    There are battery packs for certain models of flash guns.

    For example, if you're using Nikon system, the SB-600 does not support being powered from external sources. The SB-800 does and it can be powered from SD-8A or Quantum battery packs.

    I dun think the Sunpack can be used with a external power source. So if you do want to, do consider getting a SB-800 first.


    Cheers,

    ya that's an option... but since u want faster recharging cycles.. take the powerex... most people would choose between these 2.. depending on ur needs...

    The 2000mAh capacity is gd enough for me cos now i usually use Manual to adjust flash power so recycling rate is practically almost instant and can last nearly 1K shots.
