Travel Safe Power Solutions
The latest innovations from Swit are
designed to solve the problem of
travelling with Lithium Ion batteries.
When you are shooting abroad,
often to areas of unreliable DC
power source, it is essential to have
enough power to complete your
shoot without any costly time delays.
IATA Flight regulations restrict the
size of battery that you can travel
with to under 100Wh. Well, what if
you need more?
The newly designed S-8132S
(126Wh) and S-8192S (184Wh)
batteries are splittable into two
sections that individually comply with
the regulations. You simply detach
the two halves before travelling and
then re-attach when you arrive, and
you now have high capacity V-Lock
or Gold Mount batteries to use
abroad. It is worth noting that there
is a chip in the batteries that link the
halves to each other, so you cannot
mix and match the individual halves.
Swit also manufacture a reliable,
tried and tested alternative to
manufacturer own brand batteries.
With an already comprehensive
range of solutions for cameras
from Sony, Canon, JVC and
Panasonic, there are two new
additions to the line up.
The S-8U63 is a fully compatible
alternative for the Sony PMW-
EX range. The battery features
a Pole Jack and DC output
terminal for powering and charging
accessories, and gives full battery
life information on the LCD of the
camera. The S-8I50 works with the very
popular JVC GY-HM600 and GY-
HM650 camcorders. There is also
a Pole Jack and USB output on
this battery, and a dual channel
charger the S-3602I.
The new batteries are shipping
now and are available through any
authorised Swit reseller, or
