I've been testing the AB back with a Dionic 90 tonight. So far it's been powered continuously for 5 hours and it looks like I still have 1/3rd battery charge left. Pretty sweet.

I know the IDX uses the Sony V-Mount/V-Lock system, what does the AB mount use? Anyone able to show me a photo of the AB adaptor without a battery attached?

Hey Martland,
So your battery will be basically the same size and shape of the stock one? When will it be available and how much?

Warren, in your viewfinder you see 14-16V of power, or 7.2 V with the AB adapter and Dionic battery?
I use a IDX, and I can see only 14-16V instead 7.2 V

What's the price of a couple of Swit battries and a charger? I understand it mounts to an AB gold mount? How much doesn the mount sales for?

Funny, the IDX show 16V. I'll call IDX if this is normal

I paid US $349 for the IDX adapter only.

Prices

The Swit battries as mentioned were bought 18 months back for the DVC Pro camera, pls check the links mentioned above.
I paid US 225/- plus shipping for the Anton Bauer Adapter, the Adapter came from a dealer in Singapore.

Can you buy these Swit batteries in the U.S or Europe? Google didn't turn up anything.

I just hooked up my gold mount and I see 15 volts in the viewfinder also. I am using an older AB ProFormer 30 watt battery. I also don't see any gauge that tells me how much battery I have left, not even with the stock battery. Unless I just have that turned off somewhere.

I don't see battery remaining in the viewfinder, just the voltage. When using the Gold Mount, I think it's supposed to be converting the 14 V to 7.2 V so I'm surprised you'd see something else.
