Back in the 1990s I thought about using Quantums with my Speedlites but decided against it because I visited Canon's Factory Service and saw all those fried Speedlite contacts. I have always used my flashes with regular Duracell batteries.

First, Canon technical reps advised me to fire your Speedlites in short bursts rather and firing it off continuously because you will damage the flash unit/bulb and cause the flash to overheat.

Qflash doesn't overheat.

I carry a pack of Duracell (20+) to sports venues and that is not really a problem.
