Not sure if anyone here does location shooting
but when i initially bought these lights i didnt do much other
than in my studio, so power wasnt an issue i just plugged them into the wall and away i would go.

Now that i am doing more location stuff i had to shelve my 200s and use some pocket flashes ala strobist style for the location stuff.

But someone figured out a solution for getting the genesis 200's mobile i had a chance to see it working at our last meetup and he posted his setup in our discussion

I know for a long time ive been searching and couldnt find a workable solution or a straight answer for how to power these lights but i think this the closest and best solution so far without having to switch to another light brand (alien bees, travelites, etc.)

that is great.. but it seems it would cost about as much as the Alienbee's Battery... right?

but the thing is you can change to a larger battery and or larger power supply and with the 300-600watt system run more lights as well as aux lights
with the aliens batt and power it is a bit more portable but limited to 150ws the same as 150w system i built
but if your in a pinch you build one day and use it the next day (charging time)
diy is a fun project and its just another option and if you have a extra car or trolling batt you just saved 60-100 bucks
