Anyone know where I can find a battery for a variable speed motor for an arri 2c?

At http://www.batteryspace.com/

 

Go to this page:  http://www.batterysp...ack-series.aspx

 

Any of the packs with a capacity superior to 4Ah will work. The higher the Ah, the more running time you will get.

 

The 10Ah model is the best. Be sure to get the recommended charger.

 

If you just want to do some quick tests, you can make up a pack out of 3x 6V lantern batteries in series. Very inexpensive.

 

Cheers,

Jean-Louis

Cinepower is also a great resource.

Those Cinepower packs must be ten times the cost of a Batteryspace pack.

Will this one do the job?

and another thing, the motors have two pins as connectors. How do i go about connecting these two pins to the battery?

No power cable? Those are not easy to find.
You might have to the motor modified and install a permanent hard wire cable.

Otherwise, the 5A battery is fine.

You have a cable for the variable speed motor.
Two sockets, one bigger, one smaller.
You just need to put two banana sockets at the output of ypur battery pack.

As for the constant speed motor on the camera base, it will certainly have a different tupe of connector. I can't see in the picture.

The constant speed motor also has two pins.
