Does anyone know if you can daisy chain two quad modules together?
Mine will be for sale as soon as it arrives.
IMO Redvolts are very poor, [don't last long, take a long time to charge, can only charge one at a time, then have to change battery on charger, etc] and only make sense as temporary option in S/H.
Red bricks are much better choice, but I can choose to run them from floor, like battery block for film cameras.
Also quad module loaded with batteries gives Epic same form factor as R1.
Anyone who disagrees - make me an offer!
Well, I really love the quad module, but the size of the volts are a real bonus when used with the SH. and if you've you got the quad charger, you can easily keep up with bricks.
The problem is cost per watthour; 160Wh/~2.5hour GMPs are ~$300... 89Wh/~1.5hour RV XLs are $350... not cool. Plus when you start using that many RVs you essentially need the QuadCharger, which is another $600. Worse still is that the Quad module + adapter module retail for $1950+300... That's equivalent to so many regular/industry standard batteries (v-mount, AB, etc.) that it's kind of crazy that anyone would invest in an RV system.
So, yeah, for $500-800 (with module adapter) it's cool to test out, but at retail it isn't really financially responsible.

great for owner operators but not for rental. No D-Tap is a deal breaker. Volts are great in the side handle for a super lightweight setup, I have 12 which lasts a day. Clients want bricks on the back.
