Godox SL300II Bi-Color COB LED Light Released

Godox SL300II Bi-Color COB LED Light Released

Godox has released a new bi-color version of its affordable 300W COB LED light: the SL300II Bi. This version can go from 2800 to 6500K, and it still has all the features of the previous version: a built-in Bowens Mount, high CRI/TLCI values, a silent-operating mode, and much more. So let’s look at this affordable new offering from Godox!

Chinese manufacturer Godox has a solid reputation for creating products with an excellent price/feature ratio. While they might not get all the bells and whistles of higher-end competitors’ offerings, Godox products effectively get the job done without breaking the bank.

Earlier this year, the company introduced the Godox SL300II, and Litemons LA LED fixtures. They’re back a couple of months later with the Godox SL300II Bi, a bi-color version of its little brother.

Similar features

The Godox SL300II Bi has a lot of things in common with the daylight-only SL300II. So let’s get straight to the point and resume all the similarities between both lights:

  • A maximum power draw of 320W
  • You can dim them from 0 to 100%
  • High color rendering with CRI readings of 96 and a TLCI of 97
  • A standard Bowens-Mount to attach lighting modifiers
  • You can control them via the optional RC-A6 remote
  • Both lights have a built-in fan, but you can turn it off if needed, with a light output reduced to 20%

As you can tell, both lights can’t be controlled via DMX or a smartphone app, and they can’t be battery-powered. However, if you’re after simple, easy-to-use LED lights without paying for features you don’t need, the Godox SL300II and SL300II Bi are excellent offerings.

Godox SL300II vs. SL300II Bi

However, the SL300II Bi also has several differences compared to the SL300II. First, it is slightly bigger and heavier at 40.7 x 31.6 x 19.9cm with the weight of 3.78Kg.

Next, the Godox SL300II Bi has a bi-color COB LED chip that can go from 2.800 to 6.500K. Bi-color LED fixtures have less light output than daylight-only versions, and the SL300II Bi is no different.

At 3.200K, you’ll get 44.900 lux at 1m/3ft with the included reflector. It is slightly better at 5.600K, with an output of 49.900 lux at 1m/3ft, still with the included reflector. However, these readings are close to two times less than the SL300II, which reaches an outstanding 99.300 lux light output.

Last but not least, the Godox SL300II Bi includes additional Candle, Fire, and Fireworks lighting effects, on top of the Flash, Broken Bulb, Television, and Storm effects.
