Now that we are putting a heavy weight on the HVX202 handle, two things we can do to minimise long term damage ...

a) Offload the AB Dionic battery - use the 4 pin power connector and the AB plug to put the battery into your backpack / waist belt, etc.

b) Get a ZACUTO HVX200 Heavy Load Support - URL ...

Yes - I know - it costs US$75 ... but, think of the repair bill (if it is indeed possible at all) if the handle breaks .....

Yes, this Zacuto support sounds good. Overpriced, but good for what we are doing!

I know it is way overpriced - but, compared with the repair bill (if it can be repaired at all) - this is insurance :-), I think it is okay - if we start loading the handle with the BTLH80 each time.
