Actual power requirement for Profoto 500's
Although I know the lights are rated as 500W/s I'm unsure as to what the actual power requirement is in use.
Assuming worst case senario, (max flash power / repeated flash at max rate / max modeling bulb,) what would the power requirement be?
I'm in the UK where mains voltage is 220 / 240v
Profot recommend a slow blow 6A fuse, so it's going to be around there - but alas Profoto don't have anything exact in their spec.
Given the speed of re-charge between full flashes and potential use of the modeling lamp, I'm assuming more than 500W is required)
