Quantum Instruments Turbo SC overview

  • 1Description

The Quantum Instruments Turbo SC Battery Pack Kit ("S" for Slim and "C" for Compact) provides typical all-day flash shooting capacity like the standard Turbo, yet weighs less than 1 lb and fits easily in a shirt pocket. This kit includes the CKE Dedicated Module (connection cable), which allows it to connect to the Contax TLA 360 and Nikon SB-28 (European Version), SB-28DX, SB-80DX & SB-800 flash units.

State-of-the-art NiMH batteries power the Turbo SC for lightning-fast recycling times and high capacity. Despite its mini proportions, it provides up to 225 full-power flashes with Quantum's Qflash units, or 400 shoe mount flashes, on a single 1.5-hour charge. And, like all Quantum batteries, the Turbo SC features a computerized "fuel gauge" that clearly displays the amount of power remaining and monitors charging progress.

Quantum Instruments Turbo SC reviews

Turbo SC Battery Pack with CKE Flash Cable is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Became an instant necessity After much frustration buying Energizer lithium AA batteries day after day for my Nikon SB-800 for every new photo job, I decided to stop wasting my money and the environment and bought the Turbo SC. I used it for the first time on a wedding a few days later and it was an absolutely beautiful experience - this piece of equipment instantly became a necessity in my opinion for any serious event or wedding photographer using a flash. I shot with the SB800 all day (at least 8 hours) and the charge wasn't even halfway gone, and I was getting fantastic recycle times throughout. Buy this product and I promise you will feel it was worth it by even just the first job you use it on. Also, it's a great size -- pretty small, lightweight, kept it in my pants pocket and it never bothered me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent The above review says it all. You still need rechargable batteries to run the flash heads computer but they last forever. I change the Sanyo Evelop onboard AA's after like 400 shots. The SC powers my sb800 all event long without a worry of ever running out of flash. It recharges super fast also in the rare cases I have run it low on a job.Fits perfect in the stock Nikon case also. Dont know why I wasted so much money on batterys chargers etc should of just purchased this long ago. It will pay for itself in a few years

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality ain't cheap Say goodbye to AA batteries! Works like a champ. I can shoot all day long with full power. This is especially important when I am using it as a fill flash outdoors. It is very light weight, well worth the additional cost over it's competitors. I can add a strap (like an old camera strap; a strap is not included) but I really do not need it. The belt clip works fine. My only complain is that the strobe cable is a bit short and has pulled out of the pack when I wore on on my back. Since I use a black rapid strap, I wear the battery pack on the right, but this means the connector on the flash seems backwards...a minor annoyance.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Power for the lightweights I use the CKE cord in combo with the Turbo SC to power my small on-camera flash units SB28, SB800. This allows me hundreds of shots without worries of losing battery power. It's really sweet having a light and maneuverable set-up when on location, especially one that recharges so quickly. Excellent for PR work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Go from good to great I just received my turbo sc and in a few test's my expectations are all met. I tested the recycle time with a 1/1 flash output with 4 AA batteries and it was pushing 18 seconds. I attached the Turbo SC and no longer than 3 seconds later I was ready to shoot my next shot at full power! Amazing. Battery life is wonderful, I can shoot outdoor in direct sunlight and not fear loosing an expression as I wait for my flash to recharge itself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thirty years of quality 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.
