Flashgun batteries
Apr 2, 2013

I've been using GP2700 batteries for my flash guns but I can't find anywhere in the UK that sells them. Any ideas where I can get them? Any recommendations on alternatives? Thanks in advance

I use Eneloop batteries. They're great as they have very little idle discharge, so you can leave them on the shelf for months and they're still good to go when you need them.

One more for Eneloop.

Just avoid "lite" versions, these are not for intensive use.

After researching the various options I've stuck with Eneloops. There are higher-capacity batteries but there are downsides to using them. Eneloops are the best combination of price/capacity/reliability/shot-to-shot speed.
