I have seen these on Flickr Strobist, lots of talk about battery powered AC/DC lights starting to hit the market...good news for all of us. I like the AB's, but I don't like an 18lb battery to lug around. These look similar to the Interfit Stellar Extremes that are also AC/DC.
These look great, the Flashpoints have been getting good reviews due to their metal bodies, I know there are a lot of happy users out there. Specs say the light weighs 3 lbs, the battery is 1lb. Recycle time is 1.5 seconds on battery, .5 seconds on AC.
Anyone have any experience yet? Thinking I might try them.
