Hello all!

Im deciding between two types of batteries for my first pro rig, between Core's batteries ( https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1135054-REG/switronix_gold_mount_4x_hypercore.html ) and BCB (https://broadcastcamerabatteries.com/shop/monster-kit/?mount=v-mount).

I've used Core before and love them, last long, convenient and easy to see what the battery life is at, usb plus ptap in them, but I wanted to hear from other operators who own Core or BCB batteries and what they think of them (particularly BCB).

I can afford the difference but I'm wondering is the price difference between Core and BCB worth it?

Thank you,

Joseph H.

Joseph,

 

I've been using BCB V-mount batteries exclusively for 5 years. I've got 8 of them in all power capacities. They're great and I've never had a problem with them, and they even have versions for the RED cameras that report battery condition on the monitor. I recommend the higher watt-hour models for their higher discharge capacity and extra weight on the rig to help balance bigger camera builds.

 

Regards,

Scott
