Shenzhen Nice Photographic Equipment Co. have unveiled the n-flash, a portable monolight with an integrated lithium battery and built-in wireless radio receiver.

A range of battery powered flash lighting solutions are available for location photographers, but anything more powerful than a speedlight invariably requires a battery pack that is separate from the flash head. Recent companies to buck the trend include Priolite and Dison whose lights have built-in batteries.

Now Shenzhen Nice Photographic Equipment Co. have unveiled the n-flash, a portable monolight with an integrated lithium battery. The n-flash also has a built in wireless receiver, which means allowing your lighting setup can be entirely free from dangling cables. IGBT power control makes the flash duration shorter at lower power levels, meaning the light can be used for high speed photography.
