1. How to power the light?
a. NP-F series battery. Such as NP-F970/NP-F750/NP-F55N.
b. V-mount/Gold mount battery via a D-tap cabel.
c. Power bank or USB charger which can output 5V/ 2A. (ONLY OUTPUT 10W)
Notice: Batteries can't be charged by AL-F7.
2.Brightness can't be changed.
If you are using the USB power, it is normal. The USB power only can supply a 5V*2A=10W power. But the max power of AL-F7 is 15W. So the brightness can't be changed when the brightness beyond 80%.
PS: Some USB charger or power bank only can output 1A or 500mA electricity.
