Very recently I found that Amazon has started selling an add-on power supply for CN-160 light. This power supply has an AC to DC Switching Power converter that attaches to a dummy battery component that converts regular AC power to 7.5 v 2 amp DC power to power the LED lights. The light is rated at 5600K, 660 Luminous flux (according to the manufacturer). It is pretty bright and when aggregated together is good for just about any studio purpose.
This makes a complete AC powered LED light for around $56.
I also picked up another part: a Triple Hot Shoe Adapter that will allow me to aggregate two or three of the LED light into one adapter to place in a soft box or umbrella setup to increase the overall light and soften it at the same time. The triple adapter is less than $16 on Amazon.

The best I have seen for an AC powered LED light is around $600-$900 for some of the more well known brands.
This unit would be ideal for a small head shot production facility and provides continuous lighting with very good color rendition.
