The IDX System Technology 2 x Imicro-98 Batteries & V-Mount Plate Kit looks to be a decent solution if you want to run select digital cinema cameras or mirrorless hybrids from V-mount batteries.
- 2 x 97Wh Batteries with 14A Draw
- 2 x D-Tap Outputs, One Allows Charging
- 5-LED Gauge; Battery Circuit Protection
- V-Torch LED for Dark Environments
- SMBus Support for Battery Info Display
- Meets Aircraft Carry-On Limits
- V-mount battery plate
You can use this kit to power your camera or other V-mount powered devices using a 14.5V, 97Wh battery that has a small footprint of 3.8 x 2.8″. Two batteries, each with a 14A draw, are included in this kit, along with the V-mount battery plate.
The V-mount battery plate can be mounted on 15mm rods, but it also has plenty of M4/ M3 holes, as well as 1/4-20″ if you need to mount it directly to a camera cage, etc.
Each battery has two D-Tap outputs, one of these a D-Tap Advanced option that can be used to charge the battery. A 5-LED gauge informs on battery status, and battery circuit protection shields the battery from certain causes of battery misuse, such as exposure to high temperatures, overcharge/overdischarge, and overcurrent. The batteries also feature a V-Torch LED for working in dark environments and SMBus support, which allows users to display battery info via the viewfinder on select ARRI and RED cameras. The Imicro-98 is an ideal option for using when traveling as it meets aircraft carry-on limits.
