The PAG PAGlink PL96e Intelligent Linking Battery has a capacity of 96 watt-hours, making it unrestricted in quantity for air transportation. Linking two doubles the capacity to 192Wh; three batteries provide 288Wh. No other system offers as much power. The PL96e incorporates a 5-light Run-time & Capacity indicator which shows remaining camera run-time in hours and minutes. When linked, run-time is displayed for the total of all batteries connected. Battery state-of-charge is displayed as a percentage, in 6 increments. The display maintains its accuracy by tracking the performance, and adjusting calibration values to compensate for the ageing of the cells. The PL96e can be linked to any other PAGlink V-Mount battery for charge or discharge, regardless of rated capacity or state-of-charge.
PAGlink is the only system that allows you to link multiple batteries, in any state of charge. Up to 8 batteries can be linked for charge or discharge. Linking enables you to keep the camera running at vital moments, it allows capacities to be combined, greatly extending run-time, and provides a high-current draw of up to 12A, ideal for powering a camera and multiple accessories simultaneously. PAGlink batteries incorporate heavy duty contacts, engineered for high-load applications.
Linked batteries form a network that enables them to communicate with each other, managing the output safely, and preventing the transfer of charge between batteries. Unlike other systems the linked batteries can be in any state of charge. PAGlink also allows batteries to be hot-swapped for continuous, uninterrupted power.
As well as being more intelligent, PAGlink batteries are smaller and lighter, with a higher energy density than any V-Mount system marketed to date. PAGlink batteries feature long-life, premier-quality Li-Ion cells, which have no memory effect, and are completely recyclable. In keeping with PAG's total battery design philosophy they are constructed to provide the longest possible working life.
PAGlink batteries support four different camera data systems that display capacity in the viewfinder: Sony, IDX, Red and Anton-Bauer. The battery recognizes the system's data protocol and adapts automatically when connected. The battery can be configured easily for compatibility with the Red camera data system by the user (see instruction booklet).
The battery case is manufactured from high-impact, injection-moulded polycarbonate which is inherently very strong and also used for motorcycle crash helmets. The internal case design also protects the cell-pack against damaging impact.
The PL96T has been tested to UN standards by an independent authority and certified to comply with air transport safety regulations. It has a capacity below 100 Watt-hours and is therefore suitable for air transport on passenger aircraft, in hand-luggage, without quantity restriction.
PLEASE NOTE: Since this product is a Lithium Ion Battery and due to FAA regulation, this item is restricted to ground transportation in the lower 48 contiguous states and cannot ship to Alaska, Hawaii or Puerto Rico.
