The Cyclone DR PP-400DR Dual Outlet Power Pack from Bolt features dual plugs for powering 2 flashes at the same time. It works with most on-camera flash units with high-voltage (HV) connections, including those from Nikon, Canon, Sony, Bolt, Sunpak, Quantum, Vivitar, and Metz (cables required and sold separately). The pack has a fast recycle time of approximately 1 sec and provides up to 1400 full-power flashes, depending on the flash and settings used. The Cyclone DR's flash cable ports can be locked once the cable is attached, making the connection extra secure. The unit weighs a mere 1.2 lb.

The power pack's microcontroller unit prevents overheating via integrated software and hardware protection. The included PP-400BP Cyclone DR Battery Pack is removable, allowing you to charge it while powering the Cyclone power pack with a second identical battery (sold separately). Also supplied is a 2-prong 100-240V AC charger for worldwide use. Four LED's indicate remaining battery charge; one light on means 25% or lower, two lights mean 25-50%, three mean 50-75%, and all four mean 75% or higher. Additionally, the Cyclone DR comes with an adjustable neoprene shoulder strap that has a non-slip rubber underside and a quick-release buckle. It attaches to the strap lug on the power pack. The Cyclone also features a built-in belt clip, as well as two rubberized feet for stability.

      Lots of Juice

      By JZ

      from Posen,IL

      Comments about Bolt Cyclone DR PP-400DR Dual Outlet Power Pack:

      I shot many photos and I havent recharged it.
      I can charge my iPhone with the usb adapter.
      This would be a great solution for long shoots and if you use something like the camranger. You have a portable charging station.

      I can also use this with my nikon SB-910 with the correct cable. This will be great when I want TTL and HSS.
      While the Bolt VB-22 can do HSS it would use the speedlight when I'm doing events.

        I am so blessed to find this product in B&H. This is a battery pack I always looking for. It's just powers my battery pack inside my flash quick and it's let me to work with no worries during photography job.
        And the only thing about it that I wish to come with it like the other battery pack, it's just the cable.

              Used this for several shoots I recently had at some car dealerships, shot mostly inside shots using my 580EXII on my Canon DX1, Bolt battery pack working GREAT. SHot over 1800 pictures, have not recharged it and still a little over 1/2 charged. And B&H ALWAYS on top of their game, why I have switched from Buying from [@]. GREAT customer Service! Thanks

                To power VB-22 Bare-Bulb Flash by Bolt for own location photo shoots. One charge allows you to shoot all day without having to stop and change battries. It is light and compact with and excellent carring strap. Will also power speed lights from Nikon and Canon with the right power cables. Very fast recharge time.

                      It is a good product but it is not coming with the cable to attach your flash
                      That needs to be purchased separate
                      PS it can be find on other sites for less money at it is working good even if it not exactly like the one it is required.

                      Comments about Bolt Cyclone DR PP-400DR Dual Outlet Power Pack:

                      I just picked this up and found that is a great addition to my camera. The unit so far works great and after 500 flash on auto TTL mode the battery is still full. I can't wait to use this for a wedding where my standard external AA battery pack would run out of juice when you need it most. I'm hoping this unit would resolve this.

                      Plus about the unit is that you can buy a backup battery and charge the other battery without the need of the main circuitry portion on top.

                      The only minus is that the unit is kinda big on the hip. But I'm willing to deal with that over AA batteries.

                        I've been using 2 Quantum Turbo batteries to power my speedlights when shooting weddings and events. While they are very dependable, they are getting old and are heavy. I saw the Bolt Cyclone on sale and got the 400 DR Dual Outlet Power Pack and an extra battery for about the same cost as a Quantum Turbo. The advantages have been the reduced weight and the fact that these are Li-ion batteries, so there is no concern about "memory".

                          Well spent $$$ for this Cyclone. I covered a wedding and it lasted for the entire event with no recharging needed!!! I believe I took about 800-1000 images. This battery pack has so much juice, I turned my flash into a strobe with the refresh rate. Great product!

                            I have been shooting weddings and events for some time now and had been using two Quantum Turbo batteries to power my flashes. While the Quantum batteries are very dependable and long lasting, they are heavy and are getting old. When I saw the sale price on these batteries, I liked the fact that they were lithium ion and that I could get the power pack along with an extra battery for around the same price as a Quantum turbo. I took the chance and have been very impressed so far.

                            Picked this up as a Christmas gift to myself, was a purchase for a future time until it went on sale and couldn't pass it up. (Saved 150 bucks!) It has two outlets so I can run two of my 600 EX RT flash units. I also picked up the optional USB adapter which has already been a very useful accessory, keeping some of my other equipment charged while on outdoor locations. It makes for very fast recycle times even with both flashes attached.

                            Use this product for long hours on my belt clip and due to its lightweight makes it a comfort to use.

                              The Cyclone 400DR Power pack, I expect to be using with my SB900 Nikon flash, for events to on location portraits using the SB strobes.

                              The first notesable view of the pack was the compack size and after doing a few test flash pops the recycle time to be very fast.

                              I have a Chamber annual meeting coming up with very important photos to be make and I am counting on the Bolt Cyclone to do the job all evening.

                                When using this I never knew it was on my belt it light weight unnoticeable and lasted all day at the wedding never went below full charge on the leds I shot about 1000 shots

                                not so great is the plug in for a camera flash on the right side it plugs in funny and pulls wiered when shooting it needs to have a right side and left side plug to fix this so it would be better
