The Nissin PS 8 Power Pack is a dedicated high voltage battery designed to maximize the performance of a Canon shoe-mount flash unit. The PS 8 can provide up to 550 full-power flashes on a single charge and will shorten the recharge rate to between 0.5-0.7 seconds. This ensures that during long shoots you will not miss a single moment.

The PS 8 can support up to two on-camera flash units at once, meaning that fewer items need to be packed for a shoot. Also, you can regulate the power output to your needs. This keeps you from wasting battery power from damaging your flash.

Additionally, the circuitry of the power pack has been redesigned for better heat reduction than older models and has a high-strength plastic housing to cut down on weight. Combine this with the belt clip or included strap and it can be easily carried while shooting. Also included are a power supply cable, battery pack charger, and soft case with rainproof cover.

The LED light changes from green at full charge to red when power drops below 30% and blinks when the battery is almost completely depleted
Quick-loading battery cartridge will recharge in 4 hours and will provide approximately 500 charge/discharge cycles
USB power socket with 5VDC output can be used as back-up power for devices like smartphones and tablets

    PS 8 Power Pack for Canon Flashes is rated 3.2 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from There are better powerpacks on this site Though the Nissin costs $50 more than the Interfit Strobie, it comes with an included pigtail cable to connect the power pack to the flash (the Strobie cable is an additional $20). The Nissin PS 8 is similar to the Strobie. Similar, but the Strobie is far better. The Strobie has a cable to the Speedlite which locks in place on the power pack. This is not the case with the Nissin, where the cable connects with only a 3/8 intersection between the male and female connectors, no lock; it's very easily pulled out...and you won't know it until your flash expends its AA batteries.Also, the Strobie is a Lithium ion battery, with longer life, no memory and a 4,500 mAh capacity, which will fire your lite 1800 times on one charge. The Nissin is a Ni-MH battery, with only 3,000 mAh, and 500 flashes. The Strobie is also 4 oz lighter than the Nissin. Both recharge the flash in less than a second, and I've tested both.All in all, the easy disconnect of the cable was the deal-changer here, and the other specs are gravy. I can't imagine using 1800 flashes in a day, but can imagine shooting 500 and having to carry a separate Nissin battery cartridge. Easier not to worry with the Strobie. And you save $50. However, you have to spend $$for the Strobie cable; the Nissin has one included.I returned the Nissin and got the Strobie.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing Only one shoot with this pack so far. I was using it to control 2 speedlites for evening fill flash. Most shots were very low power. After about 100 shots it was significantly drained and very slow. I'm going to recharge and hope for better results next time.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eliminates my problems!!! I have several photographers using Canon on camera flashes. Some of those photographers don't pay close enough attention to everything that they should be at times. AA batteries die frequently at our shoots and images without flash fill occur frequently and no one notices. This unit lasts all day without missing a flash and saves us from providing poor images to our client. It is a great solution to a small but important problem.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product This was a replacement for one I'd broken. I'm a professional photographer and wouldn't shoot a major event (requiring strobe) without the Nissin power pack. It delivers amazingly fast recycles and allows you to set the amount of power per cycle. I actually bought two just so I wouldn't be without one in case I broke another.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not very durable! I bought this about a month ago. When I take < 300 shots with the Di700a, the LED starts to blink in red (BATTERY LOWER THAN 30%). So I think the battery capacity is far more less then it mention on its offical webpage (500 shots with FULL POWER! ) ???
