AODELAN P12 – 12 AA Battery Pack – Now Available

AODELAN P12

 

Photo accessory company Aodelan have released the P12 Battery Pack for Canon, Nikon, and Sony speedlights, powered by 12 AA batteries.

The P12 providing additional capacity (approx. 650 – 680 full power shots), and slightly faster recycle times (0.9 – 1.0 seconds), than traditional 8 AA cell high voltage external speedlight packs.

The P12’s removable battery cartridge is double sided, allowing 6 AA batteries to be loaded into the top, and another 6 in the bottom.

Rechargeable NiMH cells, or traditional non-rechargeable alkaline batteries can be used (though recycle times will be slower with alkaline).

    Why should I buy one of those when I can get a lithium battery with interchangeable cables fitting nearly every flash on the plant for the same amount from Godox or Flashpoint? No hassle with AA batteries, a nice belt clip and better built. OK, not so many pops (500 to 650), though.

      Hi Mario,

      Lithium-ion packs have a lot of advantages, though one reason I would go with AA packs is if you don’t use them all that regularly. The Li-ion batteries last better when used regularly and kept charged, where I’ve found Eneloops last a lot longer without any maintenance. So in that situation I would have to say they are more economical.

      The other issue is simply with transporting Lithium-ion batteries in some cases. Otherwise they are much lighter weight, and much easier to recharge the one battery.

    Just to give a response to the question above; for me, I can use these packs with Batteries I already have.
    And if for some reason I drain one at an event, I can just replace the batteries.

    That’s still one issue with Lithium-ion: you need another battery for backup which most of the time is a lot more expensive than the equivalent number of enloops.

    I recognize that more people would be better suited with the PB-960 (or similar), but for me, this would work better for my situation.

    is the wire fixed or interchangeable?

    Pretty expensive!

    I’m waiting for the P48. 0.1s recycle for 8 shots before the flash’ front lens melts, and I can use the pack to recharge my electric car, too.

      Hi Geri,

      I think its unlikely because the AD360 also needs a separate 5V power source to power the flashes interface. Speedlites do not need that separate 5V supply (because they have batteries inside to power the flash interface).

      So even if you modified the plug to fit the AD360, I sill don’t think it would work unfortunately.

      Interestingly in the instruction manual there is another version of the battery pack mentioned for AODELAN’s own flash unit (which may come later). Which uses a plug like those found on the CononMK or Phottix Indra strobes. So they likely would have the separate power supply for the flash interface.

      In any case though it would really be up to Aodelan to make a version of the battery pack specifically for the AD360, and I don’t know if there would be enough of a market to justify that (when most people would use the lithium-ion pack for the larger 360Ws strobe).

    Hi, I have a Canon EX RT 2 and It´s known that the HV port only works in a proper manner with the Canon CPe4N, in fact I tried with the Godox Propac HV external battery and the recycle time is worse than with the canon cpe4N connected to the flash.

    Canon have totally throttled and slowed down the 600 ex 2 rt recycling speed with non Canon packs compared to what I got with the original 600 ex rt.

    Would have the P12 the same limitation with this flash model? Many thanks, Roberto

    https://learn.usa.canon.com/resources/articles/2016/speedlite-600ex-ii-rt/cp-e4n-battery-pack.shtml

    “Special external power supply detection circuit, which can be read by Speedlite 600EX II-RT — this allows the speedlite to take full advantage of CP-E4N battery pack’s additional continuous shooting capability. (If the 600EX II-RT does not receive this new signal, such as if it’s used with the older Compact Battery Pack CP-E4, the number of continuous flashes is controlled to minimize risk of heat build-up within the external battery pack.)”
