New Canon Flash 580EX II is Compatible with Quantum Batteries
See the Turbo SC page for more details
Connect a Turbo, Turbo 2x2, Turbo SC or Turbo Z Battery to the Canon 580EX II using Flash Cable CZ. Use the Flash Cable CCZ between the 580EX and a Turbo Compact when it is attached to the bottom of a camera or bracket. You get ultra fast recycling and all day capacity.
Turbos put approximately 330 volts into the flashes capacitor/flash tube circuit, bypassing the TTL and LCD low voltage circuits. "AA" batteries still must be used to power these low voltage circuits. All power packs display power remaining and charge level using an LED "fuel gauge".
Use a Quantum Battery 1+ or Quantum Battery 1 Compact with a power module MB2 connected into the flashes battery compartment. Use a Bantam Battery or
Quantum Battery 1 Compact with a power module XB2. You get consistent recycling and typically 5 times the capacity of "AA" batteries.
