The Quantum Instruments CKE2 Power Cable will allow a Turbo series battery pack to power a compatible Contax, Nikon, or Nissin flash. It also has been updated with a locking feature that keeps the cord locked into Quantum Turbo 3 Battery Pack sockets, preventing the chance of it falling out while shooting. This coiled cord can be stretched out to approximately 6.0'.

This cable is compatible with the following flash units:

  • Contax: TLA360
  • Nikon: SB28 (Euro), SB28D, SB28DX, SB800, SB80DX, SB900 and SB-910
  • Nissin: Di866 for Nikon Cameras

Length Approx. 6.0' when fully stretched out.

    This cable and its connectors will stand up to a lot of abuse, which is good because cables always seem to get the worst of it. The price seems a bit high to me, but Quantum's products have been met photographers' needs so well that they have lots of pricing leverage.

    At least one review mentioned burning out strobes. All Nikon strobe instruction manuals, including that for the SB-800, specify a maximum number of shots before you need to let the flash cool down. I've kept to those constraints, and never had a problem.

    I have the Turbo SC and the only Quantum cable I could find was this one. The instructions say it works with any turbo battery but the locking mechanism is only supported with the Turbo 3. Okay, fine, BUT, when it's plugged into the Turbo SC battery it sticks out much higher than the cable that came with the Turbo SC and as such is a terrible mechanical connection and the added height will and does allow the cable to work its way out. I am trying this one:

    Paramount PM-CKE Connecting Cable for Nikon/Quantum/Lumedyne

    As an alternative because according to the picture it doesn't have the tabs.

      Comments about Quantum CKE2 Power Cable for Turbo Series Battery Packs:

      Most all of the Nikon/Canon speed lights are limited due to power. They can be used for quick fixes but not for long shoots where you need more and More often.The Quantum system just makes everything work better, faster and more dependably. Powerful lights need more than just a few AA's. It's as simple as that.

            It's nice to power my Nikon 910 Flash with my Quantum Turbo Battery. I just put a new battery in my old Quantum Turbo Battery and it all works like a charm. I get 2 second recycle times at full power and hundreds of full power flashes. The cord is also well made.

                    I wish I'd thought of this sooner. I started using my speed lights more and more and felt guilty about all the batteries I used and threw away. So I read up on how to use my Quantum turbo battery with my Nikon speed lights and with these cables it was so much easier than expected so now I don't have to use as many batteries and the recycle time is way better too.

                      This is my third cord, I hope this one last more than my Battery pack. The others broke or something happen to them but for my work having SB-800 and Quantum Battery Pack this item is just your life saver for continuos shooting and better recycle time for your flash

                        When ordering this replacement cord, I was concerned if the new locking feature would present a problem with my Turbo battery. Since I have received the CKE2 cord, I have used it three times with the Nikon 900 flash and have had no problems.

                              I have bought several of these cables previously. This one fits more tightly into the Nikon SB900 strobe than the previous ones. This means that it probably shouldn't have the problem of becoming disconnected like the others.

                                    - Locking feature is great to keep you safe from being suddenly disconnected
                                    - Long enough
                                    - you can deprnd on if you are a hard work photographer like me
                                    - Easily connected & disconnected

                                    Thanks for Quantum & B&H

                                    Price is only reason I don't rate this a full five-stars. Otherwise, the connections are sturdy and it does not feel flimsy at all compared to others I've seen. Well worth the money.

                                        I have the Turbo SC and the only Quantum cable I could find was this one. The instructions say it works with any turbo battery but the locking mechanism is only supported with the Turbo 3. Okay, fine, BUT, when it's plugged into the Turbo SC battery it sticks out much higher than the cable that came with the Turbo SC and as such is a terrible mechanical connection and the added height will and does allow the cable to work its way out. I am trying this one:

                                        Paramount PM-CKE Connecting Cable for Nikon/Quantum/Lumedyne

                                        As an alternative because according to the picture it doesn't have the tabs.

                                          Comments about Quantum CKE2 Power Cable for Turbo Series Battery Packs:

                                          The upgraded CKE2 Power Cable provides a little bit more continuity reliability for connecting the Quantum Turbo to a Nikon SB-800 speedlight.
                                          I use this on any assignment/situation that requires additional lighting.
