        Easy to set up.
        Connection to SB-800 are quick and secure.
        Recycle to ready is obviously faster.
        Price is good.
        Action indicator LED's are a good idea.
        Wish it included a strap to go with the included means of attaching something. I'll probably just find a belt that's easy to put on and take off.
        Or perhaps I can find some form of belt clip.

          I need a battery pack the extended the life of my Batteries and encreased the speed at which the recovery time was shortend, will this pack did all that , it also helped by having a cut built in in case of pver heating. It's hot in Okla and you don't want yougear damaged by over heating. I shoot repidly and had no problem during my model shoot. This battery pack kept up with the models ever changing moods. it has been very empresive. easy to use easy hook up, however On the Nikon SB800 if you are going to shoot off camera you will need a hot shoe attachment for your pocketwizard. I do a lot of Offcamera shooting and the hotshoe attacement is a must.

          Comments about Bolt CBP-N1 Compact Battery Pack for SB800 & Other Select Nikon Flashes:

          I use this with a Nikon SB800 and eneloop rechargables. With fresh batteries, recycle is almost immediate.

          However, just like the Nikon battery unit, the Bolt and SB800 combination is NOT compatible with PocketWizard for off-camera use. I wanted this battery pack specifically for use on an off-camera light stick. However,the Bolt needs the SB800 sync port, and so does the PocketWizard. I can still use the Bolt/SB800/lightstick with Nikon's iTTL, but not with the PocketWizards.

          I'm a professional wedding photographer with over 30 years experience and I recently purchased this battery pack for my Nikon flash. It is so lightweight I forgot that I was wearing it on my belt. It recycles fast enough for me to capture rapid fire wedding reception action and lasted all night long. I plan on purchasing a second unit as backup equipment.

            I use the CBP-N1 battery pack connected to my flash for my bird photography. In use with my 500mm F:4 and my 70-200mm for flying bird pictures. This battery pack is small and convenient lite attached to my tripod, gives me the extra boost I need when I am using my flash to get that last shot. This is a excellent product to back up anyone's flash unit.

              Shooting a wedding was never so easy! Refresh rate was super fast.

                  There is a warning to not overheat your flash so be careful.

                        Hey You All,

                        I have used this unit on two jobs so far and it is great. I shoot a lot of triathlons, marathons and graduations. I used this Bolt unit at the San Francisco Bay To Breakers and it worked out very well. And a couole days later I photograp[hed guest speaker\s at a graduation ceremony at an university in the bay area. It worked swell both times. You will not regreat buying this unti. You can shoot with 4 AA batteries or 8 batteries and the case is well made. Check it out!

                            Battery hatch is a bit fiddly and the place where the cord attaches don't look real sturdy and is where it will probably fail in the long run. Works fine for now. I also have CBP-N2 for SB900. It too is ok.

                            Comments about Bolt CBP-N1 Compact Battery Pack for SB800 & Other Select Nikon Flashes:

                            This product functions just like the Nikon Version. I used 2 of these at a Charity event in a bowling alley. They worked great! I spent all day with my Sb-800's and didn't change batteries once.
