    Not many photo stores carry this battery, thank goodness B&H Camera carry both the Dry Fit & Nicad. Ihave used Metz60CT-1 for over 22 years of doing weddings and this battery will do 2 six  hour weddings without me turning the battery off. Actually I figure I could possibly do three without charging it. Battery takes 6 hours to fully charge and is very portable. Would not trade my Metz 60CT-1 for any other flash system. I hope B&H will continue to carry both the Dry Fit & Nicad for the Metz 60CT-1 Flash unit

    I realize this is probably not the most popular thing to purchase nowadays, but I think this one sat on B + H's shelf too long. It doesn't seem to have a kick to it. It's recycle time is super slow. I will probably send it back.

        I've been using my Metz 60CT4 for more years than I can count - I've got my speedlite mounted on the hotshoe as an adjunct or bounce light but Metz is the main - There's nothing that rivals its durability - it may be a tad heavy but it's tried and true and durable -- with battery power that goes the distance - and with today's high ISO settings the battery lasts even longer with the need for less power. So grateful they're still on the market -

          This battery was the last step of repairing and putting 2 working Metz60CT's back on the job. Plenty of power for a full day of shooting with enough kick to light subjects at 80 feet.

          These batteries and packs are big and bulky, and are better suited for use off-camera on a stand or tripod.

          The Metz 60-series flash units are great!

              I have used this type of battery for over 30 years now and have enjoyed it's long life span and the many, many flashes that are at my command. I use it mainly for Weddings and other event photography and it has the power to make even the largest group photos stand out clear and sharp.

              I have used these before professionally. Both Dryfit and Nicad. Unfortunately only Metz makes these batteries to use in their units. They are a bit pricy; however using my Metz 60-CT1 again it was well worth it.

                    Get it within a week after order and is black in color, (my old one is gray), Black goes well with my flash.
                    I had tested the battery in a wedding shooting and it works great. Full charge is 6.60V and will drop to 6.40V after take out from the charger for 15 minutes. If this battery is on sale in B&H, I will buy one more.

                    Long lasting I only have to replace these cores every few years they take 6 hors to charge but it will keep fireing through a wedding then the reception and then some

                    Comments about Metz 60-38 Dryfit Battery:

                    This is a replacement for my Metz 60ct-4. I was very happy to discover that I could still buy these new, and that B&H carried them. [...] I already used the new battery at a class reunion that I was covering for another photographer.
