Impact LiteTrek 4.0 overview

  • 1Description

The Impact LiteTrek 4.0 DC Monolight and Mini LiteTrek (LT) Battery Pack Kit provides everything you'll need for portrait, fashion, sports or corporate photography in the field.

The LiteTrek 4.0 DC Flash Head has a 400W/s capacity, delivered in 1-2 seconds with very short flash durations. The head comes with an umbrella reflector, power and sync cords and a removable stand mount.

Power is provided by the included Impact LiteTrek (LT) Battery Pack which supplies the head with 650 maximum power flashes and 3500 minimum power pops. The battery stage is removable so you can purchase extra power potential without hauling the extra weight. Even better, the battery alone is less than 1/2 the price of the complete system. The Battery Pack comes with a multi-voltage charger. It all stows in the included sturdy 14.5 x 11 x 8.5" aluminum case. The LiteTrek 4.0 is compatible with Impact and Bowens bayonet-mount accessories when used with the optional, required reflector adapter. (Impact# 10052570)

Scott Kelby Testimonial, the World's #1 Bestselling Author of Photography Books
"Being able to use a small, lightweight, super-portable pack like this just makes things so much easier. Being able to have studio-quality lighting on location, without hauling loads of gear around makes a big difference for anybody who thinks "less is more". Used this rig last week for a dusk shoot, and it worked like a charm and refreshed much faster than I was expecting."
400W/s of Portable, Variable Power
  • Full to 1/64 Power, 6 - 400W/s
  • 2 Seconds to full recycling
  • 650 full power flashes - 3500 1/64 power
  • Quick Mode
    FP, for "focal plane," produces a succession of flashes at a very fast speed in order to illuminate the sensor as evenly as possible when shooting with fast shutter speeds (typically above 1/250s). This series of flashes is usually not noticeable with the naked eye. When using the FP settings, be aware that the flash will output at its lowest power setting to compensate for the fast burst speeds.
    Easy Packing
    Removable stand mount and power cord for easy packing.
    Multi Mode
    Multi Mode produces a series of continuous flashes for a single exposure. These pulses of light allow you to freeze several moments of progressive motion for creative or scientific effects. Create your own Edward Muybridge-style locomotion studies.
    Multiple Triggering Options
    Use the included sync cord, optical slave or Impact or other brand radio slave.
    Compatible with Impact and Bowens Accessories
    The LiteTrek 4.0 is compatible with Impact and Bowens bayonet-mount accessories when used with the optional Impact reflector adapter (not included). (Impact # 10052570)

    Impact LiteTrek 4.0 reviews

    LiteTrek 4.0 DC Monolight and Mini LiteTrek (LT) Battery Pack Kit is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 54.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is my second one purchased After using my first one I got a month ago I had to buy another. This is a really great portable light source. It easy to use, battery power seems to last forever and works great with an umbrella and my Photoflex softboxes. I side note, to use with Photoflex soft boxes, just purchase the Photoflex comet speed ring. BH part #PHSR900CC3. This is far better than the SB900, that keeps overheating and broke the first month. Yes, a speedlight is more potable, but I use this whenever possible first. Did a group of 50 students on a stage with one umbrella and it did a great job. And what a great price.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Package! I do location portrait work and have used several battery powered strobes in the past. I like the clean design of the LiteTrek and figured I'd give it a try. I've had it for a few weeks now and have to say I'm pleased. Nice compact sturdy construction and professional all the way from the strobe to the battery pack. The package included an interesting pistol grip that could come in handy if you have an assistant to hold it. It did not come with a softbox adapter (purchase separately) which would be more useful than the pistol grip. The only other thing I would like to have on the LiteTrek is the option to run on straight AC power. Over all a great deal. I liked it so much that after purchasing the first kit I bought a second kit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have! I use this kit for portraits and weddings and it's just amazing. The strobe is well constructed and lightweight. The interface screen is very friendly and shows the proper information. My only complain is about the power cords... at least one of them should be longer to connect a second strobe in a safety way. If you want a second strobe, think about a second battery, that's what I'll do.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Now I have EXTRA power on location I use a variety of lights for different purposes, profoto / elinchrom in the studio, canon speedlights / Qflashes on location. But I was very curious about this little flash for it's power/size/weight, and of course number of flashes with lithium battery. Have used it on three shoots and LOVING IT so far. Great to have that extra power when trying to fill or overpower sun. The build quality is actually better than I expected. What I love is the battery is DUAL purpose. This is BRILLIANT!! One connector for the LiteTrek and then another output which is HV for speedlights or Qflashes (using the appropriate cables). This helped me justify the cost of this kit, knowing the battery will have multiple uses. Having a MULTI-purpose battery is very useful. On one battery charge, shot over 500 shots with LiteTrek on full-power, then used the SAME battery to power a Canon 580exII for a while and then used the SAME battery to power a Quantum Trio full-power for another 225 shots. That's a ton work getting done with one battery charge! The LiteTrek's power adjustment is only full-steps 1/1, 1/2 1/64, (without 1/3 or 1/10 steps in-between) which may be limitation for some applications. But I prefer speedlights/TTL when I need that kind of control. I don't think the LiteTrek will be my one-and-only light, but WOW what a great way to have that extra power out on location when needed.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Powerful and very portable lighting. The Lite Trek 4.0 is a vesatile kit for location photography. Full 400w/s small monolight gives you the power to mix full sun and flash. Light weight and portable and long lasting power for on location shooting. I took a star because the FP (focal plane) function in reality does not work with SLR cameras as advertised. ALso it would be nice if the kit included the softbox adapter for Impact/Bowens Softboxes. This adapter cost an additional $. As is, you can just use the included 7 reflector or Umbrellas. For light control,the Impact 7 grids work great.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Only time will tell. I needed a powerful battery system to supplement my AC power units yet didn't want to spend too much. This, of course, is asking a lot. I actually purchased three of these units and converters to use Bowens accessories. The units are compact and light. I will be running them through their paces in the weeks and months to come. There were a couple of things I would like to see differently . The power selector switch is in full stops. 1/2 stops would be better. There is no shell over the flash tube so the tube is exposed. I did buy Bowens flash tube cover which will protect them during transit.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not bad, reliable, cheap I'm a pro photographer, using this kit to lighten portraits outside, mostly in broad daylight. Huge available power, light gear, great reliability, battery life is as long as advertised. The only glitch to my eyes is that you can't adjust the power output by thirds or even half stops. Only full stops. Or maybe I'm wrong or I didn't find how to do it properly but then it should be obvious. Anyway, that's not such a big deal to me, since all the other qualities and the price tag really put it ahead of the competition.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Gear Gets Glory Very good value, especially compared to price of other brands and considering the instant saving offer. The biggest surprisebayonet mount is compatible with the Comet CX and CL reflectors, speed rings, optical spot and flash tube covers I've had for years. I can use all those things on the LiteTekunbelievable! I like the fast set-up and break down, each of the 3 LiteTeks I bought has its own battery to hang on the light stand. No AC or head cords laying on the ground. Plenty of power for normal work. Good idea to calibrate the power settings yourself using a flash meter and write it down. The silver cases are too conspicuous for my taste, especially when sitting in the car or on the equipment cart. The lights are sturdy. If they break, it's probably your own fault for being too rough with them. The stroboscopic feature is just plain fun to play around with.
