Can anyone suggest the best batteries to get the best out of the flash?

Cheers
Chris


Hello Chris,

Check out the link to the forum below about batteries. A lot of people prefer Eneloop batteries.

I have already read your article, and understand that the low internal discharge bats are the best. However the proviso at the end of the article states that new versions are available all the time. Further to this the instructions for the strobe does not specify NiMH batteries so i was checking if they would work. Which battery and charger would you suggest please? (i travel a lot so small ish)

Cheers
Miles

Hello Miles,

I personally use Ike strobes, which have their own battery pack, but I know that the Sanyo Eneloop with charger, found here --->https://www.bluewaterphotostore.com/sanyo_eneloop_aa_recharger, is really popular.

Happy Diving!
