A great item but doesn't work with NiMh – Digital Pro Slave Flash - Black (2*AA) Reviews

posted by Megavvolt2 on 02/02/2011 Certified Owner

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
It's a great tiny flash that works. Can go on the first, second, third or fourth pre-flashes. Can also work on a hotshoe. Hotshoe voltage is 6.5Volts - can be used on modern cameras.
Cons:
Only works on primary batteries. Doesn't work on rechargeable batteries. When the batteries don't have enough juice in them the flash still turns on the "Ready" light but doesn't flash.
Other:
Usually, a flash uses 4 batteries. This one uses 2 batteries. Batteries get really warm and die very quickly.
Bottomline:
This flash is a very cheap but good quality product. However, since NiMh batteries don't work in it, using it is really expensive because primary batteries die real quick in it. Not sure if I'd buy it again...
