Re: Are you sure it's the batteries?

Your right, in this case (25 full power flashes) it is not the batteries heating up, although that is a problem over longer periods, or at least that adds to the heat internally of the unit.

I know the bulb puts out a lot of heat but after this test it was not that hot to the touch, at least on the face of it.

I think it may be also the recharging circuitry inside, the faster the recharge (good batteries or external power packs) that also contribute to the heat and the problem.

So thanks (all) for reading and adding to this, it is a problem that I hope Sony are aware of and can do something about or consider in future models.
