The Sony BP-L80S is an 83.5 WH Li-Ion (Lithium-Ion) rechargeable battery pack. This battery offers energy solution requirements for camcorders, cameras, portable VTRs and other "V-Shoe" mount devices. The "V-Shoe" connector securely locks the battery to any V-shoe equipped device. A 5-step LED capacity indicator is built-in for easy reference of remaining capacity.
Li-Ion batteries can deliver 40% more capacity than comparably sized NiCd batteries and are one of the lightest rechargeable batteries available today. Lithium also offers a small size, long life, low cost, superior cold temperature performance and a shelf life of 5-10 years.
Power Status Display
Five LED lamps located on the operator's side of the camera offer a quick-look reference of available battery capacity.
The BPL-80 offers 83.5 WH of power, which can power the average professional camcorder for more than 180 minutes.
Professional camcorders operate on a 12-volt system. As per their design, a majority of camcorders will activate a low voltage warning or even cease to operate when they determine that the battery has fallen below 11-volts. Most equipment manufacturers suggest that a higher voltage battery should be used whenever possible.
All Sony DVCAM and Betacam SX camcorders include a "V-Mount" battery connection. The V-Mount allows the battery to mount securely to the camcorder, yet it also allows the operator to remove the battery with one hand easily. The V-Mount has become so prevalent, that other battery manufacturers have adopted it.
