I was testing my speedlights and Ni-MH batteries today for a shoot on Monday. My manual Yongnuo YN-560 II is still working fine. My Bower TTL flash won't fire up no matter what kind of batteries I feed it. :(

I suspect that the Bower flash needs a new capacitor, but I almost always use manual off-camera flash these days, so I shelved it for future repair. Since I'll need a minimum of 2 flashes for this shoot, I ordered Yongnuo 2pcs YN560 IV Flash kit +YN560TX LCD Wireless Flash Controller For Nikon from Amazon for delivery Sunday. Good thing I tested!

As a side benefit, I can now set my Cowboy Studio flash triggers aside for use as emergency backups in the unlikely case that all 3 of the Yonguo transmitters fail. The YN-560 II has optical slave capacity, so I can use it as my third flash when needed.
