How to know our battery is fully charged:
- Method 1: four led lndicator lamps on the side of our battery are on and not flash
- Method 2:the indicator lamp on our adaptor charger is green.
- Your Cameras/Camcorder must meet: Input voltage: 12-16.8V
- Current: less than 10A
- V mounted (the pin of our V mount is standard 2.5mm),so pls make sure the pin of your v mount plate is same as ours.
Because RED Camera's V mount size is a little different with ours, our battery may have connection problem on RED series camera such as RED Epic-W Camera, RED Wooden camera blueshape V mount.RED Weapon series
if power disconnect happens, try below:
slightly adjust v lock at my camera plate so battery goes down a little bit further (around 1 mm) and moved connectors a little bit up (there's no much movement but I think around 0.5 mm).

I'm an event and wedding videographer, where I am constantly on the move and rarely near a power source for very long. Every second of my 10-14 hour days is spent with my camera on the move, so battery longevity and reliability are absolutely paramount.
When shooting weddings, I use a DJI Ronin M mounted upside down on a Jockey 5th Axis Stabilizer, with a Sony A7r2, a SmallHD 701 lite monitor, a D-tap powered video light, and a Zoom H5n recorder. For the A7r2 I use a dummy battery converter to convert it to D-tap and I use a Canon lp-e6 converter to convert the Small HD 701 lite to use d-tap power as well. I then have this MAXOAK battery on a v-mount to d-tap plate mounted to the jockey arm, with a d-tap port splitter (converts one d-tap port to 4) so that all of my d-tap equipment plugs into this one battery. This means much of my equipment (camera, monitor, light) is powered from this MAXOAK battery alone. This is a godsend because I now have 2 batteries to keep up with (Ronin M battery and the MAXOAK), instead of about 5 and when I change out the one MAXOAK battery, it changes out the battery for all attached equipment. Almost zero downtime.
This past weekend I shot a wedding from 8am (to get brides arrival, getting ready, daily events, etc) to when they left the reception at around 1045pm. ONE single MAXOAK battery lasted me from 8am until around 7pm (11 hours) powering the light, camera, and monitor at 100% brightness all day. When I unplugged the first MAXOAK battery, it still had one green light left, so it was around 20%. Based on the percentage decrease per hour, I could have likely finished a 14 hour filming session over the course of a whole day on a single battery pack with all of my primary equipment pulling from the battery for power. This is on a MAXOAK battery that I bought about 2 years ago, so almost zero battery cell degradation has occurred. That is excellent.
With the v-mount quick release, changing a battery can be done in about 2-4 seconds so downtime isn't an issue at all.
I've been very impressed with this battery in the time I've spent with it. The above recent example was using a MAXOAK battery that I bought about 2 years ago, so it has held its energy capacity like a champ through quite a few recharges. I have now bought 4 of these batteries for my other cameras (attaching these to tripods to power cameras for a very long duration is great when I'm solo filming a wedding ceremony with 4 cameras at different locations) and I have not ever had a single hiccup from any of them. Power delivery is constant and reliable, they also never get warm.
IMPORTANT- Do keep in mind however that the d-tap port on the battery itself does NOT supply power. It is for charging ONLY. To connect d-tap devices to this battery you need a v-mount plate with a d-tap out connection. In purchasing a v-mount plate, don't spend less than ~$125, as the locking mechanism on most of the cheaper ones is plastic with a weak spring and the loose connection will cause the power to cut out with even slight movement. That's not good when it happens in the middle of a crucial scene and you lose footage. Get a good v-mount plate, as this battery is only as good as the plate it's mounted to.
I can't imagine many projects requiring more than 1-2 of these batteries unless it's a multi-day project with no access to a power source to charge. These batteries are excellent value and provide a TON of power for a very cheap price. When paired with a good v-mount plate, these are some of the best batteries that you can buy for powering d-tap equipment. Highly HIGHLY recommended.
The build could be better, it's just inexpensive plastic and if you shake the battery, you can hear small pieces of plastic flashing rattle around in the case. I don't see the case being able to take drops from a standing height too many times. Also, while it includes a fast charger (which is a great deal) it worries me that it might be shortening the life of the battery by charging it so quickly. I try to charge with a Switronix slow charger but it's certainly handy to keep a fast charger on set.
On a typical shooting day, this battery powers a Blackmagic Production Camera, 7" Lilliput monitor and an SDI to HDMI adapter for a good chunk of the shooting schedule. I'm guessing it's close to 5 hours of powered on, but intermittent recording. Pure recording time is closer to 2-3 hours of power.
It really is a good solution for the money and if you had access to AC power, I would imagine two of these could keep you shooting continuously with the included charger. Just take care not to drop it.
