Nothing is worse than having your battery die while you're taking beautiful pictures or videos. You want to make sure you have a decent bmpcc 4K v mount battery since they work hard to power your camera, flash, and any other accessories you require. By purchasing high-quality batteries, you can extend the life of your camera and reduce the number of extra batteries you need to take.

Moman Power 99 v lock mount battery is suitable Bmpcc 4k cameras, mirrorles cameras, etc.

What is a bmpcc 4K v mount battery?

Bmpcc stands for Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera, which is superior to a basic video camera because it contains expert capabilities that let you replicate the "look" of Hollywood feature films, having 1080P, 4K, 6K, and other screen output. So what battery does bmpcc 4k use? They usually utilize LP-E6, LP-E6N, and other specifications of batteries, but the Original bmpcc battery solution usually can not meet the needs of most photographers, because they can only maintain the photography time of two or three hours on a full charge, which is too inadequate most of the time. Therefore, we recommend using external power for v-mount batteries like Moman’s or Fxlion’s, featuring mini body but huge power.

Why do we choose the v lock type among all the bmpcc power solutions?

There are many different power solutions for bmpcc, such as the above-mentioned removable types of standard LP ones, and battery grips, but all things considered, the V-mount is undoubtedly one of the most worthwhile long-term investments for your photography activities. The first is that it is mounted on a Blackmagic v lock battery plate, which has more global adaptability than a gold mount. In addition, it is very easy, smooth, fast to install or remove, and can be firmly fixed on your equipment, allowing you to charge while shooting.

We can see that the three Blackmagic 4k battery solutions are named after their capacity, with the Power 140 at a staggering 140Wh and the other two not far behind with a capacity of 99Wh. Some may ask what this means. Here's a quick introduction: Remember the formula that Wh=Watt*Hour. For example, Power 99 can make the COLBOR CL60 studio light work at full power for 1.2 hours, while Power 140 can make the same product work at full power for about 1.8 hours, that's the difference between them. The three all have charging cycles of 3000 times, which is far superior to many commercially available types. 

The built-in cells do affect how the external pack of v mount battery for Blackmagic pocket cinema camera 4k performs. The numbers on the inner cells represent the cell dimensions and shape. 21700 ones are physically larger than the 18650 ones and have more capacity to ensure the output that the latter can't provide. Though, they are both of high security, high energy density, and low production cost.

They allow for being charged via D-tap, but the Power 99S and Power 140 have more USB-C options than the Power 99. Though having different kinds and quantities of slots, they all enjoy a broad usage for diverse demands, satisfying requirements of continuous shooting, and multi-device charging. Last but not least, both high drain devices and daily mobile equipment are compatible with them. What they can serve are so many different kinds that almost all devices in a photography combo can be applied by them. Not only the 4k camera, but they also belong to the category of v mount battery for bmpcc 6k, 6kpro, and so on.

Moman v lock batteries for bmpcc camera have different slots for output and input charging. And each port has a plug for protection.

3. Indicated method: Screen display or indicator lights, which design is your preference?

Both Power 99 and Power 140 are using the indicator lights. The former’s is of 5 grids and each for 20% power flashing green. And the latter is of 4 and each for 25% shining red lights. Power 99S Blackmagic cinema camera battery’s remaining power is especially expressed as a percentage on the OLED display screen, which is accurate and visualized. It shows the present level of power use that ranges from fully charged of 100% to completely discharged of 0%. Also, it can be presented in the form of an icon whether it’s undercharged or not. Of course, it would be clearer if you had a specific number for you to handle the power distribution, but the way of light indication is enough for most people, it's eye-catching, and it saves battery life in some way. If you still have doubts, you can take a look at this comparison article of digital camera battery, you might have a new experience and understanding.

What are the similarities that the three commonly possess?

1. Mini and lightweight: They’re all compact bmpcc 4k battery packs for easy carrying.

  • Moman Power 99: 10x7.3x4.9 cm / 3.9x2.8x1.9 inch, 0.53Kg
  • Moman Power 99S: 11x7.5x5.6 cm / 4.3x3x2.2 inch, 0.55Kg
  • Moman Power 140: 10.5x8x5.6 cm / 4.3x3x2.2 inch, 0.71Kg

Three types of Blackmagic v mount battery are palm-size, can easily be held in the hand, or put into a jean’s pocket. Not to mention it surely doesn't take up much space in your equipment kit. In addition, compared to most types of other brands on the market, their weight is also considered to be relatively very lightweight. When you have a handheld photography setup in which multiple devices are mounted on it, including the camera, external screen transmission, fill light, shotgun microphone, etc., in this situation, the tiny box will not give you a big burden but can support the power supply for almost all the devices in the group at the same time. You can hardly imagine how these small batteries contain such a huge amount of energy.

2. Travel-friendly: They’re all v-mount camera batteries that are available for safe aviation.

 Each airline company has quite strict regulations on carrying spare lithium-ion cells on the aircraft. This is because, in case of improper handling, the external battery is likely to have a short circuit, which may lead to fire or explosion, bringing great danger.

According to the FAA and TSA, the three high-capacity v-lock batteries that are under 160Wh can be brought on a plane to travel with you on your photographic excursion, Lithium batteries that have a power output of 100 watthours or less, such as the Power 99 and 99S, are allowed in carry-on bags but not in checked luggage. You are only allowed to bring two batteries, which is more than enough, if you wish to take on batteries that are greater than 100Wh but not greater than 160Wh. The Power 140 v-lock mount external battery of 140Wh is just right in this range. When we carry these powerful batteries on airplanes, we need to pack them well to prevent them from coming into contact with water, flammable and explosive objects, and metals. We suggest that they can be packed in the original box, which is the easiest way.

Moman small v mount battery pack can be mounted on grip or gear to supply power for various devices, like cameras, LED lights, and more.

3. Durable and secure: They’re all equipped with an intelligent protection system.

Moman Blackmagic 4k external battery is designed to come with a smart protection system, such as overheating protection, short circuit protection, and more, effectively avoiding dangerous accidents and possible circumstances like overcharge or discharge, which would seriously affecting how long do a v mount battery last. Furthermore, they can restore automatically, and this means they can restore themselves to full functioning capacity, greatly reducing the impact of daily natural self-discharge.

The three v mount battery solution for bmpcc is very reliable and reassuringly has stability and a certain self-protection system. Each interface has a soft rubber plug, not only dustproof but also has a protective function, to some extent to avoid breakage to the interface and contact with things that may cause a short circuit such as water or metals. We just need to dial the plugs away when charging.

Conclusion

When you choose a bmpcc 4k v mount battery, not the higher capacity and higher output are better, you also have to look at your budget and real needs. After buying it, learn how to use a v mount battery. Ask yourself, how long do your shots usually last at a time? How is the power consumption? What ports does your device support for charging?
