Does anyone make them, and by that if you do own one, what company do you reccomend?  I tried calling up BESCOR this morning, but they got out of prosumer batteries years ago.  I had a couple of belts for two old Canon kits I used to have, but they've gone missing during my move.

 

Thanks for any reply.

I guess that's a "no".

Not that I've heard of.

Only solution I could think of would be a traditional battery belt and a 12v converter. Bulky, but you'd run it for a week.

Thanks Phil.  That's pretty much what I'm looking for....maybe an AC power adaptor that has an adaptor that plugs into a belt.  I really hate battery swapping.
