The PB70--T2i PowerBase-70 Battery Pack for Canon T2i / T3i / T3 Cameras from Switronix contains a 70Wh, 14.8V Lithium-ion battery designed to extend HD movie recording time. It also comes with the GP-DV-T2i Interchangeable Regulator Block with a 12" cable. The PowerBase-70 delivers 6 times more power than the original battery supplied with the camera.

It is also intended to streamline your High Definition (HD) movie recording: the PowerBase-70 mounts under the camera and doubles as a grip, or can be attached to a camera support via its 1/4"-20 release plate or V-mount.

    Comments about Switronix PB70-T2i PowerBase-70 Battery Pack for Canon T2i / T3i / T3 Cameras:

    First off I recieved this today and it works great! I'm using it with my Canon T3i and a power tap on my 7" HD LCD monitor and have had it on for about 4 hours today to play with it.

    (Note) I will update this review as I complete a week long shoot I will be doing this next week, until then these are my current thoughts.

    -The Cons-
    The construction is full plastic, and for the most part was solid, until I went to plug in the charger (not included if you didn't read that) it was pretty tight and required a small amount of wiggling their mold might be been a little off. I got it on, and charged the unit without a problem. Upon removal I realized the entire tap had snapped off of the plastic housing I have attached a photo of it. I glued it back together and will allow it to dry overnight before I try it again but for now it's a very expencive paperweight.
