Bolt P12 overview

  • 1Description

Power up your on-camera flash with the P12 Compact Battery Pack from Bolt which promises faster recycle times of just one second and vastly improves battery life. This model has an integrated cable with a weather-sealed connector for select Canon flashes. This solidly built battery pack will deliver 800 flashes when operating at full power. This is possible through the use of 12 AA batteries in a quick-loading tray that can be rapidly swapped out when working on location. Users can easily determine how much power is left thanks to the implementation of power indicator lights. For protection, the pack is equipped with a thermal switch that prevents overheating and electrical surges. It comes with a soft case with a loop that can be used to attach it to a belt or for mounting to a light stand.

Compatible with:
  • Canon: Speedlite 600EX-RT, 600EX II-RT, 580EX, 580EX II, 550EX, 540EZ, 430EZ, Macro Ring Lite MR-14EX, Macro Twin Lite MT-24EX
  • Bolt: VX-710N, VX-710C, VX-760N, VX-760C

    Bolt P12 reviews

    P12 Compact Battery Pack for Canon Flashes is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lots of Power This is a robust unit with a nice belt mount or hanger for a stand. The plug fits tight in a 600EXII-RT. Battery holder latches in place nicely. If you need to fire your speed light all day with steady power this works great - 5 stars for lots of flashes in a robust package. During a recent shoot requiring air travel, I brought two compact 600EXII-RT speed lights in my carry-on bag. I used a compact umbrella and stand to provide fill during the golden hour. With a young active family I needed quick recycling time to capture every frame. With the Speedlite alone (no Bold P12), I missed about every third shot. Enough shots for a happy client, but it could have been better if 1/3 of the images had proper fill. I tested the 600EXII-RT when I got home and found recycling time at full power was 2.6 seconds. Fast and better that most speedlites but not fast enough. Metadata for the family shoot confirmed that shots with 1 second or even 2 second intervals were misses (Meta Data is only accurate to a full second). If it was a local shoot I could have used a studio flash plugged into a battery or a Profoto B1x. With the Bolt P12 attached to the Speedlite, recycle time at full power was reduced to 2.0 seconds between flashes. 23% less time but not up to the Bolt spec of 1 second between full power flashes. I reached out to the Gradus Group (maker of the Bold P12) and they provided this reply: We tested out the CBP-12C on both the 600EXII-RT and the 600EX-RT. On the 600EX-RT we were able to achieve a recycle speed of about 1 second. However, on the 600EXII-RT the recycle time was about 2 seconds, as you're experiencing. This has to do with the firmware in the 600EXII-RT which slows down the recycle rate to prevent overheating. If you need to shoot all day without loosing power - the P12 is great. If like me you want your 600EXII-RT to cycle faster at full power, you will have a limited improvement.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Pleased Thus Far... I just used it for the first time this past weekend photographing an event. �It was easy to use, and my photos were well lit. �It was great not having to change batteries while I was photographing a carnival for 2 hours. �And I took 500+ photos during that time frame and I don't think my flash missed a shot. �I wish the case also had a clip in addition to the loop and velcro wrap, as I don't usually wear a belt and it would make much easier for me to hook it onto a pocket, but I improvised and used the loop to tie it to a belt loop instead. �It wasn't a pretty look, but it did the job.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it. Used this unit for the first time at an event about a week ago and it performed like a champ. I was shooting a step and repeat and had no misfires click after click the entire evening. Used with an on-camera Canon 600 EX RT II and an ExpoImaging Flashbender. Definitely a step up from the previous version... The holder was very comfortable to wear on my belt, too. I'll be getting another one for use with a 2 light set up and my portable studio...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent I received the Bolt P12 this morning and checked the operation on my Canon 580EXII, Yongnuo YN685 and Yongnuo 565EX. I used 12 NiMh rechargeable 2650mah batteries. I��am� impressed with the very quick recycle time. The only down side is that you need a total of 16 batteries as it wont work without 4 batteries in the Speedlight.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Performance I used this unit to supplement a Yongnuo YN-560 IV for about 500 shots from 1/8 to 1/2 power. �Recycle times were quick. �While some might feel that the unit using 12 batteries is excessive, I appreciate the extra capacity.
