I want to replace my Kinor 16 lead/acid battery with a more modern (li-on) version. However, on opening the case I found nine small cells inside, connected in series. Surely this makes 18 volts, rather than 12? Also, does anyone know the amp hour rating for the original battery? I'm guessing 1 to 1.2 but I would like to know exactly. Thanks in advance.

You mean original battery of Kinor-16 SX-2M camera with metal case , power socket and power switch at top ?
This is russian silver-zinc 5Ah cells - 8 pcs, the total voltage - 12 v.
May be you have upgraded version.

The original version of 29EPSS motor have electronic with do not high voltage reserve ( russian transistors MP-16, MP-25), that's why, i do not recommend to connect 18 v battery.
The original user manual of 29EPSS motor told about battery with 12v + 2,5 / - 1.2v.

As of my practical experience, Kinor-16 can be use with any power battery 1.5Ah, 4ah, 7 ah.
The 7ah battery can run of Kinor with 120 m film magazines of all 8 hours shooting day. i have one spare 7 ah battery, but, this is low-activity spare battery.
4ah battery will need 2..3 pcs at set.
But, if the weight and size of battery impornatn for you, you can use modern small size batteries with 1.5..2 ah power.


From other side, the original edition of 29EPSS motor have one speed 25 fps only and have analog system of speed stabilization with 2.5% precision.
If you visit to my site, you can find many versions of upgraded 29EPSS motor to crystal sync speed with digital film counter, remote control, digital voltmeter of battery.
The upgrade 29EPSS motor to time lapse version possible too.

The upgraded version of motor have high voltage reserve and can use any batteries up to 24 v, to have " no synch " led and sound alarm and will give you high quality footages.

You can send me any additional questions about motor, camera, lenses to my PM.
