Can I use my broncolor flash anywhere in the world?
Yes, all current Broncolor flash units are compatible with worldwide voltages. In the case of the Senso power packs you must select the appropriate voltage (either 120v or 230v) with a switch on the side of the pack. With all other current Broncolor power packs, monolights and battery chargers the voltage regulation is done automatically. You will need to use a proper wall plug adaptor (not a voltage transformer) to be able to plug the power cord from the light (or battery charger) into the wall outlet in the country you are traveling to. Wall outlet configurations vary greatly from one country to another. Another important thing to remember is that with a few exceptions, you must change the modeling lamp to the proper voltage. For example, flash heads that are purchased in the USA come fitted with 120volt modeling lamps, if you want to use them in other parts of the world such as Europe, you would need to install 230volt modeling lamps. These 230volt modeling lamps can be purchased from your broncolor dealer. Always check the electrical voltage in the country you are traveling to and ensure you have installed the correct voltage modeling lamp; otherwise damage can occur. Some Broncolor units do not require you to change the modeling lamp and can be used as is anywhere in the world. These units include the MobiLed, Siros, and Siros L.
