Strengths: Fast recycling time, very reliable, heavy duty and made very well for outdoor shoots even for traveling.
Very good value for what you can get from this battery pack!
Weaknesses: The weight
I've been very happy with my Innovatronix Explorer XT SE.
I have Elinchrom monolights and since they are bi-voltage and digital, it need constant flow from the battery pack. I tried Alien bees Vagabond II, it didn't work and it only has 1000watts power, then I discover Innovatronix which is cheaper than Vagabond and has more than twice the power of Vagabond, 2400watts so I can use 2-4 heads at the same time which is great!
It is very heavy to carry around but it's worth it!
it also can use to power any kind of electronics, I used it few times to charge my laptop, cellphone,etc when there is no power few times during the hurricane and when I was at the airport and couldn't find any wall socket.
