    Obviously the 1/1 uses more battery than the ... say 1/64 speed. But I am wondering if the zoom feature of my new flash (a feature new to me) also takes more battery and heats up the flash more quickly?

    It probably uses a minute amount of juice. Probably not enough to be of any significant concern.

    The zoom feature just physically move the diffuser to change the coverage to match the angle of view of the lens.
