      I recently purchased the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera (BMPCC) to shoot my MFA thesis film, and went ahead and bought a Pocket Cinema Camera battery to enhance the staying power of the camera in the field. Like most documentarians, I'm constantly shooting on location so it behooves me to ensure I have an adequate power supply. The Pocket Cinema camera comes with an AC power cord, but it's nearly impossible to know if you'll be able to run off house power even in the most controlled environment.After testing the battery, I'm placing an order for two more. The best thing about the Pocket Cinema Camera batteries are the price point. At $[$] apiece, they are an excellent value. I would recommend purchasing at least 2 to 3 extra batteries, which equates to upwards of 2 1/2 hours of additional shooting time.My advice to filmmakers: Power down the camera between each take. This will go a long way toward saving battery juice. Most of the power is used for cooling the camera's internal components, but the video display also takes a good deal of energy to keep up and running. Blackmagic Design prides itself on making professional camera gear accessible to everyone. The inexpensive nature of its accessories, like camera batteries, helps ensure filmmakers can achieve their personal vision without spending a fortune.Like the Blackmagic cameras, the batteries are small and lightweight, and add relatively little additional weight to your camera bag. All in all, the Pocket Cinema Camera battery is an inexpensive insurance policy on all of your Blackmagic camera shoots.

      This battery is hardly sufficient for any serious shooting get a powerpack for your Black magic pocket asap.

      Yeah it's cheap and charges quickly but it burns out too quickly, really unacceptable.

          Great price for an original battery. People complain about the life of BMPCC batteries but these are so small and affordable that it really makes no sense to use any other approach.

              I needed a back up for my Blackmagic Pocket cam and ordered this 3 days before the shoot. It arrived early and charged. This is my 5th purchase with B & H in the last year and they always handle things well.

              Comments about Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera Battery:

              A must have for the Blackmagic pocket cinema camera. I have 7 of these and they give me about 6 hours of run time. About 1 hour each with focus peaking on and screen at 60 percent brightness.

                I use this as a second battery for my BMPC. I charged them both for a full hour, however they read 100% charge after 40+ minutes. What surprised me is that they retain a 80% charge outside of the camera for about a week. They do drain in about 45 minutes during operation, which is to be expected with such a powerhouse camera. If possible purchase a battery docking station for your rig. 4 stars only because idk if brand name matters whatsoever.

                          Using with Blackmagic Pocket Cinema camera of course.
                          I've had mixed results from "bargain" third party EN-EL20 batteries in the BMPCC. Sometimes there are wide variances within the same third party brand.

                          These batteries all seem to be QCd to a standard. They all get between 50-60 minutes record time. Many third party brands only last 30-35 minutes in some cases.

                          These are good consistent quality batteries at a great price. Buy them by the bucketful. Eight can cover a typical shoot day.
