I'm building a light weight rig and have been considering Steadyrigs battery hanger. Does anyone have any experience with one?
I belive Mr. Papert has one.

Here in LA I know that Charles Papert, Aiken Weiss and David Baldwin own a unit. And so far after the initial scramble to get all parts together they seem very happy with it. The issue here is that the Battery hanger was conceived to be an upgrade for the "aging" PRO 1 Chocolate bar set up were you keep the lower Junction Box and dump the cage, batteries and chargers and replace them with more contemporary battery adapters like the ones from Anton Bauer, PAG or the Sony V-mount.
The name says it all, it's a battery hanger. So you have to find an old PRO-1 J-box... I heard that maybe a J-box is in the works but have no confirmation. The weight is similar to the PRO-2 but has more versatility in the battery placement...
There was said a lot about the unit in the past...
PS: That is Charles recent set-up. Something new, Something old, Something Borrowed... just like a real marriage... of parts.
