A professional, Canon User, firing 600ex -rt's. At a recent awards night I found the limitations of in-flash batteries. Firing on full power (due to distance and lighting) for the awards with fresh batteries, I normally let the presenter know to wait for my three flashes before letting the recipient go, my flash was taking 4 seconds to cycle...8 seconds seem a lifetime for the presenter to stand there. Now with the Godox the recycle time is 1 second... flash, 1 second, 2nd shot, 1 second, 3rd shot... 3 shots in 3 seconds and we are done! Much more professional result.

I already own 4 of these, and mate has some also.
I ordered a 'spare' but decided to use it (in conjunction with the Y cord to convert from 2 to 1 for faster recycle time) and with a Nikon (NX) cord to power my on camera Sb900 flash.
Now, that flash had already done a lot of work at my last wedding and batteries in flash head were depleted a lot, but I just attached the Godox Propac PB960 Speedlite Power Pack (with cords) to the flash and tested.
At 1/2 manual power on my flash I could just keep firing multiple times and the red charge ready light did not blink once.
Upped to 1/1 full manual power, and it took 1 second or less (hard to tell it was still so fast) to fully recycle, then I took off the battery and tried full power (with depleted on board batteries in it) and it was taking 6-7 seconds, of course this would decrease to around 2.5-3 seconds anyway.
