I have one and power it with a Quantum Tubro Z.

It takes about 3-4 seconds to charge for a full burst recycle. It takes about 2 second for a half burst recycle.

It gets worse as the battery goes down.

I get about 100-200 shots to a battery charge depending on what I am doing.

I love the thing, you just have to learn to work a bit slower.

As for transporting the flash, I use one of the little plastic cups that came with one of my big photogenic flashes (held in place with the accessory attachment screw) to protect the tube. I don't recall one coming with the unit, but you can get one from B&H for about ten bucks.

It takes all of my other Photogenic accessories.
