A few years ago I was using a xxxxxx pack ( i will keep the vendor private) it was a great pack, but over time the charge would not hold and i found myself with an un-reliable costly solution.
The SD-9 offers you the ability to add your own set of 8 AA batteries - alkaline or rechargeable, So as battery technology improves or your batteries goes bad you dont have to replace the entire system.
I use mine with a SB-910, and notice a slight better recycle time and at least double the number of shots before I need to replace or recharge.
Too bad nikon did not think of offering a "battery magizine" system to allow me faster replacements. Or at least a second battery box. With this set up, when the batteries are discharged you need to remove the pack, then remove each cell and replace them -boo hoo, time consuming.
Much better if NIKON had offered 2 slide in magazines and a charger for it
Nikon calls it "high Performance" guess what - You add your own batteries. Performance depends on you, not Nikon.
Lots of money for a plastic battery box :(
I've now shot my last two weddings using it and the SD-9 was a huge boost in my ability to capture shots that I might've been missed before due to a recycle (shots missed due to photographer error is another matter. ;-) The attached cord/belt combination doesn't get in the way nearly as much as I thought it might, though it may be a small nuisance to some.
The ability to mount the pack to the base of the camera (tripod screw) is a nice touch but one I doubt I will use much - makes it a bit awkward to grip.
I use with Powerex AA NiMH. Highly recommended!
I give this product 3 stars only because after a year or so they usually crap out on me and stop working.. I am on my third one now, luckily I purchased the squaretrade warranty so they replaced my last one for me.
You still need to load the 900 with four of them to complete the circuit, so you'll need 20 batteries for a refresh, along with the Nikon MS-SD9 Replacement Battery Holder for the SD-900 Battery Pack to make that exchange quick and easy, so it's a significant investment, but from experience I can tell you this is a worthwhile one.
Using a more powerful Quantum pack or something similar can fry your 900, especially if you've already figured out how to turn off the thermal shut-off. When the little guy starts beeping at you, beware: you're pushing it a little too hard. This won't happen as quickly with the SD-9. Sure, you can still fry it if you ignore the warnings, but if you run into that much need for more flashes and need a workhorse of a light, check out the Quantum QF8N QFlash Trio for Nikon Cameras. Virtually the same output as the SB-900, you can shoot it all dang day and night, and if you need to replace a bulb, that's all you'll have to do. 10% of the cost of a new 900...
If you shoot Manual flash, the SD-9 can make your flash last much longer, provided you're working within reasonable limits. Full-power pops all day will drain any battery system, but you'll shoot much longer with much shorter recharge times with it.
Highly recommended, especially if you want to stay with the Nikon CLS. Good shooting.
