This B&H kit puts together three Switronix products: an XP-L90S V-Type 14.4VDC Lithium Battery, a PB70C PowerBase Charger, and a Powertap BlackMagic Converter Cable. The kit is designed to be an end-to-end power solution for 12V devices with field applications, such as the BlackMagic Mini Converter HDMI to SDI.
From the battery, the cable inputs unregulated 11-17V DC power via its Power Tap (P-Tap) connection, and outputs regulated 12V power to devices that require it, such as a BlackMagic Design Mini Converter. The Powertap cable also features a female P-Tap to supply 11-17V DC power to an additional device.
The XP-L90S is a V-Mount (Sony-style) Lithium Ion battery that supplies 14.4V DC power and features a 90Wh capacity. The kit's included PB70C PowerBase (9-250V AC) fully charges the battery in 4-5 hours.
The Switronix Powertap BlackMagic Converter Cable (24") comes with a regulated 12V connector jack to power the Black Magic Mini Converter with an inline female P-Tap connector for 12VDC, and features both red and green LED indicators to display battery power status. It can be used with a Switronix accessory or individually with a PRO-X series Lithium Ion battery, and is housed in an enclosure.

The Switronix XP-L90S is a 14.8V lithium-ion V-mount battery with a 98Wh capacity that can be transported carry-on without restrictions under IATA, ICAO, and UN regulations. The XP-L90S features a P-Tap output for powering 12V DC accessories, and a USB port capable of outputting up to 3A at 5V for powering/charging mobile and other devices. The battery automatically detects the camera load and calculates run-time and displays remaining power via a 4-LED power gauge.
The 14.8V output eliminates all 12V battery cutoff problems. For smaller cameras too low in voltage for this battery, Switronix offers optional voltage regulation cables such as the XP-DV-S20.
