Two-channel adapter plate with Hotswap/charging function for Vmicro batteries
Munich, October 25, 2023. The Munich-based battery manufacturer bebob is expanding its portfolio with the versatile new adapter, Coco-Vmicro2. Compatible with two Vmicro batteries of any capacity, the Coco-Vmicro2 allows for battery replacement during camera operation thanks to its Hotswap function. As a junction box, it features numerous outputs for accessories and can also be used as a charging station through the integrated D-Tap connector. The Coco-Vmicro2 is perfect for all V-Mount cine cameras, including the new Sony Burano.
One adapter, numerous applications
The Coco-Vmicro2 is based on two V-Mount adapter plates for Vmicro batteries with Hotswap and charging functions, as well as additional outputs for connecting accessories. Both slots are compatible with Vmicro batteries of any capacity (45Wh, 98Wh, 150Wh, or 200Wh) – once the first battery is depleted, the second one is automatically activated to power the camera. The status of each battery’s charge can be checked using two five-stage LED indicators on both sides of the adapter. With the DC-In D-Tap connector on the Coco-Vmicro2, the connected batteries can be charged directly on the camera using an S1micro fast charger.
Various outputs allow for the connection and power supply of versatile accessories – be it monitors, camera lights, microphones, or transmitters. Thus, the Coco-Vmicro2 expands the range of possibilities, especially for particularly minimally equipped cine cameras, such as the new Sony Burano.
bebob’s new adapter measures 90 x 140 x 35 mm (W x H x D) and weighs 620 grams.
