Hawk-Woods Reel-Power batteries offer great service life employing four contacts to carry the power, unlike many 14v systems that rely simply on two and prone to reliability issues. RP batteries are suitable for both 24v cameras and lighting up to 10Amps= 250Watts! Tested and approved (as used by ARRI rentals for 5 years)

The new addition RP-350N supports the longest run-time from any single on board battery providing over 180min of run time.




WHY SHOULD I CHOOSE

26V REEL-POWER?

There are plenty of good reasons as to why you should opt for a 26v battery system for ARRI camera’s especially their latest ARRI LF camera. Reel Power is the perfect choice for native 24v cinematic cameras such as ARRI Alexa, Amira, Mini, and high-speed cameras such as the Phantom 4k.

Hawk-Woods have been supporting ARRI with Reel Power onboard 26v batteries for over 5 years, so this is a proven solution which has been used across their existing cameras such as the ALEXA 65.





WHY NOT JUST USE

14V SYSTEMS

Using a 14v system, you would need two batteries on an adaptor to provide any power to the camera, due to the LF’s minimum voltage requirement of 19.5v, this is adding extra weight without including a dual battery plate AKA “T-Plate or Shark Fin”.

With a 26v system, there is a single direct fitting which mounts to the LF and works across existing ALEXA camera’s keeping this system as universal as possible. The adaptor offers two 3 pin Fischer connectors which can power further accessories direct off the batteries nominal voltage.

Benefits of using 26v over 14v, when you have a higher voltage you are demanding less current from the battery.



So, does this mean the 26v battery will run the camera for longer if the batteries were the same capacity? Short answer…. No. However, over a period the 26v battery would outrun any 14v battery (which started off at the same capacity) as the 14v battery has had to work a lot harder to power the camera, so cell deuteriation would take place. So essentially your 26v Reel Power batteries are going to last you a lot longer.
