12V to 7.2V

A little while ago I asked here, who make a 12V 4pin XLR to 7.2V converter for the HD100, and nobody can give a usuable answer. I need use my portable 12V batteries (can, belt) which are has a 4pin XLR output.
Well... I find Alex Dolgin
http://www.dolgin.net/JVCConverter.htm
and after I talked to him, he modified his converter (which is was designed for the Pana DVX100, and the Canon XL1-2) for the HD100. I ordered one and later (after he adjusted the output a little bit higher) I bought one more. (Now actually he selling this converter for all HDV cameras)
It's work very good, very light and give a stable 7.2V for my camera.
So, now I can use my portable 12V batteries.
Thanks Alex!

Thanks Laszlo, that could be very handy to have around.

How long have you been using the ones you bought? And does the camera read as 7.2 on the viewfinder when in use?

I bought my first one about seven weeks ago. My second came two weeks ago. And yes, it's show 7.1 - 7.2V
Nice, small and light enough. I velcroed to my 12V "powercan" and I use a 4pin XLR coiled cable (nice and short) from the powercan to this converter. From here I use the supplied cable (with 2.5 mm connector) to the camera

Thank you Laszlo for mentioning! To celebrate the new product introduction (with Laszlo help) we extend our normal 12 months warranty to 24 months to anybody ordering any* our product this month just for mentioning this thread. And yes, Laszlo is getting it too retroactively. Enjoy!
