    Canon CP-E4N Reviews

    CP-E4N Compact Battery Pack is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 13.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent addition to a 600EX-RT II This pack is terrific, although I think a bit pricey. The CP-E4N is required for fast charging with the II series Speedlites; the older CP-E4 and similar units work with the new flashes, but deliver very slow recycle times. The CP-E4N cycles very quickly. I also like the build quality, and I think the case design is superior to older packs. If you want fast, reliable cycling and lots of flashes/battery set, I highly recommend this unit. I just wish it wasn't so darn expensive.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple device. Works as it should I needed to make sure that my EX 600EX-RT Speedlite remained ready to fire while on the other side of the room when radio synced with the camera on the strobe and it works everytime with battery life to spare at the end of a long assignment. Very light weight since it really just holds 8 AA batteries to boost the ones in the strobe itself, but it does the job

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must Accessory (w 600EX-RT II) for an Event Photographer I photograph events twice a year. At those events, I now use the CP-E4N with a Speedlite 600EX-RT II. I bought the CP-E4N to shorten the recycle time between flashes and to increase the number of flashes between battery replacement. The CP-E4N makes an amazing difference. The external battery pack dramatically reduces the recycle time between flashes and more than doubles the number of flashes before I need to replace the batteries. I use rechargeable batteries to reduce the recycle time even further. The CP-4N fits in my front dress shirt pocket, which it where I like to put it. I could also put it my on my belt. A Canon Learning Center Article rates the 600EX-RT II with and without the CP-E4N as follows: Recycle Time, at full 1/1 manual power: Speedlite 600EX II RT alone approx. 5.5 seconds (alkaline AAs); 3.5 sec. (Ni-MH) 600EX II-RT plus CP-E4N approx. 1.8 seconds (alkaline AAs); 1.2 sec. (Ni-MH) The Canon Learning Center Article explains: Four working and functional AA-size batteries are always required within a Canon speedlite, even when an external battery pack is attached . . . . The four internal batteries are combining with the external battery pack to recycle the flash after each shot is taken . . . . The four internal batteries will often be depleted before those in an external battery pack. High-volume flash shooters (wedding shooters, etc.) may find that theyre changing the four internal batteries in the middle of a shooting event, even though those in the external pack are still performing OK. Canon recommends that that the same type of batteries be used in both the Speedlite and external battery pack.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expensive but worth it I use these primarily for weddings, engagement sessions, events, and just about any other time I'm pushing my Canon 600 series speedlites hard. Operation is extremely simple, you put batteries in, plug it in, and the unit automatically turns on and off with your flash. I really feel the price is outrageous for a simple AA battery pack with some temperature sensing features. That said, I'm sticking Canon OEM for this type of purchase because I'm not going to risk burning up a $570 600EXII-RT speedlite with a third party unit. The included case is of limited utility, it works fine if you're mounting on a belt loop, but really won't help with mounting any other way. Fortunately, they include a nice 1/4-20 screw through the middle of the unit. I use this to mount to a Matthews Super Mafer Clamp to affix the battery pack to light stands, tripod legs, etc. I find this configuration to be ideal and highly recommend it if you are using this for off-camera speedlite work.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Non-stop Flash power previously I had an off-brand external unit that was unreliable. This Canon unit is a powerhouse that supplies reliable non-stop flash power when needed.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Keep your Speedlight Firing Very well made. Works great and fits well in my Think Tank Flash holder too. Comes with a holder for the battery pack to attach to your strap or belt. Will golf it on a light stand too. I like it enough to give it 5 stars but the high price keeps me to only giving it 4. If you want genuine Canon this is it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from this is the one I was concerned about the problem with the pins on the cheaper model. No problems here.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great piece of kit Like all things Canon, this is a great piece of kit. Not cheap, but well made and a pleasure to own. I bought it for a run and gun shoot documenting a day in the life of a medical student and her professor. The pack reduced recycle times on my Canon Speedlite and made me feel like I was not going to run out of battery power. If you need this for a job, definitely buy it. If you don't need it for an assignment, I would wait.
