Handy tool to have

This is a handy power pack for Flashpoint model II monolights. It charges quickly, has a replaceable battery cell and a nice canvas bag with a strap to hold it. It allows for quick recycle times and you can work with your monolight anywhere. In short, it does the job of providing power to a monolight to be used remotely where there is no power available.One thing that annoys me however is the fact that the modeling lights do not work when in DC power. I understand that this would drain the power quickly but that should be my choice. The FLashpoint monolights have a switch to turn off the modeling light. I would just like to be able to turn it on for a few seconds to check things if needed. Another quirk is the proprietary cord. I'm sure there is a design reason but I don't quite understand why they can't be designed to just utilize the regular plug like the vagabond.Still, for [$] you can't go wrong with this. It has been useful and has paid for itself many times over.

I LOVE my battery pack!

I was happy to incorporate this product into my arsenal. Now I can shoot anywhere I choose WITH a strobe. It's pretty nice. I got this battery to help me shoot large groups at weddings with no AC plugs needed. I also use it for outdoor portraits sometimes of individuals...and families.

I can just pop up my light on a stand.....turn on the pack and fire away. When light power and speed is needed (a must at weddings), this pack is a champ. I just shot a wedding group of 30 people outdoors using this pack and 1 Flashpoint 320.

Recycle time is fast enough and I have never drained the pack at an event yet!

Lightweight, powerful and easy to use!

This battery unit is superb with the matching Flashpoint monolight! It is VERY lightweight and packs a punch to boot! I have used this battery on a shoot that lasted 3-4 hours and probably took 200-250 shots with this battery and it never showed any sign of wearing down! (your mileage may differ dependent on light settings/output)

But I'm very happy with this setup as it relives me of carrying around an 18 lb battery (Yikes)!

Cons: There is no easy way to secure the battery to the light stand..which is nice to have since otherwise it is on the ground which is not always ideal when shooting outdoors!

opened up a new world

This battery park opened up a whole new world for my in portrait work. I would much rather shoot outside now instead of a home studio. The battery pack gives me the ability to shoot ANYWHERE. it actually helps with the stability of my light stand in weighing it down. The battery park is not that heavy and came with a real nice case to carry it in. I could not be happier with this pack.

Light & Powerfull DC Power Supply

I bought this to go with the Flashpoint II 620M and it works great.

Location shoots, family, wedding, senior shots, it's pretty handy to have around.

It and the light are a great buy for the price. There are better lights and DC systems out there and they all cost several time more.

I won't cry so much should this outfit get caught in the rain or fall off the truck.

This battery pack works great!

I really like this battery pack. It is light weight and great for outdoor shooting. I would say that the only draw back is the recycle time. If you are photographing a subject that requires you to be quick on the draw this pack is not for you.

Works Great!

I bought this power pack for my Flashpoint 620M monolight. It works just as described. I wish the modeling light would work with it like it does with AC power, but it is a decent trade off for the price.

Really good !!

I really love this product, long lasting and also cheap, if U have to use constatly I recoment to buy a extra baterry ... each baterry is enough for one session but you never know when u will need it.

Compact Power Pack worth every cent.

It says it will recharge your Flashpoint II 320M, 150 Watt Second 200 times, but for me is even more. Maybe 240 times at full power.

Good idea to buy an additional battery.

great batter for monolight

Great battery pack for M series monolights. Hard to beat it. Gets over 200 shots. I wish it had some sort of digital battery gauge but that is probable asking too much at this price.

MISSING PARTS

Had so many problems with this. I got it as a gift. I unpacked it and it was wonderful, exactly what I wanted until I discovered that the cable that is supposed to go from the M Monolights to the battery pack was missing.

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 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
