    37Wh/2500mAh 14.8V Lithium-ion battery
    For DSMC & DSMC2 camera systems

    Redvolts seem to be twice the 7.4V, so hopefully, there will be some solution for those that want to use as much RED parts as possible:)

    This is cool but unnecessary. We are using Dtap directly to the Power in port in a simple clean cable and it works great. No need for the big battery adapter and the loss of efficiency with a down conversion.

    Yes to hot swap. Works great. And very very nice when you are blowing the camera up to have 2 batteries on there in case one gets pooched in the violence. That's actually happened more than I ever thought it would in the testing over the few months.

    Well, you mentioned the redesign to secure the battery locking mechanism. So I feel pretty safe now :)

    Soon as some form of AF is functional, I'm actually considering getting one for my father who's an earthquake engineer and wants something compact to lug around everywhere he goes around the world to document the damages caused by natural disasters.
    The camera may not need to be explosion-proof, but it will have to keep on rolling even if it is buried by debris.
    Mounting it on a drone to do inspections with a rectilinear lens such as the Laowa 12mm 2.8f and such would also be really cool!

    Isn’t that what Andy is suggesting? Going directly into the power port from Dtap?

    Curious if those older BP-915 batteries power Komodo. Would make for a super slim setup for short runs when needed.

    I guess Jarred meant to quote Ryan since he shared the photo of the d-tap adapter.

    I know its confusing but you want the ones that are 7.4v, not the 14v.

    Look for the BP-955. Thats what we are using here and they are about $140 each. They do make bigger ones ( and smaller ones ) But the BP-955 is a pretty nice size and 2 of them on the back give you about 3 hours of continuous recording.
    Which capacity runs the camera for 1 hour and a half each ?
    The range seems to be 2200-7000mAh.

    Do we need if other brands are as reliable as the Canons ?
    The price range is from 20€ to 250€ here.

    the 4900mah ones from Canon. Testing the other brands but the real Canons are for sure the most consistent so far.
