        Comments about Metz B-46 NiMH Battery Cluster Kit:

        Used this Universal Charger and Battery Cluster to replace a missing charger adapter for my CL45-1 Metz flash. But thought it would also work to charge the original battery cluster too. It doesn't. But am happy to have my CL45-1 back online!

          Comments about Metz B-46 NiMH Battery Cluster Kit:

          The device comes preloaded with 6 Nickel Metal Hydride AA batteries that outlive NiCads. That's a plus from the onset, my experience with NiCads is less than stellar. I like the idea that the MiMH batteries give more flashes than alkalines;although I have yet to shoot long enough in one session to test that feature. So far I like it just fine, I won't have to corner the market on AA's any longer, just keep a spare battery all loaded in case I exhaust the NiMH pack. It comes with adapters so you should be able to charge it anywhere they have electricity.

              Perfect upgrade for older Metz 45 handle strobes. A useful feature is the ability to recharge while the cluster is installed in the handle, no need to remove it.

                This battery pack is to replace my old NiCad batteries on a 45-CL-1 flash.
                Provide a very fast recycling time, around 5 to 7s in manual mode.

                  This NiMh battery replaced the original NiCAd battery in my Metz 45 CL-4. Wow, great difference. Lot of power for a long time and no memory effect.

                  Comments about Metz B-46 NiMH Battery Cluster Kit:

                  For the past few years I've been loading my Metz 45 with everything from cheap-o AA's to the top of the line Energizers but was most always disappointed in the life-span of the batterys.
                  Since purchasing this battery cluster, I've had more than enough power to handle the tasks of the day and not suffer elongated recycle times.
                  As well, purchasing this set is consideably less expensisve than purchasing the battery cluster separate from the (US/Canadian) charger.
