Remote power for the professional photographer

Quantum Turbo 3

TURBO 3 Power and speed for the most demanding location assignments

For that BIG assignment or travel where recharging is unavailable, TURBO 3 the right tool for the job.  By using the latest in battery technology, Quantum has made the TURBO 3 remarkably small and light for the power you can tap.

Quantum’s TURBO 3 is the ultimate portable flash power pack, providing 1050 full power flashes for a typical shoe mount flash.  When shooting in TTL, many thousands of flashes are possible before recharging.

In spite of this power, Turbo 3 mounts comfortably on a belt or worn over a shoulder.  Clamp it to a light stand (optional QBC accessory) to power remote flashes.
