Lithium-ion batteries are the standard found in most portable electronics these days. They are significantly lighter than most other technologies, this weight saving without any loss of power is a perfect for camera operators with ever-more power-hungry cameras. Li-ion batteries are not affected by the memory charging effect, so have a longer life-cycle.

What information does the built-in LCD screen show?

With Dionic XT there is no need to try to calculate the remaining run time of your camera or device, simply attach the battery and the large on-board backlit display will tell you the remaining run-time hours and minutes for your device. For battery capacity as a percentage and other real-time diagnostics simply tap the battery to scroll though more information. You will always know exactly how long you can work, no more power failures in the field.

Can the Dionic XT show battery charge level in my camera viewfinder?

Yes, many cameras can read the battery charge levels on Gold Mount and V-Mount batteries provided through the mount. All Dionic XT batteries supply that information.

I have V-Mount battery plates, can I still use Dionic XT batteries?

Yes you can. All Dionic XT batteries are available in both V-Mount and Gold Mount versions, so everyone can enjoy Anton/Bauer power.

Can Dionic XT batteries only charge on V-Mount or Gold Mount chargers made by Anton/Bauer?

Dionic XT batteries can be charged on all current Anton/Bauer chargers as well as earlier model chargers. Older chargers should be updated the latest firmware version. Contact Anton/Bauer customer service to check full compatibility. They are also compatible with many V-Mount or Gold Mount chargers produced by other manufacturers. Check with your charger manufacturer for details.

How many times can I charge a Dionic XT battery?

Dionic XT batteries contain unique technology that increases run-time and lengthens life cycle, together with Anton/Bauer’s balanced, high-quality cells that deliver a long performance life. Dionic XT batteries have a warrantied life of 1200 cycles.

What amperage can the Dionic XT batteries supply?

Amperage (abbreviated as A) is a measure of current. To choose the right battery for your system, simply add up the current draw of the individual components being powered to determine the system draw. Dionic XT batteries supply up to 12A of current. Most mid production rigs, and portable setups are well below 10A. Larger, energy hungry cine cameras that might include motorized lenses, monitor, etc sometimes go over the 10A limit and will need a 12A battery. The right power solution is based on the needs of the system being powered.

Can I travel on a plane with Dionic XT batteries?

Yes. According to IATA regulations, Lithium-ion batteries may not travel in the hold of a passenger aircraft, however, Dionic XT 90 and 150 Wh batteries may be taken on-board in your carry-on baggage subject to the prior approval of your airline. Check with your airline’s rules for specific limitations. You can check the latest IATA regulations here. Remember, spare batteries should be individually protected to prevent the possibility of short circuits.

What is Smart USB?

Dionic XT’s Smart USB port supplies a regulated 5 volts and maximum 2 Amps current. This means mobile devices such as smart phones and tablets can safely charge from a Dionic XT battery as quick and reliably as AC power.

What is the difference between P-TAP and D-TAP?

It’s the same thing. P-TAP is short for PowerTap® a power outlet port invented by Anton/Bauer as a way to power external accessories in addition to the camera. As PowerTap is a registered trademark of Anton/Bauer, other manufacturers sometimes call it a D-TAP port.
