The Switronix XP-L90S is a 14.8V lithium-ion V-mount battery with a 98Wh capacity that can be transported carry-on without restrictions under IATA, ICAO, and UN regulations. The XP-L90S features a P-Tap output for powering 12V DC accessories, and a USB port capable of outputting up to 3A at 5V for powering/charging mobile and other devices. The battery automatically detects the camera load and calculates run-time and displays remaining power via a 4-LED power gauge.

The 14.8V output eliminates all 12V battery cutoff problems. For smaller cameras too low in voltage for this battery, Switronix offers optional voltage regulation cables such as the XP-DV-S20.

      This battery is a solid performer. It will power my 1x1 LED panel for 65 minutes at full power, without any drop off in light intensity. After that, the light intensity begins to fall off, at first imperceptibly, then dramatically.

      I wish it were a little lower profile, as some competitors batteries are. But for the price, it's a great workhorse.

      Bought it online when it was on sale. [...]When I opened the box,the battery looked simply huge compaired to my IDX E-10S, not to mention it weighs more. Needs much more room in your cam bag. The casing of the battery is very good. Its rubberized so it will protect it from an impact or some outdoor elements. The specs for the battery are very confusing. BH's web site spec is different from manufacturers, the specs on the box are different from the manual inside it. I had to waist my time by calling[...] Switronics just to get the numbers wright. Returned the battery to the store in exchange for a chipper Bescore BPLI-95. Bescore performs beautifully and its an exact copy of my IDXs. Buttom line: I wouldn't recomend this battery, unless you do a lot of outdoor shoots.

        Comments about Switronix XP-L90S V-Type 14.8VDC Lithium Battery:

        Used with Sony HVRS270U to supplement existing batteries that are getting long-in-the-tooth. I record to compact flash and to tape as a back up (I have had CF cards fail in the field and the tape saved my shoot) so my batteries have a bit of a higher load than just recording to cards. So far these Switronix batteries seem to be fine. I read some reviews before buying that complained about size but they don't seem overly large or heavy to me. I like the built-in P-Tap and USB connections and the LED status indicators seem better than those on the IDX batteries I have and about on par with the much more expensive Sony batteries. I bought these when they were the "Deal of the Day" and for the price they can't be beat.

            Comments about Switronix XP-L90S V-Type 14.8VDC Lithium Battery:

            Defintely the battery to buy if you're on a budget and can't afford the $ dollar battery with V-mount. I bought two and never worry about running out of charge because they last a pretty long time (approx. 2 hours for uninterupted use, can last basically all day if you are careful).They're rugging and the LED power indicator works just as well as any battery that gives you that information on the LCD screen of the camera. One minor draw back is that they take a long time to charge (5 or so hours) but that isn't worth docking a star given how long it lasts in return.

            Comments about Switronix XP-L90S V-Type 14.8VDC Lithium Battery:

            I own two of these and I'm really satisfied. With one battery on my V-mount plate, I can power my Nikon D810, my Hyperdeck Shuttle 2, a LED panel and a mic for around 3 hours in continue.
            And it's the lightest battery I've used since.

                  I wanted a battery to last long, obviously, and power 3 devices at the same time. i have a sony fs700, Kinotehnik evf, and odyssey 7q which are all powered by these batteries for a little over 3-4 hours, which is great! it also provides a counterweight balance, making the whole camera rig not too front heavy, which helps a lot (on my shoulders) when going handheld mode. despite the charger being a bit steep, to be fair all the other brands are too, i would definitely buy more switronix batteries in the future.

                  Got 6 of these to power portable lights. Had to get the V-mont version as that was required by the lights. These last about the same amount of tine as Anton Bauer Dionic 90's, cost a third less, are bulkier but weigh about the same. I find the V-mound connection to be less reliable than the Anton Bauer 3 button mount- sometimes have to fiddle with the connection when the batteries are on the charger or the lights.

I haven't had to maximize the burn time yet so I can't give an accurate burn time, but I'll update this review when I have some more input. I like that it have a simple single button power indicator on the side.

                      With a few of these and a Switronix GP-2LSJ charger, you can shoot all day powering your entire rig without a glitch. If you get these batteries, get the charger. Recharging with the P-Tap cable does take about 8 hours. The charger makes the difference. I recently shot a feature using that combination and was never without power. I highly recommend getting a Switronix JetPack as part of your power chain. It made shooting a lot easier not worrying about power not being there.

                          works without problems, just got it so I wonder how long it will last

                            I love this battery, it works seamlessly with my Tilta battery plate, and also allows for USB charging for smartphones or other USB devices. I use this with my BlackMagic Cinema Camera, and it extends the batter a good 4 or 5 hours. A must buy for any BMCC owner! The only downside is that if you are shooting handheld, or on a shoulder rig, the battery's weight will be noticeable, although this could be a great use for a counter weight.

                              I use this battery feeding cameras monitors and IDX antennas! I' can feed with 5 V to charge any USB port!

                              Very nice choice!

                              Powers my BMCC, EVF, and monitor for 3-4 hours before dieing.

                              It IS very bulky, but manageable. And hey what are you gonna do? The smaller ones don't last as long, and I'd rather carry and charge 3 big ones all day instead of have to swap and mange a bunch of smaller batteries.

                              I'm happy with its performance!

                              All kinds of wonderful outputs, a bit bulky but worth it. Love that it has usb out. Charge your phone while in the field.
