The Quantum Instruments Turbo SC Battery Pack Kit ("S" for Slim and "C" for Compact) provides typical all-day flash shooting capacity like the standard Turbo, yet weighs less than 1 lb and fits easily in a shirt pocket. This kit includes the CKE Dedicated Module (connection cable), which allows it to connect to the Contax TLA 360 and Nikon SB-28 (European Version), SB-28DX, SB-80DX & SB-800 flash units.

State-of-the-art NiMH batteries power the Turbo SC for lightning-fast recycling times and high capacity. Despite its mini proportions, it provides up to 225 full-power flashes with Quantum's Qflash units, or 400 shoe mount flashes, on a single 1.5-hour charge. And, like all Quantum batteries, the Turbo SC features a computerized "fuel gauge" that clearly displays the amount of power remaining and monitors charging progress.

      Comments about Quantum Instruments Turbo SC Battery Pack with CKE Flash Cable:

      I just received my turbo sc and in a few test's my expectations are all met. I tested the recycle time with a 1/1 flash output with 4 AA batteries and it was pushing 18 seconds. I attached the Turbo SC and no longer than 3 seconds later I was ready to shoot my next shot at full power! Amazing. Battery life is wonderful, I can shoot outdoor in direct sunlight and not fear loosing an expression as I wait for my flash to recharge itself.

        Comments about Quantum Instruments Turbo SC Battery Pack with CKE Flash Cable:

        I use the CKE cord in combo with the Turbo SC to power my small on-camera flash units SB28, SB800.
        This allows me hundreds of shots without worries of losing battery power.
        It's really sweet having a light and maneuverable set-up when on location, especially one that recharges so quickly.
        Excellent for PR work.

            Comments about Quantum Instruments Turbo SC Battery Pack with CKE Flash Cable:

            The above review says it all. You still need rechargable batteries to run the flash heads computer but they last forever. I change the Sanyo Evelop onboard AA's after like 400 shots. The SC powers my sb800 all event long without a worry of ever running out of flash. It recharges super fast also in the rare cases I have run it low on a job.Fits perfect in the stock Nikon case also. Dont know why I wasted so much money on batterys chargers etc should of just purchased this long ago. It will pay for itself in a few years

              Comments about Quantum Instruments Turbo SC Battery Pack with CKE Flash Cable:

              After much frustration buying Energizer lithium AA batteries day after day for my Nikon SB-800 for every new photo job, I decided to stop wasting my money and the environment and bought the Turbo SC. I used it for the first time on a wedding a few days later and it was an absolutely beautiful experience - this piece of equipment instantly became a necessity in my opinion for any serious event or wedding photographer using a flash. I shot with the SB800 all day (at least 8 hours) and the charge wasn't even halfway gone, and I was getting fantastic recycle times throughout. Buy this product and I promise you will feel it was worth it by even just the first job you use it on. Also, it's a great size -- pretty small, lightweight, kept it in my pants pocket and it never bothered me.
