NEW RED BATTERY -- Sounds GREAT!
on Jun 2, 2009 at 3:05:26 pm

So I purchased a Torchled TL-50 from Switronix inc. and I am a member of their mailing list. I just got an email last night with them announcing a brand new battery for the RED camera. It is 95 watts, approved for airline travel, and passes the data through to the RED cam. What seems cool is it will charge on any RED charger, v-mount (L-ion) charger or their 4 bay fast charger they have for red batts.

The email said the release is mid june. Its about time someone rivaled reds expensive monopoly of products. Anyone else feel the same?

Expensive monopoly of products?

eh?

RED changed the entire imaging world with the release of a camera that is 1/10 the cost of what many other digital cinema cameras are and you think they have a expensive monopoly?

Sorry you don't even have a clue.

Plus, they use standards like V-mount and usual voltage. When one of our first Red batteries went down during a shoot, we just drove to the next rental shop in Berlin and got another battery – only the display wasn't fed with info.

Where's the monopoly?

Maybe Monopoly was a harsh word since I was referring to the accessories I was looking to buy. I 100% agree they are reasonable and within my poor choice of words I was referring to my issues of things such as not passing data through to the camera. I apologize for not making myself clear, and not expressing my excitement on getting a system I can take on the plane. I have a clue...just tired.

You can consider SWIT. They are airline safe and the correct voltage.

This is not the exact model I use but they break in two for airline travel.

Thanks for the heads-up. The whole airline-safe thing is pretty important to me.
