"Battery power - Stobeam DL4"

Has anyone used or read any reviews about this battery power pack for Speedlites. Seems good value for money and has two ports.

http://www.strobeam.com/strobeam/on-camera-flash-accessories/dual-head-dl4-battery-device.html

The website doesn't provide specs but I've emailed the manufacturer to ask for details.

On a different note - I've just bought a Metz Mecalight LED light but from looking at Strobeam website, it seems that the Metz is just a rebranded version of the Stobeam/F & V version:

Identical in every way!

Hi Guy,

I have never heard of Strobeam before seeing your link.

Metz has been building Speedlights and Flash units for decades if not longer. Though I don't know for sure, I would suspect that it is much more likely that the Strobeam is a rebadged Metz unit.
Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!

Best Regards,
Marty

I used a Metz flash unit in 1970 on a Nikon F. I agree with Marty's thinking about the rebadged Metz. As for the Strobeam power pack, there are no technical specs or anything else listed on their website regarding this product.

Regards...JL

Thanks everyone. I received a reply back from Strobeam but it was a useless generic reply and they obviously hadn't even read my email properly, as I asked some very specific questions which they didn't answer. I can't be bothered with companies like that so don't think I'll bother - it doesn't set a good impression.
