Re: JVC GY-HD100U....battery

Thank you Don and John. I appreciate the input. Sorry Don for miss reading the post.

I like the idea of the AB. Would be nice to have a good amount of power. Maybe I can locate these for a good price somewhere.

Thank you.

Re: JVC GY-HD100U....battery

No problem. I probably didn't write to clearly.

You might also consider V-lock like IDX or Sony. The IDX are less cost than the Anton Bauer and like I said before, I run my HM700 with IDX with a dual channel wireless receiver and even the 68 watt batteries run the camera for about 4 hours and the 95 watt about 6. The plates are the same price but the battery cost difference could help you make the choice.

Re: JVC GY-HD100U....battery

Great advice. I will look around and see what I can find. Several hours of power would be nice.

Thank you.

Re: JVC GY-HD100U....battery

I will dig out my Jvc cameras, I still have two 100 series that work perfectly, and I will take photos of the batteries and connections. I am left a little confused here, the batteries I ordered just turned up and work perfectly, and according to my records I have six 2200 batteries somewhere and two chargers.

I think I just don't worry - I buy cheap, and if the products are good I use them, and if they are poor, as happened a few times on some purchases compared to the cost of a camera, they're ok to junk.

Re: JVC GY-HD100U....battery

The batteries have 4 contacts - the originals, the Chinese ones and the IDX adaptor, however, the camera only has wipe contacts for 3, and the charger only needs access to 2. Two of the batteries I pulled out are actually 3300mAh which was a surprise.

There are plenty of these on Amazon and elsewhere - and have bags of power for longer runs.
3300mAh Battery For JVC GR-DVL367EG, GR-DVL725: Amazon.co.uk: Camera & Photo
is an example - and not even that expensive - surely worth buying just one to see - there must be US dealers.

Re: JVC GY-HD100U....battery

Hi Paul,

My original battery that came when I bought the camera new has 3 contacts :

JVC V428U 7.2 2800 mAh

My thought was the new batteries would have 3 contacts, also. That's why I wanted to check in the forum for replies so I don't get something that would cause a problem with the cam.

I appreciate all the feedback from the forum. It sure is nice to have a forum with helpful people.
