The Photogenic ION Lithium-ion Pure Sine Wave Inverter System with Spare Battery allows you to take your studio strobes on the road or off the road without electricity and without noisy generators or bulky old-style inverters. Weighing in at only 3.5 lb including its battery, the ION measures only 7.5 x 4.4 x 3.3" but is able to deliver hundreds or even thousands of full power flashes depending on the flash head in use. For example, 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. 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.

Convenience features include a USB port to power computers and other electronic devices and an LED "fuel gauge" that allows you to check on remaining power at a glance. The system includes the ION Inverter, battery, charger, light stand clamp and strap. A specially designed case is also included that can hold a complete ION Inverter Kit plus 2 spare batteries.

Note: flash capacity specs are based on Photogenic flash heads but other brands of flash heads may be used with the inverter. Power input is 100 to 265VAC, 50/60Hz but output is 120V only.

Comments about Photogenic ION Lithium-ion Pure Sine Wave Inverter System with Spare Battery and Case:

This is an awesome product and now I am free to use my strobes anywhere it is dry. I have taken over 150 flashes so far and the 14.8 volt battery is still showing over 15 volts on a volt meter. Very portable and easy to use. If you want the freedom to go on location with plenty of portable power this is the unit to buy.

Comments about Photogenic ION Lithium-ion Pure Sine Wave Inverter System with Spare Battery and Case:

I bought this item to shoot an outdoor wedding. I was able to use my studio flashes in a remote outdoor location with no electrical lines. I could attach the light weight battery pack to the flash stand which made the entire unit self-contained and easy to move.

Comments about Photogenic ION Lithium-ion Pure Sine Wave Inverter System with Spare Battery and Case:

I have been looking for compact transportable power and the Photogenic Ion hits the mark. It powers my Elinchrom 500 strobe. I purchased two ions for location photography.

    Comments about Photogenic ION Lithium-ion Pure Sine Wave Inverter System with Spare Battery and Case:

    I had my eye on this product since they introduced it and finally decided to buy it when I saw they had the kit with and extra battery, light stand mount and carry case.

    Very well designed and lightweight. I haven't used it on location yet but I intend to replace my Norman and Lumedyne battery units with the 3 AC Photogenic moonlights I also use. Better control of wattage and more light modifiers available.
