I have an Aaton 16v onboard battery.  Why 16v?  What is it used for? My LTRs use 12v batteries.

You probably have the Li-Ion version, which when fully charged can exceed 16VDC.

The 16v looks like it has an extra row of cells.  Both batteries pictured say 2,000 mA.

It could also be a 14.4VDC NiMH type.

The higher voltage batteries came out with the LTR 54 for shooting at the higher frame rate. I bought a couple when I got my old LTR modified to run at the higher frame rate.

Hm.  If it's for the LTR-54 with the higher frame rate, I should include it (and the charger) if I decide to sell mine.

 

Would it hurt to use a 16v battery at normal speeds in an LTR-7 (or LTR-54, for that matter)?

They were more or less the standard battery with the LTR 54, I used it on my LTR without any issues at standard frame rates, you set these on camera.

Good to know.  I'd hate to fry anything!
