I have the 45-39 battery pack and can quite easily solder an external 9V battery connector to the correct connectors.

But I don't want to fry the flashgun using something with too much power, and as we all know Metz warns against using rechargeables in the battery pack.

Any ideas?
This was because the NiCads will give a higher peak current output than alkalines. This can overheat the transistors which drive the multivibrator. The nicad pack for mine (a 45 CT1) has it's own contacts within the flash, it does not use the same connection as the alkalines.
