Battery System for NanoFlash

Hi all:

I've been using Nebtek battery adaptors for my Wolf Seeberg/Nebtek video assist system for about a year and I'm thrilled with how it works. I'm wondering if a Hirose adapted version of the same system might work as well with the NanoFlash or even the XDR. See it here: Nebtek: Product Detail

It converts 7.2v to 12v... which seems unnecessary with the Nano but I am unaware of any disadvantage to that. I am also unaware of a plain Sony L battery holder with a pigtail that could have a Hirose mounted on it.

Thoughts?

Thanks!

Dear Bob,

The NEBTEK battery adapters can be modifed to provide a 4-Pin Female Hirose connector for the nanoFlash.

We are building our own L-Series battery cradle for the nanoFlash.

The power requirements of the Flash XDR are higher, over 13 watts.

I do not know, at this time, if the NEBTEK adapter can provide that much power.

A standard 7.2 to 8.4 Volt battery is more efficient, for our recorders, than higher voltages.
