The SP Systems AC/DC-920 is built on the same principle as the SP-920, but it adds the option of using battery power when an AC outlet is unavailable or inconvenient.

The AC/DC920 has Click-Stop Variable power output settings at full, half and quarter power.

It utilizes the same accessories as the SP-100 and SP-147.

The AC/DC-920 includes removable AC and DC power cords.

The suggested battery source for the AC/DC-920 is the optional Quantum Turbo Battery. With the Quantum Turbo battery on a full charge, the AC/DC-920 will provide an average of 450 full-power flashes.

        Comments about SP Studio Systems AC/DC-920 Flash:

        I bought this strobe specifially to use with the SP Background Image Projector, which is designed for it. I was worried that 100 WS would be too weak (I use 500 WS strobes for the main and fill lights), but I was wrong! Check out the samples I attached.
        I thought this was going to be a cheaply made strobe, considering its price, but I was wrong about that, too!
        And it's not just a good background light, its size and light weight make it perfect to put on a boom and use as a hairlight.
        And another feature worth mentioning is that it can be powered by a Quantum battery, making it ideal for location work such as weddings.
        Make sure you get the multibracket for this, it doesn't come with a way to attach it to a light stand.

        Comments about SP Studio Systems AC/DC-920 Flash:

        Get it and get it now!....before SP figures out how much this thing is really worth!!

        For starters...incredibly portable...bring it anywhere you can fit a light stand. The AC/DC feature only enhances it's capability. Power it with a Turbo, Lumedyne cycler or SP's own power pack (another beast!)

        It's only 100 WS but if all you need is some fill light it's great!! I just used it with a shoot through white umbrella outdoors and the single light portraits were fantastic!! Again only 100WS so you can't overpower the sun with it while using light modifiyers. Use a 24X24 softbox... shoot thru an umbrella...just keep it close to the subject in either case.

        The optional mounting bracker really isn't an option at all.....YOU GOTTA HAVE IT!! The barndoors too....great for adding an accent light for subject's hair, shoulders, etc!!

        This is a must have, considering the price.

              I use this as a backlight/hairlight/fillight in a 3 light setup along with 2 other ac/dc/320 strobes. Works great!
