    Ive had the litpanle mini for a while now and always used the anton bauer tap. that has been light weight and very handy.
    But now ive been shooting with the 7D and needed an on camera light. The lite panel mini is amazing and the rechargeable battery is definitely wort the money to have. It lasts a long time and is very rugged incased in metal just like the lite itself.
    i love it!

    Unless I'm missing something, file this in the "What were they thinking" category.This battery is missing an A/C charger to charge the battery. It's an additional item that litepanel charges $55 for! ALSO...you can't use the battery to power your litepanel without the jumper (the cable that provides power from the battery to the litepanel.) It's another additional item that you need to buy for $9. Why in the world wouldn't they include the jumper? Raise the price, litepanel, if money is that tight for you guys. [...]I'm not sure if this is an issue with the battery or the litepanel but when dimming the litepanel mini while using the battery (the only way I have used it) you get flickering. The flicker stops once you stop dimming which is fine for almost all uses but the great thing about the 1x1 litepanel is that when a subject is moving close to you (while shooting video) you can slowly dim the light and keep constant exposure on your subject. With the battery you can't (unless my battery or my litepanel is faulty. I'm not sure if using a different type of battery would cause this issue or not.)The battery is very heavy so if you're planning on using your litepanel attached to the hotshoe of your camera with a long lens while handheld you might have a bit of difficulty even for stills.For the money there must be a better solution. Buy only if you need something with this form factor.The good news is that the battery feels solid and attaches well to the litepanel.

          Comments about Litepanels LPB Rechargeable Battery Pack:

          I didn't like the fact that the the little cable that links the battery to the light is not included. I had to order it separately and missed using it on a video shoot. This battery just died on me after havoing used it about 15 times. Now I no longer have a portable light because I have no usable battery. Costing as much as it does I think it should last more than 6 months. My Canon batteries last forever - why doesn't this? I give it two stars because when it worked it was OK.

                  Is a big help with small cameras that have no d tap power out. It just works and last for pretty long time and not to heavy at all.

                    Very good light weight battery for those those mini-lite panels which provide accent lighting. The indicators on them are awesome and you always know how much power you have left.

                      In essence it is a great battery pack, albeit somewhat heavy. Unfortunately it doesn't fit as tightly as it should and is prone to fall off the light. Our only help is to use cable binders to keep it safely on. Not really what you expect from such a big name as litepanels. I wouldn't recommend it.

                        Obviously this was made for the light, so it is going to be the best. Although they sell adapters, this is lighter, and lasts just as long if not longer. Definitely recommended if you have the litepanel miniplus. Just be sure to pick up the little jumper to connect it to the light.

                              Using this product to power a Litepanel Mini and it is working fine. Solid construction with a battery meter. Could be a little lighter.

                                Good battery, but we didn't take it with us because it is large and did not fit into the travel case with the light. The same battery that came with the Litepanels Package was enough and we didn't need the second one. Charges fast and has good battery life.

                                I use the Micro Litepanel with a Sony EX1. Off camera it's a great fill light, and in natural available light circumstances even a key light. But the downer with using it on camera is the weight of this battery. It's manageable, but it gets heavy very quickly and ruins the ergonomics of the camera, tipping heavily frontward.
