Anton/Bauer has introduced the Titon SL series of 14.4-volt Gold Mount and V-Mount batteries.
Currently available in 150Wh and 240Wh models, the Titon SL features an all-new cell design that allows the batteries to be smaller and lighter, meaning that the power and performance found Anton/Bauer’s Titon 150 is now packed into the same size as a standard 90Wh battery.
Titon SL batteries deliver long-lasting power to a wide range of DSLR, mirrorless, ENG/broadcast and digital cine cameras. For instance, a single Titon SL 240 can power a Sony PDW-850 for up to six hours and a Blackmagic Pocket camera for up to 17 hours. In addition, Titon SLs can power some popular LEDs, video villages, production monitors and bonded cellular transmission solutions. A single Titon SL 240 will power an LED light like the Gemini 1x1 Soft for more than an hour at full power, and two Titon SL 240s on a dual bracket will yield up to 2.5 hours of power for the same light.
Each Gold Mount or V-Mount Titon SL includes P-TAP and high-speed Smart USB ports for wireless transmitters, LED lights, follow-focus lens controllers, monitors, smartphones and tablets. With the Titon SL’s onboard LCD screen or the camera’s viewfinder display, operators have a down-to-the-minute view of the exact runtime and remaining power for the camera and accessories being powered.
Titon SL offers an operating temperature range of -4°F to 140°F, ensuring its reliability even in extreme conditions. The battery is compatible with Anton/Bauer legacy chargers.
“When we introduced the Titon line, we set a new standard for durable mobile power by offering content creators a perfect combination of performance, reliability and versatility,” says Chris Gaughan, Anton/Bauer’s product manager. “With the Titon SL, we’re taking it a step further by packing in even more performance without adding weight or increasing the size — and at a price point that enables even newer ICCs and freelancers to acquire Anton/Bauer without breaking their budgets. With a battery that delivers longer runtimes, greater mobility and less fatigue when using a handheld rig, Titon SL makes it easier than ever for customers to create exceptional content.”
