Re: External Battery Packs

I use 600EX RT flashes and have a Canon CP-E4 battery pack and just bought the Bolt equivalent. The Canon pack uses 8 AA batteries and gets me through any event that I work. The Bolt pack can use 4 or 8 AA batteries and seems to work OK but the cord and connector is not as nice as the Canon one. I wish I had bought another Canon pack instead.  The recycle time with ether pack is quite fast though.

If you are going to hang the pack from a light stand a Turbo is OK but way to heavy to wear all day for an on camera flash.
