  1. #1 V-mount Battery Chart 
    For those of you looking for what v-mount batteries might be a good fit for your new Raven or Scarlet-W with the Red v-mount expander, here's a chart of what will fit and what won't along with pricing and size/weight information. To the right are some of my own calculations for the high-altitude work I do, where every ounce and cubic centimetre matters.

    Here's a link to the Google spreadsheet if you want to copy / edit / suggest changes.

    "Too heavy" is my personal rating—none of these batteries exceed the V-mount spec AFAIK. I'm looking for maximum density & mass efficiency per watt-hour (and per dollar, though that's less important) because I have to schlep these batteries on my back up mountains. Every ounce counts.

    No Dynacore? If it ain't on B&H, it doesn't exist...?

    Feel free to add them Blair. I think I might've skipped adding them because aren't they the same size as the GlobeMediaPro batteries? (which don't fit the Red v-mount expander)

    I really feel PAG link batteries are the stand out batteries at the min... and think they fit?

    Linking is fantastic

    Weight to capcity is best in class

    The micro chargers are really really useful

    Stackable charging is amazing

    the company is a delight to deal with

    I am slightly prejudiced as they are a Uk company..

    I'm using the 150Wh ones. For travel I'm using REDVOLT XLs. Though the new slim REDVOLT-V thing has grabbed my interest.
