Building on the success of the PP-300, the PP-310 upgrades the original Ni-MH battery to Li-Ion and gives you 100 more full power flashes for a total of 500 on a 2-hour charge. Remaining power can be monitored via four LED indicators. Typical recycling time is approximately 1 second. The PP-310 is compatible with Quantum, Lumedyne, Dynalite and Impact battery pack systems and accessories.

        Comments about Bolt Cyclone PP-310 Compact Power Pack for Portable Flashes:

        I bought two of theses so I could power two flash heads. I love them. They keep my AA batteries powered up so I don't have to keep changing them. I hated to be on location and have to change them all the time. These work great!

              Had some problems first time using when balancing daylight and flash fill.
              Mis-firing quite a lot. Had to abandon use during outdoor portrait session and rely on Canon 580EX AA's. Will continue to test but not on client session for sure.
              Will update results :o(
              I hope I didn't make a mistake not going with Quantum.

                      For large, all day events, I always bring two external battery packs. I used to have a Quantum and a Bolt, now I have two Bolts. I find that they are cheaper, last longer, and give a quicker recharge than the Quantum.

                      I am using this Cyclone PP-310 to power either one of my Canon 600EX-RT's or my ol' faithful Q-Flash depending on the assignment. I haven't done any hard testing yet, but it seems to be as promised.. fast charge, powers the Q-Flash and 600's easily and recycle time is very quick even at full power. I was slightly disappointed to see that the power button and the reflective disc that contains the power LED's were rather loose when it arrived. Now being that the device is designed the way it is.. it was easy enough to remove the 4 screws that hold the top down and fix that problem myself.. but if capacitors, wires and warranties make you break out in a cold sweat, don't bother.. but honestly it's SUCH an easy fix I only held back one star for it. It's worth every penny to DIY and it only took me 2 minutes and hopefully it was an anomaly anyway so none of you will have to bother.

                        Have only used a few times thus far; maybe a hundred photos; still has full charge (as indicated by charge status lights); came fully charged and have not had to recharge. Fast cycle time. Clip tightly secures to belt; so much so that it may be a little difficult to remove from belt. Have been very satisfied with its performance
