Preorder: Flashpoint XPLOR 100 Pro TTL R2 Battery-Powered Monolight (Godox AD100 Pro) $299
It would be much more useful if it could have used the same battery as the AD200 series strobes which most likely could have allowed it to provide 500-600 full power shots.
Yeah, good eye. I thought it would at least use the same as the V1... but guess not. I could see picking a couple up when they hit the 150-200 range.
This shot was done outdoors after the sun went down and you can see from the background that it's close to dark but Kat was nicely lit from my left side. ISO 100, f8, 1/60th, 37mm with RF 24-70mm f/2.8L on my R5. The AD360 is $400 new but will give ~500 flashes at full power and 1-2 sec recycle time. The battery snaps on and with 2 spare batteries I'm good for 1,200 - 1,500 shots at least.
First part is opinion (not bad, but best???). For usefulness, it trades blows with a V1 imo.
For the second part... paying retail for Flashpoint/Godox (or any product for that matter) is silly when you don't have an immediate need for it. Plus the FP brand goes on sale so much it's worth it to wait in that situation. Also, think you missed the point on price... there are other alternatives out there that can do a similar thing or better for around the same price point. I would be hard-pressed to pick one of these up over an AD200 at the same price point (which these are at).
So how many are you buying? I mean it's nothing right?

Looks like the batteries might be compatible w/ the V1's (or vice versa). Also, after seeing the size of it... I could see getting a couple in place of V1's as small off camera lights.
