        Well built fits snugBattery check button and lights are nice so that you know what the energy level isOnly complaint is terminals exposedNo back cover for terminals. They are at lest flat Have to assume all is safe but my mind says just like any battery you would not want to inadvertently have contact Ina a case or bag etc with metal object etc.Have not used long enough to know longevity and long term performance

          The Lithium-ion Battery for B1 Air makes TTL shooting on location a no-brainer. Everything works seamlessly and having extra batteries on site means you just keep on shooting! After years of operating with speed lights on location, this equipment is truly a dream come true!

            If you use the B1 500 strobe you need to have an extra battery; not because they don't last but because once you start using this strobe you'll want to keep shooting with it all day. With the optional car charger you can fast charge the battery but a spare is always nice and a must for a working professional.I had one fall out on the ground and crack the housing but it still works; make sure you get that "CLICK" sound when you snap it into place on your strobe.

                Comments about Profoto Lithium-ion Battery for B1 500 AirTTL:

                The batteries are great. I bought two extra thinking I would need them. The first wedding I shot, I used either one or two of the lights for about 300 shots during the three hours of portraits, and then about 900 shots during the six hour reception. The batteries were just starting to give me the warning blink when I finished. Keep in mind that the portraits used the most juice as the lights were at about 1/2 to 3/4 power (if not on full) during those. At the reception, the lights were set at about 1/4 power since it was a dark venue.

                    It snaps in in a jiffy and is long lasting. It's always a good idea to have a backup.

                        It amazes me that so much energy can be stored within such a small and lightweight piece of equipment. I am very impressed with these batteries, and love the quick charge time.
