Good Value for Monolights
I have been hesitant to try these portable battery powered monolight units. I saw the Adorama video with Mark Wallace. It was a quick overview on the 650M system. I purchased the 320M with battery pack because it appeared easy to use. I purchase this setup for remote and location shoots. I have several coming up and look forward to getting value out of these recommended lights and battery. So far out of the box everything seems to be working. Not happy that the modeling light does not work onView full Review
I have been hesitant to try these portable battery powered monolight units. I saw the Adorama video with Mark Wallace. It was a quick overview on the 650M system. I purchased the 320M with battery pack because it appeared easy to use. I purchase this setup for remote and location shoots. I have several coming up and look forward to getting value out of these recommended lights and battery. So far out of the box everything seems to be working. Not happy that the modeling light does not work on AC battery power. Also I am not sure how many shots I can take with this 150WS unit. I am assuming its twice as much as the 620M. Again, easy to setup, all the parts were there[...] I will add comments next week when I use them for a remote corporate staff portrait session. Adorama seems to have a lot of options when it comes to pro lighting. In the studio i use Hensel lighting, but I thought for this price I can gamble and see what happens. I have seen complaints about poor quality of the lights and the battery pack. Some battery packs not fully charging, or not turning on at all. Crossing my fingers here...If these last 6 months, I will be a happy photographer, if they last longer, I will recommend them to all of my photography students, who are always looking for less expensive startup equipment. NOT SURE YET ABOUT RECOMMEND TO A FRIEND. SO I WILL SAY YES BASED ON THE INITIAL EXPERIENCE. See you in a few weeks with an update review.AF

I had a heck of a time when I first ordered this power pack. The shipping was lighting fast, as always but it was delivered w/o a battery. Called customer service and they informed me that a batch that the recieved was missing the batteries. Adorama could not do anything for me at the time because they none was in the warehouse. A few days later, a battery shipped and had it the next day. So glad I waited. Now I can use my Flashpoint 630M on location! Great Product!
It is an useful item, easy to manage and carry. When I received it, I charged and do my first sesion with it and last at least 300 shoots and never got down. I'm new with it, but I'm happy to get it.
I used it to power my 620 monolight when I shoot outdoors. Fast recycle and power will last long enough to fire at least 100 flashes at full power. I've only used it only once with about 100 shots and I still have plenty of power left.
Small package great performance. It has all the features that you need in a small package light weight. I would highly recommend
I am thrilled with this power pack. No cords and as a plus it adds a bit of weight and stability to my stand. Out of the box I charged it for 4hrs 15min. before the light turned green. I have shot 250plus shots at one fourth to three fourths power and still going. No modeling light but I'm over that. Not very important to me. I can have more versatility using my beauty dish and go around tables taking pics instead of using on camera flash. Very practical. Will definitely put on my budget to get a second one. I have used it with a 150 ws flashpoint moonlight. Great product. Excellent price!
very good battery pack takes a little long to charge but good value for the money
Bought a kit with two 9.5' lighstands, two Flashpoint II 620M monolights, a Flashpoint II DC battery power pack, a snoot, two umbrellas, a softbox, a lighting outfit case, and a lighting guide. Very happy. Came with all the cables. Everything is compatible. Easy to operate, and lots of fun! Don't hesitate. For the price, these tools are fabulous. You can't go wrong. Shot my first portrait within 6 hours of receipt!
For on location shooting, this is an amazing addition for the lights, however a very steep downfall is the limited ability you have to shoot with the battery. On full power you only get about 100 shots. I had to purchase a 2nd battery for all the units I have which is costly and that still has me limited if there is no power supply available. So the only down fall is the limited amount of flashes you can get per battery pack. The one other down fall is there is know way of being able to tell how much power you have left in the unit. You can not tell if your at half power or when you are reaching close to your changing point. The carries which come with the packs are very portable and makes carrying them very nice with added flexibility.
I've used this battery pack together with my Flashpoint DG-600 300 w/s monolight. Overall, I'm happy with the purchase - it lasted throughout most of the concert with power setting set to about 1/4 of full power. Recharge times were good (~1 second or less between each shot). I also like the fact that battery itself is easily removed and has its own connector to charge up independently from the pack (while one is recharging - another goes in). Power connector is secure enough to stay in place. Cons is that there is no indicator on how much juice is left on the battery. The on/off flip can be easily switched by an accident (I actually did switch it to "on" position by accident when I was putting it into the trunk). Bag that it comes with is nice, but needs improvement. Battery pack very easy slips out of the bag - that can be dangerous during handling. It would be nice to be able to put extra cable length inside the bag (i.e. when I'm hanging the pack off the light stand and don't need the slack to be dangling around). Right now the space between the top cover and the one that zips up is not enough.
I wouldn't have minded this even though the battery seemed short as I felt it was good value for me as an entry level battery to go with the simple light package I purchased and if I really needed something to last longer it would be affordable to buy 2. After a few foul experiences with a couple of the salesmen I decided to return this. This is a bit sad as there are some very helpful salesmen in the store.
