The BPL-60 offers 65Wh of power, which can power the average professional camcorder for 160 minutes.
Professional camcorders operate on a 12-volt system. As per their design, a majority of camcorders will activate a low voltage warning or even cease to operate when they determine that the battery has fallen below 11-volts. Most equipment manufacturers suggest that a higher voltage battery should be used whenever possible.
All Sony DVCAM and Betacam SX camcorders include a V-Mount battery connection. The V-Mount allows the battery to mount securely to the camcorder, yet it also allows the operator to easily remove the battery with one hand. The V-Mount has become so prevalent, that other battery manufacturers have adopted it.
