Anybody know where I could find the instruction manual for the Canon CP-E4 battery pack? I bought a used one to use with my 580EXII but it came with no manual.

You'll probably have to call Canon as I can't find one online. In fact, it appears Canon no longer lists the CP-E4 as a current product at their US website.

The only thing you need to be concerned about is firing too many consecutive flashes for fear of burning up the flash tube. But the 580EXII is supposed to have some sort of overload protection circuitry.

Not much to it.
Put the batteries in and plug it in. Make sure you set the custom function on the 580 EX II to use the battery source.
That's about it in a nutshell.
Hope this helps.

Flash Custom Function 12 default is 0: Flash and external power

Leave it there for faster re-cycle times.

Somebody beat me to it but since I went to the trouble of scanning it, I'll post it anyway (as an attachment instead of a link to another site, and it's straighter, too, in case you have OCD :mrgreen: ). :)

It's honestly the simplest product ever. Insert batteries, plug it into your flash. What would anyone need a manual for?

I agree Tim, but some people want to know they're doing it according to the manufacturer's recommendations.

That sounds rude sorry.
