If taken care of properly, this flash tube can give you tens of thousands of shots. You'll most likely break it before it burns out, so it's not a bad idea to always have a second flash tube on hand. We understand how frustrating it can be to send back your light head just to have a simple flash tube replaced. We purposely made both our Strobelite and Strobelite Plus with a user-changeable flash tube, so that your entire shoot isn't ruined because you accidentally broke a tube. Simply put your back-up tube in, and you're ready to keep shooting!
One of the best ways to tell a high-quality strobe from a low-quality strobe is it's consistency. This flash tube provides consistent daylight color temperature at 5,500±100 °K. The proof is in the performance. This flash tube gives our Strobelite and Strobelite Plus consistent output flash after flash after flash.
To replace the flash tube, first make sure the unit is unplugged. Then, simply remove the small spring from the hook and pull the flash tube directly outward. (Make sure to have gloves on as bare skin CANNOT touch the flash tube). Then insert your replacement into these same holes apply some pressure until it locks into place. Re-attach the spring on the hook and you are ready to go! Just in case you're not aware, you must wear gloves when installing the flash tube. The oils in our skin can damage the flash tube.
This flash tube is protected by a one-year warranty against manufacturing defects.
