PAG PL96T overview

  • 1Description

The PAG PL96T is a linking battery that can be used individually or linked with additional units. It's part of the PAGlink system, which allows you to combine the capacities of more than two batteries, in any state of charge, to achieve longer run-times or a higher current-draw capability. Up to eight batteries can be linked for charge or discharge. One unit has a capacity of 96Wh, making it unrestricted, in quantity, for air transportation. Linking two units doubles the capacity to 192Wh. Three units provide 288Wh.

Hard-wearing, heavy-duty contacts are incorporated for high-current applications. The rated maximum continuous output is 12A when linked (8A individually). Linked batteries form a high-speed network that enables them to communicate with each other, managing the output safely, and preventing the transfer of charge between them, and they can be linked while in any state of charge. PAGlink also allows batteries to be hot-swapped for constant, uninterrupted power.

PAGlink batteries feature a higher energy density, long-life, premier-quality Li-ion cells, which have no memory effect, and are completely recyclable. They are designed and constructed to provide the longest possible working life. The battery case is manufactured from high-impact, injection-molded polycarbonate which is inherently very strong and also used for motorcycle helmets. The internal case design also protects the cell-pack against damaging impact.

The PL96T incorporates a numeric run-time and capacity display. Remaining run-time is shown, on-load, expressed in hours and minutes, to a resolution of 1 minute. Remaining capacity is shown as a percentage (1% increments). The display maintains its accuracy by tracking the performance, and adjusting calibration values to compensate for the aging of the cells, and does not require a periodic 'service' charge. The PL96T can be linked to a PL96e battery to provide a numeric display of remaining run-time for all linked batteries.

The PL96T supports four different camera data systems that display capacity in the viewfinder: Sony, IDX, RED, and Anton-Bauer. The battery recognizes the system's data protocol and adapts automatically when connected. The battery can be configured easily for compatibility with the RED Epic/Scarlet camera data system by the user.

The battery stores data in its microprocessor, data such as number of cycles and software version, which can be revealed using the PAGlink Battery Reader (model 9647). This information is designed to assist with the management of a large battery inventory. The PL96T is also firmware-upgradeable. The program can be updated in the field by the user, in a matter of seconds, without opening the battery case. A software update can be supplied by PAG or your dealer. Updates enable you to benefit from the technological advances that PAG introduces to accommodate developments in camera technology.

When using a PAGlink charger, batteries in any state of charge can be charged while linked. The 2-position PL16 charger (model 9707) will simultaneously charge up to 16 PAGlink batteries (8 on each position). Alternatively, PAGlink batteries can be charged individually or linked, using any reputable V-Mount Li-Ion charger, but in this case the batteries must be in a similar state of charge (within 40%) in order to be fully charged when linked. Status during charging is indicated on each battery's individual display. When using the PL16 charger, the numeric display of the PL96T can be inverted, for legibility, with a single button press, and it reverts automatically after removal from the charger.

The battery's advanced electronic protection system is fail-safe and features Parylene coated circuits to protect against electrolyte. Low temperature performance allows PAGlink batteries to operate at -4°F (-20°C). The PL96T has been independently tested in accordance with UN standards and certified to comply with air transport safety regulations. Its capacity is below 100Wh, so it is suitable for air transport on passenger aircraft, in hand-luggage, without quantity restriction (Section of the IATA Lithium-Ion Battery GuidanceDocument (2014)). Before travelling with this product, please check for current compliance with updated, applicable air transport regulations.

    PAG PL96T reviews

    PL96T Time Battery V-Mount (14.8V, 96Wh) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from PAG Batteries I've been using PAG batteries almost since they came out. They are the best batteries I've used in my 40 years and more as a Marine Wildlife cinematographer, and I've use many over the years. They give me a minimum of one hour plus top side use and as much or more in my Nuaticam underwater housing. The stacking ability is a real plus. They are also a lot less hassle in traveling as they are airline approved. The compact package they come in is a real plus, because they are lighter, smaller and easy to travel with.
