The Quadra Living Light Kit with Lead Battery, S Head and Transmitter was put together by Elinchrom to offer on the go photographers a turnkey location lighting solution. The kit includes the 400Ws Quadra Hybrid RX Pack, a lead-gel battery, multi-voltage charger, 8.2' flash head cable, sync cable, and an ELS Transmitter Speed for remote triggering of the flash.

The Quadra Hybrid RX Pack with Lead-Gel Battery pack delivers an impressive 400Ws of power in a small package that weighs in at only 6.6 lb. while offering has portability, flexibility and professional convenience features you would expect from a company of Elinchrom's stature. The powerful pack can recycle in 0.41 to 2.26 seconds at 115V with full power flash durations as short as 1/3,000 sec. with the S (Standard) head and 1/5,700 with the A (Action) head. The Quadra Hybrid RX has a 6.6 stop power range that's variable in 1/10 stops and can distribute power in a fixed 2:1 asymmetrical ratio (66 - 33%) or 100% through one head.

The pack has a built-in ELS Skyport Receiver with 8 channels that can handle 4 distinct groups of flashes and not only allows you to trigger your pack at distances up to 393' but gives you control of power, on/off, modeling light functions and HyperSync activation. Free software for Mac and PC computers is available with the transmitter to add additional features a they become available. Add an optional USB Wi-Fi module for computer control and software that allows you to use specially designed apps that allow full remote control via your for iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch.

The full-functioning miniaturized S flash head which is ideally mated to the 400Ws Ranger Quadra Hybrid battery-powered pack. At only 0.6 lb and measuring only 5.9 x 3.3 x 3.1", the head not only packs well and is eminently portable, but is mountable in situations that would be impossible for a full-sized flash head.

The "S" designation for Standard, might look like the head is an under-performer as compared to its "A" counterpart, but on the contrary, the Standard is capable of very fast flash durations as short as 1/3,000 sec - perfectly adequate for nearly all applications. The Hybrid S Head does away with conventional halogen modeling lamps in favor of a low-draw LED lamp that produces the tungsten equivalent of 50W, and ships with a standard 5.3" umbrella reflector. Elinchrom also offers the EL-RQ adapter for those who want to use standard full-sized accessories and reflectors. The head comes with a removable 8.2' head cable. Optional 5.0' and 11.5' cables are available.

The Elinchrom Skyport SPEED Transmitter can control basic functions of Elinchrom units such as the BXRI 250/500, Ranger Quadra and D-Lite-it with their built-in ELS Receiver, and Elinchrom RX units to which a Transceiver RX (not included) is attached. The Skyport remote control system works at distances up to 196' (60m) indoors and up to 393' (120m) outdoors and syncs at up to 1/250 sec. It can control flashes in 4 selectable workgroups, and there are 8 frequency channels for interference-free operation.

    Awesome light with tons of output power

    I love this amazing and versatile kit. You can easily shoot in studio portraits and then go outside and capture some amazing dramatic portraits without carrying multi-flash head set ups. It has plenty of power to overpower back lit situations or complex lighting ratio set ups. Love it so much that I purchased two other kits. Highly recommend.

    Love this unit! Light Quality, design. I have Norman (an old brick type 2000D and a 200 ws) units and an Einstein 640. This model is strong enough for me and the 400 watt power is in the sweet spot for power on location. (Like the light weight head and quick changing battery box which is a hybrid.)

    Excellent System

    I bought this kit while it was on sale, and I think it is one of the best buys I have made. Set up is simple and it works right out of the box. This isn't as light as the quadra elb 400, it is about 2 pounds heavier but still very portable. The light quality is great and very consistent from low power to full power. At 1/3 the price of the ELB 400 kit, this is a very good buy. I have rarely use it at full power and have taken a couple hundred shots and still have about 1/2 charge on the battery so unless you really need the extra pops of the lithium battery models, I think this kit is a great buy even at list price.

    I had researched this unit for months till I decided to take the plunge and sell off my old Paul C. Buff system. With in 2 days of selling my old gear, this unit went on sale and I jumped on it very quickly, great deal for an amazing lighting system. Saved a lot too, thanks to B&H.

    The lead acid batteries are great, you would already have the charger. If you bought the lithium you would also need to buy the charger. One advantage of the lithium you can take as carry on while flying.

    question

    Several years ago I bought Ranger Quadra AS with S-head (ELEL 10292)and now I want to buy this light kit to use them simultaneously. But there is one thing that bothers me: flash duration of my kit in outlet A(100%) is 1/1300 and the flash duration in kit outlet A(100%) is 1/1200. Similar situation with flash duration in mode outlet B(100%) and outlet A+B(100%).So is it problem to use both simultaneously my old Ranger Quadra AS and new Ranger Quadra RX ?
    Asked by: Andrey V.
    Both should be 1/1200 at 100% according to the specs found in the Quadra AS and Quadra RX owner's manuals. The other flash duration specs match with the different power levels and A/B combinations, you it is OK to use the two of them together.

    question

    I just purchased this Elinchrom Quadra Living Light Kit with Lead Battery, S Head and Transmitter EL10430.1 . Now I want to buy a HS transmitter and looking at the chart it says not optimized for Hi Sync, does it mean it works higher than the 1/320 camera sync speed, such as 1/400, 1/600, etc but to 1/8000?
    Asked by: Ba M.
    Hi,The transmitter you need is the Transmitter Plus HS.https://<a href= http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/search?Ntt=Transmitter%20Plus%20HS&N=0&InitialSearch=yes&sts=ma&Top+Nav-Search= target= _blank >www.bhphotovideo.com/c/search?Ntt=Transmitter%20Plus%20HS&N=0&InitialSearch=yes&sts=ma&Top+Nav-Search=</a>The S head or Pro head will work for Hi-Sync. The HS head is optimized for higher shutter speeds upwards of 1/8000th of a second.http://elinchrom.ch/support/ELSP-HS.htmlI hope this helps.Regards,Will H.

    Hi,Yes it will work with PW's. Question? Why would you when you can take advantage of the Skyport built-in receiver. Two options. Use the transmitter that comes with the kit or if you want to get into Hi-Sync Imaging use the Skyport HS Plus Transmitter.Nikon and Canon dedicated units are available and in approximately 1.5 months the Sony unit will be available.<a href= http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/search?Ntt=Skyport+Plus&N=0&InitialSearch=yes&sts=ma&Top+Nav-Search= target= _blank >http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/search?Ntt=Skyport+Plus&N=0&InitialSearch=yes&sts=ma&Top+Nav-Search=</a>I hope this helps.Regards,Will HBrand Manager Lighting, MAC Group US

    If using a single head, will you get 400w/s or 266/w/s?
    Asked by: Scott
    Yes, if plugged into port A you get 100% output. When plugged into port B you will get 33% of that. When two heads are plugged in you get a 66/33 split.
