BQ Mount battery and mounting system for Quasar Science Rainbow LED

BQ MOUNT 2020 06

Let’s face it. We all want to power our lights with batteries these days and some lights don’t have a DC option. Quasar Science has fixed this problem with its Rainbow RGBX tube LED light by teaming up with Block Battery to make its Rainbow LED light powerable with a DC power source, as well as adding mounting options. The BQ Mount is a compact, all in one solution.

Bring on the Batteries!
