Check hereĀ http://www.calumetphoto.com/eng/product/calumet_speedlight_powerblock_900/cf0190

Then check on ebay comes in fluorescent colors but buyer beware unless you know the seller.  I forget what brand they come in.

The cable that is needed is Quantum CO5 for Olympus.

Last December Calumet had the power pack for 146$I kept looking at even downloaded the manual. I did sent them an email but no response.  Anyway I took a chance but bought the cable from B&H. When I registered it online I told them it works.  The battery is inside although it has screws it may be user serviceable.  Back in the DAY I had two Metz 402's and the batteries had four screws.  When they would not hold the charge I took it apart and had 5 - c-cells with soldered tabs.  I usually bought them when I traveled to the Hamvention at Dayton Ohio and bought a bunch. I can't remember how many times I rebuilt them but they always worked.

Anyway the above does work.

Ciao,
