    As of now no, but an adapter. HyperCahrgeBatteries have a dual V-Mount. The standard V-Mount and a new Pro V-Mount called BigV. BigV is far more rugged than 3 Stud and provides up to 30amp power draw.

    Typical Cell used in most Cine Batteries

    3400mAh at 1 Charge Cycle
    2300mAh after only 500 Charge Cycles (1100mAh less!)
    Typical Cine Batteries only perform specified capacity during the first few Cycles and then degrade quickly!


    Cell used in HyperChargeBattery™

    2500mAh at 1 Charge Cycle
    2485mAh after 500 Charge Cycles (only 25mAh less!)

    HyperChargeBatteries even OUT PERFORM the competition after only 360 Charging Cycles! And Live up to 7x longer.

    20min charging time for all units or the smallest, 45wh?
    And with empty battery you mean discharged to approx. 20%?

    All units up to 130Wh will charge in 20 min. The smallest needs 20 min as well (we can't put more amp into the cells to charge). The Cells can be discharged nearly to ZERO Volt / Cell - so empty means EMPTY and Full 100% means FULL, no tricks here;-)

    WOW, this figures surpasses LiPo territory. Amazing. How about costs and weight of units? Anything you can share already?

    I'll be posting a chart soon. But the HyperChargeBatteries are bigger and slightly heavier - du to the Cells used. For reference the 45Wh model is 0.5kg (so only 130g more than the small one from RED with nearly same capacity). Guess the USB and D-Tap in the HyperChargeBattery add a little weight;-)

    Is there a reason why the 260wh has this futuristic shape? Maybe it is just me but it looks bulky and ugly. Prefer the classical square look.
    And with such fast charging time of 20min, who really needs 240Wh?

    I like that look, reminds me a lot of the arri 235. So with the BigV mount, there'll be no worries about pushing the battery off when i rest that gap part on my shoulder?

    Does the Hyper Charger charge regular v-mount batteries?

    I read up on the BT rig on Newshooter, but do you have any more info about it? Connector types? Is the top plate a dovetail?
