when I power down (shut off) my acute 2400r, it pops one last flash through the strobes that are connected, my 1200r pack does not do this.
You think its normal for the 2400 to cycle through one final flash on shut down?

I have the 1200 Acute and it pops one last time if the level is high enough.

I generally unplug it from the wall and pop it anyway one last time.

I have six photogenics and they all pop when I turn them off.

I've always thought that was a good thing.

Dumping the capacitors is good for safety reasons.

If you were carrying one in the rain, I can assure you, you would be much happier to do so if it was discharged rather than full.

Hi Mark, thanks for that...this would make sense, my 1200 has been hooked to a lo setting light, so probably why it hasnt had to do a final pop, while my 2400's are maxed out.
Good to know and thanks.
