New super-charged li-ion battery
T he TYC-2S is a new high power, 130Wh Li-ion battery, distributed in Europe by Ianiro International. Developed by
T&Y, the V-mount battery is ruggedly built and comes complete with a protective carry case. Like most current
professional models, the TYC-2S features a d-tap out to power essential accessories, such as sound recording
equipment or on-camera lighting. The products long life (with over 500 cycles), intelligent circuit control protection and
4-step LED charge indicator make it an ideal broadcast system.
Accompanying the battery is TYC-2S a new dual charger, capable of re-charging two V-mount batteries at the same
time as outputting 50W from its standard XLR port. The system is very lightweight at only 1.4kg, making it an excellent
choice for use on location.
High capacity batteries still carry premium
pricing despite the fact that V-mount batteries
are no longer restricted to broadcast use.
DSLRs and small cameras are nowadays
being accessorized with a multitude of
electrical components so a reliable, durable
130Wh battery at this price will be very
welcome in the market. Said Nick Allen-Miles
of Ianiro International.
The battery and dual charger each retail for
under £129 excluding Vat, making them
amongst the most competitively priced
products on the market.
