        Comments about Elinchrom Ranger RX to Skyport RX Adapter:

        I'm placing my order for my third one of these things, they last about a year for me (seeing weekend use as a wedding photographer). The only way to connect the SkyPort transmitter to the Ranger RX Speed AS pack so it's a necessary evil for wireless. After a while the connection just starts getting unreliable unless I wiggle this adapter in juuuust the right spot, so that's when I know it's time for a new one. Wish Elinchrom made a better product that locked in place (like when using the cord) but it is what it is.

          Unreliable

              Comments about Elinchrom Ranger RX to Skyport RX Adapter:

              I had two of these, purchased new and attempted using them on two (purchased new) Ranger RX AS Speed packs. These do not lock into the port on the pack tight enough for even minute movement of the pack and the power to the radio transmitter kept cutting out and thus became so unreliable they had to be removed and I had to use the pack on optical slave mode. This design could be drastically improved with only minimal thought on the part of Elinchrom- design a version that screws into and locks into the port on the power pack!!!

              Comments about Elinchrom Ranger RX to Skyport RX Adapter:

              I purchased this adapter to replace the defective one that came in the Ranger kit. This new one works fine, but it doesn't lock down, it's wobbly, and when the PocketWizard ST4 is on it, it's not exactly solid. I would not advise moving or carrying the Ranger battery pack with the Adapter/Receiver attached.
              Not only do you need it to use the Pocketwizrd ST4, but for the Elinchrom Skyports as well.
              I recommend it because it's the only game in town

                Comments about Elinchrom Ranger RX to Skyport RX Adapter:

                Great Adapter, you have to have it for the Pocket Wizard ST4 to connect to an Elinchrom Ranger Pack. It is great and works for indoor use but I would suggest getting the appropriate cord to raise the ST4 higher off the ground to achieve better range and consistency if used for outside on-location shoots.
