IDX Endura Battery System
Posted 24 July 2006 - 04:00 PM
Does anyone have experience with the IDX Endura Battery System? I'm not sure if I want to simply replace the Dionics with Dionics or convert to a new system in the IDX Endura series.
I thought I would check here for any "hands-on" opinions of the Enduras.

You'll also have to get a new charger for the new style of batteries, if you're switching over.
The best thing for you to do is contact IDX directly; the folks there have always been really nice to me and will answer any questions or concerns you have.

Empire Scientific LiOn V-Mount batts. with Pro-Pacs available by request. The LiOn's last twice as long or more,
weigh a fraction of a "brick" and compared to Anton/Bauer or IDX, cost a whole lot less, including the chargers.
The only downside is that the 95ah smaller version is so lightweight that the cameras are front heavy, but
the larger 130ah version, with moving the shoulder mount forward, has better balance. The V-mount
system is pretty popular and the price points of the Empire Scientific batts. and chargers is great, a
95ah batt. is $149, 130ah is $229 and 2-position charger with large LCD display is $300. Anton/Bauer
and IDX are much more expensive for batts. and chargers.
