      Quantum Batteries have been the single most important component in my lighting bag for over 20 years. Getting the power to the flash is a critical need, and quantum's MKZ3 module is just the ticket! The durability of the wires and connections, coupled with the handy attached screwdriver blade to tighten the module inside my flash unit is invaluable to me.
      This is a well-thought-out component, and bears the Quantum assurance of durability & quality.
      "Power when you need it" is an apt expression.

      Works great used with Black Box battery

      Expensive but best option for my needs. Used to connect a Canon 540EZ to a Black Box battery. Works great.

      Comments about Quantum Instruments MKZ3 Locking Module:

      As a long-time Quantum 1 battery user (over 20 years now) I've come to rely on my quantum's to power my speed lights, way back in the Vivitar 283 days right up to the Nikon SB-800s I now use. The module MUST be strong and reliable, and these Quantum-made ones ARE! Mine last for years of heavy use, and always deliver the power I rely on for hundreds of flashes per job. Thanks Quantum, for the fine product modules!

        I bougth the MKZ3 to be modified to be used on an external battery pack and my Olympus FL-50R flash. I am a photographer for the Fire Department and I shoot a lot of night scenes and double A batteries were not cutting it in my flash.

        Fits well in flash and stays in place.

              I bought this for a DIY external battery kit and was not too keen on building a battery-insert to my SB800. The cable is clever build and can be attached safely in the SB800. The plug is a standard RCA as known from Audio equipment.

I use them with most electronics that have a four tube straight design. Works on my recorders and backup drive that use 4 AA cells. (Bet you didn't know that)

                          Cord is a bit stiff but really not an issue. If you use Quantum battery and the SB800 you need one.

                          The locking module is important.
                          The fact that you can't close the battery compartment of the flash unit is not so great.

                            This adapter works so seamlessly with my Nikon SB-800 that I don't even think about it until my shooting is over! On TTL and 1/8 settings, the ready light comes on almost instantaneously!

                              The ability to use my QB1+ battery to power my Nikon SB800 flash allows to me generally never run out of power. Getting use to the cable coming out of the flash took some getting use to, but that is a small price to pay for not worrying about having enough battery.

                                  Expensive but best option for my needs. Used to connect a Canon 540EZ to a Black Box battery. Works great.
