Compact and lightweight shadows killer – YY BY-18 Electronic Flash (5600K) Reviews

Compact - most likely it will appear smaller than your camera and fit your pocket just fine.
Lightweight - only 170 grams when loaded with 2*AA NiMH rechargeable batteries (32 grams each) and equipped by SKU 8201 remote trigger.
Quick - recharge time is only 3...5 seconds depending on batteries' voltage.
Is not adjustable in neither way, so the best use for these flashes is equipping them with remote triggers (once again: look at SKU 8201) and putting them on a separate holders (like SKU 1309) for lighting away the shadows produced by your on-camera flash.
Also, the fixing nut looks weak.
I've bought 3 of them in a bulk and they do their job.
If you need secondary flashes - these are a good choice.
