    Strength:

    Well built!
    Charges Fast and maintains a fast flash head recharge rate!
    Portable
    Two power output ports
    Longevity of battery life before it needs charging

    Weakness:

    Like Pocket Wizards, you have to buy a cable to make it work with many (if not all) cameras/flashes. The cables (Quantum calls them 'Modules') cost anywhere between $30 - 100.

    The cost, but you get what you pay for!

    The Quantum QB1+ is a rechargable battery pack to power portable strobe flashes or cameras.

    Strength:

    Quick charging, very strong and robust for those long shoots. Can't beat it.

    Weakness:

    A little cumbersome with the big battery connector coming out of the battery compartment on my 550EX flash. Wish it had the connection cord like the Turbo does. One wire and plug in connection. But I can live with it. Not a big problem.

    Great battery pack! Works well with my previous Canon 540EZ flash and my current Canon 550EX flash. Keeps me charged for a whole wedding, from start to finish without any worries.

    Strength:

    Lightweight, lots of juice for 6 volt flash systems, shows amount of charge left in battery.

    Weakness:

    none

    I bought mine used from KEH and have had no problems whatsoever. I also use with a Vivitar 285HV. Fast recycle times with the Vivitar 285HV. I shoot with a medium format camera without a motor drive. With the Vivitar 285HV set to half power (manual mode) I can shoot and by the time I crank the handle to advance film and recock shutter the flash is ready to fire again. Lots of juice in it for shooting weddings.

    I have this QUANTUM Battery 1+ since 1997 and it never fails me. I use it with Vivitar 285HV for wedding photograhy. Although, it is not as fast as the TURBO Battery... but it will do a fine job. Recommended!!
