      When shooting events, the last thing I would have hung my photographic life on would have been in-flash batteries. My power pack was always at the ready. It still is, BUT this battery is unbelievable! It's absolutely amazing how long this thing lasts.

      I bought a Metz 76 and an additional 76-56 NiMH a short while ago . One of the batteries lasted for one wedding shoot and will not hold a charge. The second battery lasted for two weddings and now will not charge at all. Save yourself a whole lot of trouble and buy a Quantum product!!!

        I'm a semi pro and use the Metz 76 flash. At a freinds wedding my flash battery ran out 3/4 through wedding. This purchase is a spare so I can keep using my flash during long events

              This will last you a long time if charged and used correctly. Worth the investment in price. Just make sure it always has a full charge and you are good to go!

                      Original battery that came with this flash was junk. Metz would not replace it. This battery works much better but comes at a ridiculous price.

                        The Metz 70MZ-5 came with a NiCd battery. It's charged long and didn't last. Couldn't find this battery in my country for a reasonable price so I ordered it from B&H and it made the difference. Charges much quicker and last much longer. Use it for wedding photography.

                              The battery is the only choice for the Metz 76 flash. I bought 2 spares when I first had the flash and they appeared to work fine. I found out later that these 2 batteries give a low battery signal after about 10 or 20 flashes. I didn't use these batteries often and the original battery worked fine. It took me a long time to discover this was a bad lot of batteries. The funny thing is they appear to give close to the full number of flashes on a charge, just flashing low battery the whole time. Anyway, fully check out the battery when you get it. I've since bought another and it works fine.
