Extra high-capacity 14.4V Lithium Ion battery for Sony U-type mount cameras FS5, FS7, PMW series camcorder, and more.

The 48Wh IDX 14.4V Li-Ion Battery for Sony BP-U Mount Cameras provides power for your Sony FS7, FS5, and PMW-series cameras. It incorporates a USB port and D-Tap Advanced power port which can be used for powering your accessories. A four-LED gauge indicates the charge state of your battery. The battery's internal circuitry permits it to be charged in both IDX and Sony chargers, and provides over-charge, over-discharge, and high load overcurrent protection.

This battery is compatible with and powers Sony FS5, FS7, and PMW-series cameras.

It incorporates a USB port and D-Tap Advanced power port which can be used for powering your accessories.

The D-Tap Advanced port is compatible with D-Tap plugs for power output. However, with a compatible charger (not included), you can charge the battery via the D-Tap Advanced port.

The USB output port is not a data port and is only for power. It provides 5V at 2.3A. It is an A-type connector and becomes active when you push and hold the CHECK/USB ON button for longer than three seconds. It will turn off once the cable has been removed or no power has been drawn for more than 30 minutes.

How to properly store batteries:
* For short term storage (day-to-day, week-week) = Store fully charged

* For long term storage (month-to-month, three months+) = Maintain a 20-40% charge in a cool and dry room for every 3
 months of non-use. Check batteries periodically and charge when necessary. All lithium-Ion cells have a self-discharge rate,
 so it is important to properly maintain and check batteries during long-term storage. Otherwise the battery cells will begin to
 discharge, which will lead to the battery becoming over-discharged and the cell balance collapsing (dead).

*Periods of complete inactivity can damage Li-ion cells

Note: Keep stored batteries away from heat. (Examples include environments such as automobile trunks, heaters, ovens, and stoves)

How to properly discharge batteries:
* When using with video or lighting equipment, power consumption of the equipment must be equal to or less than the max
 discharge capacity of the battery (The max discharge loads are listed below).
* Note that Li-Ion Batteries can be used in ambient temperatures of -20°C~50°C, but runtimes will be shorter in extreme high
 and low temperatures.
* Stop discharge at 12V to reduce cell damage. 

How temperature affects battery charge:
* Low ambient temperatures may cause slow activation of electrolytes, which results in a decreased rate of charge and
* High ambient temperatures may accelerate cell deterioration.

Do Not Completely discharge Li-ion batteries prior to storage
Periods of complete inactivity can damage Li-ion cells
