SIRUI T30 Pixel Tube Released - A Compact, Affordable, and Stackable LED Tube

SIRUI recently released its first RGBWW LED pixel tube: the SIRUI T30. This compact 30W fixture has 13 built-in special effects and six Pixel effects. It has a maximum brightness of 730lx at 1m/3ft, and you can combine up to four tubes together without any tools to create a longer tube. So, let’s take a closer look at this affordable pixel tube!

While SIRUI is more known for its affordable lenses and tripods, such as the SVT75 one-step height adjustment video tripod we recently discussed, the company also produces LED lights like the Blaze series launched earlier this year.

If you’re looking for affordable pixel tubes, SIRUI recently launched an interesting 30W battery-powered option: the SIRUI T30.

SIRUI T30 – features

The SIRUI T30 is a 30W pixel tube that measures 37 x 4.5 x 5cm/14.5 x 1.77 x 1.97in for a weight of 760g/1.68 lb.

The T30 has a CCT range of 2,500K-7,000K with green-magenta adjustment, and according to SIRUI, it has high CRI ratings of 96 and a TLCI of 98. Regarding output, SIRUI claims a light output of 2,580lx at 50cm/1.64ft and 730lx at 1m/3ft.

In terms of color modes, you’ll find everything you can expect from an RGBWW light, including RGB and HSI modes and no less than 13 built-in lighting effects. If you switch to Pixel Effect mode, you’ll find six effects: color cycle, gradient, multiple colors, etc. You can adjust the speed and intensity of each lighting effect.

Inside the T30, you’ll find an internal battery with a 37.4Wh capacity. SIRUI claims that the battery life at full power is 70min, similar to the amaran PT1c. You can recharge the battery via the USB Type-C port at the back of the SIRUI T30. Furthermore, you can also use a 45W PD charger to run the light continuously, but only with a light output of 80% in CCT mode.

At the back of the SIRUI T30, you’ll also find a USB Type-A port that you can use to recharge other accessories. Also, you’ll find a tiny status screen, control buttons, two magnets on each end of the tube to mount the light on magnetic surfaces, and a built-in fan. You can turn the fan off in the menu if needed, which is handy. You can control the pixel tube via the buttons at the back of the fixture or via the SIRUI App.

You’ll find a cold shoe with two pins on one end of the SIRUI T30 pixel tube. At the other end of the tube is a male cold shoe adapter with a 1/4″-20 thread. This smart design allows you to connect multiple pixel tubes together without any tools. You can connect up to four tubes, and the Master tube at the top will control and “pass” the pixel mode to the other tubes.
