    Yeah..I would retire those asap

    I had a beat up set like 30 years ago.. and I brought them in for repair, and the repair guy wouldn't give them back..he said they were too dangerous

    YMMV

    What exactly is the danger with old Ascorlights?

    I HEARD..they were not grounded best practices and could zap you esp if you yanked a flash head cord out while there was still a charge in the pack

    plus..by this time..all the caps have to be all dried up..it's been like what...45-50 years since they came out or something

    I have three of the White Lightning units as well. I use them primarily when I go on location. My "in-house" lights (I hesitate to call them studio, because I don't have a permanent studio) consist of a 2400WS Speedotron power pack, an 800WS Speedotron power pack and five heads. Now that this thread is up and running maybe I can learn to use them correctly!

    My biggest complaint about the White Lightning units is that they do not respond to my infrared trigger. Unless a real strobe is used, they only fire from a synch cord.

    If it ain't broke....don't fix it!
