Ok...might be a DUMB question. BUT, since I cannot find a definitive answer anywhere...decided to post.

I am in the market to purchase a set of AB 1600's. However, I can't yet purchase a vagabond. But, I have an older Quantum Turbo Battery pack that I use for my Canon 550's & 580's. Of course, I had to purchase the specific cable to do so..no problemo. But, I can't find anything that definitively indicates such a cable is available to go from a QT to an AB.

So, can anyone advise if this is a possibility or am I chasing rainbows and unicorns??

Thanks!

No, the AB's need AC power to operate. A Vagabond is a battery powered inverter that supplies AC current.
