The VB212 mini V-Mount Battery stands out with its highly integrated, ultracompact design, making it ideal for filmmakers who require a powerful yet portable battery solution. Weighing only 1345 grams, including the charging cable, and measuring just 132.0 x 83.0 x 80.0mm, the VB212 is travel-friendly, ensuring that filmmakers can carry it without compromising their mobility.

This battery is built with premium materials, including aluminium alloy, silicone, TPU, and PC V0, ensuring it is not only lightweight but also durable, heat-resistant, and flame-retardant. The design includes four layers of aluminium frames inside, with a silicone coating on the outside, providing a robust and shock-absorbent exterior that is also scratch-resistant.

The VB212 boasts a unique intelligent Battery Management System (BMS) that supports a 140W maximum fast charging capability, allowing the battery to be fully charged in just 2.5 hours. The system utilizes imported top-class large-capacity LG battery cells that endure repeated charging and discharging, ensuring both safety and stability under a wide range of conditions.

VB212 goes beyond being just a battery; it represents freedom – the freedom to power and charge every device on or off set, eliminating charge anxiety. With a 212W capacity, versatile I/0 options, and 140W of PD 3.1, the VB212 stands out as the ultimate battery. I take pride in endorsing this product and am eager to see how creators harness the power of the VB212 to tell their stories
