Battery Failing After 3 Months

By David
Rated 1 out of 5
Date: 2022-02-24

After 3 months of use, the battery is beginning to fail. I have not let it drain and keep it charged weekly. Now, while the device is plugged into my camera and I also have it connected to a power source the battery will drain and my camera turns off. The battery takes a long time to charge. So, it doesn't even work as just a straight power source cable.

Similar to other reviews posted, the battery in my unit failed to charge when I last went to use it rendering it unusable. My unit is out of warranty and no replacement was offered when I contacted the manufacturer, so it will now make it's way to the electronics recycling depot ...... Would not recommend purchasing this unit unless either the quality of the unit is improved, or the manufacturer offers 3+ years warranty to better share the risk with the purchaser.

Unreliable and short lasting

Pathetic product quality. I don't recommend buying this at all. Buggy cell. They should make it a replaceable cell. My camera was running longer on the actual battery that with this product. Again, I always keep the battery powered on (learned from the other reviews not to keep it powered down).

Works Great

Coupled with the camera appropriate cable, this system works great. If you do long time-lapses it is a must have. If your external power-pack is running low simply switch it to a new one without the camera losing power. I'm probably going to pick up another system for my wife's camera.

Ugh!  I too should have learned my lesson the first time.

I bought a second one after the first died and thought I was plugging it in often enough.. but sure enough the second one died too within a year of purchase. Don't waste your $100 unless you really need it for one profitable job and don't expect to use it at a later date.

DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT

I cannot adequately express my frustration at the unreliability of this product. I have (stupidly) owned two ( I didn't learn my lesson from the first one ) and BOTH of them crapped out. I was told by Tether Tools that if you don't REGULARLY plug this in to keep the battery topped off it will die. I guess it's like babysitting a sourdough starter, you have to nurse it every day. Well, I'm NOT a professional photographer and want to use things like this system maybe 3-4 times a year. But I also have numerous other photo devices (intervalometers, trackers, etc. etc.) with batteries that DONT have to be nursed every day. Bottom line, I suppose if you use this thing every day and keep it topped off, it might work fine for you. Otherwise, If you go a month without using it, I WILL NOT CHARGE and is totally useless. Save your money.

Once the internal battery dies, you're out of luck. Yellow light now showing on my 2 yr old unit which indicates the battery is not able to fully charge and this results in erratic performance with D850 in live mode. Recognizing the typical lifespan of batteries, you will probably be replacing the $99 unit every couple of years. Appalling that there is no means to simply replace the internal battery .

Works well!

question

Will this product work with name brand DC couplers? For example, I have the Panasonic DMW-DCC8 and DMW-DCC6 couplers for my FZ1000 and FZ80 respectively... will this product plug into these DC couplers, or would I need to buy the DC couplers made by Tether Tools?
Asked by: Zeb E.
I have two of these that I run on GH5 and GH5s's using the Anker 13,000mah pack. I have only tested it with the Tether Tools adapter, but it sounds like it should work with the Panasonic adapter equally from what I read. I actually ran full tests just this week. On the GH5s at 4K/30p/100mbps with the display screen open/on, I shut it off when the Case Relay was red but still running at 7 hours and 50 minutes! I also tried on the GH5 and was getting around 7 hours or so. I ran the GH5 with the Panasonic XLR adapter and two SM81 mic's on phantom power and it ran for 6 1/2 hours continuous.

We have not tested it on a Teradek Vidiu. I'm not sure if the connector is the right size or if it will power it correctly.

question

What is the order you use this system? To you have the external battery on first, then connect to relay, put dummy into camera then turn camera on? It's so temperamental, and when you set up for a 10 - 12 hour time-lapse, it needs to work the first time, overtime, otherwise, it's a waste of a day. Soem assistance here would be greatly appreciated.Using a 2.1 Amp power pack with a sony A7rii. Cheers
Asked by: Graeme
First you must ensure the case relay battery is charged FIRST. If you don't your camera can shut down prematurely. It happened to me the first time I used it for an important shoot. Make sure that your external battery is fully charged too. I used the Tether Tools battery https://<a href= http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1235869-REG/tether_tools_rsbp10_rock_solid_10_000_mah.html target= _blank >www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1235869-REG/tether_tools_rsbp10_rock_solid_10_000_mah.html</a> I ran my Nikon D500 for about 5 1/2 hours continuously with the live view on in 4K video mode. That draws more power than if you were doing time-lapse. Put your dummy battery into the camera first, then connect the case relay battery to the dummy battery connection, then connect your external usb battery to the case relay battery. If you have more than one external usb battery you should be able to swap it out when the first one runs down.
