        Unit worked fine after wires left loose were attached to the battery connector. Seem like for the money spent Norman would have caught this on final inspection before they shipped this unit out.

          Comments about Norman 810903 400 W/S Battery Assembly Kit, Radio Slave:

          I've used a Norman 400B for 12 years and love it, so bought a second one from B&H incorporating the PocketWizard. Right there you save the cost of a new radio slave, making the value even better. I've had my old Norman 400B topple off a 15' high lightstand in a wind, and although the flash tube broke, the 400B pack took some good dents but still worked. This is an old-school workhorse and I appreciate that simplicity. Only drawbacks--there is no index mark on the locking flash head cord to help align it with the corresponding receptacle on the pack, and the battery pack is heavy.
