Rate & Review

The Speedotron Explorer 1500 Portable Power Supply is part of the successful Speedotron Black Line System and uses one or two Speedotron Black Line Light Units and universal accessories. Economically priced, the Explorer provides a cost effective solution to gas powered generators or high priced European portable systems for those location shots where electrical power is not available.

The Explorer 1500 battery provides for up to 225 full power flashes and may be quickly replaced with a spare battery, “The Juice Box.” Each battery contains a universal recharging circuit which draws only 1.3 amperes max from 85 to 265 volts at 47Hz to 63Hz. The Explorer 1500 can use electric current from nearly anywhere in the world without voltage adapters. The low current draw even allows recharging batteries with an inexpensive optional (#11255) inverter connected to a car’s accessory outlet.

1500 Watt-seconds at full power
The two light units are ratioed with a 2:1 (asymmetrical) ratio yielding 1000ws and 500ws each. There is an Isolate / Combine switch which allows connecting the two outlets together for a 1:1 (symmetrical) ratio when two lights are used or full power to one light. Power may be dialed down to -5 f-stops. (46.8ws total or 31.2 plus 15.6ws isolated)

Removable battery module with built-in charger

“The Juice Box” battery module charges to 80% full charge in about two hours and slow charges to 100% overnight. The battery may be plugged into an AC line for charging while the power supply is being used so that it functions similarly to an AC power supply.

Ten-second timer
A ten second timer operates model lamps to conserve battery charge, so no fan circuit is needed in this power supply. 150 watt quartz halogen model lamps are recommended to conserve additional battery power.

Illuminated Display
The Explorer 1500 Digital features an illuminated LCD display that shows power level and system status. Selection of power in accurate repeatable 1/10 f-stop increments is accomplished by a single Push-N-Turn control that also allows the user to navigate three control and status menus.
