The IPL-98 and IPL-150 are the newest stackable battery solutions for digital cinema cameras where infinite runtimes are required. With a 96Wh and 143Wh capacity, the IPL-98 & IPL-150 meet the passenger aircraft carry-on limit and can still provide mobile power to cine-style cameras such as the ARRI ALEXA Mini and RED Monstro all day long if needed. Both of these batteries also include two on-battery D-Taps and USB outputs to power accessories such as monitors, lights, wireless receivers, tablets, phones, etc.
The VL-4X is a slim, lightweight, affordable 4-channel charger. Dual Simultaneous/Sequential feature charges up to 4 batteries total with any 2 simultaneously. The included AC adapter doubles as a 90W DC power supply.
With nearly 300Wh of capacity, the CUE-D300 battery contains the most watt hours we’ve ever put into a single battery. Its impressive performance is perfect for use with high-draw lights, power-hungry cameras, and suitable for all types of productions. Like all prior CUE series batteries, the CUE-D300 comes standard with 1x D-Tap output. On this model it is rated at 100W max to power 12V accessories taking a high load.
