IDX System Technology DUO-C98 overview

  • 1Description

This B&H Kit is assembled to provide you with two V-Mount batteries and a portable charger. It includes two 96Wh V mount batteries and a two bay sequential charger. The batteries support a total discharge of 10A between the V mount, D-Tap, and USB ports, making it well suited for use with power hungry devices, and one of the battery's D-Taps can also be used to charge it using an optional trickle charger. Battery data information displays in most cameras viewfinders.

The included charger supports either lithium-ion or NiCd batteries. It features fanless operation, so it is quiet and won't disturb your sound recordist. In addition to sequentially charging your batteries, the charger can also be used as a power base; what that means is that you can feed the charger's 4-pin XLR from the batteries. This feature does not work when the batteries are charging, and it is useful when there is no power available and you want to distribute the camera load across multiple batteries.

  • 2 x IDX System Technology DUO-C98 96Wh High-Load Battery with D-Tap Advanced, Standard D-Tap & USB Port

    The IDX DUO-C98 96Wh High-Load Battery with D-Tap Advanced, Standard D-Tap & USB Port features a V-mount and is only 2.3" thick, but packs 96Wh of capacity to power your professional devices. It is well suited for handheld gimbal and aerial applications, as well as run-and-gun productions where size and weight can become an issue. Battery data information displays in most camera's viewfinders.

    The DUO-C98 can handle a combined load of up to 10A among its V-mount, D-Tap outputs, and USB port. One of the D-Taps can also be used to charge the battery, although that requires an optional charger that is not included. Designed with battery circuit protection against overcharge, over-discharge, over-current, and exposure to high temperatures, providing protection to your battery from the rigors of production. A 5-LED battery life indicator on the side of the battery provides a quick visual indication of charge state of your battery.

    Key Features
    • Suitable for handheld gimbal, aerial, run-and-gun, and other productions that need a high-power-draw battery in a small package

    • Handles up to 10A loads
    • Two unregulated D-tap accessory outputs at 50W each
    • USB port
    • Battery circuit protection
    • 5-LED battery life indicator

  • IDX System Technology VL-2X 2-Channel V-Mount Charger & Power Supply

    The IDX VL-2X 2-Channel V-Mount Charger & Power Supply supports lithium-ion and NiCad batteries and features three modes of operation. Charger mode provides sequential charging, automatically switching to the second battery after fully charging the first. It delivers up to 2.7A of quick-charge current without the noise of a typical charger thanks to a fanless design. Power Supply mode offers up to 36W of DC power via a 4-pin XLR output. Power Base mode allows you to power the XLR output off of attached batteries, without having to connect the charger to a power outlet. The three modes can only be used independently.

    This portable desktop charger is designed with reliable internal safety features that protect both the battery and charger from damage should faulty or misused batteries be placed on the charger. It will automatically stop charging if any attached battery reaches an overvoltage condition.

IDX System Technology DUO-C98 reviews

Two 96Wh High-Load Battery Kit with 2-Bay Battery Charger is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Battery Kit So far these batteries work as good as the Dracast batteries I also own. A bonus with the IDX batteries are that they have 2 d-tap ports (1 of which can be used to charge the battery) and also a USB port that can be used to charge/power your portable devices. For that reason I would say that these batteries are superior to the Dracast that I own. The charger, however, will only charge one battery at a time. The Dracast charger I have will charge two simultaneously. For this reason I subtracted one star. Very happy with the products received and the price I paid and would buy again if they are a daily deal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good I had them for a little over a week, and they are great.� They charge pretty quickly, and last a long while with my Emotimo Spectrum motion control.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from works for me I only have a pair of much larger Maxoak 177 Wh V-mount batteries to compare these to. I don't know how this brand compares for more expensive V-mount batteries, but for the special sale price I bought them for, I'm quite happy. Obviously, the IDX 96Wh won't hold power as long as the bulkier Maxoak batteries, but they have the advantage of much less weight and approved for air travel. They have 2 D-Tap power ports (one of which can be used for charging), and a USB power port. Time will tell how well they hold up, but their build quality seems fine. The charger is mostly plastic, and will probably hold up well if I don't drop it. I put off investing in V-mount batteries for longer than I should have. Its an expensive initial investment, but is a more convenient and time saving option on set.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from xlr output limited The XLR output only works when plugged into a wall outlet, it does not access batteries. The XLR output also only works when the batteries are not charging, so its use is very limited. I was pretty disappointed in this aspect. The Watson Pro Two specs are better in this respect.
