PAg will present the new Mini PAGlink batteries at the IBC 2018, a smaller version of the normal size PAGlink batteries and are intended for smaller 4K cameras like the Panasonic EVA1, Sony FS5/FS7 and accessories. The Paglink batteries are characterized by the fact that you can pack several of them together as a single battery use or charge. The advantage: depending on the application, the current capacity and the weight can be increased or decreased.
PAg will offer the Mini PAGlink batteries in 50Wh and 100Wh versions for V-Mount and Gold Mount plates. The batteries deliver up to 12A and have integrated 12V outputs for the power supply of accessories such as LED lights or mobile monitors.
Mini PAGlink Battery
The Mini PAGlink have an intelligent combination for discharging and charging - so 50 and 100Wh batteries can be mixed and connected at any state of charge, delivering up to 12A of power. Batteries can be added or replaced during operation to ensure that power is always available for the intake. The distribution of the current power requirement among the individual batteries extends the overall service life. Each battery has a fixed D-Tap output and a removable 2A USB port that can be exchanged for a Lemo, Hirose or other D-Tap.
Other special features include a high-resolution numeric display of running time under load, available capacity in percent and battery data such as the number of charge/discharge cycles. Battery capacity can also be displayed in the camera&s viewfinder or display.
Mini PAGlink compared to standard batteries
Up to 8 batteries of any capacity and state of charge can be charged simultaneously with one charger. PAG also offers an ultra-compact micro charger that can be powered by a variety of 5-20V DC power sources for mobile use.
The housing of the Mini PAGlink batteries is robust and features a rubberized outer band for added protection. The battery also has two socket inserts (1/4") that allow a handle or accessory holder to be attached to individual or connected batteries. The Mini PAGlink batteries will be available in 2019.
