The optional LED kit upgrade makes the panels glow. The LED kit is powered by a rechargeable cordless battery system with an 8-hour charge cycle. If you need to light up the podium for longer than 8 hours, it can be plugged directly into an electrical outlet. The LED kit also comes with a remote operated controller which has multiple speed, brightness, and color settings. The included 8 colors options are: cyan, purple, white, orange, yellow, green, blue, and red.
