30v battery solution

I have a set of dracast Boltray lights which run on 30vDc off an ac power adapter. I'd like to come up with a battery solution and I'm thinking about 2 v-mounts in series - the specs say the light runs on 28-32v. anyone tried anything like this?

Re: 30v battery solution

gee - maybe no one has? I have a v mount charger that is not working and it can provide 15v from 2 v-mounts connected in parallel so surely it's possible to provide 30v in series

Re: 30v battery solution

Correct, if you connect them in series, it will work! I did the same with Anton Bauer batteries. My AB batteries were 14.4 volts, which powered 30v lights and such just fine.
