Customers asked, folks requested, I listened so we came out with a smaller unit.  It is intended for folks with smaller power needs, the wife or second shooter, baby shoots, passports small jobs, a back-up, the battery for an external unit, perfect for 4/3 smaller rigs.  

They love the TUXEDO. We ship the 2017 Tuxedos on a regular basis now and combined with the larger Black Box, they make a nice two-some.  It was designed as a back-up for the Black Box or occasional use for smaller jobs as a remote flash triggered with the mains;  

Again as a power pack for the smaller four battery powered hybrid digitals. It serves well  for the smaller more petite shooters.  Slips in a pocket, or clips on a belt.  It's thin profile allows it even in the back pocket of Celeste's  jeans…

It's a back up, short jobs and crash scenes, candids or backup for PJ weddings where you can't stretch the light that far.  THE  TUXEDO shares the same voltage, cables and applications, limited by size, with 3/8 of the power of the Black Box.
