I don't have a T20, but that isn't normal for a T18, T32 or any other 
flash I've had. Sounds like something arching over. Either a capacitor 
starting to go or shot insulation. Sounds like each pip is some charge 
being lost, then it gets replaced quickly by the charging circuit. It's 
only happening at full voltage, but will likely get worse with use. If 
nothing else, it would mean decreased battery life. Sounds like time to 
switch and combine good innards with good case. Or return it, if possible.
