Share with friends

I know some of you are wondering why in the world I chose this title. It seems like the most appropriate title for these potent LED lights. In 2023, the Godox Knowledge MG2400BI, Nanlux Evoke 2400B, and Aputure Electro Storm XT26 were all revealed. All of them are high-output LED fixtures, and because of the extraordinary qualities they offer, I have chosen to refer to them as game changers. It’s fair to say, in my opinion, that there is healthy competition among the three lighting brands: Aputure, Godox, and Nanlux. When Nanlux made their initial statement regarding the Evoke 2400B in 2023, I was blown away. The Aputure Electro Storms and Godox Knowled MG2400Bi then appeared considerably later. Let us take a look at them.


The first ‘big boy’ on our list is Aputure’s Electro Storm XT26. With dynamic white CCT and tint adjustment, the Electro Storm XT26 is a 2600W high-output point-source LED fixture. Its professional connecting technique, dual accessory mount, and G/M tint control are all part of its professional design. Additionally, it features an IP65 dust- and water-resistant construction along with cutting-edge liquid cooling technology.

The Knowled MG2400Bi from Godox is the second ‘big boy’ on the list. Modern COB technology and an amazing 2900W input power are introduced. It accomplishes an amazing consistent output of 2600W in all color temperatures, which is impressive. Users will value a professional control system with DMX, CRMX, and Ethernet capabilities even though they can make adjustments onboard. Godox’s brightest fixture, the MG2400Bi, provides a dependable user experience both indoors and outdoors. The lamp is guaranteed to survive rainy weather thanks to its IP54 rating
