Lumedyne VHUX overview

  • 1Description

The Lumedyne Ultra Megacycler generates the high voltage necessary to recycle most shoe or handle mount flashes very quickly and produce hundreds of full power flashes per charge.

Cables for connection to the Ultra Megacycler are available separately for many shoe and handle mount flashes on the market today.

Cyclers are compatible with Lumedyne and Paramount HV Cables or Quantum high voltage cables for their Turbo/(Z).
Computerized flashes still use the internal AA batteries to power the internal computer, LCD screen and power reflector but the Cycler does most of the hard work (recycling the flash) so the AA's will last much longer.
Choose a Trickle or Quick Charger from Lumedyne if you don't already own one. The Cyclers charge with the same Chargers that fit the rest of the Lumedyne System (excluding the #CU1U or #018 Ultra Charger that only fits modular batteries)

    Lumedyne VHUX reviews

    HV Ultra Megacycler for Flashes - Extra Fast is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from good, Better, BEST Nothing is worse than having a photo job and looking at the battery indicator showing low and the bride is walking in the door. What can I say! Alkaline batteries good, rechargable batteries Better, external power supply BEST. I use the lumedyne pack to help power a Nikon SB-900 fired remotely or on the camera. It allows for faster recycle time well beyond the capability of the flash unit's 4 batteries. P.S. Remember, you get what you pay for. Price is a factor but when your flash unit will not fire because of low batteries, the excuses pale to a bride's response when she realizes you did not get a critical Photo on her very important event!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best I've had about a dozen different canon and quantum battery packs that always left me wondering if they were doing anything. This pack is the opposite. I need fast full-power flashes one after the other. The only problem is that this recycles so fast that my canon flashes heat up and slow themselves down. But that is not the fault of the battery. When you have a question about this pack, the OWNER of the company replies to your email. I finally paired this with a Nissin MG8000 extreme and yesterday shot 500 full power flashes with the combo - with the last shot having the same 1/3 second recycle time as the first. Seriously a GREAT GREAT GREAT product.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Extra fast (and extra pricey) Work as advertised. I now have four of these batteries to power four 580EX II speedlites. AA batteries give a speedlite a 3 second recycle at full power... the Ultra Megacycler drops that time to one second or so. Makes a slight recycle whine (that the 580EX II does not). Batteries did arrive exhausted suggesting that they had not been charged monthly as the directions indicate is needed for best lifespan. Wish it came with a strap. Otherwise no complaints - except - for the incredible !*&^#$%@ high price!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saving money on batteries- At last I have found a product that keeps my flash firing all night and saving the environment from all those batteries I seemed to have collected. Never had much luck with rechargeable batteries as there is always one that seems to upset the system!
