    V-Mount Battery Bracket for Astra 1x1 LED Panel is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works fine, you should adjust XLR end. This works fine, and mounts onto the Astra's yolk nicely. However, the XLR that plugs into the head points up, which is the worst possible and most vulnerable position. This can be adjusted by unscrewing the cable end of the XLR housing, opening the metal side of it, and rotating the XLR female end. These really should be adjusted like this before sending out, especially since the Astra body/xlr mount isn't the most robust and is just asking to get damaged by a protruding power cable. Cable management isn't thought out very well on the Astra, so I find that I like to take off the AC supply when using batteries, otherwise there is a non-removable XLR cable that's thin enough to not seem durable, and is in the way. Lastly, like all Astra accessories, this seems way too expensive for what it is.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from only battery option for Astra (now) The lights arrived without the battery plates. It became apparent that there wouldn't be any gold mount battery plates any time soon. I called Anton Bauer and was given no information of any kind. I decided to switch entirely to Viper batteries with v-mount. Turns out the V-mount brackets for the Astra are made by Anton Bauer. They have worked just fine for the last week. I have been loyal to Anton Bauer since the late 70's, but I'm very happy with the v-mounts which also direct fit my sony camera and monitor. There are several battery options out there, and it appears that everyone will now be offering either mount system. If I can switch after 35+ years, anything is possible. My advice is to explore your options.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from A horrible up-sell for basic features The lite panel Astra has a number of horrible upsells - and this battery plate is one of them. It’s adding 10% to the cost of the unit just to be able to plug in a battery.� That said, it works fine. I wish it were integrated into the AC unit with a switch so that there were not two XLR power cables hanging off the unit.� Apart from some of these “Apple”-like add-ons, I really like the punch and light quality. Size is just that little too big and awkward to fit natively in my production bags. Yoke provides good flexibility to direct the light. Fan is nice and quiet.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Necessary add on. Can't say I was thrilled to pay $ for a battery mount. When you guys and gals get this and see what it is.... Trust me you will die a little inside. If you have a d-tap battery just get a 3 pin XLR and and hang your battery off the yoke in a grocery bag or whatever haha! Save your pennies. If your running red bricks with no Dtap on the brick, well you're SOL my friends. Pony up $! I don't like that you still have to run another cable from the v mount to the lite panel Astra. This means you have one more loose item to keep track of. Really poorly thought out. The main transformer cable just dangles ghetto fabulous from the side when running battery power. Yuck! However, the Astra still rules so dealing with some small inconveniences isn't all bad. Now secondly this is important. Astra uses surface mount LEDs which are higher current and pull more wattage than a standard 1x1. About 110-120 watts. You can't use a 98Wh brick at full power or it will shut down. ONLY turn the power up to 80%. I haven't tried this with a higher current battery such as a 160+ Wh v mount. Switronix makes a 130Wh that may do it as well. You're battery life is not as long as a standard 1x1 so have battery's ready to swap. All that said, the Astra is the best 1x1 I've used to date and well worth the price.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple and works but over-priced. Durability is yet to be seen as I've just started using it, but it does exactly what is says and is low profile and seems to work just fine. When you see how simple the device is, you'll realize why the price should be less than half, but that is true of many speciality products in this industry.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Does what it's supposed to Mounts easily with 4 screws onto the yoke. Definitely pricey for what it is. P-tap cable exits out the side and right-angle XLR works fine. I don't see any issues with cables like the other reviewer. Some cable ties keep it neat. On the underside of the bracket is a fuse which is nice.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple setup, works perfectly Installation is incredibly simply and it works exactly as you'd expect. Doesn't increase the profile of the Astra by much, if at all.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mount works This vmount attaches easily to the yoke of the Astra, does the job. It only has a single tap off of it.
