B&H was fast and I got my Profoto battery charger just in time. Thank you B&H
Lights let you know when it's charged and ready to go
breaks all the timeq
i have two of these. one broke and i sent it in for repair to profoto. they replaced it and now the second one broke. same issue. i have them sitting on a table and do not use them for travel etc. total joke for the price.
Follow up review - Can be easily fixed
As posted before I have had 2 of these both fail. I finally got around to opening them up and see they both had the same failure point. The good news is that both were fixed with no need for parts. A solder point on the mains in had blown in both which was simply fixed with a soldering iron and a small amount of solder. To open up simply unplug from mains while plugged into a battery to drain any residual power from capacitors for safety. Lift the 2 rubber feet at the bottom of the charger towards the mains in end. Unscrew two screws and then using a little force and maybe a small flathead screw driver you can open it up. If you have the same issue I had with both you will see one of the main solder points for power is blown.
2nd charger to die from electrical fault
I've now had both of my Profoto 2,8 Amp chargers die. Fo the price they are not up t scratch. I still have broncolor gear from decades ago going strong. Profoto make good gear, but here is a serious reliability issue.
Chargers fail and eventually stop charging. Ive had to purchase two of these to replace my original chargers. Seems like they only last a year or so. Ridiculous.
Works as expected
I only gave it four stars because my old one broke without getting bumped around. Lke several other people have mentioned this is not a really durable item. It got to the point where I had to hit the old one hard on the side to get the old one to charge. Figured it was a loose connection. Profoto makes great strobes but their accessories, like the hot shoe flash remote can be pretty flimsy
Small enough to fit in a portable lighting kit
This charger works as advertised, and is small enough to fit in a portable lighting kit. Since Profoto's two-light B-1X travel kit only included one charger, this additional one is a must for the ability to charge two batteries at once.
