Recycling times vary from 1 to 1.9 seconds, and it takes about three hours to fully charge the unit with the included battery charger.

question

Does it work with the Nikon D300 and the flash speed light sb-800? And which kind of cable I will need
Asked by: Anonymous
As for working with the products you asked about, it depends on if they make a power cable to connect to them. I had to purchase power cables so it could connect from this battery to my Canon 580 flash, and my Flashpoint 360 flash.

question

Will this work for the Olympus 900 Flash
Asked by: Larry L.
Unfortunately, the Olympus FL900R lacks a high voltage input for an external battery, therefore it cannot be used with the Turbo 3.

question

I currently have 430EXll Cannon Speedlight, is the Turbo 3 Rechargeable Battery by Quantum campatable with this?
Asked by: Anonymous
Unfortunately, the Canon 430EX II is not compatible with the Quantum Turbo line of batteries. It is compatible with the QB1+ battery (B&H # QUQB1P), though. You would just need the MB5 (B&H # QUMB5). Otherwise, to use the Turbo batteries, you would need to upgrade flashes to the 580EX II or 600EX-RT.

Asked by: Anonymous
Yes, the Quantum Instruments Turbo 3 Rechargeable Battery is compatible for use with the Canon 600EX-RT Speedlite Flash. You would need to purchase the Quantum Instruments CZ2 Power Cable for Turbo Series Power Packs, B&H # QUCZ2, to connect and power the Canon 600EX-RT Speedlite Flash from the Quantum Instruments Turbo 3 Rechargeable Battery.

question

Is there a cable to make this pack work with the Nikon sb700?
Asked by: Anonymous
Being that the Nikon SB-700 doesn't have a high voltage port, the Quantum Turbo 3 will not be compatible with it. A compatible battery and cable you can use is Quantum Instruments QB1 + (6V) Battery B&H # QUQB1P and the Quantum Instruments MKZ3 Dedicated Module, B&H # QUMKZ3. Please see the images below.
