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.
This version of the power kit includes a dual V-Lok battery plate to V-Lok plate 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.
We like to make things easy for our clients, since we know that being prevented from taking your power on the plane with you by a customs or airport official not familiar with all of the IATA rules is likely to have a devastating effect on your production.
Since the revised guidelines are now clear and well understood, Hawkwoods has taken to printing the words “Flight-Safe” onto their 98WH Mini V-Lok batteries and also including a printed QR code, so that customs officials are able to scan the code and confirm that these batteries are safe to be taken as carry-on with you in an unlimited number.
We have taken this a stage further and included laminated cards shown here to accompany our flight-safe Mini V-Lok battery kits, so that you can provide evidence to authorities that these batteries qualify to be carried-on and the QR code points to a specific website to add credibility.
As per the caveat above, individual airlines may still interpret IATA rules differently and impose their own standards and limits on passengers, so you are strongly advised to check their policy on Lithium-ion transportation ahead of travelling, though our hope is that our laminated cards may help you if you face an empasse with an official trying to play it safe!
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.
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:
