Last Friday I picked up Apurture Amaran AL-528W to record video podcasts at home. The light has 528 LEDs which you can control with the dial at the back to regulate its power from 10% to 99%. The light remains cool throughout as you would expect from LED light. Its also very light and so you can easily carry it to location in a very handy carry case that it comes in.

The light can be powered using mains or Sony Batteries if you are going to be outdoors without power outlet. They also provide a mounting bracket and warm diffusion filter.

I loved the lightweight and simple solution, will definitely look at adding a second to my studio soon. Check out the video below where I record the unboxing and preview of this light.
