Awesome alternative to distro

Super handy alternative to a gold mount or v mount d tap. Good battery life and reasonably priced.

Great battery, at first

I purchase this battery for my C70, as opposed to going gold mount, for both weight related and price related reasons. I wanted the increased battery life, and the D-Tap to use my external monitor. It's worked well for a few months now, but just today suddenly doesn't work. The battery shows a full charge but as soon as I plug my D-Tap in the battery turns off. I put it on the charger which shortly after shows a full charge but does it again. I can risk using these as my primary batteries if this is the kind of performance I get, I'll be reaching out to the company to find resolution but I'm probably going gold mount and you might want to consider this.

Great Product

Works perfectly with the Canon C70 and lasts a long time. This is a great option if you want one battery for your camera and monitor.

Great battery for the C70, one drawback

By Lowcountry Community

I was debating between this or a gold mount setup, with this winning out based on overall cost and more compact setup when needed. I required D-Tap for my portkeys monitor, and most of the gold mounts we use are made by core, so we've really enjoyed their batteries. It fits just fine on the stock charger, maybe a tad loose, but charges perfectly. However, I removed one star because the battery doesn't seat perfectly on the camera, and causes a constant squeak anytime the camera moves a bit (I noticed it often on an easy rig). It has no issues from a performance standpoint, just a minor issue that makes it sound cheap. I've resorted to placing a small strip of cardboard underneath the Batt when it's on camera, and the sound is no more. I don't feel like doing an RMA for something that most likely won't even change. I'd still get it, but it's worth noting.

Amazing battery

This is an incredible battery for the Canon C70. I love the posibility to use also plugged the SWIT 7' monitor trough D-Tap. A little bit expensive, but i have 3 of them.

Love, this is my second

And I'll probably buy more. Lasts a long time and much cheaper than the OEM while offering the bonus d-tap and usb.

Great for C70 and Monitor

By Jeff

This battery has performed quite well in field use powering the C70 and an Atomos Ninja 5 for monitoring. The battery fits and charges with the C70 charger. The D-Tap port fits the conversion cable to barrel connector for the monitor. I have seen reviews that state the opposite-- perhaps they have revised the design by the time I purchased as I see no problems like this whatsoever. So far this battery has not only performed well, but serves a more utilitarian purpose of consolidating power needs into one place.

Perfect for Canon C70

I use these for my Canon C70. They allow me to run my C70, Portkeys Monitor, and even my Tentacle from the USB when I forget to charge it. More versatile that the Canon-branded batteries and has a smaller form factor than using V-Mounts.

Does the c200 charger work with this battery? It seems like yes, but the reviews seem to say no...
Asked by: Noah
Short answer: yes it works fine. Long answer: it doesn't fully lock in so it will occasionally lose contact and stop charging. I put some tape down on the bottom of the charger to make it a tighter fit and it has worked flawlessly ever since. It just takes a little more effort to get the battery into place.

Will a Canon C300 battery charger charge this battery?
Asked by: Bart
You can charge the battery via compatible OEM Canon chargers. However this battery is for the C300 Mark II, not the original C300. If you have a C300 Mark II you can use the same charger, but it will not charge on systems for the C300 as that uses a different battery type.

The Atomos DC to D-Tap connector for the Ninja V does not fit the Smartap - does anybody have a good alternative?
Asked by: Michael
The Core SWX NANO-C98 14.8V Battery with D-Tap for Select Canon Camcorders (B&H# CONANOC98) features a one-way female D-Tap port for power. It is designed to make it difficult to reverse the connection because that would reverse the polarity of the (DC) electricity and possibly damage your equipment. Please be sure you are connecting it appropriately. Having said that, the Watson Pro D-Tap to 2.1mm Barrel Cable (19") (B&H# WACADTAP21M) will connect a D-tap power source such as the Core SWX NANO-C98 to a 5.5mm wide barrel port with a 2.1mm pin which is what many Atomos products use.

Asked by: damon
Yes, I have powered Teradek transmitters and even a Tilta follow focus at the same time using a D-tap splitter. Note: it obviously drains the battery faster when you have other things plugged into it.
