Hi all,

I am thinking of purchasing a battery from a local (london) store to use with my 16mm Arriflex BL. Just after some advise from people out there as to whether or not I am choosing the correct battery and how I go about connecting it to a 4 pin XLR. \

Firstly is the 7Ah L/Acid Bat 12V battery listed here correct for the Arri?

Many thanks

I had the same problem until recently. Now I have obtained a sealed lead-acid system with 12V & 14Ah and it's very convenient. My guess is that you could use any 12V lead-acid battery.

Regarding the XLR, I have a 5-pin with plus (red) connected to pin 4 and minus (black) connected to pin 1.

After you buy the charger and XLR cable for that one at Maplins, you might be better off to consider this http://duallcamera.c...sChargers.shtml
