Upgrade from a failed knockoff

Bill, B&H Photo
2 March 2015
  • Excerpt: Like some others here, I bought this to replace a cheap knockoff. In my case a Yongnuo SF-18, which failed after a couple years and a half dozen events. I hope this does better, but I am not encouraged by the cheezy non-user-replaceable cable or the flimsy plastic clips on the battery tray. The clips are especially stressed by Low Self Discharge batteries like Eneloop and Imedion, which tend to be larger diameter than Alkalines.
  • Pros: Lightweight
  • Cons: Weak Construction

Great Battery Pack

  • Excerpt: I am a sports and event photographer and needed more power for my Canon 600 EX flash. The CP-E4 battery pack has worked out great. The fast recyling time is just what I needed. No issues.

CP-E4 Canon Battery Pack

23 February 2015
  • Excerpt: I was unhappy with the recycle time for my Canon 580 EX II flash used as daylight fill flash for bird photography. I decided to go with the Canon battery pack over the knockoffs because of quality issues and the much more expensive and powerful accessory batteries because I read reviews on how they burned up Canon flashes.
  • Pros: Easy To Pack, Easy to Use, Lightweight, Reliable, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Hard To Attach To Tripod

Canon CP-E4 battery pack

KevinB, B&H Photo
6 November 2014
  • Excerpt: Have you ever had to stop and swap out your flash batteries? Yea, me too. I know I've lost a Kodak moment or two while trying to put fresh batteries in. With a little practice you can get pretty fast at it but in the time it takes to open the battery compartment door, remove the old, find the new and insert them in the right order, shut the door and power the flash back on you could still be shooting and not missing the shot of a life time.
  • Pros: Convenient, Easy To Pack, Easy to Use, Lightweight, Reliable, Strong Construction
  • Cons: None
