Looking for a good battery for my NPR

I found this.
Check out this product from B&H Photo Video.
PRB-12XLRNC Starved Electrolyte (Lead Acid) Battery Belt (12v, 12 amp hours) Cigarette and 4-Pin XLR Connectors, without Charger

I did a quick search for Bescor on the forums and didn't turn up much. Apologies if this might belong under an older post.

HI, Yes, that looks like a decent battery. At 12Ah, it should last for quite a while -- more than you're likely to ever use on any single day's shoot.

Basically, all you need is a Lead Acid 12V. battery of 4Ah or more and a power cord terminated by an XLR-4 female connector (pin 1 is ground, pin 4 is 12V.). Lead acid batteries are cheap and solid, and they come in many sizes (and amperage). THey are the same that are used in cars, but smaller -- often used in R-C model airplanes, cars; etc.

Best, B.
