Godox XEnergizer RS-series is a sturdier location pack and head

Godox's latest XEnergizer location flash has a stronger head designed to accept heavier light shapers.

Chinese lighting manufacturer Godox has announced a new version of its XEnergizer location lighting kit. The RS400P and RS600P are much like the original ES400P and ES600P, offering a lithium-ion interchangeable battery pack, wireless remote control, digital power adjustment and a Bowens S-type accessory mount.

However the most recent RS-series swaps out the old head for a bigger, sturdier one, which should boost confidence of photographers worried about the XEnergizer’s ability to hold heavy¬†light modifiers. There is also an improved LED modelling lamp.

Following its unveiling at the China P&E show in Beijing, we can expect to see this new location lighting kit on shelves soon, including at US-based retailer CheetahStand.com, named the Cheetah Light CL-600. There is also a Lencarta-branded light, the Safari 2, which incorporates the same head design.

The original XEnergizer is available on eBay for around $500 a kit. Are you in the market for a portable lighting kit? What would you go for?
