    So far, so incredible. Runs the LED-150 for over 4 hours. About the size of a thick pack of cigs, it won't break your back with the belt clip.

    I think the size and weight of the battery is fantastic. In my line of work I need to be very mobile and this battery makes it possible to move very quickly and effortlessly.

    However, one huge problem is that the battery clip detaches from the battery cover causing the battery to fall onto the ground. I've been buying these batteries since 2003 and have only had this problem occur the last 2 years. I emailed Bescor regarding same, but never received a response.

    Fortunately, I have the old cases (the clips are solid) so I've just put the newer batteries into the older covers. This problem prevents me from adding more of these batteries to my kit. Instead, I'm just replacing old batteries with new ones.

        Comments about Bescor NMH-54NC Side Kick Nickel Metal Hydride Battery:

        I have a couple of Bescor Lead Acid batteries but wanted a Nimh for a newer on camera light. I was pleasantly surprised by the small size. I guess I didn't read the product description carefully enough. I've always been happy with the Bescor batteries and especially this one because of the size and weight.

              Using this with a Lowell id video light - but for photography usage.

              Much smaller and lighter than I expected and does exactly what it says on the tin.

                It gave me the same recording possibilities that I had with 120v plug-in power, when that power was not available to me & I had to rely on battery power.

                This thing runs our light for about an hour but it gets very hot. Much smaller than the other Bescor battery we had.
