Nice review on the mini battery pack. This is seriously making me think of ditch my speedlights, and just getting a portable Alien Bees Setup. :(

i started with 2 SB-600s. Since i got ABs and the Vagabond 2, and then the Mini-Lithium. I've only used my speed lights once. They collect dust now.
Bear in mind, portability is much greater with speedlights, obviously. But since i shoot pretty slow, it doesn't really affect me.

depends on where you are going with photography... if you shoot weddings/engagements, the speedlights are what you want :)

if you want to overpower the sun though... :) :) :)

some of those speedlights are pretty powerful, almost comparable to ABs.
Of course, if you ask Joe McNally, he'd just use 12 speedlights instead ha ha

Speedlights are fine but a single AB or Einstein with the VML is a mighty fine setup for on-location stuff. Gives you power and flexibility and I hate having to worry about charging a bunch of AA even with my Maha charger.
