The Swiss Army Light: Introducing Aputure's New Credit Card Size LED
If you need an LED that is versatile and can fit virtually anywhere, take a look at Aputure's newest light.
It's called the Amaran M9 and though it's Aputure's smallest light yet, it manages to pack in plenty of desirable features. This thing is basically the size of a credit card and less than half an inch thick, affords you 90 minutes of use with every battery charge, is daylight balanced, and only costs $45.

Probably the most impressive feature of the Amaran M9 is its size, because it makes it incredibly versatile. It's essentially, as Aputure puts it, a "swiss army light" that can be used in as many ways as you can think up. Because you can mount this thing to just about anything using the M9 wall mount, 1/4-20" screw hole, and cold shoe, you can put it almost anywhere to replace practicals, including inside a fridge, on a dashboard, or on a computer to replicate the glow of a computer screen.
