    Provides plenty of power, very useful. The only nitpick is that the 4-pin XLR cable on the regulator is just long enough to use the battery as pictured, as a baseplate. If you want to mount the battery somewhere else on your rig, the cable likely won’t reach the camera. Luckily, XLR power cable extenders aren’t too hard to find.
