How much voltage does it take to get the LTR54 to do 54fps. I know 16V is good but can i do it with less like 14.4V? How much volt can the camera take, I guess a 16.8V battery would be ok, or not? Why I´m asking is because I´m planning to adapt some powertool batteries to my Aaton as that would be a much cheaper solution than using the original onboardbatteries. I have allready built myself lead acid blockbatteries and they work great but it would be nice to have some onboards that can get the camera running at 54fps.

As far as I know it'll got to 54fps with 12V, it's only when going to 72fps that it needs 16V. My 16V batteries often read 17+ volts on my XTR Plus display.

The LTR can go up to 32fps on 12v. You can use a 14.4v battery to get to 54fps, but it will need to have a fresh full charge, which means that it will be somewhere in the 16v range. My 16v batts top off over 18v coming off the charger.
