Rechargeable batteries for Speedlights
Nov 9, 2010

Hi all,

This question is only related by lighting insofar as I need some advise on what to power my flashes with.

I'm looking for decent batteries that will give more than 20 flashes off of a single charge. I've gone through 2 sets of Uniross 2700 batteries in both my SB800 and my YN-560, and neither of them have ever given me more than 20 - 30 flashes before either going to very slow recharge (measured in seconds) or running out.

I get a lot more than that from a set of alkaline duracells.

Thanks in advance...
