It is one of the reasons why monolights became more popular than pack and head systems.(And why the national grid uses AC.) DC just doesn’t travel well – a lot of power is lost between the pack and the head. It is probably also behind Paul Buff’s ridiculous ‘effective’ watt-seconds for Alien Bees – not a comparison between monolights, but between monolights and packs.

He has mentioned in the past that it is why he came up w/ "effective"....i.e., pack/head cables eat a lot of the power...

I'm still a bit surprised that much power is lost...2500WS pack/head is only 1/4 stop brighter than 1000WS? Wow...
