Global Broadcast Industry News caught up with Robert Holland and Neil Marflitt of IDX Europe at BSC 2022, the team were keen to promote the IPL and Duo ranges of batteries. Here is a quick summary of both product ranges.
New IPL Powerlink Batteries; for extended run times and charging.
IPL Series PowerLink batteries are the newest stackable v-mount solutions for digital cinema cameras where infinite runtimes are required. Up to four can be linked together with hot swap capability.

The IPL Series also includes two 80W D-Taps and one USB output to power additional items. Equipped with a V-Torch LED light, this standard feature makes the IPL batteries easy to mount in dark environments. Accurate power levels are displayed in 10% increments via a 5 LED power indicator.
New Charging Solutions; D-Tap advanced, X-tap socket and stacked charging.
The VL-DT1 is a single channel, low cost, portable charger designed to charge batteries with a D-Tap Advanced port. The D-Tap Advanced’s three pin design monitors the cell status to ensure correct, controlled charging which prolongs battery life.
