The Bescor BM-EPIC Battery & Charger for the Blackmagic Camera is the BM-LiON clip-on battery pack and a universal charger. A 3 foot long wire with a 2.5mm barrel connector extends from the battery pack for connection to the Blackmagic Cinema Camera, and a military style clip on the back of the pack enables clip-on attachment to belts, rigs, and other gear.

The battery is a 14.8V lithium-ion that operates between 12V and a peak of 16.8V. It will provide the camera with approximately three to four times the power of the camera's internal battery, which lasts 90 minutes in average applications.

        I haven't been able to use this yet due to the BMPCC has failed to arrive. I cannot report on how well it works or how long it powers the BMPCC. Product ships with no instructions, ac power brick for 110ac only. Took a few hours to fully charge battery on arrival.Stock cable is is only about 3 ft in lenght, you must purchase the cable extension BCS-BM-CPC to use clipped to belt. No mounting provided for rig mounting. Seems to be best solution for BMPCC battery woes.

            Comments about Bescor BM-EPIC Battery & Charger for the Blackmagic Camera:

            Great buy. I've tested it with my blackmagic production camera 4K ef mount, and from what I've seen, it lasts 5.5 hours with the camera continuously on, and 4.5 hours with the camera continuously on and recording.

            Only downside is that it comes with a small belt clip, instead of being able to attach with a plate- although that may not be a bad thing if you're just using it for run and gun type shooting, where you don't want to deal with a plate.

            Comments about Bescor BM-EPIC Battery & Charger for the Blackmagic Camera:

            BM users have been struggling for a while now for cheap, but reliable external battery solutions. This system gives you a good 4 additional hours for the blackmagic, which is amazing for only 200 bones. So far this seems like the best choice, but for me, there are some drawbacks. First, I feel the cable should be about 6 inches longer. One annoying case I ran into with this battery was that I was hand holding the camera above my head, while the battery was clipped to my belt, I was pretty much out of cable so I feel this needs to be fixed in two possible ways. Either add length to the cable to cover all possible scenarios, or add an additional hot shoe mount so I can just slap that ish right on top of the camera. Boom. Problem solved. The belt clip is nice but at the end of the day it just makes you look like a nerd, so Bescor, please put a hot shoe mount on this and it's GOLD.

                    Easy, designed for the BMCC and gives at least 4 additional hours of use. It has not level, though it will show on the camera which is a OK meter. I have not seen it go below 100% in the handful of times I have used it.

                        This is a great battery for a very low price. I tested it when I received it for about 4 hours and it still wasn't empty. Would definitely recommend it with the BMCC.

                          Battery is great for the price. Only thing missing is an overall power left grid to show you how much juice is still available. Charge also takes a while but so far getting about 5 hours of extended battery life.
