    Thought I'd save someone some trouble.
    Bought these based on a Reduser recommendation in another thread. These "Comer" Batteries bounce around in my CORE v-mount plates like a latte in a dirt bike cupholder. Their solution, that I replace my high quality plates with their shittier ones, is troubling. Hopefully they will honor their warranty, I'll update when and if they do. https://www.dandolighting.com/products/sony-v-mount-190wh-battery

    Hello, The 190 watt Comer batteries arrived last Tuesday 05-07-19. I did not have a chance to try them till last night. Unfortunately, the V-mounts on these batteries do not fit securely on v-mount receiving plates for either of my cameras. The Comer batteries never lock, and instead slide upwards at the touch of a finger, resulting in catastrophic power interruption to the cameras. I have both IDX and Swit batteries that fit and lock securely on both these cameras. Im sorry but I must return these. Please provide shipping instructions and label.

    Respectfully,

    I did complete the warranty form last week, Colin. No response yet. Anything else you need form me?

    Replacement? Are you saying you have batteries that will fit and lock in my v-lock plates, Colin? Because the problem is that neither of these do.

    Pity you didn't suggest that on your website on April 25th when I bought these, I would have known not to purchase the batteries. I think we both realize your suggestion is absurd. My battery plates are made by CORE and manufactured to professional tolerances. I received your batteries on May 7th, almost two weeks after ordering. I completed your warranty return request in detail, including pictures of the original boxes with serial numbers on May 20th.
    Please refund this purchase and send a return label, as you said you would, on your email of May 18th. I've already been a month without equipment I need because of this.
