JVC HM600/650 Battery

Hi all,

I just purchased the JVC HM600. It's my first JVC so not too sure if they generally accept batteries from other JVC models or not.

The camera came with this one:
JVC SSL-JVC50 7.4V IDX Lithium-Ion Battery for JVC SSL-JVC50 B&H

Does anyone have any idea if any particular batteries from other JVC cameras will fit?

I ask because the battery I linked to above isn't available in my country, so it's going to cost me almost $300 per battery to ship them here.

Thanks for any info.

I don't think that other JVC batteries will fit, because this battery has been newly developed for the three new camcorders. But if JVC can't sell you such a battery (which is strange enough), maybe IDX can? That's the company that manufacture these batteries for JVC, and according to their website, IDX has two representatives in New Zealand: Panavision NZ and Pro Video Systems, both based in Auckland.

Yeah I saw that. Unfortunately it's only open to US residents.

Just FYI, SWIT just came out with their battery for JVC HM600/650 - Model S-8I50. It is higher capacity at 47WH, and has a DC output jack and a USB jack for charging smartphones.

Hi Alex,

I went to your site, but couldn't find the batteries, you mentioned - nor other places on the net. Do you have a link to it?

Thanks a mllion, Alex.

Sounds interesting, indeed - maybe some US users can buy it from you - I'll see if I can find a dealer in Europe who has them.

Thanks again for the link...

The HM600 sounded great but the exorbitant battery prices creates a reason to pause.

Re: JVC HM600/650 Battery

If you believe the battery prices for the 600 are exorbitant, you must not have even had a 'full size' camera like the HM700. My one AB Doniac would get a couple of the 600 batteries. just sayin.
