Hi,

4 Power Cubes, charger and flight case still available.

Looking for about £1900.

(Flightcase has a dent in the back, but the kit was not in the case at the time of damage)

Hi,

I bought the batteries with my rig in 2008 - They have not had heavy usage as I worked in other roles as well as operating.

In that time the kit was only dry hired once, and that was last year for a couple of days.

Thea reason for the price? To be honest, I know what they cost me and the price I'm asking in considerably less, but I didn't check current prices so I'm open to offers.

Thanks,

Chip

Powercubes are the same as the HL9S direct from IDX (The "HL" stands for High Load). You can get them for less than $400 new from any IDX dealer (better if you are a good client). Tiffen had an exclusive deal initially but now you can get them direct from IDX, just not Tiffen Powercube branded but same specs and if you want to spend a little more you can get them with the IDX multi battery locking system to piggyback another battery onto them. Look at IDX site for specs. I have had Powercubes for several years now and I will be swithcing out to the IDX version as my batteries get too low for use. This is the price point you should be looking at. A little time to do your research goes a long way. Unless you like to spend more money on the same product...

Hey thanks Grayson, I didn't know the history of the Power Cube :) and in the time i've owned them I've not had to look at buying any other batteries so I'm definitely a bit out of touch. I guess when I got them they were still exclusive to Tiffen.

Anyway, based on this new information I am of course open to any sensible offers on the batteries and charger.

Chip,
