The Power Grid System Dual Sony-L Type Batteries Battery Plate for Pocket Cinema Camera from IndiPro Tools powers your Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera using two available Sony L-series type batteries. The Plate incorporates a clamp so you can mount it to LWS 15mm support rods and it features a right angle power plug to keep the cable neat and snug on the camera.

The plate itself features a two-sided design that mounts the batteries one on each face, two batteries are required to supply the necessary voltage to power the camera. The batteries securely snap in to the plate, and you must press a small tab to remove them. A green LED built into the plate lights up to indicate sufficient voltage to power for the camera. When used in conjunction with the camera's internal battery, you can hot swap the batteries without powering down the camera. The Power Grid System is Made in the USA.

Powers your Blackmagic Pocket Camera using two available Sony L-series type batteries.
Integrated rod clamp for LWS (light weight standard) 15mm support rods, allows you to mount the Power Grid System in a variety of positions.
Space saving battery plate that mounts available batteries face to face instead of side-by-side.
Batteries securely snap into place, and a release tab must be depressed to remove them, which means that the batteries remain attached during normal use.
A built-in green power LED provides confirmation that the Power grid system is supplying enough voltage to power the camera.

    IndiPRO Tools IPGRID-PKSONY reviews

    Power Grid System Dual Sony-L Type Batteries Battery Plate for Pocket Cinema Camera is rated 2.8 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Can't beat this external power source I use this exclusively to power my Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera. It's pretty much the only thing you can use it on without an adapter because of the BMPCC's unique input. The beauty of this device is that with both fully charged LP batteries attached you can film for hours and hours. I'm not sure how long since the last shoot I used it on we shot for 10 hours without any sign of requiring a battery swap. I have four batteries just in case they run out in the middle of the shoot but it hasn't even been close to a problem. Depending on your rig it makes for a great counterweight. There are only minor issues I've noticed so far: It won't power the camera without both batteries attached. Depending on the size of the LP batteries this can make it a little awkward positioning the plate if you are using a shoulder rig. However, I would definitely recommend this piece.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from It worked great, until it dropped and stopped I used this with my Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera and it was great, it was a little sung on the rails, but over all worked. I wasn't crazy about the led battery indicator which always stayed lit, but i figured the drain on the Sony-L's was so low it didnt matter. But suddenly tonight it stopped working. This is about 10 days after it dropped cracking the plastic cradle that held the batteries in on one side. The wire for that battery mount didnt break so I felt lucky, but i guess it's time was up with the drop. So that frailty plus the need to have both batteries in to make it work, mean it would have gotten a 4 star from me. As is, broken I still give two, but now I'm looking for a more durable option.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't allow the Pocket to turn on It does something funky to the camera. I can't turn the camera on when plugged in. I have to have a battery in the camera, turn it on, and then connect the grid to it. Very inconvenient. I'm not sure if it's too high of a voltage, or what is going on. It's also all plastic besides the rod clamp which would make me concerned that the box would break from the mount clamp.
