supposed to charging something? I thought it was just plug it in and turn it on.

Before I try replacing power supplies and pulling the thing apart I want to make sure I'm not missing anything obvious.

Many thanks for your patience. As always I am running for the airport and dear ol' B&H is closed till Wednesday.



Thanks for all replies.

It's hard to tell from B&H or the Bescor web site if you need a battery. It sounds like you should be able to plug the ac adapter into the wall and the other end into the light. I'd suggest you contact Becor's customer service, which is reported by reviewers as being excellent. 631-420-1717. Email: carol@bescor.com

From reading the specs it appears to me to be an ac powered unit only, using the included transformer. If the transformer is 12V you can probably use any 12V battery pack with a cord with the appropriate connector, probably a coaxial connector. Run time is, of course, dependent on battery capacity and power setting.
