Hensel continues to employ the attributes of Lithium-ion technology with the introduction of the Power Max L Lithium Mobile Power Supply. Unlike a traditional power pack, this pure sine wave inverter provides 120VAC power from its twin outlets to Integra Mini, Mini Plus, Expert D, Speed Max and other compatible monolights rated up to 2,000W/s. It will also power Hensel's C Light, as well as other brands of continuous sources and devices such as wind machines with up to 500W electrical draw.
Recycling times are roughly 50% longer than that of a flash plugged into an AC outlet. The Expert D 500 for example that normally recycles in 0.8 sec would recycle in a still fast 1.2 sec. The Power Max L runs on same Lithium-ion battery as the Porty L system, recharging from depletion in 2 hours in or out of the unit. The typical number of full power flashes from monolights is 880 @ 250W/s, 440 @ 500W/s 220 @ 1,000W/s, etc.
The Power Max L ships with 1 battery in the unit. Separate purchase of the quick charger (BH# HEQCPL) is required for use. An optional all-inclusive kit with cases and strap is available.
