Another thing that is important is how well a power pack, especially a battery supplied one, manages the energy source. With the profoto, there are no provisions to dial in a auto shut off time as it's set for 30 minutes. Broncolor - auto shut off after 15 to 120 minutes of inactivity, user adjustable. Points to Broncolor on this one.

Remember that I shoot with multiple different systems. Profoto, Broncolor and Briese. The Profoto units are good, but they're not built with the same technology or finesse that the Broncolor has. Briese - great for the lighting modifiers but their flash packs and power supplies leave a bit to be desired.

As soon as I get a Bron move 1200L pack for long term usage, I'll update this thread.
