    Core SWX PTC-LPE6 reviews

    D-Tap Cable for Devices Using Canon LP-E6 Batteries is rated 2.9 out of 5 by 15.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from If you don't like your cables catching fire, look elsewhere I originally purchased one of these Core SWX cables around a year ago, and after about 6 months it randomly quit working. Since it was under warranty, I reached out to Core SWX (Switronix at the time) to have it replaced. The customer service was good and I had a new one at my door in under a couple weeks. I received the new power cable, and again it worked great initially.� Fast forward a couple months later, I plug the D-Tap side of the cable into a regulated Blackmagic Design V-Lock plate, and then the dummy battery side into the back of a SmallHD 702 monitor and I can't seem to get power. I reseat the battery side and try to power the monitor on once again. This time, instead of a functioning screen I hear a loud pop and see smoke coming out of the back of the battery. I quickly unhook the Core SWX cable from the monitor and see plastic on the back of the battery begin to melt. Thankfully it didn't ruin the monitor, but if I waited much longer I believe it very well could have. To top it off, I sent Core SWX an email and pictures explaining yet another problem, however this time their customer service did not return any of my emails. If you plan on purchasing this cable to power a camera or an expensive monitor, BE ADVISED.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is an awesome way to power a smallHD 702. I dont have or use any Canon batteries (life long Nikon man...working with only v-mount or Anton Bauer p-tap accessories...and this is perfect. The coil keeps it tidy without having to make little loops that you tie or Velcro to the camera. It's long enough for both large and small camera builds. I use it for my smallHD 702. I have a similar cable for the Sony batteries, but it's nice to have a backup/spare (since the 702 accepts both Sony and Canon batteries).

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cable had no safety holding it in the connector The solder on each connector pulled out of the p-tap because there is no safety to hold the cable inside the p-tap. All of the tension is directly pulling on the soldered connectors. Also the lp-e6 itself is extremely tight in everything I've plugged it into.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, but not going to last I use this with my SmallHD 502 and 702 Bright. No complaints. It's regulated and coiled, which I really like. But I can tell it won't last long as the shielding is starting to separate from the dummy battery.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Does the job but not forever This LP-E6 tap works perfectly and has fit both my 502 and 702 monitors without issue, I've never lost power and it performs its function as advertised. That being said, I don't see this cable making it through the summer, after four weeks of intensive field use the cable shield has separated from the d-tap housing, exposing the wires. I need my cables to handle relentless use and I'm disappointed that after two long shoots in the field this cable is showing signs of wear. Worth mentioning it still performs its function.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Badly made, won't last I agree with Ryan's review. I too experienced the same issue. I was on set shooting a feature film and this was plugged into my SmallHD 702 and suddenly I hear a pop followed by burnt smell. Luckily it didn't damage my SmallHD. Lasted for about 6 months. This doesn't seem to be a one-off issue as multiple people are reporting this.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Streamlines battery flow *except for one design flaw Cool, cheap solution for powering SmallHD 502...BUT I'm taking away 1 STAR because the cable doesn't come out the bottom of the LP-E6 connector. It looks like SmallHDs lp-e6 to d-tap solution is the only one that fixes this problem...but their cable looks pretty bogus. Bummer yo.
