Godox’s range of lithium-ion powered speedlights have been incredibly popular since they were first introduced. The original V850 and V860 speedlights were an instant hit. They had great recycle times with a lot of battery capacity to keep going all day. Followed up by the V850II and V860II with built in 2.4Ghz receivers that have proven equally popular.
Then they announced the TT350 – A smaller form factor speedlight that many opt to use on their hotshoe as a commander. But the TT350 uses AA batteries, like the TT600 and TT685 (AA powered version of the V850II and V860II respectively). Now, though, Godox has launched a lithium-ion powered version of the TT350, known as the V350.
As with other lights in the Godox lineup, the V350 is available in Nikon, Canon, Sony, Fuji and Olympus/Panasonic flavours. The lithium ion battery of the V350 offers more than 500 full power flashes on a full charge, more than double that of the TT350. It also provides recycle times of 1.7 seconds – half a second faster than its AA powered equivalent.
In all other respects, the V350 seems identical to the TT350. It supports high speed sync up to 1/8000th of a second, front & rear curtain sync, multiflash, manual flash and TTL. It can also act as a transmitter for other Godox flashes, like the AD200, AD360II and AD600Pro.

It doesn’t look like there’s any reason to buy the TT350 anymore unless you just want to save yourself a few short-term dollars (long term, you’ll eat that saving with the batteries you buy). The TT600 and TT685 do still hold a single advantage over their lithium-ion powered V850II and V860II counterparts in that you can hook up an external power pack for even faster recycle times and longer life. The TT350 offers no such advantage over the V350.
