The only thing better that a B10 Plus is two of them and thats exactly what Profoto offers with the B10 Plus OCF Flash Duo Kit. The kit includes two B10 Plus heads with chargers and lithium-ion batteries that will give you 200 full power flashes. Stand adapters and a USB-C cable are also included and it all fits in the kits Core Backpack.
Profoto B10 Plus OCF Flash Head
Profoto knows when its got a good thing but rather than rest on its laurels and enjoy the ride, they continue to tweak and enhance the product as they have done previously with the B1/B1X and the D1/D2. Such is the case with the augmented B10 Plus OCF Flash Head, which at 500Ws offers double the power of its predecessor.
Like the B10, the B10 Plus is part of the OCF (Off Camera Flash) family and in a move thats consistent with their ongoing “techno-logic”, Profoto packs all the features of its forerunner (and then some) into the B10 Plus.
The 500Ws light has a 10-stop variable power range and swift recycle times of 0.05 to 2.5 seconds. Freeze Mode, which prioritizes flash duration yields a very short 1/50,000 second at minimum power. The B10 Plus is powered by a lithium-ion battery that gives you 200 full-power flashes on a 90-minute charge, while 60 minutes will top up the battery to 80% if youre short on time. Of course, the B10 Plus retains TTL technology that takes advantage of your DSLRs flash auto-exposure system and significantly shortens the time between inspiration and execution and capture. The path to this great feature is purchase of an optional wireless radio Air Remote TTL controller, which is currently made for Nikon, Canon, Fujifilm, Olympus, and Sony cameras.
The hot-shoe-mounting controller has eight channels and three groups, ensuring minimal interference with other nearby systems and equipment. Each group can be controlled independently from one another, permitting +/-2 EV adjustment of power ratios for TTL systems and nine stops of manual control. It can trigger the B10 Plus in manual mode at distances up to 1000 feet and in TTL mode up to 330 feet – the approximate length of a football field. The B10 Plus and the Air Remote TTL also support High Speed Sync with shutter speeds as quick as 1/8000 second to give the photographer complete control of background illumination or to allow use of wide apertures for creative work. Theres also a Profoto Smartphone App that allows you to capture well-lit images wirelessly with your phone.
Besides this multitude of features, the B10 Plus has an LED modeling light with the equivalent power of a 150W incandescent lamp thats not only dimmable but has color temperature thats variable from 3000 to 6500K. Its high CRI of 90-96 makes it usable for video. The battery will give you 75 minutes run time on full power.
Increased power, a small form factor, battery power, remote control, photo and video compatibility, and smartphone connectivity make the B10 Plus yet another impressive entry in the OCF roster.

B10 Plus vs the B10
The three key differences between the B10 and the B10 Plus are flash power, size and weight. They also share the same accessories but the bag size in the single head kits are made appropriate to their individual sizes.

Great news for photographers who use the B10 or B10 Plus OCF Flash and own an Android phone. Now you can download an app to control all AirTTL lights using your Android phone.
