URGENT: Flash battery for weding with 5D
Jul 13, 2012

Sorry if the wrong forum, just a quick question. My 580EX-II charges in about 3 seconds on 4 rechargeables allowing 20 shots per minute. Seems like a lot of chance to miss the precious moment. What is the best pocket/portable external battery option that does not cost as much as the flash itself? Does it just use more AA's or has a proprietary battery? Does it work in tandem with the 4 internal AA's? I also need it to be compatible with 600EX-RT as I plan to upgrade soon. Thanks a lot!
