Profoto Presents: The BatPac

Portable power source

Elmsford, NY – May 17th 2010 – Profoto, the world’s leading manufacturer of professional quality electronic flash lighting systems and light shapers is proud to introduce the BatPac.

The BatPac is a portable “power-in-a-bag” unit, the combination of a dedicated inverter and a high capacity battery. It gives you power for Profoto D1 monolights even when shooting far away from any main socket. First of all it is specially designed for handling sophisticated high power units like Profoto’s D1 flashes; but it can be used with previous Profoto ComPact units and Acute2 flash generators as well.

The BatPac has advanced safety functions and is very easy to use. It’s innovative design delivers power with exceptional stability. It controls overvoltage, over temperature, low power, low battery voltage etc., preventing damage to the BatPac and connected flash units. The Profoto BatPac complies with CE and IEC safety requirements.

BatPac gives up to 600W continuous power from 2 integrated separate mains outlets.

The BatPac will power all D1 monolights – 250, 500, 1000Ws.

Number of flashes
300 full power flashes at 1000Ws
600 full power flashes at 500Ws
1200 full power flashes at 250Ws

The BatPac has all the other benefits of a well-engineered power inverter: It can provide power for charging your laptop, camera batteries and more. It can run constant light sources, wind machines, refrigerator boxes and many more electrical units that are frequently used while shooting on location.

A sturdy and comfortable black nylon bag with shoulder strap and harness is integral part of the BatPac. This long awaited addition to the Profoto family will give photographers the creative freedom of on-demand power anywhere.

Deliveries of the Profoto BatPac start beginning of June 2010.
