Which Tronix Explorer is best suited for you?
For every photographer working and shooting on location and where lighting is very important, there is a perfect Tronix Explorer battery pack for every situation.
High Power and Fast Reaction (Tronix Explorer XT3)
If you are the type of photographer that uses high-powered (800ws/100ws+) flash units and powerpacks, and most often, at full power settings. Or that you need faster recycling time to capture fast moving sequences - then, Tronix Explorer XT3 would be perfect for you.
Rated at 800watts (continuous) and recommended up to 2400ws, it is the most powerful Tronix Explorer battery pack yet. Designed as a portable battery pack for powerful compacts/strobes, at fast recycle times (at full power, as fast as to wall socket recycling time). In addition, Tronix Explorer XT3 can power up more than 2 bi-voltage compacts/strobes. (For regular strobes (analog/digital), 6 to 8 units are OK).

Quick and Easy (Tronix Explorer Mini)
If you are off to a quick and easy photo shoot and requires a light battery pack power, then Tronix Explorer Mini would be your best bet.
Rated at 400watts (continuous) and recommended up to 1200ws, and weighs around 5kg. Despite its small size, it packs the power with its ability to power up 1 or 2 mid-powered compacts/strobes, especially bi-voltage compacts. For a 500ws bi-voltage compact, such as an Elinchrom BXRI500, it can give around 180 to 200 full power pops.

Mid Power and Flexibility (Tronix Explorer XTSE)
If you are working with low to mid power lighting settings, (and occasionally at high power) and needs to capture more frames, then Tronix Explorer XT SE would be your ideal portable power station.
Though it may not give the fast recycling time compared to Exp XT3, it's recycling time is decent enough in most photo shoot. Rated at 350watts (continuous) and recommended up to 2400ws, it can give around 500 full power pops (for a 500ws bi-voltage compact, Elinchrom BXRI). At lower power settings, it can give more pops at a much faster recycling time. The Explorer XT SE was primarily designed to power up bi-voltage compacts. (For regular strobes (analog/digital), 6 to 8 units are OK).
