The new compact 2-position device can charge up to 16 PAGlink batteries simultaneously, eight on each position. This is said to be ideal for rental facilities as it reduces the number of chargers required to manage a large battery inventory. PAG says that eight batteries can be fully-charged in less than 12 hours. A built-in battery display reveals individual charge status. Other useful features include a manually selectable Recovery Charge programme for deeply discharged batteries. The PL16 also incorporates a 100W camera power supply, compatible with worldwide AC supplies, and featuring an XLR4 output. The PAGlink range will be available via Revolve Solutions (booth C10840) and Alphatron (booth C8739). www.paguk.com 20 | KITPLUS - THE TV-BAY MAGAZINE: ISSUE 100 APRIL 2015
