According to Nanlite, the new PavoTube II 15C/30C feature new internals and a new outside casing. Nanlite listened to feedback from commercial production teams, film crews, and photographers over the past few years and used that feedback to create the PavoTubes. The LED chips on PavoTube II 15C/30C are surrounded by diffusion materials so they can offer better performance for shooting highly-reflective objects or when you use them as in-frame practical lights.

The illumination area of the tubes has also been enlarged because Nanlite has shortened caps on both ends.

The PavoTube II 15C/30C both utilize RGBWW color mixing technology. They feature a CCT operating range of 2700-7500K with G/M±150 adjustment. Both tubes are also claimed to have slightly better output compared with the previous versions. According to Nanlite, the PavoTube II 15C and PavoTube II 30C are 10% and 20% brighter respectively.

The onboard controls of PavoTube II 15C/30C have been optimized with a much more intuitive two-knob operation. Now, one short press of the dimmer button reinstates the previous intensity setting instantly. Both tubes have built-in Bluetooth and 2.4G modules with NANLINK APP controllability. Multiple parameters are customizable under CCT/HSI/FX modes. The lights also support wired DMX/RDM for control in groups.


The PavoTube II 15C utilizes a 14.8V/2200aAM lithium battery and the PavoTube II 30C has a 14.8V/4400mAH lithium battery. They can also be powered by connecting the included 15V/2A and 15V/4A power adapters respectively.
