    I love my PocketWizard MiniTT1 / FlexTT5 setup. The only real nit I've ever had to pick with the system is the hard-to-find-in-a-pinch CR2450 button battery for the MiniTT1. I always carry spares with me, but the new power cable from PW will give me that extra peace of mind, and save me changing the battery at an inconvenient moment. (And let's be honest, most of the time, when you need to change the battery, it's an inconvenient moment - clients waiting on you, missing opportunities, etc.).

    My plan is to use it during events so that I don't have to worry about the CR2450 when I don't have time to stop and change batteries.

    It's a little pricey, but consistent with most accessories from PocketWizard.

    I did have to update the firmware on all my PocketWizards (MiniTT1 and FlexTT5 units) in order to use this cable. Know that in advance of actually needing to use the cable, and do it now since you can't readily update the firmware in the field.

    Don't mistake this for the N90M-ACC-ND

    I mistakenly bought the PW-DC-N10 power cable thinking it was the N90M-ACC-ND pre-trigger cable. This was an error on my part, but it is an easy mistake to make if you aren't that familiar...Read complete review

    I mistakenly bought the PW-DC-N10 power cable thinking it was the N90M-ACC-ND pre-trigger cable. This was an error on my part, but it is an easy mistake to make if you aren't that familiar with the cable as they look quite similar.

    As far the actual PW-DC-N10 cable, it works well and powers the pocket wizard without needing batteries, but is slightly hard to plug in on the pocket wizard Plus iii as the usb port is beneath the pocket wizard. If that's what you're looking for, then this product is great. Unfortunately, it wasn't what I was trying to buy (hence only 3 stars);

      Comments about PocketWizard PW-DC-N10 Nikon DSLR Power Cable for MiniTT1 and Plus III Transmitters:

      I tend to leave my Mini TT1 on when I am done with it. This means constantly killing my battery and having to go get new ones. This product pays for itself by eliminating the need to have batteries for the mini to function. It takes little time to connect when needed, and doesn't hamper the ability of the camera at all. Once I discovered this item existed, it was a no brainer to buy it.

        product use allows power to be drawn from camera saving the button cell from draining the only drawback is the power will always be on when plugged in even if the mini is turned off. Suggestion of disconnecting cable from mini to stop drain when not in use

          Battery Not Needed

          Comments about PocketWizard PW-DC-N10 Nikon DSLR Power Cable for MiniTT1 and Plus III Transmitters:

          The Pocketwizard PW-DC-n-10 is an essential accessory for wireless remote triggering. I am all for anything that will decrease my need for batteries - this cable does just that. Anyone using the Pocketwizard Mini needs this cable.

            A well-made, simple cable to supply power to my MiniTT1, dramatically lessening the load on the coin-battery. The only drawback is that the 10-pin port is obviously used now, so it is not available for other purposes--e.g., a cable shutter-release function, or a GPS connection.

                      It's a cable. The problem battery in the mini TT does have a short life, and this cable is a good backup to have in the bag.

                                Instead of worrying about batteries running out in a 'Wizard this takes power from the camera. Can power indefinitely if camera is then attached to an external power supply...

                                    Make sure you test this thing before you leave for a job. I had to update the firmware (which is simple).

                                      If you have the wonderful MiniTT1 you need to have this well engineered power cable in your bag. It is cheap insurance against losing power during a shoot and not having a spare "coin-type" battery with you out in the field.
                                      This cord ingeniously allows you to power your MiniTT1 from your Nikon's 10-pin terminal with minimal power draw. It allows your MiniTT1 to remain powered even with your camera turned off so that you don't lose the sync with your flashes if you inadvertently turn your camera off mid shoot.

                                        I wish they came out with this years ago. I always forget to buy those weird size batteries and sometimes I used to forget to turn my flex mini off and it would drain the battery. That's the worst in the middle of shoot and you have no triggered flashes. This doesn't drain my camera battery either, even if it did I wouldn't care. Just unplug it when you're not using it. Highly recommend.
