I saw a DIY of this using a cigaret lighter car USB plug. You can also power anything with a car plug.

The Paralinx P-tap cable also works (and is sold separately from the Arrow).

I use a 4 pin xlr to a cig lighter/usb plug in to charge off the batteries on the dolly when I shoot. Works great!

I kind of want a plate on the back of my phone case now. Snap a dionic 160 on it and I'll be making slightly cumbersome phone calls for up to 15 hours*
Shouldn't be that hard to make with a car charger cable. If you're going to make one, just be really careful not to fry your phone and test it with a fresh off the charger battery. If it would blow at any point, it would be then.


*with brightness at 50% in well covered areas.

Afton used to make iPhone to d-tap! Not sure if he does them any more or not!

Been meaning to get one for ages!

Erwin, that looks remarkably like the ones I used to make.  I still have and use one, and it still works great.  There seems to be a lot more elegant solutions out there now, so I probably won't make any more.

The only issue with the Viewfactor plug is it's a micro USB, so you'd need an adapter between the regular iPhone cable and the plug itself.

This might be interesting:


A sandwich v-mount plate with 4 interchangeable USB or D-tap output modules that goes between the sled and the battery.

Thanks for the heads up on that little beauty of a product Evrim - that is exactly what I want.  I just decided to invest in the PAG linking V-mounts and this piece fits what I need exactly.
