PAG launches 99Wh Mini PAGlink Battery

LONDON, UK, AUGUST 2020 - Following on from the introduction of the 50Wh Gold Mount Mini PAGlink battery, which began shipping in early 2020, PAG is launching a new 99Wh version, the MPL99G.

Mini PAGlink has all the benefits of PAG’s established intelligent linking battery technology in a more compact and lightweight format; in addition, it is the first broadcast battery series to incorporate user-changeable output units.

The new 99Wh Li-Ion battery is compatible with full-sized Gold Mount plates as well as PAG’s new mini Gold Mount design, which is better suited to smaller cameras.

The MPL99G is ideal for powering broadcast cameras or digital cinema type cameras and accessories, simultaneously, where it reduces on-board weight. The compact format is also ideal for powering smaller, 4K cameras such as the Panasonic EVA1, or the Sony FS5. The battery has outputs to power the accessories broadcasters require, providing a single power source for the entire set-up. It incorporates two, fixed, 12V D-Tap outputs and a 5V 2A USB that can be swapped by the user for a Hirose, Lemo or another D-Tap. These output units are already available with the PAGlink PowerHub.

Unlike other ‘mini’ format batteries, Mini PAGlink offers intelligent linking for charge or discharge. The patented PAGlink digital technology allows the linking of up to 8 batteries, of any capacity, in any state-of-charge, including the previous generation of Gold Mount PAGlink batteries. Their capacities can be accessed in combination, to provide an increased current draw of up to 12A. A battery can be added or hot-swapped, when power is low, to ensure continued shooting. Sharing the current demand between batteries prolongs overall life and provides a better return on investment; Mini PAGlink batteries are guaranteed for 2 years with unlimited cycles in that period.

Compatibility with established PAGlink Gold Mount chargers, as well as chargers of other manufacturers, makes Mini PAGlink batteries versatile and economic to integrate.

Mini PAGlink batteries are the first to incorporate PAG’s new modular design which makes them fully-serviceable. Replacement of modules, including the cell-pack, at local, authorized service centers, makes servicing turnaround faster, whilst maintaining compliance with UN standards and IATA flight safety regulations.

The ergonomic case design is combined with a robust and flexible construction, to survive the harshest working conditions. It features a ‘Soft-Touch’ coated outer band for safer handling and added resilience.

Other features include a high-resolution numeric display of run-time, capacity and battery data; and digital communication to display capacity in the camera VF/LCD.
