    looking good! Option A makes more sense to me, because it looks like on Option B a large v mount might protrude from the side and make the camera awkward to handle... plus vertical mounting seems more secure and more inline with industry standards..

    Would there be a receiver option as well or is this intended only for monitoring on a mobile device?

    This is funny. I'm in the middle of the provisional planning of my future Komodo rig and came to the conclusion that if I want a clean and compact solution, I have to buy a smaller V-mount battery. And guess: It would be mounted sideways, like ATOM 600 KV Option B! The new IDX IMICRO-98 and -150 are so small that they are not much larger than two Canon BP-955 and BP-975 respectively. And the weight should also be comparable. IDX told me that battery orientation is not a factor in operational safety / reliability.

    Here's the link: http://www.idxtek.com/products/imicro-98

    The main advantage of option B is that the battery won't interfere with Komodos connectors, that's why I'd prefer B over A, combined with small V-Mount batteries like the ones mentioned above.

    Looks like a neat solution for those who need it. Well done!

    Option A definitely is more of a traditional approach with the battery orientation and would slightly more secure if the battery orientation was a concern. The benefit of Option B is that it wouldn't obstruct the bottom I/O area and would compliment the KOMODO well.

    That's amazing! and yes, a lot of V-mount batteries have a tighter form factor now and would work great with Option B.

    A for me. Think it would mount on smaller gimbal better

    Mounting V-Mounts sideways is just such a liability. V-Mount is a weak connection in general, sideways even more so.

    Option A ist far more universial, better fitted to regular v-mounts, I guess even changing batteries from the operator / not the AC side would be faster/better. Handling and user friendliness is such a meticulous field that even changing the orientation of the battery for fast swaps can make 0.2s difference which can again make the differences whether it feels good to use or not. That's what differentiates good from ok products in the long run. It's just a tiny thing, but locking v-mounts top->down might be such a thing compared right->left. Just my opinion though.

    So for me, there is nothing really going for version B, except for a just slightly smaller possible footprint, which you could have even smaller by using the intended canon batteries instead for ultra small builds and use just the 600 KV but off camera.

    A all the way for me!

    I think you should make one with the same back as komodo with the dual canon slots. Makes it so much lighter and able to hot swap

    It would be nice to have a D-Tap connector built in to pass power to focus motors for example. I concur that having the option to pass the canon BP batteries through would be nice for hot swapping, but its not a necessity. Also its important that it matches the quality/design language of the Komodo which from the rendering above it seems to so far!
