The new and albeit odd looking G-Series batteries from Anton Bauer were discussed in a couple of threads when first shown at NAB, but I have seen nothing since nor have I ever seen one in person. Design atheistic aside, has anyone used them? Specially on a PRO 3 base (or other sled but please specify)? Can you comment to fit, weight distribution and can you fit four of them on an older style AB charger or are they too big?
I currently use Dionic HCs and a few are getting long in the tooth. Trying to asses options (and I don't want to hear about V-lock options since I hate V-locks… nor do I want to hear about Chinese clones right now; I'm specifically asking about the G90 batteries). I'be used Anon Bauer batteries for twenty years on every sled I've owned, but this one is a puzzle piece. I don't mind a little more weight and size (will a PRO 3 recorder mount still work?) if the performance is better but the sled needs to spin flat, etc.
I believe Anton Bauer still sells HCs so I'm likely going to just add a few more of these rather than change but I am curious. Paul Dudeck, if you're reading this, you've always done right by me, but if the G series are not a good fit and HCs are discontinued, you'll force me to re-cell the HCs or go in another direction all together.
