    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.

    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.
