Could this battery power the amaran COB 60x S Bi-Color light, and for how long?
Asked by: Jason
Yes, the SmallRig VB50 Mini V-Mount Battery (50Wh) can power amaran COB 60x S Bi-Color light, however theoretical estimate of the battery life is only about half an hour using it at full power. The battery is 50Wh and the maximum power draw of the light is 78W which would be (50Wh/78W)*0.8=0.51 please keep in mind this is a theory only, the battery may draw faster in cold conditions or last longer if the light is used at lower power. We do recommend to look into higher capacity batteries like SmallRig VB99 Mini V-Mount Battery (99Wh) https://bhpho.to/3tBiJGX and you will need a power cable Kondor Blue Coiled D-Tap to Locking DC 2.5mm Right-Angle Cable for amaran (16 to 32") https://bhpho.to/4ctc0DE.
