This B&H Kit features four high-draw Watson Pro 14.4V 98Wh Slim High-Load Li-Ion Batteries, in a V-mount, and a portable Simultaneous Dual Position Charger. The lightweight ergonomic batteries support up to a 12A draw for powering up to the most power-hungry cameras, and their slim design makes them a good option for use on gimbals and drones. For accessories and mobile devices, they offer D-Tap and USB outputs. The charger provides simultaneous charging for batteries with up to 6.6Ah and sequential charging for batteries with higher amp-hour ratings. The charger also offers a 4-pin XLR DC power output and includes an XLR cable.
Watson Pro Dual Position Li-Ion Battery Charger (V-Mount)
This Watson Pro Dual Position Li-Ion Charger supports two V-mount batteries and offers a 4-pin XLR power output, providing dual-purpose functionality in a portable, handy design. It's capable of simultaneous charging, and the XLR port offers useful versatility. An ergonomic carry handle, flip-out kickstand, rubberized feet, On/Off switch, and LED status indicators complete the design and allow for comfortable and efficient operation.
This charger is able to charge two batteries with up to 6.6Ah capacities simultaneously, delivering 2.5A to each battery. For batteries with capacities of 8.8Ah or more, it provides sequential charging at 5A, first charging one to 85%, and then switching to fully charge both.
The 4-pin XLR power output can be used to power select cameras from an AC outlet or off of connected batteries. A special feature of this charger is that when it's connected to a power outlet, it is capable of charging the batteries and providing power through the XLR output at the same time, as opposed to one or the other as is more common.
Additionally, an XLR cable is included, giving you everything you need to make full use of this charger. The charger supports 100-240 VAC power input, so it can be used worldwide with the right plug adapters (sold separately).

Watson Pro 14.4V 98Wh Slim High-Load Li-Ion Battery with USB (V-Mount)
The Watson Pro Pro 14.4V 98Wh Slim High-Load Li-Ion Battery, in a V-mount, packs many in-demand features into one small package. The battery provides up to a 12A draw, enough for many of the most power-hungry cameras and lights. This high current is offered in a slim form factor that's suitable for gimbal, stabilizer, and drone applications. The battery has both D-Tap and USB outputs for powering accessories and charging mobile devices simultaneously with your main load, and this V-mount version features SMBus communication for supporting cameras.
The 98Wh capacity provides approximately 2.5 hours of runtime for a load of 35W. A 5-LED gauge on the side indicates remaining battery life at the press of a button below the LEDs. When capacity drops under 9%, the bottom LED automatically begins blinking as a warning.
For safety, built-in intelligent circuitry shuts down the battery in case of high current, low voltage, extreme temperatures, or possible short circuits. In this way, both the battery and your gear are protected.
Ergonomic grips on the sides of the battery allow for more comfortable handling while also enhancing the look and feel of the battery. The ergonomics blend well with the slim design of the VM-98-SHL.
The VM-98-SHL is rechargeable using any Watson Pro V-mount charger.
