There are a few Alexa Classic EVs up on eBay right now at tempting prices, but they are lacking battery plates. The part number is there in the manual for the AB plate, but I'm not finding them listed for sale anywhere othere than a couple of places that list them but don't seem to carry stock.

If you've shot with EVs, what power solution(s) did you use and what can you recommend? A dumb option would seem to be to use a generic AB plate and put an Alexa Lemo on it, but I do like the no dangling wires thing assoxiated with the OEM plate.

Advice gratefully appreciated! :)

Just contact your local arri office, they can get the plate for you and also offer some info on the cameras if you have serial numbers.
