Possible New Anton/Bauer High-Current Li Ion Battery?
Posted 13 January 2007 - 05:11 PM
I just heard this week that A/B should be coming out with a new high-current lithium-ion battery pack very soon.
I will post more information as soon as I can.
For me, this would be a great upgrade for my sled since I run with two (2) battery positions and would love to have two Li ion batteries and still be able to run a 435 or even a PFX Genesis.

Who did you speak with at Anton Bauer? I asked Anton Bauer this very question prior to buying a new round of Dionic 90's a couple weeks ago. They told me that there was no PowerCube competitor on the horizon, and the Dionic 160's (along with their shipping nuances) were the only option.
Do you have more specifics.

I can't say exactly where this information comes from but I can say that this potential new item would be something just for the Steadicam community, not a general sales item.
I got the feeling that this was something on a "fast track" [my ""] and something we could potentially see very soon, like in several months.
Like Mark, I am faced with a new battery buy soon to handle both kinds of cameras. I have been looking at all options and have not as yet found a plan that I like.
When these new A/B items hit the street, I want them.
Most folks have a battery preference for their own personal reasons. I for one am not pleased with the potential need to change out mounts in addition to purchasing new batteries.
Big current draw and high voltage startup demands are tops on the list for all of us but we are all wise to the need to standardize and simplify our technical systems so we may concentrate on creative challenges.
Whenever I get my hands on more information, I will pass it along.
My big question to the community, who wants 'em?

I just rebuilt my base and stuck with AB's rather than switching to V-mount in anticipation of a competing product, so I'd be be very interested.

I'm also jealous of your snow, Brant. We haven't seen any here in NY this season.
