Once you get a v mount battery, it means you have a strong backup for various photography or videography shooting activities away from interruption caused by a lack of electricity, such as on-the-go vlogging, wedding lives to film, and so on. But one battery is not enough, it needs some auxiliary accessories. This blog will list four sets of must-have equipment in the v mount battery kit, tell you why you need them, and offer some nice options and discounted bundles.

1. V mount battery: Charge for photography devices
The v-mount battery adapter is considered to be an essential member of the v-lock battery kit. It is the bridge between the v-mounts and the photography setup. It allows v lock batteries to firmly attach to devices like bmpcc cameras or grasp tightly to the studio pole. The ideal option is a v-lock battery plate that can accommodate any standard size or most popular size v-mount batteries. Let me introduce to you two distinct kinds of mount plates.

Moman Power 99 contains eight 18650 grade A inbuilt cells and possesses an amazing capacity of 99Wh, a voltage of 14.4V, and an available recharge cycle over 3000 times. It is far more than any other common v-mounts having only 500 times in average on the market. It weighs only 0.53kg but supports a max. power output of 200W. The contrast is fascinating.
When compared to the NP-F500 battery, the Power 99 BMPCC v mount battery’s capacity is nearly 3.5pcs, which is stunningly strong. Consequently, it has sufficient power to charge 200 Watts of multiple devices simultaneously while you are filming with a maximum continuous current rating of up to 15A, including DSLRs, RGB studio lights, and monitors with v-mount battery plates.

3. Battery charger: Replenish the external batteries of the v mount battery kit
The v mount battery is a kind of removable power source that provides power to various devices, but it is also a rechargeable lithium-ion battery that needs to be fueled up. The D-tap connector is the most usual charging access, which is also common for gold-mounts and np-f series. Some battery types also have other options, such as the Moman Power 99S and Power 140. They have a d-tap input as well as a USB-C charging choice.

It can be used not only for v-mount batteries but also for other batteries and devices that are designed with d-tap input. A d-tap cord plays an important role in a kit of Blackmagic pocket 4k v mount battery since it has a high-performance output of max, 1A alternating current at 100 to 240V, and an input of max, being safe and reliable.
V mount battery charger with dual channel
This type is not for sale at the Moman PhotoGears Store, but you can find it on the market. V-mount chargers today featuring dual channels, are able to charge two high-capacity v mount batteries simultaneously. There are also chargers with three or more channels, but only if you have so many and you have the need to charge them at the same time. Generally speaking, a photographer will have one or two batteries for use and replacement. If one of them runs out you will bring in another backup in the v mount battery kit to do the replacement. At this time you can give the rest of the one charge. This depends on your personal situation.
4. D-tap cable: Offer stable input and output connection for v-mount power sources
If you are a photography beginner, then do not forget to choose a v-lock power cord or d-tap when buying initial preparation equipment and accessories. This is not usually included in v-mount battery products, but many devices that are used for charging, as well as many battery types including its own, np-f dummy batteries, etc., support d-tap input. Now you have the power source and the device or battery lacking power, a cable that connects the two and provides strong output as well as stable current is what you need.
