Hello I know everyone writes different things about batts and I have gone through them... but I have specific questions.


I have just purchased the new PRO sled with the new battery rack and pro say on their site they sell/recommend the Dionic 90's.

However, reading on here Im wondering if I should get the Dionic HC's.

I use different cameras and my sled I currently own (master film) I use the 90's and its great but they do go quickly.

Also Ashley put me onto a lovely chap in the USA called Terry west and he's been talking to me about Diodes on the new racks and I wondered if other people are having them fitted? I understand what they do (I think) but I just wanted to seek some advice.

many thanks

Danny

Dionic HC batteries for sure! Not sure if you need the diodes.

yes, you will need DIODES, if you want to use a Y-cable (Genesis) or the 12V parallel BLOCK to prevent cross-charging. You can just buy a second set of battery plates for the rear positions and get them outfittet by Terry West...not sure about the cost of the plates....

Alec had the great idea of installing the diodes into his jumper block...I think Cramped Attic did the work. Terry put them in my sled a year ago and I no longer see the flashing screen or black bar anymore on my hc's.
