If your filmmaking takes you across the country, or even across the globe, the Watson Pro Buddy System High-Load V-Mount Battery provides a high-capacity, yet air-travel-friendly solution. With the flip of a switch, the 198Wh battery pack splits in half, allowing it to comply with most airline carry-on regulations. The 15-amp maximum load on this battery can support cinema cameras rigged up with accessories, large LED lights, external recorders, or other on-set essential gear that uses a V-mount. Use the built-in D-tap and USB port to power accessories and charge mobile devices as well. Intelligent circuitry protection is built-in to prevent overloading, overheating, and short-circuits.

Buddy System Design

To accommodate for air-travel regulations on lithium-ion batteries, this battery pack can split in half. Once split, each half will fall below the capacity requirement to pass most air-travel security protocols.

Note: Both halves of each battery are serialized and are not interchangeable with other Buddy System batteries.

Accessory Ports

Not only will the battery power your camera or light, accessories can be powered simultaneously using the built-in D-tap and USB ports. The D-tap can output 12 volts at up to 10 amps for lens control systems, on-camera lighting, or other accessory. The USB port outputs 5V at 1 amp and can be useful to charge on-set electronics or mobile devices.

LED Status Indicator

Press the check button on the rear and LEDs will illuminate to indicate the current battery capacity.

Intelligent Circuitry

Intelligent circuitry constantly analyzes battery load and temperature, and will shut down to prevent damage from overloading, overheating, and short-circuiting.
