The IDX VL-2X 2-Channel V-Mount Charger & Power Supply supports lithium-ion and NiCad batteries and features three modes of operation. Charger mode provides sequential charging, automatically switching to the second battery after fully charging the first. It delivers up to 2.7A of quick-charge current without the noise of a typical charger thanks to a fanless design. Power Supply mode offers up to 36W of DC power via a 4-pin XLR output. Power Base mode allows you to power the XLR output off of attached batteries, without having to connect the charger to a power outlet.
The VL-2000S Quick Charger from IDX is a simultaneous 2-channel Li-ion V-Mount battery charger with a 100W DC output (4-pin XLR). Supporting LIFE PLUS mode, the VL-2000S can extend battery life up to 20%. It features Power Base mode. This mode gives you the ability to utilize the mounted batteries for powering equipment via the 4-pin XLR output. Low voltage batteries are safely charged with the Recovery Charge mode.
The IDX VL-4SE Endura 4-Channel Lithium-Ion Battery Charger charges up to 4 IDX Endura V-mount batteries at the same time. Each bay is independent of the others, so there is no waiting for one battery to finish before the next one can start. The charger features a durable yet lightweight polycarbonate body with a recessed power switch and a top handle. This V-mount charger is compatible with IDX's Endura series of batteries.
