    I now have 3 Nikon Speedlites and a Sigma Macro Flash which is making the whole battery problem a concern. I see that there are many AA systems to choose from. Many brands Ive never heard of and of course Evergizer and Duracell. I understand that the more mAh the battery has the better. Energizer now has a 15min charger and 2500mAh batteries, which seems like the way to go. Need some opinions on this system and others.

    I also have the New Nikon R1 macro kit. This takes the CR123a batteries. I would like to get recharbles for this as well. The only system Ive seen so far is the Delkin system. It seems good but it can only charge one at a time. Any help would be appreciated.

    Heres a link to the Delkin CR123a system

    The Quantum pack is an option, but, its a little pricey. I was thinking of using one for my SB800 while attached to the Hot Shoe, but that wouldnt do me much good for using other flashes off camera. I really dont want to get into running a bunch of wires. And there is no way I could afford a pack for each flash.

    Thanks for the suggestion.
