    I have a few questions regarding RED's Pro Battery Module. The first is, does anyone have a photo of the Quad Module? I just saw one recently, but I can't seem to find it anymore.

    - When the Quad Battery Module is released in January, will it be available for purchase by itself? (Not as part of an EPIC package?) And, will it still be priced at $1,950?

    - Does anyone who may have used it before know how long four REDVOLTs in the Quad Battery Module will last on an EPIC or Scarlet?

    - Will the Dual Battery Module ever be released, or has it been abandoned? And if it will be released, will it still cost $1,450?

    Also, does anyone have a price for the Quad Charger and Module Adaptor?

    Here is a video I made a while back.. vimeo.com/30612539
    Hope it helps you. I don't know the price but you can find it on the forms some where. The battery life was good and it jumps to the next one when its done. Then would go to the handle if it was on the camera.. With 8 or so redvolts you can just keep going.

    Sean, that video you made is absolutely brilliant. Until now, I've only seen renderings and a few small photos of it, but that video is amazing! I really have a better idea now of how it works, how it attaches to the camera and how large it is. Thank you very, very much for having made that. =)

    How long do four REDVOLTs typically last you?

    Would there be any advantages to using a quad battery module over a few v-mount batteries? I feel as if you are heavily invested in the redvolts it would be great, but what would be the reason to get that over a vmount system?

    Another question: Why do the REDVOLTs have a button on them?

    To me, the system looks cleaner. I don't have any V-mount batteries, so I'm trying to decide which route to go. One disadvantage of the REDVOLT system, however, is the lack of D-Tap connectors.

    When pushed, it lights up above to reveal how much juice remains in the battery. Much like how man of Sony's cameras have this function.
