The ZITAY Sony NP Battery with Dual DC Ports & USB-C Port looks to be a good alternative to other Sony NP style batteries that are available on the market.
The ZITAY battery is a 7.2V 10500mAH (77Wh) solution. It has dual In/Out 7.2V 6A 43W DC outputs that let you power other accessories. Just a word of warning, ZITAY recommends that if you are using the DC port as an input the voltage of the adapter should not be higher than 12V and the current shouldn’t be more than 2A. If you are using the DC ports as an output, each one should not be higher than 3A.
The battery has a touch status button to show you what the power percentage is. There is also a USB-C In/Out port on the battery. You can use this to charge the battery or to power another device that runs off USB-C.
The battery has overcharge protection. over-discharge protection, over-current protection, short circuit protection, and over-voltage protection all built-in.
What do you get?
This is what you get in the kit:
- 1x NP-F970 battery
- 1x F550 dummy battery
- 1x USB C to DC cable
- 1x PD Fast charging head
It is nice to see that you get an included charger and a dummy battery. These are normally not items that come as standard with these type of batteries.
Dummy Battery Adapter
The included Dummy Battery Adapter allows you to power a wide variety of cameras such as:
- Sony a7 III
- Sony a7R III
- Sony a7R IV
- Sony a7S III
- Sony a9
- Sony a9 II
The dummy battery adapter simply plugs into one of the two DC outputs that are on the battery.
