So I've been reading up a lot lately on quantum units and such, and was thinking about building my own. It would be for use with 8 or 10 AA Rechargable NiMH and would plug in via a coaxial port that I'll install in the flash as well. I read an article about doing it with sealed lead acid batteries, but I kinda would like to explore the versatility of using AA's instead. I would connect 4 or 5 of them in series, then parallel that with another 4 or 5, respectively. The port would feed right into the soldered connection for where the normal internal battery connections are soldered, and there would be a switch on the camera to change between the battery pack or internal batteries. Or perhaps using the 4 internal batteries as well would increase the current even more? Because from what I understand, the easiest way to increase the recycle time would be to up the current.
So how feasible is this project? Any advice to me as I try this out? Would it just completely not work? Am I misunderstanding how you add current to a system? Forgive me if my understanding of current is all wrong. I took one Electrical Engineering class in college and I don't really remember much of it anymore.
