Hive Lighting's New 1k Plasma Lamps Are The Brightest Lights You Can Plug into a Wall
The WASP 1000 (PAR) and the BEE 1000 (flood) can be plugged into a house circuit and provide the output of a 2.5k HMI.
Both fixtures drawing only 9.5 amps means you can plug two of these units into your average 20 amp house circuit in the U.S.. Not only less expensive than their HMI counterparts (for rental and ownership), but have 98 CRI full spectrum color and minimal heat. With a strike time of 30 seconds and a restrike time of 60 seconds, it also gets up and running (and color stabilized) faster than traditional HMIs. If you're thinking to purchase these lights, the WASP is $8,000 and the BEE is roughly $6,500.
