I have a lot of old 45-40 Series Metz 45 NiCd battery packs, that I will eventually rebuild with new NiCd batteries. I got them from Photographic Trader magazine and from ebay. I've heard that NiCd cells are going out of production, in favour of NiMH cells. I've found it's easier to put NiCd or NiMH cells in the alkaline battery holder, the flash recycle time is only slightly longer. I charge them separately out of the holder, or in the holder with a connector I made. NiMH cells need a suitable charger, with peak detection, as NiMH cells don't like being overcharged.

Changing rechargeable battries 45-40


Metz 45-40 consist of 6 nos of NiCd - AA size batteries connected in series. These battery packs can be rechanged by resoldering new set of AA size rechargable Nicd battries. Care should be taken not to short circuit the cells when disassembling and assembling the cells. Keep a note (sketch) of the connections of the cells, specially the longer connecting metal strip and the polarities of cells. re-solder the new set of AA size NiCd Batteries. If the old wires were corroded, use new wires' If the connecting terminals also corroded' clean it. If it is severely corroded, get it plated prior to fixing for better performance.. There is an charging indicating lamp which also control the charging current of the batteries. check its connections and solder it if required. I wish you got the answer for your problem.

Metz 45 cl-1 speed light & nikon d60


If the shoe of the flash is compatible with the hot shoe of the camera then yes go for it. Should the flash shoe be different then the flash will still work but with a shoe adapter. Both are TTL so I see no reasons why they won't work. I do know of a friend who uses the Nikon with the same flash but it has the battery pack fitting and uses an adapter on the camera's hot shoe. He does weddings galore and never had a problem even though he carries a spare he has never used it.

Contact polarity


Hi elepant,

I haven't seen a 202, but if it's the same as the later 45 series, then looking into the bottom of the flash, the top pin at the round end is positive, the left one half way down is the negative for 7.2V NiCDs and the bottom right one, lowest down in the square corner, is the negative for 9V alkaline batteries. I've used NiCds and NIMH batteries with no problems,connected to the alkaline pins, it's just a tapping on the power supply transformer to compensate for the NiCDs having a lower voltage. There's also a 0.2 ohm resistor inside some of the Metz 45 models, in series with the NiCd negative line, probably to limit the initial current. I've had no problems at all over 24 years, with using NICds or NIMH on the alkaline connections, in an alkaline battery holder.

Regards,

Neil

Metz 45 CT 1


I had that same problem also, but mines was temporarly. Ik think the condensor inside the Metz has to regeneratie (recover) itself by using with a full charged fresh batteries. The high freq. sound is normal. (although not to loud) after a 5 MINUTES the orange bulb should light up. How more u used how better the start-up time. My old Metz start-up time was around 40 sec. and now ot is within 7 sec.

Metz 45CT-4 power output


Have it serviced, or sell it. The culprit of this malfunction is either a faulty quench capacitor, of high capacitance and voltage, but small physical size, or a thyristor. Both are made of "unobtainium", can only be cannibalized from organ donors.
