Thoughts on Interfit S1 500Ws HSS TTL AC / Battery-Powered Monolight

Just picked up two of these on sale at B&H.  For less than $1100 I got two lights along with two Canon transmitters. They each come with a reflector, and I also purchased an Impact 34" folding beauty dish.  I do weddings and outdoor portraits. Figure the basic reflectors might be OK for bouncing off ceiling in wedding receptions... and the beauty dish for more use on the outdoor portraits. I'm still looking at softboxes, and expect to pick up one or two later.  Usually when we shoot weddings, I use bounce flash using my Canon 600 ex-rt II flash, but really wanted something with some more power.  I like that I can use these either with AC power - for example in a wedding venue, or with battery power in more remote locations.  These are my FIRST real strobes... appreciate any thoughts / recommendations / warnings.  I know just enough about flash and off camera lighting to be dangerous.
