    i have searched high and low for a portable power unit like the switronix power supply system. B&H have been the only people to truly have the right equipment for all my filming needs. this unit charges my switronix battery pack which in turn powers both my monitor and my camera. this system also allows me to plug in to any location im at so that i dont drain the battery in case we have to shoot on the go. i would recommend this to everyone who is serious about shooting anything and is afraid of the battery running out before you get the perfect shot.

    Small put not powerful

    This is a great solution for people who travel, or the budget minded person.

    It does take a long time to charge a battery compared the much larger expensive chargers.

    This is a great solution for people who travel, or the budget minded person.

    It does take a long time to charge a battery compared the much larger expensive chargers.

    I'd recommend this if you need to travel light and if you are just starting out and need something cheap to charge your batteries, but to do not expect this to get the job done on set cause it takes a lot longer to charge then it does for the battery to run out.

    Very pleased with this battery. We rented a battery for almost $ every time we got it and this one was very affordable and works great. Shipping was a lot faster than I imagined. Very pleased customer.

        Pros: This product works great! I have been very pleased it will power the cinema camera in a time lapse mode for over 5 hours. The 1/4" mounts are strong and work great for mounting accessories.

        Cons: Does not come with a charger! You have to buy a charger separate or use an existing v-mount charger if you have one.

          I bought this bundled with the Switronix Battery for the BMCC. This was required to charge the battery, so you pretty much have to get it. The drawback is how expensive this is.

          rather than the v-mount battery docking stations, (that are very expensive) this is the only way to charge up my switronix v-mount battery. This simple charger feels over price for what it is, and should be included with the battery.

            If you have a Powerbase 70, you NEED this charger. There isn't another way to charge it without. But as far as how it works, it works perfectly. It charges in the time described in the description. Be sure to pick it up with the PB70.

              If you're using a black magic cinema camera, as I am, then you need one or more of the Powerbase chargers. It's frustrating that this is a separate purchase, but it works well. Again, this should come with the battery itself, but other than that, it works.

                      It works therefore the 5 starts. BUT why isn't Switronix including the charger with the battery? I guess it's in case you have other ways to charge their batteries but I don't know how many users didn't buy the charger with the battery.

                      And the 5 STARS really go to B&H on this since they include the charger for users free of charge! At least they did when I bought it.

                            I'm working for a TV company and we use the PB70C PowerBase for our BlackMagic cameras. The PowerBase Chargers charge them quickly, which is a huge plus, especially in this type of work environment where timing is crucial. We never had any problems with the Switronix equipment, I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is into production.

                              Used for multiple full days of shooting and didn't run out. Great design too.

                                Simply, a charger that charges the battery. No fuss. Simple. The item itself looks of ok quality. The connector part is sometimes hard to get into the plug of the battery, but it also makes the connection strong.

                                charges the battery nice and fast, no idea why you would want to get the full size annd a lot more expensive charger.
