AFSQ 2400ws Quartz Flashtube for Standard non-modeling Flash Heads

AFSQ 2400ws Quartz Flashtubes fit all of the standard Flash Heads such as the Classic #001 and #002 Heads that had no modeling light feature. They also fit the new Extra Small Basic Heads HSBC or HSBQ. This is a super duty flashtube for high power or Action Packs' fast flash duration. The Flashtubes push/pull straight in/out and they will last for tens of thousands of flashes or one face down fall onto a hard surface. Any of the Heads that have a modeling light would use the AFTE instead of this one.
Manufacturer: Lumedyne, Inc.

The AFSQ is the high power flashtube for any of the Heads that Lumedyne has ever offered that do not have a modeling light feature. This is the recommended Flashtube for Action Packs and any heavy duty usage.  It is higher power rated because the helix is Quartz glass rather than the normal Pyrex flashtubes and that makes it better able to handle more heat.  It is not stronger against impact damage.

It casts a 50 degree coverage with the reflector normal and 70 degrees back in the wide angle setting.  Because this is a little bit more narrow than the modeling style bulb it is also slightly brighter by about 1/3 f-stop.

This is an 2400ws rated flashtube so when you plug this into your Head, then you can comfortably shoot from 3ws to 2,400ws.

If you never flash over 800ws through one Head, then you could use the less expensive 800ws Standard Flashtube AFSE.

This will not fit into any of the Heads that have a modeling light due to the legs and bulb that would not go into this flashtube.

ATTE Flashtube Extender

The ATTE goes into a Flash Head where the Flashtube normally goes and adds about an inch to the position of the Flashtube from the face of the Head. This is generally preferred when you need a different coverage from a custom reflector than the tube provides from it's normal location.

CQ1P International Single Quick Charger USA, UK, Euro & AU

This Charger works at a Quick rate from any AC wall voltage worldwide and includes plug adapters for most of the world. It charges Small Batteries as fast as 3 hours and can charge all sizes of Lumedyne Batteries and Cyclers. This is the "normal" charger for all batteries because we no longer offer a basic Trickle Charger. This is not recommended for batteries older than from 2002 with serial number below 149300. If your battery is that old, contact Lumedyne directly. If you paid to update your PEPI in the battery, then it is OK.

BLRG Large Battery NiCd

The BLRG Large sized Battery provides 300 flashes at 200ws with a 48 month pro-rate warranty. It uses three decks of of our no memory NiCd battery cells and is about 3 inches tall and weighs just over three and a half pounds.

HSBQ Extra Small Basic 2400ws Head w/ 7' Straight Cord

This is the high power 2400ws Basic Head and is a great value. It has high quality circuits and uses the same flashtubes as the bigger Heads but in a smaller molded enclosure so they are also less expensive. They are electronically the same as the larger heads except for the lack of the household sync jack. It is true that the "Basic" Extra Small Heads are the only Heads currently offered without a modeling light which is one of the reasons that it is less expensive than all the rest of the Lumedyne Heads. It also saves money by avoiding duplicating the Power Pack's ready indicator on the Head. This is the best value for a Flash Head that just flashes, and does it well. This Head includes a grid and diffusor set with the reflector and 2400ws Quartz non-modeling Flashtube (AFSQ).
