LitraTorch Adventure Light Review | Amazing Light For Your GoPro

Published

on

If you are in the market for a small portable light kit for your GoPro you may want to take a look at the Litra Torch. This light is super compact but is extremely powerful. The light comes in at a size of 1.5 x 1.5 inches but is capable of outputting 800 lumens on its brightest setting, 450 lumens on the medium setting and 100 lumens on its lowest setting. It features an ultra wide beam which is perfect for use with GoPro’s and other wide angle action cameras. The construction of this impressive little light is made of a high quality ribbed aluminium which helps dissipate the heat. The durable build also makes it impact and drop resistant, perfect for all adventurists. The Litra Torch is water proof up to 30 feet making it very useful for divers and taking underwater video and photos.

On thing I really like about the LitraTorch is the fact that they have made the light to be very versatile when it comes to mounting. The single light package includes a GoPro finger mount so it can easily be used within the GoPro mount ecosystem. The litraTorch also has a built-in magnet in the back allowing you to attach the light to any metal surface. Located on the back and on the bottom are two 1/4 tripod mounts for even more versatility. Now if that wasn’t enough they even include a detachable clip allowing you to mount the unit on a belt buckle or similar item.

Like most lights that are capable of producing high lumen outputs, they can get quite hot. Litra has included a silicon housing sleeve to make the unit more comfortable to handle when using it at the highest setting for long periods of time. A silicon diffuser is also included in the box which when mounted on the light helps soften and diffuse the beam.

Battery Life Of the LitraTorch

The battery life of the litraTorch is very impressive and are as follows:

  • Brightest (800 Lumen) 35 Minutes
  • Medium (450 Lumen) 70 Minutes
  • Lowest (100 Lumen) 4 Hours

The Litra Torch can be purchased as a single light or as a dual light package with various accessories depending on how you will be using it. They offer GoPro triple and double mounts, handles and even a smart phone mount. All in all it is a good solid light and a good solid purchase if you are in the market for a super bright mini light for your GoPro camera bag.

Best Memory Card for the new GoPro Hero 2018

There are many types and sizes of memory cards on the market that will work with the new GoPro Hero 2018 but to keep things simple I recommend the Lexar 633x it is a great memory card at a decent price and I have always had good luck with them.  You can choose how much storage you would like the most common is 32 GB or 64 GB. This determines how many photos and videos can be stored on the camera.

Must Have $10 Upgrade For Your GoPro

Published

on

If you own a GoPro this is a very inexpensive must have upgrade that everyone needs. One annoyance that I have had with my GoPro is having to remove it from the frame every time I want to charge it or plug in a microphone. With this 3rd party GoPro frame you can open and remove the charging door on your GoPro without having to remove it from the frame, saving a lot of time and aggravation. This frame also seems to be a better build quality than the stock frames, it has a nice rubberized coating. This is such a simple little fix, I wonder why GoPro has not implemented it yet on their official frames. Because they all have the same form factor this 3rd party frame is compatible with the Hero 5 Black, Hero 6 Black and the new GoPro Hero (2018).
