The Anton Bauer Digital 150 Gold Mount Battery (14.4V, 156 Wh), along with the rest of the Digital Battery Series, represents a major makeover for Anton Bauer, featuring a redesign in several aspects over previous series. The result is a long-lasting, sleek and ergonomic, smart, and safe series of batteries, projected for 1000 charge/discharge cycles. The Digital 150 runs on lithium-ion Sanyo cells which Anton Bauer has found to be highly reliable for them in the past. One of the major changes is a reconstruction of the honeycomb interior, built very spacious and housing the cells physically separated from one another, each individually wrapped in its own plastic case and isolated from the others. This ensures that any potential damage to one cell will have no effect on the others, huge for safety. The additional space in the honeycomb also serves to allow more airflow between the cells, effecting more heat dissipation, which will keep the cells cooler and protect them from aging faster.

As another safety precaution, for instances of above average weather conditions, multiple sensors are built in that detect when the battery is too hot or too cold and trigger a shut down until the temperature is back to normal, at which point the battery automatically turns back on. Designed to the demands of broadcast and cinema digital cameras, the Digital Battery Series employs an algorithm that addresses the issue of "ringing" common to digital cameras. Where batteries are commonly susceptible to sporadic bursts of excess power draw, similar to how a car eats up more gas when the gas pedal is hit too hard, this algorithm smoothes out the power draw, in turn affording longer lasting, more predictable runs with a particular camera and overall longer life.

The Digital Battery Series is compatible with the concurrently released Performance Series of chargers and with all previous Anton Bauer chargers. Used with any of these chargers, via a feature that has become common to the Anton Bauer name, the Digital 150 exchanges certain digital data with the charger that allows the selection of the best charge routine possible for the battery's cell chemistry, maximizing overall life. Via another familiar Anton Bauer feature, the Digital 150 applies a continuous and constant calibration that enables it to provide more and more accurate capacity and run-time calculations over the life of the battery. Run-time is usefully reported in hours and minutes on an easy-to-read LCD when power is being drawn, and as a percentage value when no load is attached. The reporting in hours and minutes will only get more and more precise with each use as a result of the constant calibration feature.

The aesthetics have also taken a redesign, with the body shaped ergonomically for a comfortable hold and modern look, and the outer jacket made of rubber that provides a good grip as well as a cushion against accidental drops. The case is made of high-impact polymer, which is the same material used in motorcycle helmets. A P-Tap output is available for powering accessories.

Digital 150 Gold Mount Battery (14.4V, 156 Wh) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from New Anton Bauer Digital 150 Using this new battery on a Varicam 2700. It is a battery hog, and this battery holds it's own. I like the new look, but wish I would have known I could of gotten black on black colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality Several years ago, I was concerned how The Vitec Group's acquisition of the Anton Bauer brand would impact the quality of their products, but I am quite impressed with the build quality of these redesigned Gold Mount units. Very lightweight but solidly constructed. Best of all, my Quad charger still works with the new batteries (as long as I upgrade the firmware chip).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Goofy Looking Battery Goofy looking battery but seems to work very well. I am using my Titan and Quad battery chargers. The Titan works great and my Quad will charge it fine and it reads the data from the battery but it thinks its a Dionic 90. (??) Seems to work though. I will be buying more as I replace my older AB batteries.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Anton Bauer Quality Not thrilled with the design of this brick, but the price is pretty solid for a 156wh battery with the Anton Bauer name on it. when fully charged the display says it will run my HPX-300 for 9:45. That's some impressive run time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Battery of the Future! Waited a long time for this. Battery runs my Panasonic AG-HVX for 3.5 hours. Honeycomb cell inside with soft plastic exterior so you don't hit someone's head too hard when engaged as a news warrior
