In the bebop Micro series, two new batteries, one for V-mount, the other for gold-mount compatibility, are introduced. With a capacity of 200 Wh, they are even more powerful, but still as compact as the previously available models. They measure 75 x 101 x 81mm and are therefore significantly smaller than the normal V-Mount 200Wh broadcast version from the same company (94 x 144 x 58mm). The weight is 0,95Kg.

The charge level is indicated by a lateral, five-stage LED display (100% - 80% - 60% - 40% - 20%). As a special feature, bebop has also integrated a small LED flashlight into the Micro batteries, which brightens up dark film locations at the touch of a button.
A rainproof "Twist D-Tap" output allows the connection of a D-Tap plug with free choice of cable routing from left or right. Data protocols from ARRI, RED and Sony cameras are supported. A USB connection (5.0 V; max. 1.0 A) on the battery case allows accessories such as smartphones etc. to be charged.
Still nice is the possibility to exchange and reload the cells of all bebob batteries, thus also these, if their capacity is no longer sufficient after a longer use. They should survive falls from a height of up to 1.5m without damage.
The V200micro and A200micro Li-Ion batteries will cost 445 euro plus VAT, but don´t seem to be available yet.
