What a brilliant idea! Thanks George - I forgot that if a battery is present then there would be an automatic switch over to battery power in case the DC input is interrupted.

Now I need to see how I can attach a V-mount adaptor whilst leaving the battery compartment accessible. Anybody out there with some brilliant ideas?

I just received a message back from Swit Electronics in China. They have confirmed that the S-8U62 battery will not work with the EX3, but that they are currently developing one for it. They expect to have it ready before long, but no real ETA.

I believe B&H are selling them on special order:

http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/cont...=571124&is=REG

There is no photo of the item as yet and I have sent them an e-mail to confirm that this item is indeed the new Swit battery with the D-Tap but have not received any reply yet.

I do not think this is the same unit. The part number is different as is the wattage.

I've been working with the BeBob CoCo EX3 for the last couple of weeks along with the Omega Power System V-mount battery with integrated charger.

Last time I spoke with my contacts at BeBob, there was no decision about their marketing plans with the Omega battery. It is a 130 watt V-mount battery with a simple 3-prong electrical connector which allows you to charge battery directly from any 120-240v power outlet. Charges battery completely in about 6 hours. Very convenient for the road.

The BeBob product is selling around 300 euro-- haven't seen a US price yet but that should put it around $450 US. Interesting to see what the A-B price will be.

Hmmm. That looks very interesting.

I'm sure that they either attach to the cold shoe (like bebob) or hook into the strap mount (like mine). There really aren't too many mounting options. From looking at the pics, I can't quite tell.
