This B&H Kit packages the Dolgin Engineering TC200-SON Two-Position Charger with two Sony NP-F970 L-Series batteries. This combo provides a quick-charging solution for powering any NP-F970–compatible camera. The TC200-SON charger features simultaneous charging for up to two batteries with an approximate 4.5-hour charging time. This charger is also compatible with NP-F975, NP-F770, and third-party models. It has front-panel LED status lights, and it accepts 100-240 VAC power as well as 12 VDC power (via an optional adapter).
For better battery management while shooting, the Sony NP-F970 battery's Info-Lithium system displays remaining battery time in minutes in the EVF and on the LCD of compatible cameras. These 7.2V lithium-ion batteries will not develop a memory and can last for up to 12 hours on a single charge.
Dolgin Engineering TC200 Two-Position Simultaneous Battery Charger for Sony L-Series
The TC200-SON Battery Charger from Dolgin Engineering features integrated battery plates that support Sony and third-party NP-F970, NP-F770, and NP-F975 batteries. These batteries are used with Sony's HD1000U, Z5U, Z7U, MC2000U, NX5U, HDRFX7, and FS700R cameras.
The TC200 has semi-independent channels and allocates more power to the battery that needs it the most first. Once battery levels are equal it charges both batteries simultaneously with equal power distribution. The result is that all batteries will be ready at the same time. Based on a capacity of 5600mAh, this particular model delivers a complete charge in approximately 4.5 hours to a single battery or both.
The charger comes with a U.S. power cord and supports worldwide power input via optional plug adapters, as well as 12VDC car lighter power via an optional car lighter adapter (model # DE_CAR_12).
Sony NP-F970 L-Series Info-Lithium Battery Pack (6300mAh)
Small and lightweight, Sony's NP-F970 Info-Lithium Battery Pack (6300mAh) provides the advantages of lithium-ion, meaning it can be charged or discharged at anytime without developing memory effect. This means the battery never loses its ability to hold a full charge. The NP-F970 displays remaining battery time on the LCD as well as in the viewfinder by continuously communicating with the camcorder. The battery lasts for up to 12 hours on a single full charge. Sony's Info-Lithium battery packs have a built-in micro processor that accurately calculates remaining battery life in minutes.
