Elgato has been a leading developer of hardware and software for content creators since its launch in 1992. I’ve used their Key Light and Key Light Air for my streaming and YouTube videos for a few years now, but have been looking for something bit more portable. Today, Elgato has announced the Key Light Mini, a fully portable edge-lit LED panel created using the same award-winning technology found in the previously mentioned lighting products. The Key Light Mini features multi-layer diffusion, a fast-charging battery, and a small form factor measuring in at 6-in x 4-in.

“Key Light Mini takes premium, edge-lit illumination beyond the desktop. Elgato’s lighting technology is renowned for superior quality and powerful performance. Now, creators can take that technology wherever they go, without needing an extension cable or external battery. It’s an incredibly versatile lighting solution that works flawlessly from the studio to the street.”

Compact and durable, Key Light Mini sports a metal chassis with premium OSRAM LEDs powered by a fast-charging, intelligent battery offering up to 2 hours runtime at 100% brightness, or 4 hours at 50% brightness, on a single charge. When plugged into a wall outlet in your studio, Bypass Mode can be activated to preserve long-term battery health. Key Light Mini shines bright at 800 lumens and is fully dimmable, while a color temperature range of 2,900-7,000K enables creators to dial in the perfect look both indoors and outdoors. Light settings can be adjusted via onboard controls or wirelessly when connected to a Wi-Fi network using the Elgato Control Center app on iPhone, Android, Mac, or PC. In the studio, direct Elgato Stream Deck integration offers instant, one-touch control of brightness and color.
