    I needed this cord to hook up to a Quantum power pack I bought used, (came with the Nikon Connection) I bought this and it works great, doesn't fall out of the sockets or anything. My new best friend to use with my flash. Highly recommending if using flash for long periods of time.

    flash unit. Soft rubber head does not stop you from inserting it the wrong way. Used it for 2 years without a problem until I went out to shoot this rush job, while setting up I accidentally plugged the cord in the wrong direction which I did not know that was possible FRIED MY 580EX II.

          Comments about Quantum Instruments CZ2 Power Cable for Turbo Series Power Packs:

          This cord is necessary to operate your Quantum pack with your Canon speedlite. It is built very well. The coiled design allows you to freely shoot without feeling tied down. Be sure to purchase the appropriate length for your needs.

              I use this cable with my Quantum turbo 3 battery to power my canon 600ex-rt flash most of the time. My internal AA batteries last three times more than without. I use flash in wildlife photography and this cable with the T3 guarantees fast recycling times. Locked to the T3, it will not pull out during use. Cable is excellent in quality and construction.

                OK, I've been using Quantum Turbo batteries since they first came out...when? I used to go through a cable every year when I worked for a newspaper. The cables have evolved over time, though, and now they seem to last almost forever.

                I recently bought a couple of knock-off Chinese cables, hoping to save a few bucks, and got what I paid for them: not very much. So it's back to the real deal, a cable that is built to work

                      Pricey for a cable but it is well built. Fits the 580EX II and the Lumadyne Ultra Megacycler. Only complaint is the plug for the speedlite can be inserted incorrectly.

                          This cable is robustly made with enough length so that it does not get pulled out of the battery socket. The plug going into the flash is very clearly labeled as to proper orientation and seats with confidence.

                          It is good to know that in the heat of a wedding or other fast moving event one is not worrying about the cable to the battery.

                              flash unit. Soft rubber head does not stop you from inserting it the wrong way. Used it for 2 years without a problem until I went out to shoot this rush job, while setting up I accidentally plugged the cord in the wrong direction which I did not know that was possible FRIED MY 580EX II.

                                    The Turbo 3 will work with the older cables too, but this cable works with the locking feature. It works great.

                                      Connects Canon flashes to Quantum Turbo battery. I love that it plugs directly into the flash unit and doesn't have to be put into the battery socket.
