To be surprised, the recycling time of both flashes shorten by over 100%!

Nikon SB-800

  • Batteries = Maha Imedion AA x 4pcs
  • Manual 1/1 Full Power Fire
  • Recharge Time (from pressing the fire button to the red light ready button) =  5.5 seconds (none scientific count)
  • Use together with Phottix External Battery Pack (Maha Imedion AA x 6pcs)
    • Recharge Time = 2 seconds!

Canon 580EX II

  • Batteries = Maha Imedion AA x 4pcs
  • Manual 1/1 Full Power Fire
  • Recharge Time (from pressing the fire button to the red light ready button) =  5 seconds (none scientific count)
  • Use together with Phottix External Battery Pack (Maha Imedion AA x 6pcs)
    • Recharge Time = 2 seconds!

Yes, I tested on two different flashes, and the performance seems similar! Take note that for each type of flash, the battery pack is different with different plug. At only RM225 as compared to original manufacturer product that costs over RM500, Phottix Flash External Battery Pack is a bargain and deliver the job well!
