Hensel Porty 1200 Watt/Second Battery Operated Power Pack with Sync Cord and Battery - Requires 5670 Charger

B&H # HEP1200 Mfr # 495
No Longer Available

The Hensel Porty 1200 Battery and AC power supply with 1200 J maximum power output and symmetrical power distribution. Batteries can be exchanged within seconds with the newly developed battery drawer with quick release and handle for easy pull out. There is also an AC adapter which slides in and can be removed simply and quickly.

Power output is adjustable over a six f-stop range in 1/10th of f-stop increments, easily changeable by simply tapping or holding down the arrow buttons. The Porty features automatic power dumping for power reduction without triggering the unit. Batteries can be recharged with the multi-voltage quick charger within 2 hours. One full battery charge is good for 100 flashes at the full 1200 Watt/second output. All connections, as well as the top of the unit where controls are located, is sealed against dirt and water, making the Porty an ideal choice on a rainy day photo shoot.

Note: When purchased on its own, the Porty 1200 does not include the 5670 charger. It must be purchased separately.
