    Hiya,
    I have a bit unusual questions...
    I need something small that uses V-Mount batteries. It could be anything really: Led Panel, display etc.
    The reason is that when you freight equipment you are allowed to have 1 battery inside and 2 spares. This means you can actually freight 3 batteries with the rules UN3481 instead of dangerous goods.

    This is how they handle most tools like drills etc.
    I just did a shipment with Gimbal, Drone and another case with Teradek Cine 7. This meant I could ship in total 9 batteries. Only problem is I ran out of things to attach Vmount too. I have some large LED pannels that I guess would work but they are 4kg each.

    Ideas?

    This is hilarious.

    You can buy V-Mount plates on Amazon for pretty cheap, could you just attach one to anything? V-Mount coffee maker? V-Mount laptop?

    Ha yea it is a bit odd. I think a plate may bot be quite enough but in theory it could be ”anything”
