Indipro Tools Showcases Portable-Pak Power at Cine Gear 2019

Indipro Tools is showing its new Porta-Pak battery, which enables DSLR and pro-video users to power up their camera and accessories using one compact power source. 

Indipro said it will show two new RED-compatible Micro-Series lithium ion batteries as well as a new NITRO SDI splitter and power distribution box.

Indipro will also introduce the latest accessory items for this small-footprint (3 x 5 x1.5 inches) power solution. Included among these is the new Porta-Pak battery kit for the Blackmagic Design 4K Pocket Camera (BMPCC4K), which includes both the Porta-Pak battery, charger, 2.1-mm LP-E6-type battery power cable and travel case, as well as the company’s new battery mounting enclosure.

This lightweight, external adapter enclosure is made of lightweight aluminum and allows the Porta-Pak to be inserted and locked or swapped into a variety of mounting configurations without having to remove the enclosure. The included small, lightweight charger supports 90-240 VAC worldwide input voltage and provides a quick 2A current charge via a 2.5-mm DC plug on one end and a U.S. wall plug on the other.

Also new to Cine Gear are two Micro-Series batteries, a 98Wh and 150Wh model, both V-Mount Li-Ion RED-compatible batteries. Containing one of the industry’s top battery cells, the Micro-Series RED batteries can communicate detailed battery information to RED DSMC and DSMC2 cameras, which is then displayed in the viewfinder.

The 98Wh battery has an output of 14.8V, with a capacity of 6.6Ah and supports up to a 12A draw. The 150Wh battery outputs 14.8V, with a capacity of 9.4Ah and supports up to 12A draw. The new batteries also feature a standard D-Tap port for powering accessories, as well as a built-in USB interface that provides the ability to charge devices during a shoot.

Indipro’s NITRO SDI splitter and power distribution box features a single input and dual outputs, capable of splitting one SDI signal into two identical outputs, which can be displayed on two devices, simultaneously.
