I've just been made aware of cheap V-lock and Anton Baur battery plates on ebay e.g.
These are incredibly cheap compared to models available on more professional websites e.g. CVP:
If I'm looking simply to power focus monitors and Teradek receivers is there an issue with the cheaper models apart from the likely inferior build quality (I would get a spare at that price!)? My only concern stopping from ordering right away is that a poor design might in some way increase the risk of damaging a £1500 monitor, or almost as expensive Teradek receiver?
Also, am I correct to think that the D-Taps on these are unregulated and would just pass through the current based on whatever battery was mounted so I'd need to be careful not to connect a 12v device if it was configured for a 24v battery?
