Anton/Bauer L-series batteries.
At IBC, Anton/Bauer will show its new L-Series 7.2V batteries and chargers that offer long, reliable run-times for professional video cameras and accessories.
Anton/Bauer’s new fast-charging L-Series batteries provide a durable solution for Sony Handycam camcorders and accessories. They also power 7.2V field monitors – such as the SmallHD DP7-Pro – and on-camera lighting products from Litepanels and Manfrotto.
The 7.2V L-Series batteries introduce the Anton/Bauer name to a new group of videographers, photographers and media professionals. “Since these batteries are so versatile, nearly every device on set can now be powered by Anton/Bauer,” said Neal Laneville, product manager for Anton/Bauer.
The L-Series batteries accompany the two new 7.2V chargers. The Single Position Charger boasts a lightweight, compact design with an LED indicator light. The charger also includes a charge control switch that allows users to switch between ECO and FULL charging speeds (for slow or fast charging) as well as a 5V USB output port for powering an extra device simultaneously.
The L-Series Dual Position Charger simultaneously charges two batteries at once and has an LCD that shows each battery’s charge percentage. The charger also possesses battery testing functionalities to optimize battery life.
The Anton/Bauer L-Series batteries are available in two capacities: the NP-F774 is a 4400mAh (30Wh) and the NP-F976 is a 6600mAh (47Wh).
The Anton/Bauer 7.2V batteries and chargers will be available worldwide in October 2015 and on display for the first time at IBC.
