Anton/Bauer’s Dionic XT: “The New Workhorse Battery You’ve Been Looking For”

Emmy-Winning DoP & Technical Advisor, The Camera Dept.

“We've been purchasing Anton/Bauer batteries for over fifteen years mainly due to the fact that they are the most reliable battery for us and our rental customers. Backed by Anton/Bauer’s excellent customer service we’ve never been left high and dry. As the cameras have become more power hungry, Anton Bauer have also delivered on the demands of camera operators and assistants to make batteries lighter, stronger, and faster. Filmmaker Bertie Gregory recently put the new Dionic XT through its paces in South Georgia, Antarctica. Find out how he got on in the extreme weather conditions.

The new XT battery is the best battery AB has ever made and it arrived at the perfect time. When we took delivery of our Alexa LF camera we knew power was going to be an issue. I researched and tested a lot of different options but the Wooden Camera sharkfin paired with XT batteries are the perfect solution for the high current draw from the camera. The best part is we don’t have to purchase a new style of battery; the XT batteries will work with the rest our inventory. The slim profile, light weight, and hot-swap ability, are key features the operators will appreciate on set. With the increased cell life and stronger casing, we look forward to the XT becoming our new workhorse battery.”
