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 Nikon 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.

  • Nikon: Speedlight SB-910, SB-900, SB-5000

    Bolt P12 reviews

    P12 Compact Battery Pack for Nikon Flashes is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprisingly Great Battery Pack I shoot with a Nikon SB-900 (Canon 580EX equivalent) and like most people, I want battery power that can last and that can give me the fastest possible recycle times. This unit delivers in both areas. Lots of power. Never had to think about changing batteries. Recycle times are excellent at full power and once you drop down to anything below full, recycle time is almost instantaneous. The flash kept up with me, even in some fast paced scenarios and as long as you're conscious of the thermal protection, you can shoot in short bursts or capture a quick series of images without worrying about the flash or battery protection kicking in. As a matter of fact, even when my flash was beeping and telling me it needed a rest, the battery pack was still just chugging away. I actually did a pop test just to see what the exact battery life is like with my SB-900. I got 702 full power pops. Pretty darn good, and there is really never a time where I'm shooting a full day at full power. It's always varying, and at times, it's very low, so I would expect that the 702 will jump considerably up in real world use. I don't have anything negative to say about this battery pack. It's well made, works well, has an accurate fuel gauge, it's as compact and light as it can be considering you're carrying 12 AA batteries. I definitely recommend this pack. Can't beat it for the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very easy to work with I purchased two of these for use with my newer Nikon SB-5000 flash units as they provide faster recycling time which is important when shooting sports.� So far, so good.� Seem well made.� Easy to get batteries in and out. Easy to change batteries.� Lasts a fairly long time on a full charge.� Heavy duty cord.� Useful case with attachment options built-in.� Better than the smaller units for not much more.� Overall, nicer than the OEM equivalent.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots of Zap from Bolt This new and improved Bolt battery pack continues a long experience of excellent flash accessories. I still own two of the original versions, each allowing me to photograph an entire wedding without having to change any batteries! This updated version allows me to check the battery pack status visually via display on the side...not that I ever worry about the battery not being fully capable. But it's a nice feature for those who might be worried about its ability to last.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mission Accomplish The Bolt P-12 Compact Battery Pack is a piece of equipment I won’t leave home without. The stylish soft case that it comes with slips on to my belt with ease and portability. It's designed to make my speed light recycle faster and to give me battery power to last the night. The P-12 has accomplished this mission every time. This pack is great for event & wedding photographers and a must-have piece of equipment. I'm really pleased with the performance of the Bolt P-12.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Meet My Needs This battery pack increased recycling time on my Nikon Flashes, 12 AA batteries provided enough power for a demanding event. It will be more convenient to have a secondary battery tray for faster battery swapping.
