Core SWX PowerBase 70 Reviews

Quite Large

By Jacob

This battery should last for at least 8 days if size has anything to do with it. I tried using this on one shoot and just couldn't. I should have looked closer at the dimension and weight prior to ordering. The battery is larger and heavier than the a7s itself. If you were to buy the version with the 24 cable this would be great as a counter balance on a shoulder rig. Also as others have mentioned: THE BATTERY CHARGER IS SOLD SEPARATELY...which is strange.

love it

Works great with my a7s. Cords is perfect length for attaching to bottom of camera. The A7S kit DOES NOT come with a wall charger.

All Day Battery

I don't think I've ever been so stoked on an attachment. Today was the first day I've used it extensively. I shot a wedding and had my A7S running for over 7 hours. On it's 4 LED battery level display, all of them were still on. This little guy is a beast. The cord is a little short so it's best to put under the camera on your rig. If you want to use it as a counter-weight on a shoulder rig, get the 24.

Great solution

I have this bolted onto my Edelkrone rig, and it works great. Ran it for over three hours on location and it only went down to 3 lights (out of 5).

Solves the battery issue

Adding this PowerBase 70 basically makes the a7S the perfect camera for the money in my opinion. I moved over from the GH4 and the only thing I missed was the battery life. Now that I have the PB70 I can shoot all day on one charge. This investment is totally worth it.

question

can someone help me. who ever has used this with a7 series camera. (i have a7s). does the camera still give faulty battery % reading that conflicts with battery % reading on external battery? As in.. % of external battery is clearly 90% but sony monitor battery % lowers at higher speed.. eventually getting to 10% when external % is way above. Thanks

question

I am sure the answer is yes, but this will work with the normal Sony A7?
Asked by: Mike
The PowerBase 70 Battery for Sony a7S is compatible with the Sony A7 as well.

question

could this power the Atomos Shogun as well?
Asked by: kris b.
Yes, it has two d-tap ports. You would just need to buy an extra cable that goes from the ac to d-tap of the battery.

question

Hi! Is this also compatible with the A7s II? Also, what accessories have any of you used to attach it to your rig? Thank you!
Asked by: Cameron G.
Works with my A7RII, I'm sure it'll be fine with the A7SII, they all use the same kind of battery. Typically, I power the cam and a Atomos Shogun with this. The battery has a p-tap port, so you can power a wide range of devices.

question

How do I charge this battery? Do I need to buy the extra charger? Thank you very much!
Asked by: Michal
Yes, you do have to buy the charger. Great capacity on this battery.

question

Since the a7R II uses the same batteries as the a7S, can I assume this is compatible with the a7R II as well? Thanks!
Asked by: Steve T.
I have an a7S and an a7ii. The body style of the a7Rii matches closer to the a7ii (almost identical), and I can confirm that this cable for the a7S works with the a7ii. Beyond powering the camera, the important thing is that the battery door can accommodate the cable and still shut and lock. And it does!
