Frequently asked questions

How does Lykos⁺ compare to the original Lykos fixture?

Lykos+ uses the same chassis as Lykos but achieves over 40% more output. While the original Lykos included TIR lens technology, Lykos+ also includes Astra LEDs, employing the complete Astra LED design to maximise lumens per Watt. The optional DoP choice softbox has also been made stronger, larger, and easier to fit. Not only does this save time during setup, the softbox creates a large, sturdy source of light that produces soft, uniform shadows and is ideal for use on talent.

Is Lykos⁺ the same as the Manfrotto Lykos 2.0?

No. Lykos began as a joint project with Manfrotto. In this latest development each brand has taken the original design and optimised the features for its customers. At Litepanels we have taken this opportunity to align the LED technology in the Lykos⁺ with our best-selling Astra range.

What accessories are included with Lykos⁺?

Lykos⁺ includes a diffusion gel for combining all the individual LEDs into a single source of light, removing any cross-hatching or multiple shadows.

Can Lykos⁺ be controlled remotely?

Yes. An optional Bluetooth Dongle is available that allows you to connect Lykos⁺ to your iPhone or iPad and control multiple units with the Litepanels SmartLite Director iOS app.

How can I power Lykos⁺?

There are multiple ways to power Lykos⁺ when there is no mains electricity to use the included AC adapters. Lykos⁺ includes an L-Series battery mount. This is a Sony battery format, and we recommend the Anton/Bauer 7.2V NPF version. 3-light kits including the Anton/Bauer battery are available. Lykos⁺ can also be powered via a D-Tap cable, which is available as an optional accessory and will power from any compatible larger battery. For powering multiple Lykos⁺ from one battery, we recommend the optional QRC battery mount. This will clamp onto a stand and provide up to 3 D-Tap outlets.
