Paul C. Buff to unveil Vagabond Mini Lithium later this month  
Friday, September 3, 2010 | by Rob Galbraith
Paul Buff, founder of lighting maker Paul C. Buff, indicates in a forum post this week that his company will soon reveal the Vagabond Mini Lithium, a compact 3.5lb/1.6kg portable power pack capable of driving AlienBees and presumably other studio flash.

The unit is comprised of a user-detachable 8.8AH/14.8V Lithium battery and pure sine wave inverter in a "molded housing design" that is promised to be capable of powering an AB1600 monolight for 500 pops at 640ws.

It's to go into production in about two months, are expected to be available in both 120VAC and 230VAC versions and "they don't cost much," says Buff.

His full statement on the Vagabond Mini Lithium is below.

3 1/2 LBS TOTAL - INCLUDING BATTERY PACK, 500 640WS SHOTS FROM AN AB1600 PER CHARGE, 8.8AH 14.8V LITHIUM BATTERY (EQUIVALENT TO ABOUT 14AH SLA,) NO SULFATING, 3-4 HOUR CHARGER IN OR OUT OF THE UNIT, SOPHISTICATED MOLDED HOUSING DESIGN WITH INSTANT PLUG IN BATTERY PACK, STAND CLAMP AND SHOULDER STRAP AND LOTS MORE. IT'S BEEN COMPLETELY TESTED AND ALL PARTS ARE ON ORDER NOW, WITH ABOUT A 60 DAY ANTICIPATED PRODUCTION START TIME. THESE SHOULD HAVE NO SIGNIFICANT BACKLOG ONCE THEY START SHIPPING. AND THEY DON'T COST MUCH AND SHOULD BE AVAILABLE IN 120VAC AND 230VAC VERSIONS.
