Hi,
I need to make my Pro rig hot swap-able today. Any of you who knows if it is possible to connect two of the battery mounts on the rig in parallel with a male-to-male D-tap cable and in this way do the hot swap?
Best regards
Jacob

If you use one of the jumper blocks that has a blank space, the blank space operates as hot swap for the camera position.

You can wire Two 12V batteries positions in parallel using the Jumper Block for both longer run times and Hot swap - but you need to have Diodes present on each line to prevent the batteries from cross charging each other.
