I am currently using a Lumedyne mega cycler, which is a nicd battery pack and I recelled it 2 years ago. It works great. I want another one for my second speedlite. There are so many of them and they all look similar. Not sure why some are more expensive than the others and others didn't perform as well. I do worry about the sellers selling old stock battery packs since they have a lift span of 3 years top....

Flashpoint Blast Pack at Adorama is great and not too expensive. Comes with a return policy and warranty.

I would probably go with Godox from BH...hehehe.. Their pb960 pack is about $120. But, on Ebay, GodoxStudio (relating to Godox??), they are selling the one with a BT5800 battery instead, 5800mah.

You can do it yourself of any power (I now use 4 x 18650 batteries from an old laptop), it's not difficult, but you need basic knowledge of electricity and the ability to work with a soldering iron. I made myself an external power supply (use with Yongnuo YN600EX-RT II) using this guide http://www.andrew.lan4​.net/sb/ (external link)
