If it runs off the mains, Dave, does it actually take batteries? I had a gun many years ago that didn't.

Think it does, seem to remember that I read that somewhere. I could buy a set of instructions but thought I would try here first.

If i remember correctly the batteries fit in the head of the gun from the top a clip in cover has to be removed, but my memory may be wrong.

By the way I would think twice about using it in the hotshoe of a digital camera has it has a high trigger voltage.

Think you are correct Paul, but I think the bit where the batteries go may be missing.
Yes, I know I shouldn't use it with digital:D

"A Sunpak 522 is the same as as a Sunpak 3600, US model number /International model number.

a Sunpak 544 is pretty much the same as a 522/3600 without the clumsy TTL setup. (watch out for the high trigger voltage though). Only fires with pc cord."

So you might find some info with a search of the Sunpack 522.
