The Cyclone PP-310 Compact Power Pack for Portable Flashes is an affordable, reliable and lightweight power source that works with most hot shoe and handle mount flash units that have a high voltage input, such as Canon 600EX-RT, Nikon SB-910, Sony HVL-F60M and select Metz units.

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. The package includes the PP-310 battery, a multi-voltage charger, car charger, removable belt clip, user manual and neoprene shoulder strap with quick release buckles.

With most compatible flash units, an additional flash cable is required to connect the battery pack to the flash.

    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.

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

      The first thing I noticed was how little the Bolt Cyclone PP-310 weighs, yet it doesn't feel "cheap"/flimsy. It is also as uncomplicated to use as a lens cap (seriously if you find a lens cap challenging...) plug in the charger and it charges, unplug the charger plug in the cord for your flash gun and away you go. We have not, as of yet tested it thoroughly in terms of how many flashes at what power per charge. There again we don't have time to do that, much rather be shooting! Suffice to say it works and it works very well. Why only 4 stars, nothing is perfect, this comes close but a tad pricey considering it does not come with a cable for the gun.

            Bought used from B&H, Quick charged in 2 hours, use with Sony HVL-60M flash, recycles in about 1 second. Fit & finish a little cheesy. But, who's going to look at your battery pack. Good for Weddings, Events, location portrait shoots, and even studio. Recommended.

              Used tis for the first time shooting an event for an online magazine. Never ran out of flash power. In fact the recycling time was less than second.

              I have another assignment coming up and cannot wait to incorporate this in my photography once again.

                  This is the first external battery pack I have purchased and I have to say, being a petite woman, it was so comfortable and light I forgot it was on my shoulder. I shot a wedding with this on my shoulder and it never fell off nor did it disrupt me taking photos. I took 2000 photos with a Nikon SB-910 flash and the battery still have enough juice for 2000 more. I recommend this product.

                    I use this professionally with a Canon 600ex and it is awesome. Compared to my old packs the pp-310 is virtually weightless and used with flash in ettl after five hours of almost continuous use and 600 frames the "tamk" was still full. Amazing product. I will be picking up another very soon!!! Completely compatible with my Quantum Turbo cables which is a huge plus and big savings.

                      Haven't used the power supply much yet, but the Bolt Cyclone charges quick and puts out consistent power with my Quantum Q2-flashes. So far so good! Great price.

                        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
