I read an article in the latest "Popular Science" that talked about a new battery technology that promises increased energy density, longer lifespan and faster charge (80% charge in 5 minutes) than Li-Ion. It is already available in DeWalt power tools.

Worth looking into.

Jim,

That's really interesting news. The article also claims a 70 amp continuous discharge current so the cells might even have a chance at running a full-on Genesis!

Jim

are you going into the battery business. I'll take some in an Anton Bauer configuration please. Maybe a few chargers as well.

Sorry, Bill, not in this lifetime. I just wanted everyone to know about this to keep an eye on it. Depending on how they are priced, they could make regular Li-Ion obsolete pretty quickly. I'd hate to see someone dump a truckload of $$$ into batteries that are obsolete overnight.

I've always felt bad for someone who saw the prototype BFD and sadly stated 'And I just paid $6,00 for a Seitz".

To hell with Steadicam, sounds good for next-gen plug in hybrids!

That is indeed the application everyone is looking at. Particularly attractive is the 5 minute recharge (almost as fast as filling your gas tank).

I saw the Tesla electric sports car at the Beverly Hills car show a few weeks back. I mentioned this to the company rep and he pointed out that the battery pack is a removable module so if a new battery technology comes along they can retrofit it when the original pack wears out.

Browsing internet I came across the new 28 volt batteries/chargers with this technique from Dewalt and also Milwaukee. This looks promising: one battery that can supply my 435 and (with downconverter/regulator) also my 12 volt cameras....

And the price.... seems a good deal compared to Dionic 90's , on Ebay about $140 for 2, charger @ $30

Anybody tried this already? I guess, if it can power heavy duty power tools, a 435 on 150 fps should be possible too!

I would love to hear more about this.
Not that I can buy it now in Thailand...... transport restrictions...... :angry:
