        Comments about Profoto Flashtube for D1 Monolight - 1000Ws Maximum:

        I use this flashtube in Profoto D1 Air 500 monolight. The replacement mechanics can be intimidating since the small wires at the top of the tube must be wrapped around a small protruding wire. This was my first time to replace the flashtube in the D1. Study the old flash tube before proceeding with replacement. Profoto flashtubes are expensive but B&H has the lowest price!

            Comments about Profoto Flashtube for D1 Monolight - 1000Ws Maximum:

            In case it's not clear, this tube works with BOTH the D1 500 and the D1 1000w/s monolights. Which is kinda useful if you have a mixture of 500/1000's like I do. Keeping a spare around makes a lot of sense. (But note: the D1 250w/s head uses a different flashtube, found elsewhere on B&H.)

            I just replaced a D1 flashtube for the first time. I'm good with tools, but the process was slightly nerve wracking. That little ring at 12 o'clock (top-center) on the tube is made of a stiff metal foil. So removing a damaged tube means first unwrapping that foil from the metal igniter wire that protrudes from the D1. It's little and fussy. I used a very small flat screwdriver to peel it off. Then, after plugging a new tube in place, used a pair of small round jeweler's pliers to carefully wrap the new foil around the igniter wire for good contact. Common needle nose pliers should work too.

            If you're good with minor mechanical surgeries like this, it's not too bad. Take your time.. and wear nitrile or latex rubber gloves to keep the tube clean.

            It fired right up afterward, and metered spot-on. Profoto delivers!
