Nikon 4762 overview

  • 1Description

The SD-800 adds a fifth AA battery to the flash.  The SB-800 is designed to operate upon 6 volts of power, which is the output of 4 alkaline batteries.  NiMh batteries, however, have a lower specified voltage which ideally requires 5 units to deliver ideal voltage to the SB-800.

Nikon 4762 reviews

SD-800 Extra Battery Holder is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 48.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Correction to item description The purpose of this holder is not to extend the capacity by 20% as stated by the website. Alkaline batteries have a nominal voltage of 1.5v per cell, since the batteries are in series in the flash, that makes the total voltage to the flash 6v w/ alkalines, which is the voltage this flash is designed to run with. Rechargeable batteries (NiMH, NICD, etc.) have a nominal voltage of 1.2v per cell, which means that you have to use 5 of them instead of 4 to get the 6 volts total that the flash wants. Using this holder increases the voltage, not the capacity. The capacity (longevity) will be a function of the cells used (i.e. 2500mah, 2000 mah, etc.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have battery holder for SB-800 I have a Nikon Flash SB-800 for several years, just for family shoot fill flash, until last week, a friend suggested this fifth battery holder to the SB-800, for shooting my daughter graduation ceremony, after more than 400 shots of whole morning, friends and families, continue to dinner party, my flash keep fire full power without a delay of recycle time, make this SB-800 even better than I though, just use one set of five Duracell AA batteries. I recommend all SB-800 owners get this piece of extra holder, it may usefull in some occasion. But the new SB-910 doesn't have this option, so I am sure I will keep this SB-800 for sometime without upgrade it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clever feature for the SB800 This was a clever feature for the SB800. I'm surprised that Nikon doesn't have this on their current speedlights. It takes up little space but makes a noticeable difference in the recycle times. It may not have the extra oomph of an external battery pack but having just this one in addition to the 4 AA already in the unit makes quite a difference. I guess it's a good compromise between a bulky and cumbersome battery pack with cords and just having only 4 AA's in the flash. I bought a second one so when I change out the first set of five, all I do is slide this second one with a battery loaded onto the flash saving time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved me a $185 Couldn't get my Nikon SB-800 Flash to power up until I removed the extra batter holder. �Checked with authorized Nikon repair shop and it was quoted as a $200 repair. �Decided to experiment by trying to power up the flash without the extra batter holder. �It worked fine. �So I then ordered a new SD-800 holder for my flash unit for $15. �When I received the new one from B&H, the flash worked fine with the extra battery holder installed. So, didn't need to send it in for repair and saved $185. �Happy Camper!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works as advertised ... I think The cycle time on my SB-800 wasn't quick enough, so I bought this and the cycle time did get shorter. However, I can't be sure if it's the SD-800 battery holder or the new Eneloop 1900 mAh rechargeables that I put in for the first time at the same time I first tried this new battery holder. It could be the holder with its higher capacity or the new batteries (I had been using alkalines), or a combination of both. Hope this makes sense.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't and Wouldn't do without!!! I mostly shoot weddings and so a quick recycle time is critical! And this extra battery attachment gives me exactly that. I've also heard that this is one reason that the sb-800 was discontinued because the flash doesn't work to well unless you have this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Killing two birds with one stone. I broke the battery door on my Nikon SB-800 speed light accidently. Instead of buying a rplacement door I just went ahead an bought the SD-800 extra battery holder for it. It gave me double the benefit, door as well as extra power. I could not help to say, I killed two birds with one stone. I love it. Thank you Nikon and thank you B&H for for this great solution at great price. Nasser The Fightmaster

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most of all, available I had an older flash unit, and the jump battery that could be used with it. Batteries went bad and ruined the little unit, but the flash was still good. The price of a new one was reasonable, saving the flash unit which would have been expensive to replace. I was very pleased to find the little unit was still available and at a good price. Unit saved the day arriving quickly and in good shape.
