Does the job

Use this battery to keep my external monitor on my video camera so I don't need electricity. Good for a few hours.

Good lasting battery

This is a far better option for NP-style batteries than the generics which tend to be erratic, or the Sonys which tend to be overpriced. The capacity readout seems to be mostly accurate and is a useful feature that all batteries should have.

Great for powering SmallHD Focus + BMPCC4k

The BMPCC4k with SmallHD Focus is an awesome travel and everyday setup. This battery powers both at the same time and lasts a couple of hours. Two or three of these should get you through a full day of filming

I would buy this battery again.

I have a number of these batteries and use them on several different pieces of equipment. They have a fuel gauge which is so valuable! I don't understand why every manufacturer doesn't do this. So far, performance is great.

Very good

Can I attach this battery to a Shinobi monitor and run a cable from the battery into my BMPCC4K? Thanks
Asked by: Warren
This battery does not have enough power to power both the monitor and the camera, but can power one at a time. If you would like to power both the camera and the monitor, we recommend using a V-mount battery.

Can I use this on a sony fs70 also running a kinotnkic evf?
Asked by: ry
No, sorry for the FS7, you need the SWIT S-8U63 Li-Ion Rechargeable Battery for Select Sony Cameras B&H # SWS8U63BS or the SWIT S-8U93 Sony BP-U Series DV Camcorder Battery B&H # SWS8U93. These are full featured with a power level, d-tap and USB ouput. NOTE: you must have this connector when being used on the FS7.
