SWIT S-8D58 overview

  • 1Description

The S-8D58 DV Battery from SWIT is a replacement battery for Panasonic's VW-VBD58 battery. It is compatible with Panasonic's P2 HD camcorders like AJ-PX270, AJ-PX285, and AJ-PX298. S-8D58 features a 5.5/2.1mm pole-tap DC output socket for 7.2 VDC (nominal) connection. Using this socket, you can connect an on-camera LED light, monitor, or wireless transmitter and get power from the camera. It also features a 5V/1A USB socket which can be used charging devices like a cell phone.

S-8D58 can be charged using Panasonic's original DE-A88 charger. It can also be charged using SWIT's S-3602D charger. Using these, it takes around 4 hours to completely charge the battery. S-8D58 can also be charged using SWIT's S-3010D portable pole-tap charger, though it will take 7 hours to reach a full charge.

    SWIT S-8D58 reviews

    S-8D58 DV Battery for Panasonic AJ-PX270, AJ-PX285, and AJ-PX295 Handheld Cameras is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than the original This battery performs just as well as the OEM Panasonic VW-VDB58 in my PX270 and DVX200 cameras. It gives the same run time and recharges equally fast. But there are two additional outputs (coaxial plug and USB) that also allow it to power accessories like wireless mic receivers and external monitors. (Unfortunately, on the DVX200, these outputs are not accessible because of the design of the camera's battery compartment. They are both usable on the PX270, however.) And it is less expensive than the Panasonic battery. I'll be buying more Swits in preference to the Panasonics in the future.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great alternative to OEM Battery and extra upgrades! These batteries are great. We purchased them as backups for the OEM battery that came with the Panasonic DVX200. The price was great and these batteries also have some extra functionality that the OEM battery does not. This includes a USB port, and also a DC in/out. You can use these ports to power additional items on your camera setup (such as a monitor or Wireless receiver). However, because of the design of the DVX200, you can't use the USB port while it's plugged into the camera (as the port is up against the wall of the battery compartment). It would be great to see SWIT put that USB port on the top side of the battery where the DC out and LED readout is in future models. This caveat may not be a problem with other camera models.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never thought I would be this excited about a Battery. Bought 2 batteries and the SWIT charging unit for my DVX-200. I do not regret this purchase. Along with the reliability, the multi-functionality of the battery itself is very handy. I've used the USB connection to power my ZOOM recorder while connected to a sound board during live events. It saves me loads on AA batteries.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for DVX200! Bought this for my Panasonic DVX200. Great thing is that it charges with DVX200 battery charger and has a power tap. Seemed to last about an hour longer than the Panasonic battery and recharged in about 2 1/2-3Hrs.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great with my DVX200 Got this as a backup battery for my Panasonic DVX200 and so far it works great and lasts longer than the one that came with the camera.
