The Speedotron Explorer 1500 Digital Portable Power Supply (220V) is a battery power pack utilizing many of the best elements of the Speedotron Black line of strobe products. It is a cost-effective solution to gas-powered generators, where AC power for strobes is not available.
The Explorer provides up to 225 full power flashes to a single 103 Black Line Series flash head with color-corrected flashtube (not included). It has 2 head outlets, and power may be divided asymmetrically. Recycle time is 3.5 seconds @ full power.
This version of the Explorer can be used as a battery pack (drawing its power from the unit's battery) or as an AC pack (drawing its power from the wall source). When used in battery mode, either 120V or 220V modeling lamps may be used in the flash head. When used as an AC unit, only 220V modeling lamps and heads can be used.
The Explorer 1500 comes with the power pack, battery, AC/charging cable and a sync cord.
Note: When powered from AC, only 220V modeling lamps and heads may be used.
