Now that I have both 500W and 150W Portaflood complete, it is time to add some performance data.
In the coming weeks I will be setting up a head to head test between PortaFlood 1 (500W), PortaFlood 2 (150W) and a 50W Dichroic halogen. The test will be in a dark room, measuring the maximum light at 1 meter using a uncalibrated light meter. That is where the “Reference” 50W globe comes in. This test will be a comparison one to a normal light you can buy for a light shop.
The distance of 1m will be maintained, but the light will be adjusted for maximum output. Both Voltage and current (Raw input power) will also be recorded.
