Im trying to work out a way to get my Calumet Gen's 400's useable on location:

My Options I Can see so far are:

Honda Generator - Medium Size

- Noisy
- Smelly
- Heavy
+ Lots of pops

DIY Sine wave Rechargable battery packs

- Expensive
- Also Heavy
- Limited pops
+ Smaller foot space


Has anyone got round using 240v stobes out on location?


Oh...Hello :)

Keep in mind that Chris Burfoot is only recreating the test done by Innovatronix by using one strobe.

So far there is no confirmation that you can properly power two Genesis 400's with an Innovatronix XT SE. There's a lot of speculation but nothing definitive.

Thanks for the heads up Guys!

I was just about to ask about powering 2 strobes from that!

I brought the 400's and a month later the 300's with power pack came on the market! Doh!

Generator..could i make it work? Its not overly tank engin noisy, but still noisy :)
