Recently came into a mint condition Speedotron light set consisting of 3 M11 heads and a D802 power pack, as well as other goodies. I plan on using pocket wizards in place of the standard household to PC sync cord.

I read somewhere that if the power pack has not been used for a while to plug it in without lighting for about 24 hours before using for the first time.

Does anyone currently own one of these sets, and can you give any insight into whether this is necessary. I will be shooting DLSRs, 35mm, 6x7, and large format cameras.

Thanks.
