V LOCK/SWIT Batteries
Posted 22 September 2010 - 05:59 PM
I am about to change rigs from a Master Series powered by Ni-Cad batteries to an Ultimate II with V lock mounts. I am considering SWIT Lithium Ion batteries....???
Will these batteries work for me ? ie enough power 12, 24 etc. All cameras ???

Am using 190wh Swit HC batteries and its serving me great on
both 12V and 24V cameras. Its great for the price.

BUT I think that they are not good for the high current cameras thrown at use today. I used two 130Wh with a F35 + recorder, focus/iris, down converter, Canatrans and TB-6 on my Ultimate 1. They could have lasted for an hour but we had to swap them after 45 min continues use because the batts where getting to hot (50°C). The high current will reduce the batteries lifetime drastically.
You're better served with batteries that can handle a 10A continues draw.
I went for the AntonBauer Dionics HC.
Joel, I couldn't find any "HC" batteries on the Swit website, Does it stand for High Capacity or High Current.
