    Quantum Instruments 860190 reviews

    QB1 + (6V) Battery is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 32.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Quantum service is no value I own 3 QB 1+ and 1 QB 9v and I think the quality is quite good. Their service department on the other hand is way over priced. Remember these are expendable products. They won't last forever no matter how you use them. So when it comes time to have them serviced it would be nice not to feel like your equipment is being held for ransom.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Throw Away Those Double A's I've used a QB1+ for years now. Very reliable and Quantum service is very helpful. This battery recycles much faster than AA batteries and usually lasts me a good 12 hours during wedding photography.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth Buying I put this off for awhile, but now that I have it I'm glad. - Faster recycling, from 4-6secs down to 2-3 secs and that makes a big difference when working with your subject. - I put two Vivitar 285HVs on this unit, mounted high and low on a light stand, w/33 umbrellas and it makes a great full-figure model light. - I recommend two of these, instead of the turbo, so you have a backup. If you buy the larger turbo and it goes out, you have nothing; this is unacceptable at a wedding or event. - Last note, the newer MB style connectors, which replace the 4-AA batteries, it locks well and does not move. Yes, the battery door does not close, but the main thing is that it locks and does not move, I don't mind the battery compartment does not look pretty, nobody cares.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Battery! I've owned several. This is a great battery. I've been using Quantum batteries for years and this is my second 1+. I've already replaced the cell twice in the old one and would do it again only if the case wasn't falling apart from thousands of usages. So I broke down and bought a new one and it's great to get back the lightning fast recycling and over 500 flashes per charge.
    Date published: 2014-12-18
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Would definitely buy this product again I have relied on this product exclusively for powering my Vivitar and Canon flashes for many years, and it has yet to let me down. Exceptionally reliable during long shooting sessions, such as weddings, when swapping out AA's is impractical, and quick recycle time is essential. Not terribly heavy or bulky, either.
    Date published: 2008-06-19
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Battery Using a Quantum Battery 1+, I shot 400+ photos in a dark Masonic Lodge. Battery worked like a champ. Only problem was recycle time between shots. Not sure if it was the flash or the battery causing the delay. Flash head did get warm, so I believe I was over taxing the flash. I still strongly recommend this product. If you are looking at doing similar session, I'd recommend the Turbo model....
    Date published: 2010-09-16
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Battery Pack! I purchased this battery to speed up my down time between photos. I went from a 10-12 sec delay with AAA batteries to a 1-2 second delay. I could not be happier!
    Date published: 2011-07-07
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent, as always I use this product to power the flash attachment for my camera. It holds a charge for a great length of time.... not certain how many, but enough that I can shoot a wedding and reception with it. Lightweight, doesn't take up much area in the camera bag. This is the third QB1 I've owned over the years as they do tend to expire... I've been very please with each.
