I'm talking about the new picture of the battery module that comes with the Epic X upgrade. It looks like it holds three 12 volt batteries. Are any included with the upgrade?

Hasn't been stated anywhere, but my guess'd be: Nope...

What'd be great to know (I'm impatient, I know that already) is how many watt hours they're packing in those smaller batteries and how many watts the Epic X/FF35 will draw with bomb EVF, I/O Module, and LCD.

I'm imagining that the batteries will drain sequentially and that you'll be able to pull one out once it's done and load up another without even rebooting.

This is a fantastic way to do things. Although, with a 2 second boot up time, it's way less of an issue. I'll miss some of the "initializing" jokes on set though.

Another question is whether the battery module (or any other modules such as the IO unit) will have a 4pin XLR INPUT to allow existing 12V sources to power the unit.

Also, perhaps we could have a 4pin XLR OUTPUT jack to run power from the module to other standard accessories.
