Ignite Digi has just announced the new TB50 Power Pack for the RED Komodo.
The TB50 Power Pack mounts onto the back of the Komodo battery plates to accept a single DJI TB-50 battery.
- CNC machined aluminium housing
- Three 15V 2-Pin Lemo outputs
- Integrated cable for KOMODO DC-IN
- USB-C input up to 100W for TB50 hot-swap or extended run times
- Designed for straightforward transitions between gimbal, handheld and tripod modes
- Conforms to the compact size of KOMODO
- Includes a Magnetic USB-C PD 1.8m cable
According to Ignite Digi, you can expect the following run time with a single TB50 battery which is rated at 4280mAh / 97.58Wh.
3.5hrs – KOMODO only
3hrs – KOMODO + SmallHD Focus Pro OLED
1hr45m – KOMODO + Teradek Bolt + Zacuto EVF + SmallHD 502 Bright + 3x Tilta FIZ Motors
No battery data will pass through to KOMODO.
The Power Adaptor also features three 15V 2-Pin Lemo outputs which can be used to power accessories like a monitor, EVF, wireless transmitter & more.
Each port has been angled at 45-degrees to prevent cables from covering up the screen & buttons.
Hot Swap Capabilities
Using the USB-C PD Input, you can continuously power the camera from an external source, or use it to hot-swap your TB50 batteries, removing the need to power down the camera.
Just make sure to use a power source with a minimum of 60W (20V at 3A). Ignite Digi has a list of recommended power & battery devices to use with this feature on their website.
When the LED turns blue, the power source has been switched to the USB-C input and it is safe to remove the TB50.
The mounting plates are made of high-strength Ertacetal plastic to prevent damaging the surfaces of the camera.
In the case of a drop or damage, they are replaceable by the user and available as a spare part.
The TB50 adapter delivers power via the DC-IN port on the Komodo.
The integrated cable is designed to be the perfect length.
