    Comments about Metz P76 NiMH Power Pack with Charger:

    There are two key advantages to this pack with a Metz flash system. First, since the pack provides both high voltage to the flash tube and low voltage to the control circuitry, I don't have to keep internal batteries in my flash units, which lightens the load a bit. Second, I can use the same P76 pack to power either a small 54MZ-3 hotshoe flash or a big 50MZ-5 handle-mount flash. Since I normally work with both large and small Metz flash units, having one pack that can drive any of 'em makes life easier.

      Comments about Metz P76 NiMH Power Pack with Charger:

      I just love this lighting setup. if you can't take your studio lighting with you this is the next best thing, i have 2 of them and finally worn one out, the battery is very light, and puts out strong power for the digital metz flash, no photograoher should be without one, if you do wedding inside a church this is a must have.
      thanks sherra

      Comments about Metz P76 NiMH Power Pack with Charger:

      This flash power pack is a brick 4 inches by 7 inches and weighs a ton. The specs aren't mentioned on the listing. It does make the camera with hot shoe flash mounted lighter, since batteries are not needed in the flash unit itself (your flash unit should be four AA lighter in hands). Keeping the weight at the belt line is a plus. Would not recommend using the strap since the weight would be carried higher. Just way bigger than expected.

      Why is German stuff always seem to be engineered bigger? This thing is bigger and heavier than the leica m9 I bought it for?

        Comments about Metz P76 NiMH Power Pack with Charger:

        I have only had this for about 2 weeks now and I am using this with the Mecablitz 58 AF -1 digital strobe and I could not be any happier with it. The recharge time between shots is less than 2 seconds, and I think that is just great for this product.

        This battery provides many times more flashes than the handle battery packs. After shooting over 300 flashes at an event the battery was still at 80% of a charge left.
