Although the pocket wizard is the industry standard wireless trigger, when you are investing in to a system that has a native wireless trigger capability you should go with it.

I have had the pleasure of using the pocket wizard on many shoots and found it to be a great reliable tool. However I do own the hensel lights with the build it trigger receiver and I find it a lot more useful. Besides not having to have extra wires and batteries for the receivers, the transmitter is smaller then the pocket wizard and also has remote management capabilities for the lights. You can control the power output of each of the lights by using the hensel wireless trigger. You can also use it to turn your modeling lights on and off.

So use the hensel system to wireless control your hensel lights, and if you ever go to some other light system that does not have a native trigger, then switch over to Pocket Wizard.
