The Indra500’s metal cased battery pack is really beautifully designed, the only thing missing was any built-in mounting point (other than possibly the shoulder strap).
Phottix have addressed this with the new tailor made Indra Battery Pack Light Stand Mount, a high grade alloy bracket which supports the base of the Indra500 battery pack.
While a simple elastic Velcro strap holds the pack in place, and allows for fast removal from the bracket if needed.
A built-in alloy clamp opens to 30mm in order to fit most light stands, and the jaw is lined with slip resistant material.
With the battery pack secured to the base of the light stand it acts as extra ballast, while the stand is generally more easily re-positioned as one unit while on location.
Or just conveniently keep the pack off the floor (mounted on a roller stand etc) in the studio.
