Sorting out new batteries and I'm weighing up between the ugly new Anton Bauer 90's or the slightly more expensive Switronix Hypercores.

Has anyone used the newer ABs on their rigs yet? Wondering about the weight distribution I read someone discussing a while back (and that they were rectifying that?).

Basically, do I save $300 in 4 ABs and charger or spend more on 4 Hypercores and charger...

Words of wisdom, GO!

I bought two of the Ugly 90s because I needed a couple more for a quick job. They hang down lower in the bottom and top.. well they are just bigger all around. They are slightly heavier too, so a battery swap means a slight rebalance. Nothing terrible.


The runtime LCD is nice though. And they are currently really cheap. it's a dilemma.
