Camera Hack – How to Add an external battery to the Flash!

Here’s a short little camera hack for those of you having trouble with re-charging the flash by adding an external battery.  It might be a hack but it will work if you are shooting photos in long sessions.

Or when it’s cold and the batteries don’t hold their charge so well anymore. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could have a
