Film Gear Review: Game Changing Maxoak V-Mount Battery

If you use V-mount batteries in the field for your cameras, LED lights or want a battery that acts as a power cell to charge your phone or laptop via USB connection, look no further than the Maxoak V-mount battery.

We used them on “This is Meg” and never had a battery die during the 8-10 hour shooting days. Cinematographer Austin Nordell recently purchased several more of the batteries after being impressed with their stamina and form factor on his recent narrative and documentary shoots like “Marvel’s Captain America: 75 heroic years”.

He left his Blackmagic Ursa Mini 4.6k recording a timelapse in RAW 3:1 compression at 4.6k resolution for over two hours and the battery only dropped a single peg in power. While at Sundance, the batteries were used to power the LED lights in a series of back to back interviews, going less than halfway down in battery life after a six-hour stretch.

Each battery has a USB port, a DTaP connection, and its own charger, so there is no need to buy additional gear to get up and running.

As far as we can tell, these are by far the longest lasting v-mounts we have ever used. The Maxoak Batteries currently come in two flavors:
