    Bolt X PP-600 reviews

    Cyclone X PP-600 Compact Power Pack for Portable Flashes is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't Like It I purchased this item because I wanted to try something DIFFERENT - I previously owned Quantum Battery Packs. Maybe I had a defective unit because it did not charge completely, and for the 75% charge that i did get, it only lasted maybe five - six full-power flashes. I returned this battery pack for yet another Quantum, and i am quite pleased with that product.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Power Without the Price This unit did just as I expected it to. It helped my SB-910 flashes keep up with my D5 while shooting at 12 frames per second. Without the unit my flash could only keep up about 4-5 shots before i started getting underexposed (no flash) frames while with this i was going to 12. My only complain is the lack of a lock to keep the cord in the unit - while not a problem for 90% of shooter's whom will put the unit on a stand and not touch it again I was using it to shoot concert photography and one time the cord was pulled out of the unit by an over zealous stage diver.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bolt Cyclone X PP-600 Compact Power Pack is a must!!! The Bolt Cyclone X PP-600 Compact Power Pack is a must have if you find yourself buying tons of batteries for your off camera flash. After using this for almost a month I have found it to recycle as fast or faster than any I have had in the past. Stop using small batteries that are great to start and by the end of a shoot it is exhausted or had to be replaced with a fresh set. The Bolt Cyclone X PP-600 Compact Power Pack seems to go on and on without signs of exhausting this compact unit. More in money but best in class for durability and charge time. This unit is small and the clip slips right on a belt on the waist. It has a short recharge time and seems to last for hundreds of pictures with a quick recycle time. This is one good unit for every photographer that is looking for more battery power for extended periods of time. Weddings, indoors shoots, special occasion events like anniversaries, Bar Mitzvahs, and those special times an extended power pack is required.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Flash Battery I had a Bolt battery for my Nikon SB900s. It ran on 8 AA batteries and worked great. My only complaint was the short length of the cable that ran from the battery to the flash. I often pulled the flash battery out of my pocket. The Bolt Cyclone uses a rechargeable lithium battery that delivers 900 full pops per charge, many more pops when each pop is less than maximum. The coiled cable can be stretched to about 9 feet. I've only tested the Bolt Cyclone so far but really like it. It will be the perfect companion when shooting weddings or events.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have! I'm a wedding photographer, and before the power pack; I'd use a lot of batteries! Now, no more battery waste; and recycle time is noticeably faster so that perfect shot is not missed. This power pack is a must have if you find yourself buying tons of batteries for your off camera flash.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Unreliable Attempted to use this several times with my Canon 600 EX-RT Speedlight flash with mixed results. The first attempt to charge the power pack failed. It never charged and was completely dead the next morning when I wanted to use it. The second time it did charge and worked for about a half hour before it went dead. The third time worked and I overheated the flash and had to let it cool down. But, the unit did work. I haven't touched it since so it's become, essentially, an expensive paper weight.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Perfect Battery The Bolt 600 Power Pack for Speed-lights is an excellent choice for portable Lighting Studios. The battery is small and compact and is easy to carry around. It has a clip to hang from your belt as well. The battery charges fast and gives hundreds of flashes on one charge.
    Date published: 2016-04-12
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Doesn't last I had this a few years and only used less than 10 times. Stopped charging and is useless now. Worked great at first and had a fast recycle time, but no good to me now.
