question

I want to use this with either an SB910 or SB5000 - which speedlight would be less prone to overheating with this battery pack?
Asked by: Diego
Hi unfortunately this pack doesnt work with my SB 5000, it works great with the 910 or the 900 and I have no problems with it, the 5000 is a great flash. But is very temperamental Ive had it in for repairs two times in a row and also sadly to say I have his battery pack into Nikon to be fixed right after I bought it. It is working perfectly now though

question

Does the SD-9 Battery Pack work with the new Nikon SB-5000 flash?
Asked by: Matthew
Yes it should according to the Nikon USA website. When in doubt, always go to the Nikon site, find the product you're looking for and click on the compatibility tab. I haven't tried it with a SB-5000 only used it with SB-900 and SB-910, works great on both.

question

Will this unit work with the Nikon SB 700 flash?
Asked by: David S.
No, the SD-9 battery pack will not work with the SB 700. The SB 700 needs batteries inserted to have power. It does not have any ports to attach any battery packs. Having said that, I am still happy I purchased the SB 700 because it is smaller and easier to pack. Additionally, after working for an extended time, you'll appreciate the lesser weight of the SB 700 (as compared to the 910).
