About Flashpoint PS-800

• The Flashpoint Powerstation 800 converts stored lithium energy into pure sine wave 120V AC power for studio flash peak demand and constant draw appliances in the field or wherever you can't plug in. It's power to go for the photographer on the go.

• This is the ultimate answer for using your monobloc studio flash packs that require stable 120AC current in any environment (except underwater, thank you).The fan cooled Powerstation 800 will allow you to plug in 3 units with flexible dual switchable modes; one for traditional high peak strobe generators up to 3000ws with the ability to deliver 500 flashes from a 500ws head, and the other supports constant flow for laptops, chargers and low power appliances. In addition, there are 3 USB ports to charge devices like iPads, iPhones and iPods.

• Inverters convert the battery's DC (direct current) into an AC (alternating current) for use with devices that need 110V like we get from household outlets.While there are varieties of output, photo lighting demands pure sine wave, not square wave or modified input. Using less will compromise the electronics and deteriorate monobloc and power packs. Our superior designed Powerstation offers great compatibility with a wide range of high draw flashes, even at 3000ws.

• The sturdy, compact and portable main pack weights just 10 pounds. The 4.85 pound interchangeable 12,000m Ah Lithium Ion Phosphate battery module is also available separately as an additional qui ck solution for smooth swap when supply is running low. You can recharge a battery module with the AC adapter charger is just 3 hours and you can even run the Powerstation 800 from your car's 12V accessory outlet.

• Bring the power of a super charged Lithium battery to provide AC current to any photo location with Powerstation 800.

this is a great buy i can use studio lights anywhere now only bad thing i can see is if you have 2 or more battery's you need to put them in a safe place so the locking clips do not brake off the battery

PS-800 has power to spare.

By

from Lodi, CA

Great product. I purchased the PS-800 for my studio a little over a month ago. I have used it on two shoots so far. Both shoots were outside in full mid day California sun. I was using one Elinchrome BX 500 Ri on each shoot as my key light. On the first shoot I used a 42" bounce umbrella. On the second I used a 28" beauty dish. In both cases we were shooting at full power (500 watt seconds) to 3/4 power. On both shoots we were shooting simultaneously with two cameras. The PS-800 had no trouble keeping up. On the first shoot we shot over 630 with flash. On the second we shot about 460. In both cases, at the end of the shoot, the unit was still firing off with no delay or drop in power. I purchased the kit, which includes a second battery, but I haven't had to pull it out yet. The unit is relatively light and easy to carry around and maneuver but very sturdy as well. Recharge time is about an hour or two. Not really sure as I didn't time it but I was surprised with how quickly it recharged. All in all, I really like this product. I look forward to putting it through it's paces with multiple lights on an upcoming shoot.

Questions about this item:

Pete S  Estimated hours for plugging in one small appliance, say a "mini" computer like a Mac Mini? And, I only see a pic of one 110V outlet, and it's not standard. Are there a few standard 110VAC outlets, along with the USB and other ones?
Andrew R  This unit designed for use with AC powered strobe lights. Other uses are not specified.
Evan L  Hi can this run a profoto pro 5 1200 generator, or even a pro 7 2400 generator? can it be plugged into a car battery for longer use?
Andrew R  This unit is really designed to be used with monolights or similar lighting units. Use of larger strobes with separate power packs (Such as the 1200 or 2400 units) will likely exceed the output capabilities of this device. Recharging requires 110VAC/60HZ power, a car battery will not likely work with this unit.
Evan L  Hi I know the profoto 1200 and 2400 both have a 10 amp slow recycle setting. so perhaps that setting would work? thats 120x10 or 1200 watts or 1100 if its at 100 volts. this unit mentions it supports peak watts of upto 1400 watts so i was wondering if the profoto set to max out at around 1200 watts is considered normal or peak watts for this unit.
Roy B  What sort of batteries does it use??
