B&H Photo has put together the Switronix PowerBase 70 Battery Pack Kit to make HD recording more efficient. When you purchase a Canon EOS 5D Mark II or 7D Digital SLR camera, the factory includes a Lithium-ion battery pack. However when using these cameras for HD (High Definition) movie recording, the battery supplied with the camera can often not provide enough power for extended shooting time. This kit, which includes a battery and charger, will help streamline the HD movie recording experience.
Switronix PowerBase 70 Battery for Canon LP-E6 Cameras (12" Cable)
Power your Canon LP-E6 type camera as well as a variety of accessories with the Switronix PowerBase 70 Battery, which attaches on the bottom of the camera using an included mini quick release plate, and connects to the camera via a battery paddle with a 12" cable. It will provide a much longer runtime than the camera's original battery as the lithium-ion cell is rated at 14.8V and 77Wh. Also, the regulator block attaches to the side of the battery for convenience.
Powering of 12V accessories is handled by two P-Tap outputs, which can also be used for lower voltage items through the use of optional XP power regulation able. Additionally, it has a four LED power indicator and features a V-mount adapter on the back for use directly on compatible battery plates.
