Swit releases huge capacity PB-C420S 420Wh battery

Swit has released what they state is the largest battery capacity available today. The PB-C420S 420Wh battery consists of 24pcs Li-ion cells, 14.4V nominal voltage, 420Wh, 29.1Ah capacity, and provides two D-tap
sockets for camera devices. With Sony and RED cameras the power info will display in the viewfinder. A simple and clean 5- LED digital power indicator is on the front of the battery. The new PB-C420S is available in V-Lock. Not sure if Swit will release the new battery in other mounts such as B and Gold Mount.

The PB-C420S supports 100W / 6A fast charging that will save 50% on charging time. The 420Wh battery can be charged from 0 to 80% in approximately 3.9 hours, and fully charged within 5.3 hours.

250W Constant High Load

Swit states the PB-C420S outputs at least 250W / 20A high load even at 1% capacity (Peak load up to 305W), to drive high-power Cine cameras and on-camera devices together. The high-load cells will also ensure battery life compared to normal-load batteries. The new battery features over-current protection of 24A.

Batteries are little by little getting higher in capacity and able to increase the amps making them more capable to power those power-hungry LED lights as well as we have at full power and for longer periods of time. With a peak load of 305W, a pair of Swit PC-C420Ss should be able to power a 600-watt light at full power. That is something I would like to test!
