I recently upgraded few parts on my rig including switching to the new PRO Battery Rack III. I have to say that I am very impressed with the design and quality of the new Battery Rack. It's very sturdy and easy to setup. I had plates built a few years ago that allowed me to switch from AB to V mount on my PRO Battery Rack II but it was not a handy as the new removable battery plates.
Since I keep my battery on the monitor it got me thinking what I could use the third position that was now empty for and came up with this.....

The AB mount without the actual battery plate fits perfectly onto the top of the Hyperdeck

I really hate the mini din co-ax so I put BNC jacks on the front of the Hyperdeck. With the internal battery removed in the Shuttle there is plenty of room in the front. I also put an 8pin lemo matching the PRO wiring so the power from the monitor goes in through the hyperdeck. There is a regulated feed to the Shuttle itself but the full load goes directly to the third power input on the PRO sled which effectively works the same as if the battery were mounted directly.

I had recently installed the Hyperdeck on my Cinetronic but when I purchased the Quattro Monitor bracket the SD card became inconvenient to insert and remove so I was looking for alternatives already and this seemed so perfect!!
