    I would define all of these products "extremely expensive"
    – I don't know a single photographer that could afford using such equipment out in the fields
    – I don't know how much CO2 and stuff the company produced to make these. And how much we produce to make the money to get them.

    I will say I have lenses that are more like car and house payments…

    To run an inexpensive remote power supply for off camera flash is easily double this – not a perfect comparision – but http://www.paulcbuff.com/zeuspacks.php – these are the cheap ones..

    This seems like you get a lot for the money – in a package that is actually well made…and might actually do what it says..

    the cheaper versions of this stuff is truly junk.. Hopefully when +Scott Bourne gets his – he will review it and lets us all know..

    This would be handy on a shoot in the Australian outback where power can be over 200km away

    I am sure you know you can find solar panels with under $80 and USB chargers/batteries with under $50 on ebay amazon etc

    This does do more than just charge USB.. It is an inverter also… To put this together in this small a package on one's own with parts would costs more than this unless you are not counting labor

    There have been a couple of companies providing this for years.  This company I had looked in to a while ago for a vehicle solution for 120V use for burning man
