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)

    Should stay discontinued!

    At first i was very excited about a 400 w/s light that can work with my Quantum or Godox batteries. I can overlook the lack of HSS or even a built in trigger making a Godox 400 pro a much better option. The final straw was when after a year of sitting in my light bag I needed a 5th light for a commercial shoot and I turn in on and it blew up! Thinking it was the flash tube in which I ordered a spare i quickly realized it was internal and the light needed major repair. The light only has a limited 1 year warranty so it was a total waste of time for a light purchased 2 years ago and I used handful of time. Do not waste your money!

    Nice Light weight rig for location work for the money

    I use the lightTrek on a boom with either a Octabox or 27 Impact Beauty Dish. I usualy have an assistant with me holding the light on the boom. Only problems I have had is the battery... Not sure if it is the charger or what. Last session I thought it was fully charged and only got 10 shots and battery went dead.

    Great when it worked

    I bought a second one of these handy lights after using my first one for several years and loving it. I use it every portrait session I do and it is very reliable and recharges quickly. It is powerful enough to get that wonderful look using a flash to overpower the sun and create studio lighting outdoors.

    Using 2 Flash Head on a single battery is problematic

    I first bought one spot and was very satisfy by the power and the ability to shoot anywhere with a battery so i bought a second one. Yes, you can connect 2 flash on the same battery but you have only one option with the cables. You have to use the proprietary cables provided with the kit. I thought i could find third party cables but not. You have to use Impact Cables. Only 10 feet for one and 7 feet for the second one. This is really too short when you what to shoot a head to toe subject. I contact Impact and you can't find any longer cables even third party cables. So if you want to use only one spot this is an interesting flash but for 2 or more you will have to buy another 550$ battery eventually.

    I highly recommend these flash heads.

    I purchased these lights to photograph a pageant and they surpassed my expectations. I had to turn the power way down for the glamor shots. There was more than enough light for the group shots. Re-charge lag is nonexistent at settings other than full power. At full power lag time is about 1/2 a second. The digital controls are a snap to use. Light and very portable.

    Take it with you!

    Great portable lighting solution with impressive battery life and lighting power. I typically use Canon Speedlites but decided to add this kit to my equipment collection to take better portraits outside. Very pleased with this purchase. The only thing I wish they did a better job of was the design of the umbrella shaft opening on the light stand adapter. It takes quite a bit of force to insert a 8mm umbrella shaft - almost to the point you think you will break something. There is a metal clip inside that holds the shaft by tension - there is no locking screw.

    Portable and easy

    I use this as an off the camera flash. It works great. It's actually really easy to use.

    Can this be triggered using a Yongnuo slave or a SB800?
    Asked by: Richard N.
    A Yongnuo trigger can be connected via the 3.5mm sync port or you can optically trigger this head with an SB-800 that is set in manual power mode.

    There is no fuse in this lamp head. As far as repairs go on the head, it would be best to contact the manufacturer regarding this. They can be reached using the following link:

    How long does the battery last?
    Asked by: tom
    I have not determined the duration of battery life, since I have used the unit indoors (implying access to a power source) and at most for two hours for each shoot. I have had no issues for this limited duration.
