The SpectroLED Essential NP Battery Adapter from Genaray is a portable and economical solution for V-Mount equipped devices. This adapter allows you to use two Sony NP-F series batteries instead of a V-Mount battery, creating a more affordable powering method. The adapter's two battery bays have separate 24V, 4A fuses, which provide the unit with over-voltage protection.

Note: The adapter requires a minimum of 14V to operate properly and requires both batteries to be installed

    SpectroLED Essential Sony NP Battery Adapter for V-Mount Devices is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent and Cheap Solution for V-mount I bought this adapter so that I could use my two Sony NP batteries with my new Ikan LED light which accepts power from V-mount batteries. I don't yet have the budget to buy a V-mount battery and a charger so I went with this option as I had some NP batteries from @ laying around. One thing to note right away is you have to have two NP batteries in the device in order to use it to power equipment (at least this is true in my case when powering an Ikan LED light. Also both batteries should be the same brand/capacity. Mine are slightly different capacities so I am unsure if this will screw anything up but if you are purchasing this, go out and buy two of the exact same NP batteries just to be safe.) The device works as it should. Powers my light perfectly. The NP batteries lock in to place and there is even a battery test button which approximates how much power is left in the NP batteries displayed by four LED lights. The adapter is lightweight and made of hard plastic. There are separate fuses for each battery and it comes with four fuses total; two pre-installed and two extras. My problem with this adapter is that it DOES NOT LOCK FIRMLY INTO PLACE in the V-mount on my LED light. If you don't put a lot of pressure on this battery adapter, it is fine. but you can literally pull it out of the V-mount slot without disengaging the locking button on the V-mount plate. After doing this several times, I came to realize that it is probably most likely due to the plastic trapezoidal shape on the bottom of this adapter (see product photos to see what I'm talking about, its the part with three black screws in it in the middle of the bottom of the adapter.) There appears to be wear marks on it where the locking mechanism of the V-mount plate slips off this plastic trapezoid. Maybe you could replace it with a metal one as it appears to be held on with just three screws. Overall, it is a great, cheap alternative to buying an expensive V-mount or Anton Bauer battery. Definitely satisfied with the purchase although I would stray away from this product if you need a battery that must absolutely have 0% chance of falling off whatever it is you are powering. I am going to try and find a solution to this issues and will post a follow up if I figure something out.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Strike 3! I've had 3 of these and each one worked for about a month. After that they all started working intermittently so I had to revert back to using the AC power supply and unfortunately there's nothing similar to replace it with. Strike 3, they're out!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best NP ADAPTER I buy it with the Genaray Spectro light kit and work perfect, is really light and feels weak, but is pretty well build, it requires to be careful with it cause the material doesn't feel like hard shockproof, best in market with a reasonable price, I love it

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the job! Combine this and the appropriate batteries and you get hours of on location lighting with your LED light panel. Build quality is good, very lightweight.It locks into place and holds the batteries securely.
