Bebob Introduces Vmicro (V-Mount) and Amicro (Gold-Mount) Compact 14.4 Volt Battery Packs
Bebob said both mount styles feature a choice of 43, 98 and 147-watt hour version batteries — each with the lowest weight and footprint in its class.
Bebob, based in Munich, Germany, said the V45micro and A45micro (43Wh) Lithium-ion packs are the smallest in the field and weigh 11.6 ounces each. The V98 and A98micros weigh 19.4 ounces, while the larger output V150 and A150micros weigh 27.1 ounces.
Bebob will also unveil new Micro chargers with smaller size and greater versatility to complement the rest of the line.
Ideal for camera, lighting and other on-set power guzzlers, Vmicro and Amicro batteries offer a range of features. On the side of each battery is a five-step LED power remaining indicator (100% – 80% – 60% – 40% – 20%) that monitors battery life.
The batteries also support through-the-finder power data protocol for major brands of cameras. Below the power gauge is a push-button to wake-up the battery, check power status or to activate the built-in LED light. This can help users see when connecting the battery to the battery plate, even on darkened sets.
To power accessories, atop each Vmicro and Amicro is a USB port with a sliding cover to keep the elements out. Adjacent is a Twist D-Tap output that allows the user to plug in the cable, in either direction they choose.
The maximum discharge current of each battery is 10 amps. To recharge, Bebob offers its own range of solutions including two and four-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.
The three-inch height and four-inch width of all Micro batteries are identical. Only the depth varies according to output, with 1.25-inches depth on the 43Wh packs, 1.88-inches for the 98Wh versions and 2.5-inches for the 147Wh capacity.
