Hensel continues to employ the attributes of Lithium-ion technology with the introduction of the Power Max L Lithium Mobile Power Supply Kit. 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 at 120VAC.
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 to full or 90 minutes to 80%, 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 Kit ships with 1 battery in the unit, a spare battery, quick charger, shoulder strap and nylon cases for the Power Max and batteries.
