Keeps you powered for hours

This battery pack keeps me going during all day events.

Quality Product

The device oozes quality, both in its construction, and even the packaging it came with. It is well designed, and I appreciated the heavy duty cable it comes with, which gave me confidence regarding its long term durability. The manual is clearly written, and instructive. I found the product both easy to use and excellent in its execution. It is far better than the equivalent Canon product which I had been using prior to selecting this item. I love the power level indicator as well... such a helpful advantage when concerns over flash duration come towards the end of a shoot.

I use this with a Nikon SB-900. Without it, recycle time at full power is just over 2 seconds. With the Bolt, recycle time is less than 1 second at full power.

Recharge time increased!

Very happy with this product. My recycle time when the flashes are firing at full power is about a second or just under!

Great Battery Pack for Wedding Receptions

Tired of always being concerned with my Canon 600 EX-RT battery and power levels at receptions, I finally invested in battery packs for my off-camera lights. The Bolt P12's worked flawlessly, giving me extra power plus increased recycling times. I don't know why I waited so long to get these - they're a great value!

Great product, quick shipping.

If the bolt flash has an external port provision for a battery pack it is likely that it will take the Bolt P12.

Would this work the the Canon 430EX speedlight??
Asked by: Catherine
My 430EX II has a small port on the side opposite the battery compartment. The input device has to be round in shape as the hole in the port is round. That tells me that at some point, some manufacturer made something to fit into the port. Maybe it was a battery pack, or maybe it was an "extension" to trigger another flash unit. Anybody on the B&H staff know?
