I haven't actually tried the ikeas in my flashes, they are usually in my laser level that eats batteries in no time. They don't seem to last quite as long as the maplin ones but at half the price of enerloops I'd buy 2 lots of ikea ones

The Panasonic charger the enerloops came with is miles better than the energizer ones I've had. I haven't tried an ikea charger

Edit, having looked at the ikea website at the charger, it looks like my Panasonic one with different stickers!

Thanks both

I read that the Amazon Basics are likely to be Enerloop too.
With the price difference got to be worth a punt on the Ikea ones.

I've got loads of rechargeables I use, I bought all the aa size I could find when maplin were shutting, I think it was a fiver for 8 high power batteries
Also got some eneloops which are similar performance, and some ikea ones that are much cheaper and not that far behind.

I do have a godox v860 with a lithium battery, and it does last longer and recycle faster, but it is a bit heavy for on camera use and being lithium, it'll work at full power until it doesn't. You don't get that warning of things slowing down. A spare is expensive and you can't guarantee you'd get a replacement in the future. I did intend to replace my aa versions but decided against it. The tt685 heads I've got are the same bar the battery. My ad200s are lithium too but those heads are different gravy!

Any tips for flash battery power?

Iím getting a little frustrated with battery life in my Speedlight 430 EX II
Itís great with new batteries but obviously recharge times slow down as the batteries fade, taking longer and longer.
Normally I have AAís coming out of my ears (work leftovers) but having been a little too generous with them lately, and no work to restock, Iím rapidly running out of my free ones and the the thought of actually buying them at a rate of 4-8 per shooting day is a bit much!

Are any of the rechargeables viable for this application?

Is there a better replacement for the Speedlight itself?


Eneloop Pro looking like the favourite...

Really clear picture with plenty of detail. That egg-sac looks uncomfortable to me.

I have been doing a lot of macro and attempting creative photography this year mainly due to the lockdown and I am enjoying it, but I much prefer landscape and seascape. I have some time off soon but not sure where to go.

Here's a couple from last year that I quite like.

Pinmill and Eastbourne Peer.

Glad to know there's a reason even if I don't fully understand it

Itís down to magnification. At these high magnifications things happen in the lens which effectively mean the aperture is smaller than marked. So you need a lot more light than at lower ratios.

I was thinking the 4ft brolly for a portrait vs my pringles tube would be similar size/subject, but thinking about it, I doubt I was using the full surface of it. It just seems to take loads of power for macro.
