Tiny power packs with a lot of smart and unique bebob features, the new ultra-compact 200 Wh battery packs are available in V-Mount and Gold Mount compatible versions.
A powerful extension for the bebob micro Series, the new V-Mount and Gold Mount compatible versions now announced by the company are true tiny power packs. Available as V-Mount (V200micro) and Gold Mount compatible (A200micro) versions, both battery packs feature 196 Wh and 14,4 V (16,0 A maximum discharge current) — combined with the lowest footprint in its class.
The bebob V200micro and A200micro Lithium-ion packs only measure, says bebob, “75 x 101 x 81mm – that’s about two thirds of traditional 200 Wh batteries. But even better: The new ‘micro monsters’ are equipped with a lot of smart and unique bebob features, making the work-life on-set smoother and easier: an integrated LED flashlight can be activated at the touch of a button to light up dark settings. The rainproof “Twist D-Tap” output allows to plug a D-Tap connector into the battery with free choice of cable trailing from the left or right. To power accessories, atop each Vmicro and Amicro is a USB port (5,0 V; max.1,0 A) with a sliding cover to keep the elements out.”
The Munich-based company shared more information about the new products. For example, “on the side of each battery there is a five-step, colorful LED power remaining indicator (100% – 80% – 60% – 40% – 20%) that monitors battery life. They also conveniently support through-the-finder power data protocol from ARRI, RED and Sony cameras.”
Unique bebob features
The series of smart features many associate with the company’s name continues: below the power gauge is a push-button to wake-up the battery, check the power status or to activate the built-in LED flashlight. Engineered and handcrafted in Germany to the highest specifications, all bebob batteries feature rugged composite housings. Clever detail: Their housings are stackable to enable hassle-free transport on-set.
Another unique bebob feature: The cells of all bebob batteries can be exchanged and re-celled, once their capacity becomes insufficient after years of use. Together with premium built-quality and highest security standards, this underlines bebob’s approach to manufacture extremely durable accessories that will last for years.
To recharge, bebob offers its own range of micro chargers, including 1-, 2-, 4- and 8-channel simultaneous Chargers, as well as numerous Battery Plates, Power Bars and Adapters for maximum versatility. Optional Hot Swap Adapters provide uninterrupted power through battery changes.
