Quantum Instruments Turbo SC Reviews

Terrible, and its more expensive sibling is just as bad

Originally I bought the Turbo SC and it didn't last long. So I bought the more expensive one which only lasted about two years. Never again!

I have been using these for years now with complete satisfaction. �When B&H sent me a on sale email, I just bought another one (i now have 3). �I use these for commercial and magazine assignments along with personal projects, therefore, they see nearly daly use. �My older ones are around 5 years old and still holding charge like new. �These are defiantly worth the cost and them some.

Good deal at the sale price

This is a nice to have add on to your flash devices. It is expensive and somewhat heavy to carry around. There is no doubt that it does allow for far faster triggering and that alone maybe enough for you. It seems to me that a LI battery similar to the extra power supplies you can purchase to your phone or tablet and with which you can even jump start your car, would have been a better choice for the type of battery.

Works Great! Fast Charge - lots of flashes!!! So light!

I have used the older, bigger, heavier version for years and had 3 of them - they worked great for a while then got to where they didn't hold their charge. They were heavy but easily portable -- this little pack is SUPER LIGHT and WORKS SO GREAT! Had a graduation ceremony to photograph - wireless, cordless, with my qflash -- still had tons of power left over for another shoot. So happy with it!

not a stranger to quantum packs. I've been using them for over thirty years. I'm glad to see they are still well made and reliable.

I have Quantum flashes and batteries that are going on 30 years old and they still work great. When I have a problem, getting them repaired is a breeze.

The Service was great.
