The Photogenic ION Lithium-ion Pure Sine Wave Inverter System with Spare Battery and Case provides you the luxury to take your studio strobes on the field without electricity and without noisy generators or bulky old-style inverters. It is capable to deliver hundreds or even thousands of full power flashes depending on the flash head in use. Photogenic's 1,000W/s PL1000DR gets 300 full power flashes on a fully charged battery while their AKC160 will get a whopping 2,050 flashes from the same battery however, Photogenic doubles that capacity by including a spare battery but you can triple or quadruple your capacity by simply purchasing extra batteries which can be charged apart from the inverter. Extra chargers are available to charge more than 1 battery concurrently.

Clare A. from Prairieville, LA:
I have been looking for a small portable battery for doing shoots on location for a long time. There were plenty to choose from but I didn't want to have to lug around some big bulky unit that required a generator! This ION Lithium-ion Pure Sine Wave Inverter System with Spare Battery and Case is amazing. I purchased an extra battery in case I need to switch out the battery while I'm in the middle of a forest and no place to recharge one battery...I like to always have backups for everything, i.e., cameras, light meters, strobes, etc....but I'm being told that I probably will never need to use the back up battery because I will be able to get so many flashes on the one battery that I will exhaust my creativity before the battery runs out! I have not put it to the true test yet of being on a location shoot, but I've used it in my studio already and had two strobes plugged into the one battery and the recycling rate blew my mind for both strobes. It's so small...only 3.5 lbs....and it can fit in my one case. I feel so mobile now! I can feel confident that I can take my show on the road and not have to be concerned about my equipment not being able to handle my needs. So far, I'm very happy.
