While I agree with those who suggest avoiding flash, if you are going to use a flash, you can use an external battery pack to get faster recharge and longer battery life.

Take a look at The Canon CP-E4N Compact Battery Pack, or a third party knock-off.

It's $199! It would be cheaper, easier and you'd get more full power flashes of you bought a LI-Ion flash https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1341868-REG/godox_v860ii_f_canon_kit_v860ii_for_canon_kit.html

Yes, the Canon CP-E4N seems overpriced to me.

However there are a number of third party alternatives.

The Bolt P12 is about $60

The Bolt CBP-C1 is about $70

If you search on Amazon for "Canon CP-E4N" you should see additional alternatives.
