Hey everyone, I noticed that most monolights are 120v for use in the US. Is there any monolight that is reasonably priced that can do both 120v and 220v? I am asking because I am planning on taking it to foreign countries and they often use 220v. I checked the alienbees units and they are all 120v. Thanks everyone!

Try Profoto, they make strobes that will do both 120v and 220v.

The new Alienbees MAX is supposed to be 90-260 VAC. But they're vaporware at the moment, supposed to be released in July.

Thanks for all the great pointers! The new alienbees sound great, I think it is everything that I need since I am using cybersyncs right now.
