Rechargables? Is the rf rate a hindrance to you? Thanks

Try keeping a lookout in BnS section for second hand SD-8A which is usable on SB-900.

Extra packs of enelops for me.. not a major concern.. Sd-9 is never essential unless u shoot events or weddings so as to speak.. i felt

1) use external battery pack
2) go for 2700mAh batteries
3) depends on how u use ur flash e.g. bounce off ceilings use more battery
