This would provide the UK with something similar to the Alien Bees Vagabond and Tronix Explorer, both of which can only be imported.

We’re currently developing a mobile battery unit that can power all of our lights. It won;t have a control panel – you’ll need to use the panel already on the flash head, but it will provide continuous AC Power over a respectable duration.

Release date?

The battery pack won’t be available until probably late 2010.
