Re: Budget battery plate

Try Global Media Pro...$400 (3x batteries (4 hrs each) + dual charger (4hrs charging 2 batteries)).

If that's too expensive, then make your own batteries, but be careful to keep the voltage and current flow constant. Before I bought my GMP batteries, I used a diesel generator to power my camera via a UPS (how crazy is that?). The experiment didn't last 2 days, and the APC UPS didn't either.
