The Switronix Powerbase-70 is a 77Wh 14.8V lithium-ion battery pack designed to provide additional battery life for the Panasonic GH4. Key features include:
- Extended Battery Life. The Powerbase-70 provides nearly 6-times the battery life compared to the DMW-BLF19 battery that comes with the camera body.
- D-Tap Connectors. It features two D-tap connectors, allowing you to power up to two additional 12V accessories. If you plan on using the Panasonic DMW-YAGH Interface Unit, you’ll want to rent the D-Tap to XLR4 Cable (both separate rental items).
- Handheld Use. The Powerbase-70 attaches the the bottom of the camera via 1/4"-20 quick-release plate, allowing you to work without a large setup. However, it also has the flexibility of a 12" DC cable if mounting to a large support rig.
The FAA have changed their guidelines dealing with rechargeable lithium-ion battery packs. If during baggage inspection the TSA finds batteries that are not in compliance with their rules, they will discard them, and we will charge you for the missing equipment. Consider shipping ahead to a FedEx store if you will be traveling to your shoot location.
