Tilta V-lock mount

Hi guys
I'm a little confused about the Tilta v-lock unit - The one at the link below.

They mention 7.2v out but the socket on the side says 8v - I'm presuming the dtap is putting out 12v so where in the 7.2 coming from on this plate ?

Anyone got one and have any experience of it ??

I have one but I actually use the Gold Mount version.

As I recall the D_Tap provides unregulated nominal 12V - as the battery loses charge the voltage will drop.

I think the other voltages available are regulated, ie provide the marked voltage as long as there's enough juice in the battery. Must have a small inverter built into the plate so you can bring out a variety of voltages.

Hi Jim - thanks for your post.

So is the 8v output ok for 7.2v devices? Time and again when these are written about they say 12 7.2 and 5v but then on the device itself it says 8v? - this is some what confusing!?

Re: Tilta V-lock mount

I doubt that the difference between 7.2V and 8V would destroy anything and I don't know how accurate it is - I have the plate but I don't have any v-lock batteries. If I did I would get a little inexpensive voltmeter and measure it to see.

Well, actually I'd probably really just plug it in and see if smoke comes out! Outside of microelectronic I don't know of very many real world things that wont tolerate a +/- 10% voltage
