About the Paul C Buff Vagabond Mini Lithium
When you find yourself going to an on-location shoot the first thing you probably think about is whether there will be any sort of power available. Luckily the Paul C Buff Vagabond Mini allows you to go anywhere and have plenty of power for your entire shoot.
The Vagabond Mini is a 120VAC portable power source that fully charges in 3 hours, weighs only 3.5lbs, and can power up to four Paul C Buff strobes at one time. The Vagabond Mini is one of those must-have tools for on-location work. It really takes the worry out of wondering if you will have enough power for your photoshoot.
The system includes an internal lithium battery that arrives connected to the Vagabond Mini™ Lithium inverter. This inverter takes the power from the internal battery and converts it into a usable, 120VAC true sine wave power source. Your flash units are connected to the inverter, plugging into the two standard, 3-prong power outlets. The Vagabond Mini Lithium includes a multi-level, accurate battery charge indicator and a convenient front panel battery charging connection.
The inverter and battery components are completely enclosed within a strong, high-impact, flame retardant ABS housing. The fully encased battery can be instantly replaced with the slide-in latching mechanism; there are no wires or user connections other than the AC outlets and charger inlet. The unit additionally includes a light stand mounting mechanism and a convenient carrying strap.
The Vagabond Mini Lithium offers fast recycle times, providing 200 to 250 full power flashes per battery charge with 1280 total Ws (two Einstein™ units, for example) connected and 400 to 500 full power flashes per charge with 640 total Ws (one Einstein™ unit or two AlienBees™ B800 units, for example) connected.
