                It's an Anton Bauer battery - it does what it's supposed to do! Our staff blew through a couple older versions of this battery and we needed to replace. It works great and has better display functionality that the prior iterations. It's also lighter.

                  Not too much to say, you get what you pay for. I use these with my full size cameras and on Litepanels. They work well, and I like the 'fuel guage' I highly recommend them.

                      Comments about Anton Bauer DIONIC-HC Lithium-Ion Battery:

                      I use this battery on a rod system to power everything on the rig: camera (Sony FS7), viewfinder (Zacuto Gratical), wireless video (Paralinx Triton), wireless FF (Heden Carat) and it lasts for 3-4 hours. No need to keep track of lots of tiny batteries and having accessories die out at random intervals.

                      It's extremely handy to have the built in LCD on the battery tell you how much time is left based on the current power draw.

                      A great advantage to AB batteries over say having a lot of Canon or Sony brick batteries is that it only takes roughly 2 hours to charge the Anton Bauer, whereas it takes AGES to charge Sony NP-F970 or Canon BP-970G batteries.

                      All in all, it's one less thing to worry about on set, which means I can focus on other things.

                      The best on the market. Long life, and pretty light weight. A little bit pricey, but worth it.

                          Anton Bauer is a little pricy but certainly among the best. I got these to go with my new camera and new led light kit (that can be powered by battery). They are smaller and lighter than I expected from my older larger versions.

                          My JVC camcorder draws 23 watts and this high quality, lightweight battery powers it for hours. I was inclined to go with the Anton Bauer and not the imitations and I think it was the right choice.

                            Best batts I've ever used, including all AB and others included. Holds a charge for longer than Dionics and Hytrons. The led display is very accurate, if it says 2 hrs while in use, you really have 2 hrs. Would and will buy again

                                I use these batteries daily and can always depend on them.
                                I especially like the side battery LCD. It lets me know how long the batteries has left. It taked in to consideration the pull from the battery is. It then calculates the time. Great feature.
                                The price is not so great. They avery expensive but the quility is very good.

                                  Excellent construction, great functionality and solid connection. Expensive but worth it.
