Quantum products have announced the release of  their Turbo Blade battery pack - their smallest and most compact power source for portable flash units!

The Turbo Blade delivers fast recycling and high capacity in a clever, tough case that attaches to the camera base via it's tripod thread and is designed for those photographers that prefer a camera-mounted battery pack for ease of use. However, the Turbo Blade can be used away from the camera with longer power cables when carried in a pocket, backpack or belt pouch and it has a highly visible "fuel-gauge" indicates battery capacity and charge status.

It offers 400 full power flashes with a hot-shoe flash and Ultra-Fast recycling (1.4 second to full power with a hot-shoe flash). It creates a full charge from empty in 1.5 hour and is compatible with hundreds of flash units including Canon, Nikon, Metz, and many more.

The Turbo Blade is now available from leading imaging retailers with an RRP of £499.97 including VAT.
