-15,000 full power flash per charge, yes 15k.
-Rechargeable onboard battery, no more cords and power packs.
-Variable flash duration at all power (1/8000th to freeze, or 1/250th to take away shutter sync issues).
-150Ws. With a little math and experiment, it should be more powerful than my 198' GN speed light.
-Instant recharge to full power without overheating (LED)
-Stable color temperature of 5600K
Battery is charged using this little plug. Reminds me of connecting different parts of my desktop computer. Charger is on the right side of the first image, and it is pure cheaply made. When you plug it in, it sounds like it will explode. I immediate pull it off, searched through the user manual, nothing on the safety of the battery, charging, etc. Great. Noise eventually disappeared after first 5 minutes of charging.
The battery also does not sit flush onto it's holder. Looks like someone jammed it in there and wrapped it in duct tape.
The only positive out of this section is that the battery powers the flash and it was able to recharge full power flash at 6 fps.
Flash duration changing is cool, and it's one of the main reasons I brought this flash. However, it was pratically useless. After increasing the flash duration to over 250th, the power starts dropping. By the time it gets to 1/8000th, my cell phone's LED is probably brighter. Why? I don't know. Flash duration should not affect the intensity of the flash, and most flash is faster than 250th anyway, so it's not because the shutter exposes for a fraction longer.
Color temperature "stable" at 5600k? Maybe they measured using a different scale, because it is packed with green tint compared to my speed lights, or just naturally light in general. This is a LED flash, I would've never expected this as a problem.
If you are looking for a $600-650 USD bag, look no further, this is the bag to have.
If you're wondering if I've contacted them, yes, and no response. Their website's form is not working, emailing them does not work, and no reply from facebook page so far. I will keep an eye out, and hopefully something changes (maybe I got a bad sample?). As of right now, this thing is going back to B&H as soon as possible.
