Power your Canon EOS C300 or C500 camera as well as additional production gear using this Anton Bauer Dionic XT90 and Digital 150 Battery Kit put together by B&H. The kit includes two 99Wh Dionic XT90 Gold mount lithium-ion batteries, one 156Wh Digital 150 Gold mount lithium-ion battery, and a Gold mount battery plate that connects to a Canon EOS C300 or C500 camera.
The Dionic XT90 batteries feature a 12A continuous draw, an LCD capacity gauge, and both D-Tap and USB accessory ports. The Digital 150 battery features 1000 charge/discharge cycles, a 10A continuous draw, digital calibration, 14.4V output, and one D-Tap accessory output. The Gold mount battery plate connects to the C300 or C500 camera with DC barrel power cable and features three D-Tap accessory outputs.
Anton Bauer Dionic XT90 Gold Mount Battery
Use the Anton Bauer Dionic XT90 Gold Mount Battery to power your Gold mount camera or other pro video gear. The lightweight lithium-ion chemistry can provide up to 12 amps of current on a continuous draw and support peaks of up to 20 amps for two seconds. At the side of the chassis, a backlit LCD has battery capacity information so you know when you'll have to swap out one battery for a fresh one. Using the P-Tap and USB ports, you can power essential accessories on your rig or other small electronics.
Anton Bauer Digital 150 Gold Mount Battery (14.4V, 156 Wh)
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.

Anton Bauer QRC-CA940 Gold Mount Battery Plate for Canon C300 and C500
The Anton Bauer QRC-CA940 Gold Mount Battery Plate powers the canon EOS C300 or C500 via a DC connector. It also features three P-Tap outputs for powering monitors, recorders, and other accessories. All four outputs can work at the same time, thus simplifying on-set battery management and reducing downtime when changing batteries.
The plate mounts rigs by an optional Anton Bauer Matrix cheese plate, or you can put it in a pouch and hang the pouch around your tripod.
