    Let me introduce 14.8V 18650 Battery Enclosure Module developed by RADIOPROEKTOR for Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera (BMMCC) and Blackmagic Micro Studio Camera 4K (BMMSC).
    This Battery Module uses Canon LP-E6 type battery plate as a quick release clamp mount, and outputs 14.8V power from external DC barrel socket connectors. It perfectly fits to size and shape of SmallRig BMMCC/BMMSC cage and compatible with BMMCC/BMMSC Wooden Camera Cage. It can be used with any other rigs, cameras, LED lights, monitors, wireless follow focus motors, etc.. It is also compatible with other custom made BMMCC/BMMSC accessories developed by RADIOPROEKTOR.
    Built-in mini Cheese Plate allows to connect various Quick Release mounting systems. Quality electronic components and connectors inside and outside. Built-in DC power splitter allows to plug up to 3 devices simultaneously. Built-in battery capacity meter and ON/OFF switch. Perfect cable management, powerful, lightweight, low profile, cost-efficient and future-proof.

    Battery cells are NOT included in the package. You can purchase any 4x 18650 type UNPROTECTED lithium-ion battery cells somewhere in your local electronics store. It will cost you only $20-25 total.

    Dummy Canon LP-E6 type Connection Plate was designed as quick release clamp system only. It don't have any electronic contacts and don't provide any voltage to the camera.

    Always unplug all devices from the battery before charging. Use recommended 16.8V 2A CC/CV (Constant-Current/Constant-Voltage) charger. Do NOT use simple DC power supply adapters to charge this battery module!

    It is also recommend to use separate battery to power the monitor. Powering camera and monitor connected to camera HDMI port from same battery cause the "Ground Loop" problem. Ground Looped connection combined with electrostatic discharge sparks and poor quality HDMI cable shield insulation may permanently burn camera HDMI/SDI port. You can read more about Ground Loop problem investigation here: http://www.bmcuser.com/showthread.ph...l=1#post254391

    Battery cells FAQ:
    To avoid problems with Air Mail shipping, battery cells are NOT included in the package. Please purchase 4x 18650 sized UNPROTECTED lithium-ion battery cells somewhere in your local electronics store. Those battery cells are very common nowadays and will cost about $20-25 total.
    Do NOT purchase batteries from unknown sources and unknown online sellers!
    Do NOT purchase cheaper 18650 batteries labeled with something crazy like "4000mAh" or more. Those are fake and crap cells!
    Do NOT mix different battery cells with different capacity, different brands or different age!
    Always keep all electrical contacts clean. Wipe off fingertips with isopropyl alcohol moistened cloth or paper!

    Charger FAQ:
    Any existing 16.8V 1-2A CC/CV (Constant-Current/Constant-Voltage) charger will work and will cost you starting from $3:
    https://www.ebay.com/sch/16.8V+charger
    https://www.aliexpress.com/wholesale...=16.8V+charger
    Some battery cells require 1A, some 1.7A normal charge current. For rapid charging some modern batteries may support maximum current up to 4A, but they may became very hot during that extreme charging. Higher charging current = faster charge = quicker battery degradation, but i think it is not a problem when you can just replace battery cells after about 500 full charge cycles (1-3 years of usage). 2A probably the safest and most optimal charging current that provides best speed vs quality ratio. Just to be safe and simple - do NOT use charging current larger than 2A for this battery enclosure.
    Here is recommended reliable 16.8V charger that you can order directly from manufacturer: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/16-8...465816636.html . 1A, 2A, 2.5A, 3A, 4A and 5A models available. They use quality internal parts and have recognizable design that can't be confused with other DC adapters in your bag. Just ask seller for DC plug 5.5x2.1mm and AC plug type depending of your worldwide location.



    DC power connectors compatibility FAQ:
    It is very odd and irrational, but there are two almost similar DC power connector standards walking between devices all around the world: 5.5mm (outer size) x 2.1mm (inner size) and 5.5mm (outer size) x 2.5mm (inner size).
    5.5x2.5mm plug usually fits to 5.5x2.1mm socket but connection may be not too perfect if plug appears too old and outworn.
    5.5x2.1mm plug do NOT fits to 5.5x2.5mm socket.
    It is better to use plug connectors with inner center spring contact. They better hold center pin mismatches.

    If you need more different customized cables check Lanparte online store, WOODEN CAMERA Power Cable Customizer, Amazon, AliExpress, B&H, Adorama or any other similar marketplace.

    Powering Tilta Nucleus Nano and Nucleus M FAQ:

    Because Battery Enclosure have multiple parallel sockets, you can connect two or more Battery Enclosures with provided DC cable and multiply capacity! 2x batteries give you 100 watt-hour total, 3x batteries 150 watt-hour and so on... voltage remains unchanged. This may be useful for power hungry Pocket 4K camera users. This setup also allow to hot swap batteries.
    Multiple batteries may be attached to single cheese plate or rods, so you can use them as one single brick.

    Just got Shijan’s battery module for the Micro Studio camera, very nice job. Perfect size for small camera rigs, with enough power to run my Micro Studio and a PixE Monitor/recorder, with power to spare. This is like having a small V mount camera battery. I added the Sanyo batteries, the charger worked quickly, about 2hrs to change them up to 16.5vdc. The module is well made and should give long service. What is nice, you can easily change out the Batteries yourself, if and when needed.
    Cheers
