EN-350 Battery Pack compact and powerful. Leave a comment

The En-350 is a very compact and powerful battery pack.  Its compact and lightweight enough to be carried around on your shoulder ( weighing just under 2.0kg) . The unit also comes with a stand attachment which allows us the attach the pack to any standard light stand which mean you can pick up the stand, light and pack together. And if you more capacity you can simply get an extra battery. Great inexpensive way of getting studio flash where ever and when ever you need it. Perfect for turning your Elinchrom D-Lites or BRX flashes into a location kit.

Our thanks to Chris for testing the EN-350 pack heres his results.

JBEN350Main700+ individual firings on D-Lite RX4 single head

Initial charge, 2 second recharge, after 200 firing generally about 2 seconds but starting to fall back to 3 seconds, after 450, about 5 seconds, after 600 6 seconds,

Not suitable for modelling lamp use unless it was a low power LED system. System pulses about once every 2.5 seconds with noticeable power output drop.

Charge time approx 3.5 hours.

Issues / quirks – the Battery indicator is not reliable until you have fired a test shot and observed battery indicator. It likes to show 3 bars for as long as possible and after about 2 seconds will climb back from 1 or 2 to three on idle.

Test rig

Consistent output read throughout test when measured in Sekonic light meter and viewing consistency of histogram in both output and colour.
