Hi Richard,

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

Cheers!
Joel

The Swit batteries are very good for there price tag. I had one set of 130Wh's and 80Wh's for 6 Years and they severed me well. In the end they couldn't handle anything drawing more power than a SR3 but after 6 years I don't complain.
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.
