Default External power for SB600

Is it possible to attach an external power pack source to my SB600, replacing the four batteries? If not, can you offer suggestions?
Thank you...

G'day Dan

I have made up an external power pack as a DIY project -
rather than take over your thread, I'll post it into a new thread for you to follow

Regards, Phil

G'day Dan

"Glad to be of service" ~ hope it's an idea that you feel comfortable with pursuing, although I realise that it may not suit everybody, nor every set of circumstances

I have found that using el-cheapo 6volt lantern batteries does not save anything in the long run - so I go for the 'better' brands which have more staying power

Regards, Phil

Hi Phil:
Sorry, but I need some help. Did you post that thread somewhere and I can't find it?

G'day Dan

Try "Flash > external" then "DIY project..."
