Bebob high load batteries are designed to be mounted on cinema cameras via optional adapters that allow for 20A of discharge current. When used without an adapter, they support up to a 10A draw. The Bebob V290RM-CINE 14.8V 293Wh High Load V-Mount Li-Ion Battery is compatible with the ARRI BAB-HV V-mount battery adapter for the Alexa LF, the Bebob ML-120V/V HL V-mount adapter, and the Bebob CINE-VMM-HL V-mount adapter. The battery and adapter safely combine to continuously deliver 20A with no risk to the connector pins nor the battery cells.
In addition to all this, Bebob batteries are designed to be strong, reliable, and versatile. This battery is built to withstand falls from 4.9′, yet, if it cracks for some other reason, any mechanical component is replaceable by Bebob thanks to the modular design. Similarly, when the battery capacity weakens after years of use, the batteries can be re-celled at a discount by Bebob. To help decide when to re-cell, a status alarm is built into the battery that triggers a yellow LED indicator when the capacity drops below 80% over time and a red LED when below 60%.
Another flexible aspect is the twist D-Tap. Normally you’re limited to connecting a D-Tap cable only one way, the way it fits. But the V290RM-CINE’s twist D-Tap features three pins, a positive ground pin in the center and a negative one on each side of the positive. You can plug in your cable one way or flip it around and connect it the other way. The V290RM-CINE also provides a USB port for charging your mobile devices on location.
The V290RM-CINE features lithium-ion trimix cells made in Japan and offers a capacity of 293Wh. It has a 5-step LED fuel gauge and is compatible with Bebob, IDX, and Sony chargers. Charging time is approximately 3 hours when using Bebob VS2/VS4 chargers.
