Out of curiosity, I purchased Anker iPhone LED Flash from Amazon.

This would be great to use when taking photos with iPhone; so I convinced myself. As many have said, the best camera you can use is the one you have with you. I generally use the iPhone as main camera because it is, well, with me almost all the time.

One thing I immediately noticed about this iPhone LED Flash is Lightning Charging Port and Tripod Mount. I meant Two, two things that I noticed about this are Lightning Charging Port, Tripod Mount and Lightning Connector. Ah, that’s three. ()

The iPhone LED Flash can also be sued used independently as a flashlight, thanks to its built-in 700mAh battery. That’s what the Lightning Charging Port is for, charging the battery. By the way, it seems that the LED Flash battery is also charging when connected the iPhone via the Lightning Cable. I’ll do more test to confirm this.

there are a lot of application to this LED Flash. Generally I do not use iPhone built-in Flash on regular basis, because I don’t like how the photo looks. I do use the flash when I’m photographing something in a controlled lighting environment.

Should I be able to control my desire to slack, I’d be posting some photos using this iPhone LED Flash in the future. That’s because I have not yet perfected the art of Time Travel.
