SWIT S-8U93 overview

  • 1Description

The S-8U93 Sony BP-U Series DV Camcorder Battery from SWIT functions as a replacement battery for the Sony BP-U90 and is compatible with the Sony PMW-EX1/3/F3/200/FS7/PXW-X160/180 series cameras. The battery exchanges digital information with your camera, allowing you to display remaining power information on the camera's viewfinder. A 14.4V nominal voltage provides an 86Wh / 6Ah capacity and an approximate 6-hour runtime when the LCD monitor is on.

A D-tap DC output socket enables you to connect an on-camera LED light, monitor, or wireless transmitter and receive power simultaneously with your camera. The D-tap socket can also be used as a charging input by the company's S-3010B portable charger. The battery features a 4-level LED power indicator for displaying the battery's remaining capacity and a 5V / 1A USB socket, creating a power station for your smart phone or tablet. The S-8U93 can be charged using the Swit S-3602U or Sony BC-U1 and charges from 0 to 100% in about 3 hours and 50 minutes. When using the SWIT S-3010B portable D-tap charger, the battery will take approximately 4 hours and 15 minutes to fully charge.

    SWIT S-8U93 reviews

    S-8U93 Sony BP-U Series DV Camcorder Battery is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great with Sony FS5 and Atomos Shogun simultaneously! I was curious to see if the battery can power both FS5 and my shogun simultaneously and it did. Battery without any connections gave me 5 to 6 hours of power. Battery connected to FS5 and Shogun (monitoring only) 4hrs 30min Battery connected to FS5 and shogun (recording to SSD) 3hrs. drains really quickly doing this. overall I am happy to use this one battery then multiple battery's on my camera and my field monitor. now I know i can use it to power things like a wireless video transmitter or LED light.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as advertised Using this battery with my FS-5 and is functioning perfectly - No issues. Have heard of some folks experiencing clock resets when using, but haven't had that issues with mine.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from It powers the camera, but... Obviously, it looks and feels cheaper than the Sony batteries. The added features of D-tap and USB are nice, but my biggest grievance is that it does not lock into my Fs7 the way a Sony battery does. So, it powers the camera, but the slightest tap knocks the battery out of place and shuts off the camera. So, this battery does the job on the tripod, but I'd be careful when handholding.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from WORKS GREAT ON MY FS7 Only used it once so far but it worked as expected. For a fraction of the price of the Sony batteries plus you get dtap and usb connectivity it doesn't even make sense to look at the Sonys

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from WORKS WITH SONY fs5 It works great, I don't need to reset the battery or any of the other problems I have heard about. Lasts to power Atomos and Fs5 for about 4-5 hours.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It just works These batteries have been bombproof on Sony F3 and using a blackmagic video assist recorder at the same time. I get about 2 hours recording time which is not bad at all. Very lightweight for how many watt hours they deliver. I've had the camera tell me once or twice that the battery wasn't recognized, and I would just remove and replace the battery and all was fine. Once or twice in about 20-30 days of shooting. So, not bad.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Doesn't work with Sony FS7 Read another review here on B&H that said they were using this on their Sony FS7. This is untrue, the Battery doesn't stick out and you can not attach the P-Tap do NOT buy for Sony FS7

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cheaper than Sony's So far so good. Used it on a shoot yesterday and it worked as intended. Shot for about 30 min total. Reviewed footage in camera w/ client repeatedly. Plenty of life for that and more. Works fine with the FS7, unlike the power 2000's I had on an EX3. Haven't used the usb or dtap but I'm comforted to know they are there.
