Hawk Woods VL-M98 Mini V-Lok Li-Ion Battery

The Hawk-Woods 98Wh mini V-lok battery offers the same capacity as a full size Anton Bauer Dionic 90 battery in a really small case - in fact, it is roughly half of the size and will fit into the palm of your hand. 

Features

  • 98Wh 
  • Maximum 8A (115W) power draw but this is doubled to 16 (230W) if used in conjunction with another battery and hot-swap plate.
  • LED Voltage Indicator
  • Really small size but battery mount is a full size V-Lok, so it is s compatible with all full size V-Lok battery plates
  • Battery mount is convertable to goldmount with supplied hot swap back.
  • Built-in D-tap socket too.
  • The capacity is within the 100Wh bracket, so battery is classed as 'flight safe' for carry-on luggage, though volumes are subject to the airline.

Hawk Woods AB-MCF1L hot swap battery plate included as standard

Since VMI is predominantly an Anton Bauer rental house, we include a dual V-Lok battery plate which mounts to an Anton bauer goldmount as standard.

Battery status LEDs are present on the hot-swap plate as well as 2 x further D-Tap outputs.

This means that you can mount 1 or 2 x Mini V-Lok batteries and enjoy twice the capacity and also twice the current draw of a single battery and the intelligent circuitry also means that you can change batteries 'hot swap' style without powering down the camera and a flashing LED will advise when a specific battery will soon need to be changed.  Very smart.

Hawk Woods Chargers

VMI provide both 2 x dual chargers in a kit of 5 x batteries - this means that you can charge 2 x batteries concurrently and always have a spare charger in the event of failure.

VMI Mini V-Lok Power Kits

The VMI Mini V-Lok power kits are offered as a no-cost alternative to conventional Anton Bauer goldmount batteries or rentable separately.

The VMI V-Lok power kits include:

  • 5 x Hawk Woods VL-M98 98WH Mini V-Lok Li Ion batteries
  • 2 x Hawkwoods VL-MX2 Dual chargers
  • Hawk-Woods AB-MCF1L dual V-Lok to goldmount camera plate
