The Power Grid & XLR Audio Box with Dual L- Series Plates for Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera from IndiPRO Tools provides power to your Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera using two available Sony L-series type batteries (not included), and converts two XLR inputs to a 3.5mm stereo audio output to provide two channels of audio directly to your camera. The Power Grid System 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 Power Grid 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 blue 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.

Powers your Blackmagic Pocket Camera using two available Sony L-series type batteries.
The unit incorporates two adapters from XLR to a 3.5mm stereo mini. This allows you to record the signal from two XLR mics in the camera via the stereo input.
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, sold separately, 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 blue power LED provides confirmation that the Power Grid System is supplying enough voltage to power the camera.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from This is a follow up review Since my initial review I have used this power grid quite extensively now on many shoots from California to Florida to Mexico. The unit seems to be holding up pretty well so far, but I also take very good care of my equipment. I get the feeling that if you are someone who tends to be rough with your gear this thing won't last a second. One complaint that I do have about it is with the battery pins. When you slide the L-series batteries in to their holders the pins that make contact and actually enter the battery are not pins at all. They are very small flat strips of metal folded over to make a U shape. Why does this matter? They are much weaker than the pins you have on Sony equipment designed to go with these batteries. I have had one of the pseudo pins on the power grid bend on me several times now when I was in a run and gun situation setting up quickly. Another issue that I have had with this rig is the battery harnesses themselves. They do not secure the battery well. I had a $ NP-F970 battery fall out of the harness in the middle of a shoot and hit the ground. That battery cost almost as much as the harness, and it cracked once it hit the ground. Since that experience I have made a black elastic strap that I put around the entire rig once I have two batteries attached. It holds the batteries in place and gives me peace of mind that they won't fall out. This reminds me of another issue with the batteries. The unit only works if you have two batteries attached. This can be a pain if you are trying to lighten your rig. There have been instances where it would have been nice for me to be able to use just one 8hr NP-F970, but instead I have to attach two which adds some serious weight. Having said all that, the XLR jacks are great. They actually lock the XLRs in place with a release button. I think IndiPRO Tools has some work to do on this unit to make it a more reliable piece of equipment. Until they do this, I would not recommend this unit unless you want to either make your own elastic strap or worry about loosing batteries.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pleased with Purchase I needed audio for my pocket camera, I was referred to this product by BH, POWER/audio with Neitrik XLR audio connector, I have been using this unit for 2 weeks without any issues, I consider this a good buy, others are offering XLR systems with just audio for a lot more.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job I purchased this product to use with my Blackmagic pocket cinema camera. It does what I need it too. I do think it is overpriced for what you are getting, but I couldn't find anyone else who makes one that does the same thing. That is what you call monopoly.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Adequate & unfortunately the only option for me For my BMPCC I like using Sony L batteries. So me and anyone the same is stuck with the product. 1st its not horrible. It works as advertised. But it's flimsy so you need to be as careful with it, as you are with the plugs on the BMPCC. I've owned 2 and about to get my 3rd. the first took the brunt of a 18 inch fall when my tripod tipped over the the camera and company came down on a table top. That was it, one battery housing popped off and since two are needed in order for it to work, my first indie pro was a wrap. The second one was infuriating. I just took it out the box, put a battery into it, and didn't realize the contact tab from another device was stuck in my sony L-battery. Now I blame myself rightly, however I noticed Indiepro switched the tabs on these from a solid little piece of metal to the bent metal ribbon style. And I can't stop thinking if it were still solid the battery tab that I mistakenly crushed with the battery, wouldn't have bent so easily. Anyway thats how the second one died. Shoot budgets mean replacing these isn't the death of me, but I hate having another piece of fragile essential gear in the production mix. The lack of a robust option to connect batteries to my BMPCC is making me think of upgrading to an entire different brand of camera.
