dyna-lite JackRabbit packs + Canon 430EXII

->> Hola, I'm trying to figure out if I can juice up a couple of Canon 430EXII strobes with my JackRabbitt battery packs. The dyna-lite site sez there's a cable for them (JR-CZ) but the places that sell it don't list these Canon strobes as compatible. Anyone here using this set up ? Same thing with the Sunpak 120J (JR-CS4).
Gracias

->> Paramount seems to have a fix for it but it would cost 3 times what the dyna-lite made cable costs and I need 4 of them.

->> Do the 430's not have the same kind of port on the side as the 550s and newer?

->> No ports on the 430s. Paramount offers to customize a cord they make to go in the batt compartment which means drilling a hole on the cover to allow the cable out. It's either that or getting different strobes.

->> Hey Angel,
If you are only using them as off camera strobes on a manual setting and triggering them with pocket wizards or slaves then get some 540ez ‘s. They work great for that and can be purchased used for a fraction of the cost of the new EX strobes. They use the same Jackrabbit cord as the 580’s. Just remember NOT to put a 540ez on a digital camera.
