Does anybody have any experience with 3v slave flashes?....I just hacked a viv 215  and noticed the cap size is the same as the 6v slaves.... I think they can be used in smaller cases due to less battery space but need some input. Anybody use the viv 125s or 91s?

Check with Ralph. He did most of the hacks on the 3v flashs that I'm aware of. Know there is the 91, 125 and 215 among others. He has most of them shown in the slave hack section here.

The 215 and 125 are the same hack if I remember right, just have to get rid of 1 board on one or the other.

Never thought of that. See most of the Safari info. says 4.5v. Guess best way is to either go to his site and contact him ( http://rcdavisgamecamerasolutions.weebly.com/ also figure you know it). Will forward this to him.

When using the Safari with the Flash Backpacker, the baby slaves or 3v slaves get connected to the Flash Backpacker exactly the same way as a 6v slave flash. The only difference being the power supply that is connected to Gnd and Power on the Flash Backpacker should match you slave flash input voltage.
