Anton Bauer Performance Dual Overview

The Anton Bauer Performance Series Dual Charger V-Mount allocates the most power to the highest-charged battery first, ensuring that you'll have a fully charged battery as soon as possible. The Performance Series is 40% more efficient than previous Anton Bauer chargers by employing faster processing, using a smaller transformer in the power supply, and drawing less amps.

This V Mount version was designed to support the concurrently released Digital Battery Series V Mount models. It's capable of simultaneous, multi-chemistry charging, which will be useful if Anton Bauer releases V Mount models of different chemistries in the future. (Anton Bauer provides no guarantees that third party V Mount models will safely be supported.) Common to the Anton Bauer name, a feature called InterActivity allows the charger to communicate with an Anton Bauer battery and assign the best charge routine possible based on the battery's cell chemistry and the best termination algorithm possible (TCO, -ΔV temperature compensated VCO, dT/dt, CCO, FUL, or I-min), ensuring better overall life. A 4-pin XLR output allows you to power your camera right out of the charger via an XLR cable or converter cable. This can be done off of wall power at the same time as charging your batteries or off of attached batteries if the charger is unplugged. The batteries in the latter case are hot swappable so you can power your camera with uninterrupted power.

The charger features a simple-to-use, touchscreen display that provides activity and status updates and access to management functions. It also supports an optional Wi-Fi software feature that will allow you to remotely manage the health and status of one or more Performance Series chargers.

Anton Bauer Performance Dual Reviews

Great Charger but Big Profile

By Mason
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2018-03-19

We bought this more as a portable charger, but it was much bigger then expected. We also have quad chargers which are flat and really a smaller profile overall (but 4 charging ports were overkill). After traveling with this unit (flying) we were happy with the weight and it was pack-able enough. The handle is molded in and it feels as one complete unit, solid enough for the road and air. So overall we're really pleased with how strong the unit is and the performance is exactly what we expected - excellent. Nice digital readouts with charging info. A solid purchase.

Good quality product as you might expect from Anton Bauer. Performs as described. I am currently using with new Digital Series 90 battery as well as older Dionic batteries. I like that it has upgradable software for future recognition of other battery types. Also like it's ability to provide continuous power to your camera when charged batteries are attached even if the AC is disconnected. A UPC backup. I do wish the manual was better. I think they tried to keep it simple but in doing so made it difficult to understand what the different features are. There are several charging modes, none of these are clearly described in the manual. Searching on-line for a better explanation was futile. Overall very pleased though so far.

I've had my AB Titan TWQ for I don't even remember how long, and never had a single issue. I wanted to switch to the new AB Digital 90's, but alas, my old standby wasn't compatible 100%. Ordered the new Performance Series and was totally blown away by it's features, price & looks. Works with all of my older dionics and especially well with the new digitals. Great job AB!

This was the ticket for us. I couldn't believe how fast the batteries actually charged. We use 150s and they're ready to go in almost no-time.

It's Big!

This charger is ridiculously large. I'm used to the tandem chargers from Anton Bauer that easily fit in a bag when you travel. This thing is massive. Other than its size it seems like a great charger. There's an LCD that indicates the status of both batteries and it looks like in the future there will be some WiFi functionality. My other complain is the lack of the ability to un-charge batteries. Anton Bauer put this in the quad version of this charger, but didn't put it in the two position charger. This feature brings down the charge level in order to transport batteries in some circumstances.

Best Charger yet from Anton Bauer!

Simple you use, touch screen and a 4 pin powered out port makes it useful. Four pin out also pulls from batteries attached to charger, great new feature

Finally Handling My Power Issues

By Norman

In building my production capability, I have tried to acquire the best quality for the best price. I have put off buying professional battery equipment in favor of spending on cameras, lenses, lights, audio equipment. It killed me to think about spending thousands on batteries. But alas, I bit the bullet, or at least started to by buying this dual charger and a Digital 90 Battery. It's a relief. I spent the money and now I have reliable power to my Ikan 500 LED and my Blackmagic cameras. The charger is fast and has a great readout so you know the progress of the charge on your battery. I plan on getting a lot more batteries and now that I have a professional dual battery charger, I will have all my batteries in tip top charged condition!

question

If this charger is 40% more efficient, does it charge a battery 40% faster that the Anton Bauer LP2?
Asked by: Scott
As I understand it the charge rate for this charger should be the same as the LP2. You just get the screen with a nice menu and the promise of more functions at some point in the future. I've been impressed with both the batteries and the charger, and it does charge both my 90 and 150's very fast. My only complaint would be the physical design. Because of it's awkward shape finding a case to transport it in is not easy. It's a minor point and I am happy with this product, just a consideration.

Unfortunately, there is no available information if this is possible and the manufacturers are either unable or unwilling to say. Only third party testing can answer this question.

question

Does this Anton Bauer Performance Series DUAL Charger Gold Mount have the same built in discharge charging capability as the Quad version of this charger? I ask because the discharge feature is required by the TSA's rule that batteries be depleted to the 30% or less for air travel.

I thought it would, but it does not.

question

PLEASE advise me which ANTON BAUER battery charger I should purchase to charge my ANTON BAUER CINE 150 Gold Mount batteries? Should I purchase the ANTON BAUER LP2 Dual Gold Mount charger, or the ANTON BAUER Performance Series Dual Charger? Thank you
Asked by: GIOVANNI S.
This charger, B&H # ANPERFDUAL, will work well with the Anton Bauer CINE 150, B&H # ANC150GM. However, if you prefer the batteries going on top of a charger, not hanging off of the sides, B&H # ANLP2DGMC is a better choice.https://bhpho.to/2imXJ4T

question

Can I charge other brand batteries on here? I have two AB and two Switronix batteries
Asked by: Lucas
At this time, there is no available information if this is possible. Only third party testing can answer this question. You can test at your own risk. However doing so will probably void the warranty and any damage will not be covered.
