Portable Power - Glanz LP-750 Battery Pack

Users of mains-powered equipment have often been jealous of their counterparts who use smaller portable systems; the photographer who would dearly love to use their studio monoblock in the field but cannot come to a power point – the operator of a computer who wants to use a separate monitor for colour control on the beach. Now they need be jealous no longer.

 

Glanz have introduced the LP 750 Leadpower battery/inverter for just these people. It is contained in a sturdy case with carry handle that provides three universal 240V AC sockets on top under weatherproof covers. There is a removable Ni Mh battery in the side and an on-board cooling fan to clear the case. Of course it has a rack of fuses to prevent inadvertencies.

The battery will charge up in 6 hours from dead flat and can then provide the full 750 watts and 3 amps – we tested it in our workshop and were able to fire 250 shots one after another through a Bowens 500w/s head – that’s a lot of flash power. And it has a fast recycle time.

If it is steady power you need rather than flash peaks there is a switch on the side for this. The discharge rate will be slower but there is a standby option that will prevent any charge leak over a long period.

If you need more power in this pack, just buy a spare battery - it can be changed instantly by sliding up a sealed panel and pulling out the exhausted one – but remember that 250 full shots is a lot of flash power.

Expensive? No - $ 799. Now your studio lights can follow you out into the wide world. Another burden to load onto the photo assistant....
