The CRI-2300 is Unilite's first high CRI site light and is part of their range of hexagonal rechargeable LED Site lights, but this one differs from the others with its ability to be mains powered and use the built-in rechargeable battery.
It has an output of 2300 lumens from a 20 W COB LED on the maximum setting and has three output levels of low, mid and high to chose from, as well as a choice of five colour temperatures of 2700 K, 3500 K, 4500 K, 5500 K and 6500 K.
Colour rendering index (CRI) is a measurement of a light sources ability to faithfully reveal the true colour of an object in comparison to a natural light source such as sunlight and is measured between 0-100. The CRI-2300 has a high CRI 96+ value, which means the quality of the light source is extremely good and shows colours in their true form and also helps reduce eye strain that lower CRI lights can cause.
Offering excellent light spread and power the CRI-2300 features three button on the back to control all the settings. The top button is the on/off button and next to it is the power level indicator that consists of five lights representing 20, 40, 60, 80 and 100% power. When it is turned on the power level indicators will light up to show remaining power.
Once turned on the brightness and colour temperature can then be altered to suit the task at hand. The middle button controls the colour temperature and has five lights next to it, each with the colour temperature wrote underneath, and each press of the button will cycle through these with a green light to show which colour temperature you are on. Similarly the bottom button controls the brightness output with each press cycling through low, mid, high. The three lights next to it have the lumen output wrote underneath and a green light will indicate which output you are on.
Utilising a 11.1 V 4400 mAh lithium-ion rechargeable battery, the CRI-2300 has a run time of up to 2 hours on the highest setting. The battery is easily recharged by lifting the dust cover on the back of the light and inserting the charging cable into the charging port at one end and inserting the other end into the mains socket. The included mains adaptor comes with four different plug attachments for use in multiple countries such as UK, USA, Australia and in the EU. The light can also be used continously whilst connected to the mains, even with a fully charged battery, which allows you to save the battery power if access to a mains socket is available when using the light.
While charging the five charging indicators on the back will display charging progress with one light flashing to start with before becoming solid and the next light flashing until eventually all five LEDs are solid after approximately 3 hours, 30 minutes full charge time.
It is made from industrial strength aircraft grade aluminium with super tough florescent yellow centre for increased visibility, and also features a large aluminium heat sink for heat dispersion.
A stand is tucked away at the back and can be pulled out and rotated within a 180° range so that the light can be angled in the perfect direction and it also doubles as a useful carry handle when pulled all the way out. The bottom of the stand features a large hole where the separately sold super strong magnet can be attached so that the light can be stuck to magnetic surfaces.
This site light is also compatible with the extendable single and double head tripods that are available to purchase separately.
