Do not use lithium cells! Their higher voltage would damage the flash

accepted if they were caused by the use of accessories from other manufacturers.

It says that in every language included in the manual.

NiCads are 1.2 V, opposed to regular alkaline battery's 1.5 V.
So no problem.
...... yes but...

The 45 CL-4 Digital manual mentions that ( do not use lithium cells), the manual for the older 45 CL-4 makes no statement about lithium.
It's possible that the newer Digital models circuit is different than the older model hence that statement.

The lithium "AA" batteries that I use are 1.5v same as a regular alkaline or even the old carbon battery so I am not sure what they mean by higher voltage!

Anyway, still awaiting an official answer from the "Metz/Bogen and the Emerald City wizard behind the curtain"

Will post if I hear anything :rolleyes:
