    Is there anyone in the group who has used, or has an informed opinion of, the
    Godox/Cheetah/Bolt 4500 mAH dual-port Lithium battery pack for speedlights?
    I've read some rapturous hockey by persons who claim it's great, but not from
    anyone who seems to have actually bought and used one. B&H sells the Bolt
    version (I think Bolt is one of their proprietary brand names), but the
    listing lacks the usual user reviews. I believe the device has been out since
    January or February; is everyone afraid to buy it? I'm facing an exceptionally
    long and demanding photo shoot right after the first of the year and am
    looking for ways to lower my risk.

    I think the silence is the answer. Don't be an 'Alpha Tester', LOL!

    B&H has a thirty day return policy. Why don't you buy it now, and run it
    through your own testing procedure. You certainly have enough time, and
    would not want to take untested equipment on an important job without
    your own testing, anyway. I figure that not many reviewers use the
    equipment the same way I do. The lack of reviews, may very well be
    insignificant.
