An E-P1 Power Pack Related Question for the RF60

2 questions.

1) Cactus External Power Pack EP-1, I am considering getting this just to get quicker recycle time with my Cactus RF60 flash.  If I use this with the Cactus RF60, does the RF60 still require batteries inside it? O, will the E-P1 Power Pack be sufficient to power the RF60 by itself?

2) Speaking of the RF60, I'm curious and surprised it is not listed anywhere for sale on your site. Is it discontinued or replacement coming up?

    Hello @Wing0949

    When using the EP-1 external battery pack, you still need 4 AA batteries inside the RF60, they will power the LCD and wireless functions. While the EP-1 will take care of the recharging. 

    RF60 has been sold out and a replacement model will be available soon. More product information will be released soon. Stay tuned!

    To help us better help you, always state the exact firmware version installed on your Cactus device(s), such as: "1.1.013", "FUJ.1.002", "v.103".

    For the time being, Cactus V6 (MK1) running on firmware version 2.1.001 can be triggered by a V6 II (MK2) running on Multi-brand HSS firmware (e.g. 1.1.013) and not by X-TTL firmware versions: PEN.A.001 and OLY.A.001.  No schedule has been released yet. 

    Cactus RF60X / RF60 Firmware versions A01 and A02 currently ONLY works with PEN.A.001 and OLY.A.001.  Other "A" version of X-TTL firmware will be released soon. For both Multi-brand HSS and X-TTL firmware versions (FUJ, SIG, SON), install firmware version 103 / 205 on your RF60X / RF60.

    Cactus RF60 is now an off-camera TTL flash with firmware version 205 or later!

    Metz M400 (for Fujifilm) is now supported on the Cactus V6 II (HSS and TTL).
