Whew- This thing rocks. "No Cords"


from Mississippi  -  Pro Photographer

Using speedlights is fine. I use them more than any other light source, but with this pac, I had my assistant carry 1 of my strobes with softbox attached to get lighting I could not achieve with speedlight. I shot for several hours and only dropped 2 bars... Im estimating that's about 35% used leaving 65% for the reception that was outside at night.......

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Can you buy an extra battery for this unit?
DAVID L  Yes. You can. The unit is designed to conveniently swap batteries.
Vickie R  Can this be used with Alien Bee 800?
MARVIN F  Yes it can be use with most any studio light.
ted a  Can I power as small profoto acute with this pack?
DAVID L  Can it and will it can be two very different things. Caveat - Maybe I have a bad pack. Don't know. I have tried to power a PL2500DR which is a single 1000ws moonlight, and I am supposed to get 300 or so flashes at full power... I have trouble recycling at 1/3rd power where I can here the light struggle to recycle. I have been able to power a PL1250DR which is a 500 watt and generally once I start to push it to full power it struggles sometimes. I have also tried using this to power Dynalite packs, from the M1000wi, M500wi and even a M500XL. M1000wi I was afraid after one shot that I would damage the pack, the M500wi and M500XL were moderately acceptable, but still am afraid of using this in the field. Maybe I got a bad pack - sent an inquiry into Photogenic. Only reason I have kept it as I can generally use it with a single PL1250DR, but that is still a lot of money to spend for 500ws at full power. Given the price of the PL1250DR and the price of the pack, I would more out of a bunch of Yongnuo speedlites, as well as have about the same or fast recycle time, and more reliability I imagine. I have been waiting to find a good price on an XP1100 or something similar. This I find is a glorified cellphone / USB charger. I bought this because the Photogenics are digital, I know the power draw is different because of the digitals, and when I tested the Paul C Buff, I know the brownouts / drop offs were not good. I though this would be better, my solution, but it has been a paperweight and only used on 1 shoot with any success outdoors. I don't trust this with anything more than a PL1250DR, so a single up to 500 watts you may be o.k. After that? How good is your relation with the Profoto Service Department?
