Pretty Much A Necessity

By Eddie

from NC

Comments about Westcott Ice Light Power Pack Battery:

There's nothing too complicated about this - it does exactly what it says it does. The biggest issue is the flimsy connector cable which connects the battery to the light. Nothing holds it on and there is a real risk of losing it during a frantic shoot.

      Easy and simple. Highly recommend this since the battery life of the Ice Light is one of the few drawbacks.

            I have only used this 2 times in the month I have owned it, but it is comforting to know I have extra battery power in my bag. It screws on nicely, and does what it says it will do. Overall very happy with it.

                Comments about Westcott Ice Light Power Pack Battery:

                We bought this product to help extend the battery life of our Ice Light. We ended up sending the first battery pack back to B&H due to a flimsy connection where the battery pack connects to the Ice Light. The second one we received a week later is doing the exact same thing. It seems as if the construction is poor and the battery will not screw into the end of the Ice Light far enough to secure it from wobbling. I understand the battery pack is not a handle, but it is constructed to the point where you need one hand on the battery pack and one hand on the Ice Light to prevent the two from accidentally becoming separated. Maybe we just got two badly constructed packs, but I highly suggest to save your money and not spend it on this battery pack!
