I currently use Sony NPF series batteries with an Atomos Power Station to power my GH5 and DR60D (and provide backup power for my Atomos), but I'm seriously looking into a V-mount solution in a hopes to eliminate the need for so many batteries.
However, can someone here with knowledge of how batteries work explain something to me?
I'm looking at a 14.8V 160Wh, 10400mAh V-mount battery, which is nearly $200. However, comparing that to the NPF batteries, at least in terms of capacity, I'm having trouble seeing how the V-mount would provide more power storage, given that an NPF-970 runs about $15 and has only slightly less mAh's, at around 9,000. Does the 14.8 vs 7.4v different also play into battery life?
