Hi Tom,

The battery is Metz Accu 60-38 4.5Ah at 6VDC
VRLA Battery 100 20 4010


Any Pb battery at 4.5Ah or higher will do.
Toy & Us sells some of them for kid cars.

    Hi Tommy,



    Glad I was able to help.



    Just be careful on the neck of the flash, because that flash is over 15.



    I repair many of these flashes, most from those Canon & Nikon junks.



    Any questions on photography, just send to my Email.

I have a metz 60ct-1 flash with a dry cell battery pack. Can I use it with the canon 50D digital slr. if I use the external sync,or would it hurt my camera because it has to much voltage?


Hi I just purchased the same unit last week. DO NOT PLUG IT INTO A DIGITAL CAMERA DIRECTLY.
I got very good advise from KEH photography located in Atlanta.
The voltage is too high from this flash and will destroy the circuits in the new Canon digital camera. You need a module called the " Safe sync " This unit clips onto your new digital camera, ( were the normal Canon flash fits ) and has the "PC" ( the little round connector input ) for the Metz control cable,
I am an electronic technologist, and still suggest contacting your local photo shop.I know electronics , but not all the photo stuff. Snap away and be happy!

My 60CT-1 only fires at full power. Worked fine one day the next time I used the unit it would only fire full power each flash.


Is the top dial set on AUTO?

Is the sensor window clean or obstructed?

Checking both of these may solve your problem. Do you have a Manual for this flash? There are free pdf downloads on the I/Net.

The 60CT-4 was not made for digital cameras.
It does TTL on film not on CMOS or CCD sensor.

Flash doesn't fire properly at regular position


Did you buy this used or new?

If used: neck has broken/shorted wires.
Try fires with the Test Button in A mode with hand blocking sensor and then without. Move head around.

If I can help.

Metz 60-4 flash takes much longer than normal for the ready light to come on to allow me to take another photo.


It is likely the capacitor in the battery pack. If they are not powered up every month, they dry out resulting in long power up and recycle times. You'll need to get it replaced to rejuvenate your 60 CT-4 to its original spec.
