    I did a cold shoot outside yesterday but found that to get any kind of a rapid flashgun recharge I needed to change AA batteries after 20-30 shots.
    All the Nikon pro chaps next to me were firing off loads of multiple shots in a second all night on battery packs. My Canon EX430 has no external power port.
    I want eTTL as in the heat of the moment i don't have time to manually adjust power.

    So my first thought is something like a Nissin unit with a charger pack – would you have any suggestions at the lower end of the market?
    Many thanks.

    Yongnuo also do a 8 battery pack -
    http://www.hkyongnuo.com/e-detail.php?ID=246 Around £35

    For both of these units you need to provide the batteries yourself.

    An all inclusive package is the Walimex PB820, but about £100

    I think they're all just multi battery packs, and anyone selling with batteries will be priced to reflect that option.
    Sell the 430, and put the money towards a yongnuo ettl speedlite, a battery pack and some rechargable enneloop batteries.

    Highly, Highly recommended...

    Have used two of these for a full wedding season and they have been a revelation. Not the best, certainly not bullet-proof but very reliable and very affordable way into fast flash.
