IDX increases capacity in new generation battery line-up

Increased capacity is now available across the whole range of IDX Lithium Ion batteries.
As a result, all Endura and NP-L batteries can run cameras for extended periods or keep more power-hungry HD equipment operating for longer. The sizes the original packages are unchanged from the models they replace. Also the increased performance has been achieved while continuing the IDX policy of keeping within the IATA limits for the easy carriage of multiple Lithium-Ion based batteries. So there is still no need for special containers and labelling when flying with IDX batteries while maximum capacity is now 196Wh when using IDX PowerLink.
In the new ENDURA range of V-mount batteries the highest capacity has been raised nearly 20 percent with 98Wh available from the E-10S and double that when docking two of the E-10 batteries that include PowerLink. In addition, the E-7S and the dockable E-7 offer 71Wh capacity within the old E-50 form factor. For those using NP-style batteries, the new NP-L7 and NP-L7S provide 71Wh of capacity within the familiar NP-L50 package – which is now replaced by the new models.
IDX is well able to support the demands of operating the increased capacity batteries. It has already launched the VL-4S 4-channel multi-chemistry simultaneous quick charger that provides individual charging regimes so the each battery is ensured a fast turnaround.
