Digital Li-ion Battery

V-mount camera battery

The Swit S-8340S is a 160Wh V-mount battery for Cine and ENG applications. It features a dual heavy duty housing which has attained an IP66 dust and weatherproof rating. This model also features rapid charging when used with the applicable Swit charger.

Strong Protective Structure

Dual housing, Rubber cover & IP66 protection

The S-8340S has an innovative dual housing structure consisting of an inner cell cage and outer anti-shock housing with rubber covers. The new structure makes the battery strong, anti-shock and protects the battery from drop & impact accidents. The battery has also been rated as IP66 class water/dust proof. Note - An IP66 Enclosure means that the battery's 'Ingress Protection' is totally dust tight and protected against heavy seas or powerful jets of water.

160wh / 11.1Ah Capacity

Largest Capacity for airline boarding

Inside the Swit S-8340S are 18 high class 18650 battery cells which reach 160Wh / 11.1Ah high capacity. This is the largest capacity allowed to board an airplane.* The battery can run approx 6 hours for normal ENG cameras, and approx 2 hours for ARRI ALEXA.

*Please check with your airline to verify their individual battery regulations before flying

6A Fast Charging

Using SWIT S-3812S fast charger

S-8340S supports 6A fast charging by SWIT S-3812 fast charger, saving more than 50% charging time compared to standard chargers. The 160Wh S-8340S battery can be charged from 0 to 80% after 1.5 hours, and fully charged within 2.5 hours. With a discharging time of up to 6 hours, battery anxiety is a thing of the past.

High Load for Cine Cameras

Max 150W / 12A constant output

Normal Li-ion batteries offer 100W/8A output and are suitable for most ENG cameras. However, higher end Cine Cameras such as Arri's ALEXA require around 85W high draw which is too heavy for normal Li-ion batteries. The battery life will be greatly reduced if used for extended periods drawing full power. Moreover, if accessories such as monitors and lighting are powered from the same source, the total draw will be above 100W which is above the capacity of regular li-ion battiers. Using Swit's S-8340S high-load battery you can get MAX 140W/12A constant power output, enabling you to power more high draw cameras, lighting and other equipment easily. Also, using the Swit S-8340S in this manner won’t reduce the battery's life expectancy.

Digital Power Info

8-LED & SONY viewfinder reading

The S-8340S battery pack has an innovative 8-LED power indicators. When free or charging, the LEDs will indicate current capacity percentage. When the battery is in use the LEDs will display the remaining running time at the current discharging power, accurate to 15 minutes. The battery pack also incorporates an intelligent digital info chip compatible with SONY cameras and can display remaining minutes in the camera viewfinder.

D-tap Socket

The battery also has a D-tap DC output socket on the top of the casing to power monitors, lighting or other equipment. The maximum output current of this D-tap is 10A.
