Brief Overview: The Ape Labs Can 2.0 is the most versatile of the Ape Labs fleet of lights for DJs, lighting designers, and mobile entertainers. This fully wireless, battery powered fixture can be used in so many more ways than just a traditional battery uplight. Available lens options include their signature V-Shaped Fresnel lens, a super wide-angle 45 degree par lens, a wide-angle 25 degree par lens, a standard 15 degree par lens, a tight-angle 10 degree par lens, and a super tight pin-spot style 3 degree beam adapter. They are great as dance lights when hung using their optional Swivel Ball Adapter. Other accessories include one to two meter long tubes, short table light adapters, wide angle dome adapters and more. Wether you need traditional or unique uplighting options, dancefloor lighting, or wedding lighting decor, the Ape Labs Can 2.0s is right for you.
The Ape Labs Can was one of the first inventions to come out of our German office. The size of a soda can and with a built-in battery that lasts over 11 hours on max brightness, this tiny but mighty LED fixture helped build our reputation for innovation and build quality that's second to none.
The Can 2.0 IP is the most versatile product we have ever made. With at least 2x the brightness of the previous generation Can and with even more available accessories, the possibilities are endless! Plus, the new AmberWhite LED technology allows color for reproduction that was never possible before. With 29 built-in color presets designed specifically for the event industry by industry professionals, the Can 2.0 allows the user to create incredible lighting designs with just the push of a button. Crafted in Germany with a careful balance of totally reengineered optics merged with the warmth of the AmberWhite LED technology, the Can 2.0 is an incredibly flexible fixture, excellent for uplighting, unique Fresnel effect uplighting, ambient lighting, dance floor lighting, stage lighting, design washes, table lighting, pin spotting, room washing, tube effects, and beyond.

Control / Operation:
Ape Labs is known to "Keep it Simple" when it comes to controlling lights. A beginner with no instructions can typically operate an Ape Labs fixture within seconds of picking up an ApeRemote or opening the app. But its simplicity does not lack in features. Two of the most famous features are "Grouping" and "MusikMode".
Grouping allows the user to create DMX-Like shows on the fly by grouping any number of mixed & matched Ape Labs SKUs into up to four groups. The user is then able to control groups individually or universally.
MusikMode will automatically create a music-based light show with the press of a button. It uses proprietary technology that analyzes the sound in the room and the total number of Ape Labs fixtures to build a constantly evolving light show. Just don't call it "Sound Active".

When comparing Ape Labs LUX values to competitor values, make sure to look at single color ratings. If only a single LUX value is given for a fixture, it's most likely an "All On" rating. This means that every color is combined when rating.
The Ape Labs Can 2.0 IP comes standard with a 65° effect lens, but four alternative optics are available. Below are the LUX ratings for each color, with each beam angle, at both 1m and 2m distances.
