On June 5th 2019 Profoto announced the upgraded version of their B10 light – the Profoto B10 Plus. Those who want more powerful portable light will find B10 Plus a nice alternative of the B10 at a little extra price. With its 500Ws, the B10 Plus matches the output of many monolights.  It is Twice as Powerful as the B10 and Ten times the power of a speedlight – all packed into the size of a medium sized camera lens. Its battery is rated for 200 full-power flashes, each of which is about ten times what you would get from a speedlight.

In full power B10 Plus will recycle in just 2.5 seconds with a flash duration of 1/1300 second (t.5). At minimum power it’ll recycle in just 0.05 seconds and provide a flash duration of 1/50,000 second (t.5). The battery fully recharge in 1.5 hours.

B10 Plus is compatible with more than 120 Light Shaping Tools from Profoto. The B10 Plus is available as a single-head kit or a duo kit.
