IIDX battery and DR-HD100 bracket

Hi,

I'm using 2 IDX Endura 7s batteries with my HD-251.
The Endura's don't last that long with the HD251, DR-HD100, and PAG light.

The DR-HD100 is mounted on the back with the new bracket. I'm wondering if a IDX Endura 10 with a 7s will fit between the DR-HD100 bracket and the camera.

My other option is to buy 1 or 2 Endura 7 batteries. So I can slide the 7s battery on the back of a Endura 7.

Anybody else using 2 Endura's athe the same time with a DR-HD100?

i think the difference is about 3cm, how much room do you have to spare?

a question: how do you power the dr-hd100 from the idx batteries? Im have the idx mount plate for the hd110 and am thinking about switching to tapeless as well, but Im not sure how to power the hd.

There is a "D" power tap on the IDX mount. This allows you to run what ever you want from the IDX battery. Monitor, light, HD, etc. as long as you can find a D tap cable for your item.

I believe that the JVC bracket for the JVC HD (IDX Kit) comes with the proper cable.

I purchase a battery from Batteries4Broadcast and that battery comes with a D tap right on the battery. In theory I could run the HD and a small on camera monitor at the same time using both D taps.

I'm using the D Tap on the IDX mount with splitter for the PAG light and the DR-HD100. I only connect the DR-HD100 when the battery is getting low.

I'm going to measure the space I have left later today.

I just tried to fit 2 Endura 7s batteries and that doesn't fit. The gap between the IDX mount and DR-HD100 bracket is about 6cm.

I also have 2 stackable IDX E7 batts. Also very interested in using the d-tap power since I highly covet a firestore drive. Also like to power my lectro receiver and litepanel, so I'm looking at a splitter. I'd never run 3, since the lectro can easily go to 9 volts.
The E7s is not stackable. at first I hoped that the cheaper batt could "feed" the power link, but it receives from a different place. I guess I could hang a Batteries4Broadcast with a d-tap on back, and just dedicate that to accessory power. This should work, right?
With the JVC/IDX mount priced at $300+, I'm very motivated to find alternate rigging for wireless and firestore. BEC has a bunch of useful modular mounts, and I'm not above bending aluminum or strapping a bag on either....

I just got an email from my dealer, he told me I can adjust the bracket so I can fit a E7 and E7s! I'm going to check this as soon I'm back home.
